Checking out the calendar, tomorrow i will officially have travelled for a month! I’m impressed with myself actually because when i decided to just fly to Eastern Europe, i had zero idea with how things will end up which is why i needed an ‘out’ just incase i needed to get back to London but looking back, it just seems so unnecessary and cowardice.
I think if anything, I’ve proven a point that you can definitely backpack for a month with just your student allowance. There are in excess of 1.5k Brunei scholarship students across Europe and i feel its such a wasted opportunity to just fly back to Brunei just because you think you don’t have enough money to travel but the funny thing is, had i not have had my money stolen, i would have actually been able to save more than £100 even after an entire month of travelling. What’s even funnier is, lots of those same people will be coming back to the UK this september rocking new phones and MacBooks. haha
A week from now i will also be celebrating two months since i became homeless and started living out of a backpack. And what have i learnt after two months?
That i have too much stuff in my backpack.
