  • Onboard the Transiberian/mongolian Train- around three weeks hoping on and off the train- in Russia, Mongolia, Siberia, China until Vietnam.

How much does this cost?

 

Our forecast and planning is a total of 16,000 euros each, for the whole year.

This includes:

  • Planes, Trains, Buses & General Transport

  • Food & Place to Sleep

  • Visas

  • Health Insurance

  • Some Small Extras: souvenirs, excursions, special trips....

 

Do we have the money? Are we worried?

 

Not all right now, some will hopefully be generated while we are travelling. Not all the time :) but we are always really excited! The main goal is to have fun and keep it going for as long as we can do it both: economically and emotionally.

 

How are we generating before and during the trip?

 

  • We've been working for 1 year double jobs (not easy all the time but totally worth it!- used www.upwork.com site for freelancing jobs).

  • Sold our car.

  • Rent the house while we are gone. Beautiful apartment in Lisbon by the way ! 

  • Freelancing- Sustainability Consulting Services, done the better together way! :)  if you want to meet up and get some work done drop us an email!

  • Use when possible Worldpackers! this will save us money and in exchange we will be able to live wonderful experiences helping out others. Check them out! www.worldpackers.com

  • Contributions received via Patreon by our Super Heros!  We will be giving a voice to those we engage with during the trip, generating sustainability changemakers check out our next post for more info on what is this about! Check us out & become a Super Hero.
