How much does comfort cost?

7/29/2007
I woke up this morning with a little bit of a sore throat and weak body. I imagine being out in the cold rain until 2:30am would do that to a person. I’ve been drinking lots of hot ginger tea and staying inside. It felt very good to get home today and be in a warm house where I could take a hot shower. I booked my first hostel in Barcelona this evening on the internet. I admit that I’m a little bit frightened to experience staying in a hostel – I’ll be sharing a room with 10 other people… But I’m up for the challenge, I am getting more excited about it as I think about it. In a way, my trip is officially starting when I go to Barcelona because I’ll really have to figure things out for myself. Money definitely buys you comfort when you’re traveling. Sometimes I have to make the decision of “should I pay the extra money to just be comfortable?”… It’s a difficult decision sometimes. It definitely makes me appreciate my home life and how simple life is when you create a home for yourself.

Smeers, Sore Throats, Late Nights, Dancing, Drinking??? Sounds like a party to me. Didn't I tell you not to stay out late? I must have missed that talk. Are you feeling better? You must be on the train to Barcelona by now. Have fun my brave one. Kisses and squishy Hugs, Mom

I stayed in multi person hostel's in New Zealand. Funny folks kept to themselves there as well. I a few hostels for only a few $$ extra; I could get a private room and that was nice.

Good trippin Jess, I've heard Barcelona is a wonderful place from a friend that toured there.

Take care, we're loven ya...

Hey paaardner! Sounds like you're having fun. If you're gettin' sick remember to drink plenty of Fuze (just not the flavor that makes you jittery). - kev
