Traveling is incredible. Seeing new places prompts a multitude of thoughts in the brain. We recognize how fortunate we are for where we live. We recognize how fortunate we are for being in whichever particular place we traveled to. Yet, traveling cost money and time and so we are almost always met with a catch-22. In order to travel, we must have money. We must work to acquire money. Working takes time and thus we are bound to find a lot less time to travel and even while working long hours not as much money as we expected.
I’m going to suggest that there is a form of traveling that elicits all of the electric revelation we find at the Hustler’s Club in Las Vegas that is entirely free. Yeah, free.
There is an area outside of your house, in the center of town, that you have never seen. There is a state park that cost maximally a couple dollars to park that even if you’ve been down the trail a hundred times, you haven’t been down it today. It’s amazing how different a trail can be from day to day.
So, there we are, you can travel on a budget by not going to places that cost money. It’s a foreign concept today but it’s a revelation. Take a hike!
