In all Modestine travelled 6337 miles and consumed 611 litres of diesel. To this should be added about 500 miles for the ferry crossings and journeys by public transport. The total cost of the four months away was about £4565, including £697 for an overhaul of Modestine before we set out. Campsites accounted for about £900, diesel about £435 and ferry crossings about £275. The remainder was made up of items such as food and wine, public transport, internet access, gifts to friends and £50 for the complete works of Bach on 155 CDs!
