TPAC Cost (11th November 2008)
Looks like the trip cost me getting on for £600 overall. Well worth spending an hour on the Excel expense sheet Mozilla sent me, with half a dozen receipts scanned and attached.
- Breakfast was €7 per morning at my hotel.
- Lunch was a free buffet at the venue.
- Dinners were between €15 and €20 as I rarely had a dessert.
On the TGV I had a surprisingly tasty and filling lunch. A long baguette with cheese, ham and lettuce followed by a small but very chocolatey dessert and washed down with hot chocolate. This came to under €10 but I had it both ways, so that’s €20 all told.
Not really worth claiming, I thought. But that’s around £15 which is twice what I make per hour as Calthorpe Park School’s part-time webmaster. Scanning in the receipt and making a sensibly sized PNG out of it was a cinch. Well, it certainly took less than 2 hours!
