D64. Nov3. Blog update & record

No daily news today.
But don’t leave immediately, and don’t cry please!
I’ve totally reshaped the “pages” (in opposition to daily “posts”).

The “About me” is now called “Me, a globe-trotter”, focussing on my previous trips.
On the right column of the blog, you have a real “about me” section, about my job and competencies.

The “Road” Page in now called “planed itinerary and local roadmaps”.
I have added to the primary plan one map per country I have visited or will cross in the next months.

And the “Preparation” page remains “preparation. Though, I’ve added much more information, questions & answers, infographics, about it, divided into four sections.

Already a lot to go through.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a Delhi daily (haha) news.
And please, share your thoughts and comments about those brand new pages !
Ciao.

Oh, one more thing: Yesterday was a great day, as MyScenicRailaway, after two months of activity, exceeded 5000 views !!!

Dear friends and followers, you’ve been reading me for two months and I’d like to make sure you will not get bored with my stories at some point! To be sure we’ll reach a happy end in nine months from now, I’d like to know what you think about My Scenic Railway. Of course, those questions shouldn’t be a limitation, so do not hesitate to send me further ideas on ho to make it better every day !
Thanks a bunch!

October’ budget

Budget Shanghai

Difficult to get a real idea of traveling costs in Shanghai with these figures. The Burger icon doesn’t only include food by entrance tickets, stamps, postcards, that kind of things. Our food budget was quite big because we mainly ate at Starbucks Coffees to access wifi, which was critical for us to change our plans.

Budget South Korea

Unlike what we could expect, South Korea is not an expensive country, and, in that respect differs very much from Japan. Public transportation connecting cities is both numerous and cheap, which makes car rental unnecessary, unless you want to explore holes in a very limited time. Here as well, the Burger icon includes food, metro, presents.

Budget Taiwan

 

One week for 300 euros is really nothing for a country as developed as Taiwan. I slept in Taipei in a creepy hostel as I needed to offset a bit the big flights budget of October I hadn’t plan ahead. But anyway, street food is super safe and cheap, and public transportation doesn’t cost anything. For instance, my train ticket from Taipe to the West Coast cost 1.25 euros, the train ticket to the East coast was 2 euros.
