Mudslide Friendship

Posted: 9th April 2010 by admin in Uncategorized


In January 2010, I was hiking machupicchu when we noticed the time and began making out way back to catch the train to Cuzco. When we arrived we found out that a mudslide had taken out the train tack. After spending some time at the hot springs we found hostel to stay in. Not being able to get to sleep I went outside to look at the stars. Even though every one in the group I was traveling with had bonded I still did not feel like I fit in. A random guy staying that the hostel came out for a cigarette and we talked for hours. All the places we had live, “There was this one time in (insert random country here)” It was really nice to be able to have a conversation with out worrying about people thinking you’re stuck up. I know that I am a very luck person who gets to travel all the world, but it’s more of a life choice. I would rather spend my money and get to travel than save for the future. This ends up making most of my stories sound like: “There was this one time in insert random country here.” I am at a small school in New Jersey, were most of the students have never left this town. It’s nice to know that there are people who choose to live the way I do.

    Wow isn’t it incredible the random things that life brings sometimes that just make your day? 🙂 I know what you mean about finding someone who chooses to live like that — there are a lot of people who wish they’d never been tck’s but I’d rather be physically blind than loose the insight that my upbringing has given me. When I grad and everything the first thing that I’m going to do is travel. A lot. 😀
