With my backpacking adventure less than 40 days away, you'd think the money earned from the sale of my worldly possessions would go straight toward my savings account, however I'm a bit tired of saving all the time.
Here's where the money is going…
1. DC United soccer games (including lots of hot dogs and beer) – I caught the last 2 regular season games, and have plans to attend the first home playoff game, and the MLS Cup, and hopefully the Eastern Conference Championship as well. It's not just to support the home team, it's a great way to bond with my friends before leaving.
2. Massage – Oh…my aching knees! Just kidding. The massages are a luxury – and yes, they'll be cheaper on the road. Still, I did do a little networking, and if I head to Paraguay, I've got a local connection!
3. Paper Plates – I'm about to freecycle my dishes.
