I don’t travel Internationally nearly as much as I’d like. I tell myself I can’t afford it – but that’s not the truth. The truth is – I am gainfully employed and prioritize my funds according to my values, just as every other gainfully employed person does. I enjoy travel, but it also drains me quite a bit. So much getting there, then getting back. What environment will I come back to? The Spartan life is not for me – I need beauty and whimsy e’reday.
Ultimately – I am in love with creating a dynamic environment within my home. This is my world, and it is ever changing – just as I am. Design, photography, cocktail creation, and experimentation are things I value – and my bank account proves that. Damn, my hobbies are expensive af.
I say all of this because while my travel game needs a lot of work – I can still experience parts unknown through drink. I can connect with people from Scandinavia by drinking something they drink – Aquavit. I can connect with people in Scotland – their land is in the Scotch. I can connect with those in Haiti by drinking the rum they painstakingly produce. Ok, enough of my musings, for now…
