"Now What, Nomad?"

"Now What, Nomad?"

I am writing from my home country where the wi-fi is so fast, I didn't think I could trust it at first to stay this way.  Every place in town has the air conditioning set for satisfying penguins and the grocery store lights are brighter than the sun. Keep in mind, I am getting better at my culture shock period when flying in from other countries. It is funny and alarming, but mostly funny. I love the US, but I do walk around in awe at the shiny new exterior of everything, consumer brainwash and overlooked as normal.. wastefulness. Do you want a plastic bag for your plastic bag? This place is extremely luxurious compared to other parts of the world I've been inhabiting. I can even drink water from the faucet.

Moving away from jokes and my way of stalling, 

I recently traveled Peru a couple months and I loved it. There is much to do beyond the following, but I like these two pictures a lot so...

Machu Picchu

Prior to flying to Peru, I had a feeling of exhaustion that kinda stayed to hangout with me throughout the vibrant and beautiful country.

You see, I’ve been living on the road for 2.5 years now and I’m tired. The simplicity and freedom that nomadism entails is honestly the greatest experience thus far in my life, but I’ve had a shift in my feelings of where I want to go next. Not physically (“Should I just fly to country number 18!?), but more in an abstract way.

My pack gets heavy.

I expected myself to backpack until I was low on money and needed to stop. I didn't consider myself getting tired before my funds did.

I have realized life on the road is not fulfilling me in the ways it used to.

I do not know what is next.

Maybe I’ll relax and paint in this booming air conditioning while I decide. Also, what is UberEats?

To be conintued...
