From Riches to Rags
Suzie and I are now on our own. We went from staying in nice hotels with pools to hostels that look like you can rent a bed for an hour and have no separation between the shower and the toilet. It finally feels like we’re traveling: waiting at bus stops, eating street food, and watching our daily budget. Traveling in SEA is pretty cheap. We’re trying to spend $20 a day. Back in San Luis Obispo, I was spending about $23/day solely on rent and groceries. So this travel thing isn’t too too bad ; )
It’s crazy how fast time goes by. It feels like just yesterday we were all in Colorado planning our trip. Our family vacation came and went and it is a reminder to live in the moment. Yes, it is good to plan ahead and reflect on the past, but it’s important to take in everything right now. Make new memories, do what you enjoy, and, most importantly, always look on the bright side and make the best out of the situation.
