Now this is the way to become the ultimate fat consumer. Delivery by drone. What could be better? FedEx is starting to sweat.
Yet some people continue to try. What is that old saying? “If you love someone set them free and if they return it was met to be.”
International text message stalker that got burnt in love, now on a mission to send an instant message love remark to the ex-lover in some faraway country.
See I am a witness to some guy in Holland that is obsessed or tired of masturbating and continuously sends his ex-lover messages of love. More of xxx and ooo type behavior. Currently she is breast feeding her baby and I think, “ the guy is stuck on a treadmill.” Life has moved on. The world continues to spin.
Typical monkey man behavior. He is beating on his chest and jumping up and down. Yet the sound is only a beep on the cell phone of my friend. An electronic beep. Beep. Beep. Beep.
Oceans can divide love. Distance. Yet I understand it can feel like yesterday.
Personally I roll on down the road and find some new ass or love.
I met two travelers that travel the world without ever buying a plane ticket. They work for a major airline. Plus they get passes for their family and friends to also fly free.
The only quirk is they have to fly standby. So they are always not exactly sure of the time or day they can fly. But I did not shed a tear for them, because the places they have flown to is staggering.
Now they had a cool system where they traveled ultra light and never checked any luggage. They each had one bag that they carried on the plane with them.
Just imagine what you could do with all that extra money you saved on plane tickets. Finer hotels, dining and just extra cash for exploring.
If you are thinking about a career with extra benefits, you might consider exploring the airline companies.
What I’m about to tell you is a lie. A lie that took place in Bolivia, South America. I opened my eyes to see my friends girlfriend snorting a gram of coke off the dirty floor of a cheap hostel in Che country. She had her right nostril planted in a massive pile of white stuff and making weird snorting sounds. I thought, “it always looks easier in the movies.” But she seemed dedicated to cleaning the floor.
I don’t mind traveling with people that snort coke, because they get you to a destination in a dianoetic manner. But anyways I had enough of this bullshit. So I throw my stuff in my backpack and walked out the hostel door at 4am in the morning. I started walking toward Sucre. My friend (which we will call Mr Anonymous) stood in the door of the hostel naked and yelled, “I love you.” I yelled back that I loved him too. The hostel dogs started to bark as I walked into the cool morning night. Sometimes as a traveler you just have to walk away and spend time alone. This was one of those moment. Perhaps it’s sometimes best not to share a room and save money.
Everyone has a dream and if you don’t, then get the hell out of the way. A marriage is a two way street. If it’s only your way, then you will be hitting the highway.
Now I think this is a problem for macho men (type A alpha male.) The men that still feel that they need to make more money than the wife, even if it means eating beans and rice. Lots of men still like the women in the home being the traditional type wife. Now this is OK if the wife likes that role. Now I do think it is healthy for children to have a stay at home mom/dad up to a certain age. Daycare can’t replace a good mom or dad.
Someone said to me, “they will think you are a fool.” The person was scared of what people might be thinking of me. Trying to protect me. That made me happy that people might consider me a fool. Are you fearful of being labeled a fool?
We all have our own rhythm to find in life. Our pace. Our particular walk or path to forge.
Could it be a great sign when they hiss at you and label you a fool… You have arrived. You are free from the shackles. Learning to think for yourself.
The National University of San Marcos was charted on May 12, 1551. Yesterday I attended a conference on using new technology in tourism at the National University of San Marcos. Very beautiful was my first thought on passing through the enormous castle like doors. The old timber “dark varnished” roof joists and elaborate gardens were the two items that had me gazing around and dreaming. “What if I had a home like this,” I thought to myself.
It was about 6:00 in the evening in Central, Lima and the sun was disappearing fast. Plus the conference was getting ready to start. So I snapped a few pictures and made my way into the beautiful conference room and found myself a seat.
I will let you in on my secret for easily finding love while traveling. You need to ask someone out for a date. That simple. A date can consist of just going for a walk. Then you need to make the move and kiss that person. If the kiss exchange happens then you are on the right path to love or misery.
Understandably it can very difficult to get the courage to ask someone out on a date. Especially when you are in the loneliness rut. That rut can be deep and often it is a depression like state of mind. You must rise up to a new day and purposely search for someone that you are interested in.
The easiest way to unplug a sink while traveling is find a toilet plunger and do it yourself. Make sure there is water covering the plunger and plunge away. This works every time for me. Most hotel/hostels have several plungers lying around.
Staying in a $2.50 hostel in Guatemala once, the owner came into my room with a toilet plunger and unplugged my sink. I thought, “wow” and vowed to write about it one day. That day is now.
Have a good day.
Here is a true story for you. I know this lady (Colombian) that is married to some guy in Holland and she has not seen him for 3 years. Why? Because she left him. Funny thing is this guy sends her “love” text messages about every week. Proclaiming his love. They have not seen each other for 3 years. We clear on that.
She is in love with someone else. Called moving on.
I’ve seen a picture of the Hollander and he is a very handsome man. Blond hair and big feet. I would imagine he has a big penis too.
The president of the USA issued an executive order for all citizens to download a pdf copy of a 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollar bill. You are now required to print your own money. Any citizen who fails to print enough money for survival will be fined or sent to prison. Pity the fool with no printer or ink.
Hardcore drug addiction is easy in the land of cheap cocaine. By easy I mean “easy to get hooked.” I’ve seen a few homeless gringos living on the dirty streets of Lima, Peru South America. The best is they overdose and game over. The worst is a life of theft, prison and misery.
Usually they are young traveling kids that come from good upper middle class income families. They experiment with cocaine and then “BAM” they got themselves a serious habit. The money keeps flowing from mommy and daddy for awhile. But the burn rate of the travel funds arouses suspicion and the truth is revealed. Young Johnny or Susie is a cocaine junkie. Ride them cowboy.
I’m starting to learn many people are afraid to travel. Fear of the unknown in a foreign country. It is normal to be afraid when traveling to a foreign place. Hell it can be scary just visiting a different place in your home country.
But this I guarantee. If you load up your pack and go explore a different country it will change your life forever. Now I’m not talking about a vacation or a cruise ship package deal for one or two weeks.
Someone once said to me that there are a lot of gays in Peru, because the chickens are injected with loads of hormones. What got me thinking about this statement was while riding the electrical train I was standing next to 4 gay guys. They were kinda loud, hugging and playful. Nothing bad. But they seemed to be flaunting (like a peacock) their gayness. I have no problem with gays and have gay friends. But I was definitely looking at them and thinking about chicken.
You can live a semi-retired lifestyle within 2 years if you create a small business. It’s easier and cheaper to live in the developing worlds. Central and South America is a good place to create a semi-retirement lifestyle.
By semi-retired I’m referring to working 4 days a week. Your hours will average between 4 and 6 hours per day. Now sometimes you have to hustle when the money is coming in and other times when the money is slow you get to kick-back more.
My girlfriend is traveling tomorrow with a guy on an overnight trip and staying in the same hotel room. Will she stay loyal or have a sexual encounter?
Am I worried? No. Why? Because it does not matter.
But I did have a tinge of jealousy. Because I know this man will attempt to have sex with her. He cannot be trusted. He is human like me.
Head to the hills of Antioquia, Peru to escape the rat race of Lima. Someone came into the town and painted it white. Pretty pictures on houses and Bronco Billy running wild through the streets. Watch out for Bronco Billy if you decide to take a dip in the meandering creek running below the town. When you let down your guard for one second a Golden Retriever (Bronco Billy) will jump in the water and try to give you lots of kisses as you fight to hold your head above water.
The Peruvian pepper tree (Shinus Molle) can be used as a natural mosquito repellent. Hiking in the town of Antioquia, Peru I noticed a person rubbing it on their skin. Antioquia is on the route into the Peruvian Andes.
Leaves of the Peruvian pepper tree smell like citronella. The tiny round red fruit when crushed smells like black pepper and sometimes is sold in the markets as pink pepper.
How to deal with mom and pop stores that overcharge you because you are a foreigner. I don’t run into this problem a lot, but it happens. Recently I moved to a new home and started purchasing some pastries from a local tienda. Well I found out that the lady was overcharging me by 50 centavos, which is nothing. The normal price is 2.50 and I was being charged 3.00 Nuevos Soles. Her cakes are homemade and I figured she was just charging more because of the quality difference. I had no problem with paying a little more. But I’m not paying a higher price than everyone else, because I’m the billionaire gringo.
Organic farming has become an elitist label afforded by big corporate farms. The small family farmers can’t afford to sell their produce using the organic label due to the high cost. Certification fees vary from 400 to 2000 dollars a year. Here is a list of requirements that a small farm would have to meet to become organically certified.
“To certify a farm, the farmer is typically required to engage in a number of new activities, in addition to normal farming operations:
