The Cost of a Year Abroad

We are back from our trip abroad and I have a lot of writing to do! In total, we visited 30 countries. I thought I would hit this topic of price first since the numbers are all in. How much did a year of no work and all play cost? I’ll break it down here.


When we first planned this sabbatical, Switzerland was one of the countries we were most excited to visit.

Our car

We designed this trip with a car in mind. What we didn’t know is that we would get so lucky with this one.

Packing for a year

Putting your whole life into a few suitcases is odd. Especially when you try to plan for almost all seasons. Then on top of that, climbing requires a whole bag full of metal… Well, we made it all fit, but it’s definitely not light.
