Travel & Money
June 13, 2009 10:43pm CST
I have seen number of people till my present age of 40 years that travel and money is co-related. But I found that when the chances of travelling come to me, I often find myself lack of money. On another side, when there is sufficient money in my hand, I do not get time to make a travel. So what do other people think of this matter? Also there are so many people who are running to make money without any interests of travelling. They only know the money, but do not know how to utilize these money by seeing some creatures of God. So my friends, try to see the nature in your lifetime as you cannot take the money to heaven but your sweet experience.

Even when I was a teenager I earned enough money to go traveling. I had a paper round and from that afforded a trip to Greece when I was 14 years old. I went there with my mum and we spent time on one of the islands as well as did some sightseeing in Athens. When I was 17 years old I went to the Netherlands with a friend. We explored Amsterdam. I had a Saturday job a shop so those wages paid for that. I really wanted to go inter railing around Europe but couldn't afford to. I went to work as a children's nany in Finland. The wages were really high and after my placement I traveled around Europe by train. I stayed in youth hostels and met many people from different countries. I got a job in a ship brokers and saved up to visit Tunisia and St Lucia. I bought a tiny cottage and planned to get work nearer my little home. However I was made redundant and in the recession getting another job wasn't easy. I let my cottage out, bought an around the world air ticket and got a working holiday visa for Australia. My trip lasted just over one year and when I came home I became a student at university. I became a primarry school teacher.
