The worst part about travel is saving for it. Unless you’re a points or budget-travel expert, travel is expensive, and if you’re the type of person who prioritizes travel before work, then you’re also the type of person who probably doesn’t make a ton of money off of your work. So the interludes in between two of your big trips can turn into these hellish bouts of self-deprivation and poverty, where every dollar spent puts you a dollar further away from your next excursion.
Naturally, to ease the pain of the awful purgatory of stationary life, you have to become extremely good at optimistic self-deception. So these are the lies you tell yourself while saving for travel.
