Ten days have passed since I finished my longest to date European tour and as always, being outside of Russia was a delight.
As previously mentioned in the post on my travel expenses for a 10-day trip in 4 European countries, I split my expenses into the following categories:
accommodation – this includes the rent that I had for my room in Berlin plus expenses for Couchsurfing (zero), the best travel experience in the world
food – all things grocery
entertainment – umbrella term for a lot of things and could include: movie tickets, coffee&cake or alcohol at cafés and bars, entrance fees, any street food I might leave on – basically any purchase that in a perfect cost-saving world I could do without
transport 1 – airport buses, intercity buses, intercity railway tickets and any single- or multi-trip tickets in any of the destinations I’ve been to (transportation prices in Europe are just too unfair!)
transport 2 – monthly tickets in Berlin
airfare – flight tickets
IT – USB Wireless, SIM-card, emergency laptop adapter…
clothes – it used to be the major spending category, however in the recent months I have found myself to start thinking material possessions like clothing are exuberant and not as important as my travel experiences (although it doesn’t mean I wear shabby clothes, I just don’t shop for the sake of shopping)
other – anything that couldn’t fit into the above category, might include things like shampoo, toothpaste, books, presents, etc.
And without further ado, here’s how much was spent on this 85-day trip (in EUR):
