The financial plan

As the preparation goes on and our schedule seems to pay off, a short budget is posted so as to make things more clear regarding our planning, all the expenses done so far and how things work in case of anyone interested. Quite a few overlanders did the same job and drew the financial picture of such a project. The table will get its final shape at the time of our departure. 

On the other hand, our income is standard and our efforts to get some sort of partnership with any media that would be interested of our stories and pictures have not finished yet. As already known, we have excluded any type of sponsoring or supporting as it is the trip of our lives.

Please see below our budget.
