Anonym fragte: How do you have enough money to travel constantly?
Hmmm, le simple answer is that I don’t. :) The first two years that I traveled I didn’t have a penny to my name (save birthday, when my mammie y dad would send me $50 or something), it was all freight trains, hitch hiking and dumpster diving/white boxes/generousity of people I’d stay with. These days the lady, cats and I are traveling with a VW Dasher (it’s a diesel, so we’re hoping to do a WVO conversion at some point in the near future). We did gas jug off and on, when we crossed the country last year, but I find that incredibly tedious and time consuming and prefer not to have to subsist on the kindness of strangers. I’ve been working odd jobs over the past few months and the ladyface does contracted writing gigs that she gets paid for. That should get us through these next couple years of vehicle travel.
I’m all for saving up ones money to travel. A lot of it has to do with what level of comfortability one “requires.” However, I’d guess the number one reason most people refuse to leave their homes, jobs, lives behind is that they “don’t have enough money.” It’s simply an excuse. From the time our legs pop out the mother’s womb, they begin the journey of learning how to walk. Sadly, most of us forget how when we reach adulthood. Anyone can afford to travel if they start heading in the direction of their freedoms, passions and loves.
