September 2010: 17 Days Until the Big Trip
I’ve handed over the keys and I’m now without home. I had a moments panic – what the hell now. No job, no home…so I did what I always do in moments of uncertainty. I headed to the pub.
No, not for booze, it was only 10:30am which is too early even for me, but a coffee, sausage sandwich (still labouring under the misapprehension I need to put on weight), free wi-fi and some excellent travel advice from the guy behind the bar.
I’m rapidly coming to realise that most people have a travel story and are more than happy to share. I now have the name of a fantastic sounding eco-lodge in the Bolivian Amazon and some good tips for getting out of La Paz in the event of riot 🙂
I think I’m going to adjust to this work free, home free, ties-free lifestyle.
