Officially Homeless – What now?

September 2010: 17 Days Until the Big Trip

By: Free Photo Fun

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.

    I was reading your article on starting a blog (measuring up leaving Travellerspoint to set up own domain) and clicked hyperlink for MiFi but it took me here. Was wondering what MiFi was?

    I will soon be “without a home” and traveling cris-cross country to “find myself”… And am using your tips to setup my own blog to record my misadventures in. Thanks for all the good info!
