Kombis... Ever time I see one, I kick myself for not having bought one when I got here and travelled around the country for a year in it. It just so happens that you can't walk a block here in Brazil without spotting one, so I've been doing plenty of kicking.
I vow right now that in the next country, on the next mission, my first order of business will be to purchase a vehicle to get around in. Whether it's a tuk-tuk, van, trike, or whatever strange vehicle is particular to the location, I'll make that my first task... Getting around has been a bit of a hindrance to productivity, ability to explore and investigate projects and problems to write about. PLUS, what a cool place to sleep anywhere #VanLife
Ahhhhh well, we live and we learn. -
SPEAKING OF NEXT MISSIONS!
You're still welcome to tell me where to live next and what to do there:
Moving into a van to travel full time is a rare opportunity, but also a pretty harsh adjustment. Over the last two months I've had to remind myself it's possible to have fun and feel grateful for this lifestyle while also feeling overwhelmed and sad at times - for losing the stability, routine and constant community that comes with being in one place. I wasn't necessarily ready for all these changes but I'm not putting pressure on myself to have it all figured out. I may never truly settle in, and that's ok! 😊
