Hence, there is really no limit to how much you can spend. However, the vlogger does mention some tricks to save some buck. For instance, he recommends shipping the car from India to Dubai instead of Iran. That would reduce cost and hassle drastically. Then, one could stay in hostels instead of hotels. The SIM cards which he purchased were expensive as he needed a lot of internet data to upload vlogs. Most people don’t need it.
