2017 / 2018 Road Trip – Major Costs

The decision to head off on a 6 month road trip around Europe is not without issues, one of the major ones being keeping to a budget. While not detailing every Euro spent on this trip, I will track the two major expenditure factors, diesel and overnight fees. Food is obviously another significant factor but we would be spending on groceries if we had stayed at home so it is not something I am concerned about.
