Finance for Riding Around the World

I record what I spend my money on every day whilst travelling around the world on a motorcycle. My spending is documented below by country and category, such as food, petrol, beer, and so on.

I consider myself to be a budget traveller and my daily average spend is 24.44 GBP. This includes everything I have purchased whilst being on the road, such as tyres and oils.

Notes:

  • Data correct up to 21/03/2020.
  • The currency is GBP.
  • Visas are sometimes purchased in embassies before entering a country; therefore, a visa cost listed for a country may not be for that country.
  • I have studied with family and friends, so accommodation would have cost more.
