Three Days to Adjust to New City

Three Days to Adjust to New City
I am trying to devise a simple method of earning travel money on the internet. I am experimenting with photos pages and trying my best to document the problems and solutions.

I found it took me three days to adjust from the trip from Mexico to Guatemala. I think this adjustment is what could stop many travelers as they would never stop putting enjoyment before work.

There is a rush of excitement upon entering a new country, new colors, new people, and new words.

Irwin the man who works in the hotel corrected me; I am now an Extranjero, and not a Gringo.

This rush is addictive, an endorphin push that many travelers become hopelessly in love with and continually self-inject by continuously moving. I am abnormally aware and cautious of addictive feeling because of my alcohol addiction.

The rush is great, however very disruptive to work, I tend to hide more in the room so I can adjust slowly.

My first time going into a new city on my own i had a miniature break-down. Everything felt too unfamiliar, and I decided to book a flight home for 10 days later. After a few days, I was more than happy in the city, and would quite happily have stayed longer or moved around more.

I wish I'd read this before I got there!

I'm looking forward to hearing more about your new method of making travel money with photos on the internet. I do love the rush of a new town, but I agree with you that truly getting your feet and feeling comfortable is worth taking mroe time in a new place.
