BootsnAll's 30 Days of Indie Travel Art Project
Day 6 - #Indie30
Having less stuff allows you to move more freely and feel "free". More importantly, it has given me more money to invest in traveling, seeing places I have always dreamed of. That is the light at the end of the tunnel. The bigger picture that keeps you motivated until your departure.
I say if you can give up Starbucks everyday, fast fashion, frequent taxis, buying lunch and using Seamless, $20 cocktails, magazines - it gets easier and your back account gets fatter. Remember that extra cash can go a long way, especially in Southeast Asia, parts of Eastern Europe, Latin & South America, etc. i.e. places where you can take advantage of the exchange rate.
