Travel
I love to travel when I can, but I spent the last five years in complete poverty so I didn't get the chance. Staying positive though, I'm a bit better off now and am planning a trip to someplace I haven't been. The problem is that travel can be so expensive, and that cheap ways of doing it are only known to insiders. But I love going to new places and being overwhelmed by something I had, until then, …

Simply put, I am …
