Spending summary for 2020
It wasn't the best year for digital nomads nor tourists. However, we still managed to move around a little bit and as always I tried to keep an eye on our expenses. Due to the covid outbreak and lockdowns, we were forced to stay in one country for a very long time. At least much longer than we expected.
Spending summary for 2019
I know that many people are thinking about jumping into digital nomad lifestyle and they often have a lot of questions. One of those is what is the cost of living in such and such country.

Spending summary in Jakarta
Like I mentioned in my previous post, our priority in Jakarta was a trip to Anak Krakatoa. We knew it's not a cheap thing and we were prepared for it.

Is Kuala Lumpur worth visiting?
While Thailand looked like nothing we’ve ever seen before, Kuala Lumpur felt a bit more familiar in some ways and completely different in others. It’s undeniably a huge city with skyscrapers and fancy shopping malls and cars, but you can also find a lot of shacks made of corrugated steel plates and corroded and manually patched cars.

Thailand in the eyes of a grumpy couple
We were there only a month so it's definitely not a complete list of weird and/or annoying things there. We'll surely come back there and update our thoughts about it. For now, though I have a full list of weird, annoying and funny things we found in Thailand in a month we spent there.
