This is one of the most common questions I have been encountering recently.
A while ago, I started driving a good car, my husband and I were about to buy a house, we were even talking about having another child, we have two pets at home,... life is good, one would say.
Television ads, jumbo posters,... they all bombard us with things that are supposed to make us happier. The image of a happy average family is therefore a good car, a house, 2-3 holidays a year, maybe a weekend by the sea, a picnic with friends, 1-3 children, a pet and life is one big happiness. We all fall into this trap very quickly, I admit.
Until one friend dies, another friend, a third family member,... and nobody takes anything with them. They only leave behind material, broken hearts and emptiness. Is this sense? Is this happiness?
That's why my answer is very simple: " Travel is not a matter of money, but a matter of courage! "
I have met travelers who went on a trip with just 100 EUR. And I have met people who have millions in their account and believe they don't have enough to go around the world. Where is the truth then?
I will be able to calculate how much we will actually spend when we return from the trip.
