…and almost nothing was set. Granted, I’ve had tons of stuff going on, but still, I felt that my level of performance regarding this trip was below average. First of all, it seemed that I was about to defend my thesis. The final draft got some positive reviews and I was a few minor improvements away from succeeding in this heavy, time consuming, yet highly rewarding task. Sadly, we were also facing bureaucratic problems regarding the loan we needed to renovate our house. It’s been quite a frustrating situation and the worst part was that it wasn’t up to us to solve it. Then there was the issue of me getting a new employment, as an opportunity knocked a few days back, but the offer wasn’t good enough to quit my current crappy job.
All in all, we managed to cope with most of these situations. Just a few days back, a date was set for me to defend my thesis and we had a great time in Southeast Asia, as we visited Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bali. We enjoyed a few hours of massage, sunbathing, swimming in exotic beaches and occasionally a few arguments with some monkeys. We also met some great people and fell in love with Bali (I also fell in love with the spicy tastes of Indonesian cuisine). My hands are a bit tied at the moment as I have to prepare my thesis’ defense, so I can’t post as often as I would like to do so. Still, as our intent is to provide info on preparing our journeys (that’s a goal we fell way sort during this year) I ll’ post the list of this year’s expenses.
Our transport expenses were:
Flight tickets from Athens to Singapore and back 733,78
Flight tickets from KL to Bali 75,68
Flight tickets from Bali to Singapore 74
Bus tickets from Singapore to KL 26,58
total 910,04 euro
Accommodation cost was:
2 days in Kl 20,77
1 day in Singapore 33,76
3 days in Ubud 21,35
4 days in Legian 58.03
total 133,91 euro
1043,95 euro total sum to which we can also add the money we spent during these days which were approximately 600 euro, of which 60 were spent on excursions and transports within Bali.
