The ups and downs of traveling

I’ve mostly been doing posts about what I’ve done, but this time, I’m going to try something new.

????The good things about traveling are:

  • if you are cold at home, there’s a pretty good chance that it will be warmer where you go
  • there are interesting animals
  • usually a pool
  • eat out a lot

????The less good things about traveling are:

  • you miss home
  • you get bored
  • repacking to move from place to place

????But there are solutions to some of the problems:

  • FaceTime with who you miss
  • have repeatable things (this means you can do them several times, like drawing, or playing with putty)
  • have a good packing system


I’m in Sri Lanka now. It’s quite cold, and we went to a tea plantation today.
