Costs updated

I realize I forgot two important parts on our sailing budget that I showed you the other day.

Fuel: €75/month - We're cruising around the world with a sailboat and we hate the sound of the engine running so we try to keep the fuel cost at the minimum. We rarely spend more than this per month.

Laundry: €40/month - As we definitely have no space on the boat for a washing machine, and because we are extremely lazy and bored with hand washing, we leave our clothes for cleaning as soon as we get the chance in a harbor or town. We're washing maybe 4 machines per month and generally it costs €10 per machine and at least here in the Caribbean, you get your clothes back clean, dry and nicely folded for this price.
