Traveling the world is comparable to schooling, as you’re likely to learn countless lessons – however, the somewhat unfortunate part is that you will learn these lessons the hard way, and sometimes the hard way can cost you greatly. When you travel alone to a far away land, where you know no one and you speak no like-language, you’re left with only yourself – all preconceived judgements and stereotypes become washed away, because you’re vulnerable and you begin to see and have experiences that help you learn better.
Almost 7 months, 206 days, 4,936 hours or 296,160 seconds ago, I was robbed in Puerto Rico. My rental car was broke into and my bags were stolen while I was hiking to the La Mina waterfall in the El Yunque rainforest on the island of Puerto Rico. It’s taken that long for me to work through the complications, create a digital nomad career for myself, and FINALLY get back out there to do what I love – traveling and experiencing the world, and meeting new people. I’ve done all of this without the help of my ‘trusted’ insurance company – who (if you’ve kept up with my blog, know already) has been fighting me, and trying not to pay upon their promise of coverage. So, if you pray, please pray that the situation will be resolved shortly (thank you) – I’ve gone above and beyond, and have done all they have asked of me.
A few days ago, I decided to purchase my plane tickets, in a matter of minutes after realizing that I can afford to safely get back out there. It’s amazing what a little know-how and research can do – I took what was a $1300 airfare ticket down to $560. “Travel hacking” really is the right name for it, because as long as you know what to do and what to look for, then you’re all set. Finding the best price on airfare is something I work with people all the time on. With being able to fly over to Spain cheaply, I decided that there’s no better time than the present. On April 16th, I’ll be flying into London and after a 36 hour layover, I’ll be arriving in Barcelona!
