This article by Karol Gajda at Ridiculously Extraordinary hits on something I’ve been experiencing during my current travels. While it’s euphorically liberating having the freedom to travel and visit friends, it’s stressful! This is one of the first things I think of when people express envy at my situation. It takes a lot of work to line up places to stay and transportation. For many bloggers I read with more radically free lifestyles, they make a respectable income through the internet while traveling, and can thus rent apartments and not feel bad about buying expensive bus tickets. I’ve thought about trying to make some sort of living online, but I also like the freedom to not worry about maintaining my income while I’m traveling. My current situation is good for now, and that stress which is brought by constantly traveling is definitely outweighed by the liberation.
