Dude Travels Around World and Makes Visuals of His Expenses 

Over eighteen months’ hiking and traveling around the world, I recorded every meal purchase, every tip, every ticket, every expense.

So the title was kind of hard to think of. I understand it doesn't sound super exciting. But trust me, IT IS.

What's better than graphs that detail the breakdown of this guy's daily expenses split by country?? With colour breakdowns??? And he even mirrors it to the countries' Consumer Price Index so we can have a look at whether it matches. What's better than that????


Ok so I'm a bit of a data geek. I don't know why, I just love me some beautifully displayed data. I think you can gain so much from it. It's like raw information that you process yourself and make your own thoughts based on. And different people can read data differently and conclude different things.

So this post is actually as a reminder to myself that I should totally do this when I go travelling. And then produce me some gosh dang dingity beautiful graphs.

A look into some of his:
