My journey in few numbers

Too many things to say after this journey, too many though but not structured enough to make a good post. So, I’ll do it the easy way : sum-up the trip with numbers while thinking of a better way to talk about my experiences.

14 Months on the road, 25 countries visited, 32 000km by hitch-hiking, 8000km by plane (3 flights – 4000km just for the flight Malaysia – Australia), around 2000km by trains or bus.

3028 € : My budget for the whole trip including :

  • 500€ for the flights and the boats
  • 240€ of VISA
  • 350€ of clothes, glasses and trekking gears (my list of equipment)
  • 70€ of bank fees for international transaction
It means that I actually spent an average of 130€ per months or 4.50€ per day for food and accommodation.

2 months : the longest time spend in the same country (India)

3 weeks : Longest time spend in the same place (Tacompai, Thailand)

4167m : Highest altitude I’ve been to. (Toubkal, Morocco)… The Annapurna base camp is “only” at 4131m.

1 day : I’ve been really sick (fever) just one day… on my birthday :p.

1 day and 1 night : the longest time have been waiting to get a lift. It was at the Senegal-Mauritania border.

1300km : My longest lift which was with two teams of the Mongol Rally in Kazakhstan

1 bad guy on a thousand of good one : I met only 1 bad person who threatened me to force me to pay for the ride while I was hitch-hiking. But after yelling at him with people around, he gave up. He represents only 0.1% of all the people who gave me a lift. I don’t know how many people helped me but it should be around 1000 as I consider that I was hitch-hiking maybe 15 days per month with an average of 5 lift per day of hitch-hiking. For a guy, you’re more likely to meet a bad guy while walking in your city than hitch-hiking around the world.

13kg : The average weight I’ve been carrying (food and water included)

Get destroyed: 2 pairs of sandals, my unbreakable glasses, one trouser and one t-shirt.

8000 pictures : Around 8000 shot since my departure from senegal, precisely 7621 since the first of april 2010. How many keeper ? 1161 since april.

I’m running out of imagination so if you think that’s a data is missing or you have a question about this journey, just leave me a comment or use the contact page to send me a private message and I’ll answer you.

Thanks

    […] Jusqu’ici, j’avais une approche assez simple du budget : 200 € par mois que ce soit en Europe ou en Inde. 5 € par jour pour les frais de logement et nourriture et 50 € extra pour payer les Visas et autres imprévus. Si je dépassais le budget un certain mois, j’essayais de moins dépenser le mois suivant. Pour avoir les montants exact de mes dépenses durant mes 14 mois de voyage avec 3000€, vous pouvez allez lire ce post. […]
