The struggle to save
Wallington Travel Blog› entry 1 of 1 › view all entries
As we all know, traveling, as good and as liberating as it can be requires generally a substantial amount of money to even think about booking your flights and disappearing into a bliss! Saving the money is not the hard part, waiting for that dream date of your flight departure to creep up is considerably harder, but even still, the most taxing and challenging part is the sacrifices that have to be made to obtain enough funds to begin your trip/trips. I went from a party like crazy 4/5 nights a week hardly any sleep kind of guy to, well what I can only describe as a out half a night a week if im lucky (only drinking coke mind you :P) to having possibly the longest sleeps I have ever had in my life - other than the excitable twisting and turning that comes with the constant ideas and thoughts jumping into your head about your future escapades the other side of the globe.
All the above is a bit random and weird but felt like typing something with a different angle on traveling - the journey (and for most the saving and sacrifices are) actually begins long before you set foot on foreign soil.
BUT OH MY GOD I CAN'T WAIT!!!! Now 75l backpack in black or blue?? hmm
