aww.. family..
    #11283474 - 10/20/09 01:18 PM (8 years, 7 months ago)

i just got a facebook message from an aunt of mine saying that a few years ago she and my grandparents put a little bit of money in stocks in the hopes of helping me with my education loans.  unfortunately, it didn't pan out like they had hoped, but she said that there's $1100 that i can cash out and use for my current travels, if i so desire. 

that may not seem like much to some of you, but my family is not very well off.  and considering i've only got about $6500 saved up to last me a full year of traveling, that $1100 is looking awfully significant.  i kinda feel really bad about accepting a gift that large though and i'm not sure what to say.

regardless, it was definitely an "awww..." moment.  makes me feel like i should be a better grandson and nephew.

A good family is unparalleled, man. You should take the money. If your family's anything like mine, I know it will make them happy to know that you're having a good time traveling the world.

I read a little while ago how this guy traveled something like 12,000 miles with only a couple dollars and his bicycle.  Just be creative, you can make it work with money to spare.

oh the money has never worried me (except when i'm spending it).  i am well aware of the limits my budget sets, and i'm fairly confident i will be able to make my stay last a full year.  i plan to couchsurf and camp and hitchhike and eat cheap canned food.  i'm also WWOOFing now and perhaps next summer at the end of my stay to keep the cost of living down. 

even still, this is a huge sum of money to me and, assuming i can maintain a low-cost traveling lifestyle, it can take me that much further.  i need to spend some time writing a well-composed thank you email.  and i really should email my grandparents as well.  it's pretty terrible that i've been here for over 2 months and still haven't sent them an email (hence the terrible grandson comment).
