Travel Stats



On our umpteenth bus ride I decided to (Try to) work out exactly how many hours we were spending on travel. One thing lead to another and I’ve since calculated hours, miles/km, etc of my whole trip beginning in Oman! It may seem a bit chaotic and the numbers are a bit much but I wanted to show how I came to my exact figures. Math is not my strongest point so it took a lot for me to keep at this! Hope someone out there finds this interesting!
