March 2014 Report

March 2014 Report

March was a good mix of work and travel, for us both, alone and together.

What did we do?

I finished up a teaching contract in Austria and travelled up to Berlin where Zab met me from London. We attended ITB and met up with several awesome wicked cool bloggers we’ve been following for a while, then spent a further week scoping out areas of Berlin we’d maybe like to live in.

In mid March, we separated again as Zab flew to Stockholm to visit some friends for a long weekend, and I travelled to Nuremberg to do the same. I then returned to Austria and started teaching again while Zab went back to London to renovate the kitchen in his house in order to sell it and work on his other projects.

What did we spend?

  • Total spent for two people in March (31 days): £1363.66
  • Average per person per day: £22

Transport includes several flights (London-Berlin for Zab, Salzburg-Berlin for me, Berlin-Stockholm for Zab and Stockholm-London again for Zab), some longer distance overland journeys (Berlin-Nuremberg by bus for me and Nuremberg-Linz also for me) as well as train journeys within Austria for my work and some London public transport for Zab.

Accommodation was entirely our twelve nights in Berlin, where we rented an large studio apartment in Schöneberg. Apart from that we didn’t pay for accommodation as we were staying with friends, at home in London (in Zab’s case) or in hotels in Austria paid for by work (in my case).
