£20,000 Later – How far has it gotten us?

This post is a little over due because we hit the £20,000 spend a few weeks ago after leaving Singapore. I also believe this post will be quite controversial as a ‘proper traveller’ could quite easily make the £20,000 go a lot further.

My top 15 WOW moments

Whilst in China on a cruise of Guilin’s beautiful Li River, Nick and I spent a lot of time on the top deck chatting to a guy from New Zealand named Ian.
