When we left on the first part of our Europetrip, we decided to keep track of a few things that maybe would be fun. During college I (Sanne) had to keep a notebook with random details. From those info’s I had to make infographics.
With this post we wanted to summarize our 6 month journey with random stuff that we thought would be interesting! Let us know, what do you keep track of regulary?
So first up is the nights we spend during those 6 months. We camped at 18 different campsites in France, Spain & Portugal. We stayed at 2 airBNB’s in Spain and 1 hotel. Apart from that we enjoyed the hospitality of our friends, family & housesitting houses 8 times.
On the road we didn’t drink that much alcohol. The occasional bottle of wine and maybe some special beers. We did find cheap gin on most places, so we emptied about 5 bottles with the two of us! A new addiction was born in Spain when we tried Fanta Lemon. We normally don’t drink Fanta, so trying this and loving it came as a surprise. Also I’m hooked to peanut butter. We found some delicious ones from a Danish brand in the bio shops.
Michèle is a real game fanatic! She loves almost every game. The three we played the most on the road were Rummikub, Yathzee & Skibbo. We kept track of every game and calculated who won after those 6 months. Michèle is master of Rummikub, but I am the master of Yathzee & Skibbo! Ofcourse she did win a lot of times with the other games we brought, but we didn’t keep track of those.
In those 8 countries we refueled 16 times. The cheapest one was definitely in Andorra! We also did a lot of groceries! Sometimes we found a Lidl, or more preferably a bio shop! We only attended 6 local markets. If we had planned a little better, it would have been a bigger number.
Some random numbers that we just liked! We will make sure we keep track of even more things during one of our next trips! If you have any cool idea’s let us know!
