The final count – our trip in numbers

Back in June we blogged about some of the key statistics on our trip. At first we were quite surprised with some of the low numbers, especially the number of train trips . But  the numbers look very different now – take a look:


1. Number of days spent travelling  = 270

2. Number of different beds slept in = 93

3. Number of trains = 121

4. Number of bullet trains in Japan = 9

5. Number of buses = 98

6. Number of airplanes = 9

7. Number of times invited to stay with locals = 21

8. Number of museum/zoo/aquarium visits = 70

9. Number of paid-for tours = 15

10. Number of sick days = 0

    I really enjoyed reading those numbers!! People are always curious, so thanks. xx

    • Thanks Becky. I’m working on the total costs for the year too, so that should interest you. Initial estimates put it at no more than one year of school fees and household bills (inc. running a car, electricity, gas, phone line, council tax etc) And that’s for two of us – so I think that will amaze some people. Of course it was a totally no-frills year (no pricey cafes, no restaurants etc) so that might not appeal to everyone. But think of what we saw and did!
