This Blog is Entitled: What I Would Do If I Had No Money.
Wait - I don't have any money.
In that case, I want to tell you what I've done with no money. A little over one year ago, I arrived in Switzerland with, well, about $500. I'd bought a plane ticket and signed up for a new family.
(Nothing wrong with the old one, by the way. Hey, guys!)
I've since spent that $500 - most likely all on Swiss chocolate (Hey, Lindt!) and a number of other monetary chunks that arrived in my bank account courtesy of the Swiss family (Hey, Swiss fam! - wait, I hope you are NOT reading this).
Now, I want to make it clear that I did work for the money. Some people have mistakenly assumed that I've been on holidays for the last year (Hey guys! Nope!)
But, one vacuum fades into the next and I can make beds in my sleep now (1.3 seconds) and I'm now at the end of a year that I only started with $500.
$500 + Bed-making + Vacuuming + a whole bunch of other work =
The most amazing year in Switzerland. And a whole lot of other places. Travel & Adventure & Having to step outside of myself to be able to see everything a bit clearer. New friends & the chance to be a part of this whole other world.
And 7,000 photos. I am NEVER going to be able to sort through all of that.
Pretty sweet deal eh? All of that on $500+...
Perhaps I should title this blog: How I survived in Switzerland (home of the most expensive Big Mac in the world) on $500.
