Food & Place to Sleep
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 !
