So, I´m back in Barcelona staying at a different hostel this time. Last night I stayed at Graffiti Hostel again but it was out of the way and had loud music until 5am because it was a shared dorm style housing. Now I have a room of my own with my own shower in the central part of Barcelona for only about $10 euro more. This way I save money on transportation to the airport tomorrow as well.
I also met a 29 year old man last night at the hostel. He had the bed next to mine and we ended talking about life and what we´re doing with our own at the moment. His name was Jason and about two weeks ago he sold his car, his house and most of his belongings so he could travel for six months. He is from London and is doing a Euro trip right now. He said he was doing it to find himself. Its an interesting concept that I dont know if I necessarily agree with...
Here is where I muse for a bit so feel free to stop reading if you dont want to read some of my thoughts or ramblings on travel:
Okay. So after all the traveling I´ve done in different countries and different states.
If anything, when I travel it makes love and appreciate home so much more but at the same time makes me love and appreciate traveling EVEN more...maybe because it makes me love home all the more? Ack...who knows. Anyway, Dr. Venuti gave me the quote ¨the more you learn, the less you know¨ back in high shcool. I sort of apply that to traveling now with ¨the more i travel, the less i´ve known/seen.¨
I´m done rambling for today. I blame it on the lack of sleep and early morning airport trauma. Keep your fingers crossed and lets hope my flight tomorrow morning leaves for Amsterdam!!!
