If you’re planning a trip around Europe, you most likely want to soak in as much of the culture as possible. The Cargo Freighter Straat Clements would not wait for us, and we were still over 1.100 Km’s away. Just outside Leonora we came across a town that looked like it had been hit by an Atomic Bomb. It was called Malcolm. Bits of huge machinery and house brick all over the place. A few of the more solid brick homes were still standing and we choose the best one to camp in for the night. Malcolm was going to be Australia’s largest gold mining town, and they even built a huge dam for its water supply, but the whole place closed down in 1940s. Today you find nothing there. All the bricks have been removed by locals to build new sheds or garages etc. Nothing to find on Google Maps either, only the old Malcolm Station. You can read more about Malcolm in my book, and see rare footage of a ghost town. Our next stop was Leonora. A rail link from Kalgoorlie opened in June 1902 and still operates today. Leonora became the largest center on the North Eastern Goldfields and by 1908 boasted 7 hotels, general stores, chemists, tailors and bakeries.

Beautiful, long, narrow and spanning over 13 kilometres, Meliá Cayo Santa María’s beach is made up of fine, near white, cool to the touch, soft sand. Palm frond palapas line the beach like stalwart soldiers guarding the clear, turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Fairly deep after a few feet in, the ocean was calm and crystal clear on warm, sunny days and rough with high waves on breezier, cooler days.

The truth is that working and paying bills is a must for adult life. Some people get into this horrible hamster wheel of go to college, get into debt, obtain $20,000 in credit card debt and $60,000 in student loan debt, get an entry level job that pays minimum wage, pay bills, take out second job to help pay bills, and do all of this until finally you end up on top by the time you’re ready to retire and you were a slave to a company working a job you hated and never had time for fun and adventure. Sounds awful, right? It sure does to me. Every evening, and sometimes in the afternoon, there are different musicians playing for the crowd. For about two hours, despite the dim roar of people having a good time, a wonderful bistro ambiance permeates the air as these artistes take center stage to perform international and local tributes. With your favourite drink clasped in one hand, a lit cigar cocked comfortably between two fingers, and a warm, tropical breeze fluttering over your skin, you’ll find yourself totally relaxed and magically transported to dreamscape.

Upon returning home, I reflected on my recent trip to Phoenix, Arizona. I was having mixed emotions about how I felt it had gone. That’s when I realized that I had actually experienced two trips at the same time. One was very nice, and a positive experience. The other one sucked. Allow me to share my reflections, and you can decide for yourself how my trip went. The reason for my visit was actually a funeral. That part sucked. But being with family was a super positive experience. And I felt blessed that I was able to afford the trip, and take the time to pay my last respects. This aspect of the trip was neither bad nor good. It was just part of the journey of life. Very interesting advice you give an certainly an interesting read. It’s always amazing how much unnecessary baggage people carry along with them when traveling just because they aint sure what there are going to need.

Apart from the historical and natural sights, travelling makes it possible to meet people from different cultures, learn about their culture, customs, traditions and food habits, their modes of dressing up, their language and so many other details. Wonderful travel hub, Comfort! A great adventure and a place worth visiting. That does not have to be the case, however. The key to affordable travel insurance adventure travel is to book directly from the providers of the adventure, instead of going through multiple layers of travel agents, tour operators and tour guides. Traveling is truly an education. We are in total agreement regarding that. I loved that Anthony Bourdain quote and still watch reruns of his televised travel shows. The circumstances of his death make me sad to this day.
