First of all, before we get to the expenses, a comment about this Namibia trip.
What an absolutely unbelievable week they have planned for us! They've organized a 7 day "self drive" tour where they give us a 4x4 vehicle and we do our own driving to see the highlights, staying at fantastic lodges along the way and in some of the National Parks including game safaris and a scenic 1 1/2 hour flight over the "Skeleton Coast". When it's all confirmed, I'll share the details with you all! All we can say is....wow!
Okay, so June was not a bad month. Pretty much what we expected, although the "miscellaneous" column is still higher than we'd like it to be. Problem is our internet usage, but it's our only luxury so it will remain high.
We spent a total of $777 in the month of June. Here's how it all broke down...
Gasoline: $20 in the little blue car. We did do that drive one day up to Prince Albert National Park, other than that we have to take the camp truck into town because it needs to be filled up anyhow. We do groceries at the same time to kill two birds with one stone, as the saying goes.
Groceries: Seems this is starting to finally catch up on itself with all of the stocking up we did when we first got here. Spent "only" $489 on groceries for the month. Hopefully we can keep the next three months around the same or lower.
Alcohol: Nope. Not spending any money on booze up here. Alcohol in Canada is simply too expensive so we're boycotting it while we're here.
Miscellaneous: Total of $248. Which is not bad when you consider that our internet bill is $115 and our car insurance is $75.
Entertainment: We're working all the time...actually our $115 internet bill should be in this department because it's our only luxury. Anyhow, we spent $19.60 in total. A couple of ice cream cones, and our entrance fee to the National park we visited on our day off.
