We  have had a preparation time of two years, which gives us enough time to save money without any impact on our normal life.  

Because the equipment taken on such a trip is quite personal, these costs are not processed in the following sheet. The equipment we need for this long trip, are also necessary for our yearly holidays. So many things are already in our possession, the rest will be bought during the two years of preparation.

Our plan is to certainly go for one year on the road. But maybe we will extend this year with another half year. This will be decided during the trip. Which implies that our money-box has to be filled for at least 1.5 year.
