I would hands down say that the worst part about planning and saving for a trip is the actual saving part.
When your an active advocate of wanderlust and full time patient of the travel bug, working hard and saving harder is often the biggest struggle.
Everyone knows that trips cost money, and our round the world jaunt is squeezing every last penny we earn…but I would not have it any other way.
So I have gone from working in the beautiful French Alps for 2 years – skiing, hiking, and, doing my own take on working hard…to working 10 hours a day, 5 days a week, behind a desk. This, for me, has been the hardest part.
Knowing I need the job to save, but wanting to throw my computer out the window and heading straight to the airport is a daily dream of mine. I am not made to sit behind a desk and take abuse from shitty customers all day, when all I want to do it start my adventure.
I must keep remembering… this is the means to an exciting and unknown end (and by end, I mean the start of the best time of my life) for me. The job is merely a waiting room, for the adventure ahead, and for that reason I need to just suck it up and get on with it.
Any tips for cracking on with the job at hand would be much appreciated
