Tattybackpacks Travel Stats

We now find ourselves at the end of the journey and are feeling reflective. Now is a time to try and summarise our experiences without subjecting you to more torturous descriptions of how fabulous everything was. So instead… skim your sockets over this lot of stats.

  • 6,800,385 – number of times ‘No’ was said to Tuk Tuk drivers
  • 15,000 – number of feet skydived by Andy 6500 – number of rupees stolen from us by an Indian con artist
  • 5,180 – number of mosquito bites sustained
  • 10,546 – number of photos taken (prepare for the slideshow)
  • 235 – number of days travelled – with 2 to get home
  • 46 – number of books read between us
  • 18 – number of pounds spent on public toilets
  • 15 – number of massages received – the best being in Cambodia
  • 11 – number of countries (including Chile and Brazil for stopovers… is that cheating?)
  • 10 – number of illnesses and injuries (not including hangovers)
  • 9.5 – kilograms of clothing discarded
  • 6 – number of waterfalls canyoned
  • 4 – number of continents crossed and litres of suncream used
  • 3 – number of tonnes of rice eaten
  • 2 – number of bedbugs encountered, times Rachel’s nose was pierced and haircuts during the trip
  • 1 – total run-ins with the law!

So that brings us to the final and most important number of all….. 1150 – the time we land back in Manchester on Sunday!

Thanks for reading the blog… hope it entertained you!

Rach and Andy
