I’m literally addicted to travel. That or I’m addicted to planning a travel. If I have a weekend doing nothing I instantly feel depressed. If I have no travel plans at all, then I’m REALLY depressed. I can’t bare the thought of doing nothing and it drives Leigh mad. We have a flat full of Ikea/second hand furniture and we have only just bought a washing machine after 1.5 years (which upset me, so many travel plans I could have done with €250) and we basically live off the same cuisine every night hahaha.
If you want to travel, you have to prioritise. If you travel a lot, it doesn’t necessarily make you rich. So many people can deny this, but I can almost guarantee I earn less than most people you know after tax/bills (I live in the most taxed country). I waste my money on one thing and one thing only. If that means I live off pasta for a month and live in socks I’ve had since I was 16 then so be it (true story). I’d also rather stick to road trips now, as my anxiety is so bad. I also sell a lot of my old shit on eBay (hello monies!) Where I live in Rotterdam we have a bench we place items we don’t want and other members of the flat pick up what they want and swap etc. That’s literally how I get most of my shit. Genius if you’re desperate to travel, then you have to give up your material goods (or food), and you won’t regret it (maybe don’t do a me and leave a few cent in your account by the end of every month). On that note I just planned another Europe roadtrip in our little KA. COME TO ME PASTA. 🏽♀️ Also... seriously, anyone want to come with?! __________________________________
