CROWDFUNDING UPDATE

TARGET Sell 140 prints.
STILL TO SELL: 104

The shop is closed
On Friday the 24th I will visit the Fine art print specialist to discuss all the details and finalise the order. In the week of 27 November I will receive all the prints and prep them for shipping. I will hopefully send them out on the first of December or the week after. 

Unfortunately
I did not succeed in selling enough prints unfortunately... BUT I did sell 36 prints, whooop whoop! Thats a new record for me, even though this means I can't continue in December with chapter two of Around the world in 80 followers, it will not stop me. I am now aiming for starting chapter two at the end of January. Follow along, submit a couch to sleep on, suggest a place to visit, donate something or financially support me via Patreon. Anything is appreciated. 

Costs vs profit
The prints I sell are my way to crowd fund myself to Nepal and start chapter two there of AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 FOLLOWERS. With every print I sell, 15 euro will be paid for production of the prints and 14,95 is profit that will go directly into the jar making chapter two possible. 

Nepal
I am aiming for Nepal or India, because it s one of the cheapest countries to travel in and making me last "long" on the money I collect, while visiting a follower. The mission changed a little bit, focussing more on culture, making me less reliant on interviewing my followers (which has been proven hard to accomplish so far). 

140 prints
Selling 140 prints will result in around 2090 euro, enabling me to survive a month and a half in Nepal including a single flight ticket. Around 400 euro for a single ticket and 30euro a day to make stories for you to follow.

CROWDFUNDING with Photo prints!

My photos prints are for sale from the first chapter of Around the world in 80 followers, for a limited amount of time and a limited amount of prints! Make sure to get a print before they run out. Some photos I haven't shown before yet and are in the final selection for possible prints. 

By the end of November I will oversee all the printing myself and make sure they arrive before Christmas!

My first weird experience (Story)

During my complete trip up till now, I was once asked to move out by a host. When I arrived I did not really feel welcomed by a part of the family. I had the feeling the rest of the family was neither not up to date about my arrival or my project. The day after my arrival a lot of things were planned out for me, which was nice. However, as the first day after arrival passed by, I noticed that my host did not really take the rest of his family into account. Whom was not with us during the whole day. E.g. I asked him whether we had to be "home" at a certain time for dinner with the rest of the family and my host said: "I work, my partner takes care of everything around the house. So we can do whatever."

That evening I was politely asked by my host to move out the next morning. At that precise moment my host apparently had gotten a message from the family at home to ask for my removal of the house. I did not mind to leave the house since the tension in the house probably had gotten worse since my arrival, as I had the feeling I was not welcome from the beginning.
