Her feelings are echoed by Tamsin Bowers, 36, who runs an independent support group IVF Support Services in Essex. Tamsin and husband Andrew, 43, a sign maker, were so terrified of the costs in Britain that they travelled to Sweden for IVF, which led to the arrival of twins Isabella and Francesca, eight, and daughter Azaria, five. Ironically, they then had a surprise natural arrival — little Ellphia, now two. ‘I looked at clinics in Britain, but we didn’t know how expensive it was going to get — we remortgaged our home to pay for IVF.’
I got excited about the statistics as this gives some benchmarks while planning a trip. What for me devalued it is knowing that at least one adventurer in this list has good sponsorship agreements behind him. 6 k median might be an benchmark but is does not take into account circumstances where you don’t have sponsors nor international network of friends who support with couch surfing if needed as well regular passive income. Especially the latter is the key moment… I feel this overview needs a disclaimer for all the young adventurers to develop an understanding that there more behind the curtain than trip budget numbers that help you excel in dreams. Still great overview!
