Noticed the Title Change.
I located your site by goggling "budget", as I am researching the,"How To's", of traveling on a tight budget.
That said,I wish you luck with your new Tag Line.
K.C. in Cold Ontario Canada
BTW, enjoy beautiful D.R. The people are refreshing when you can get away from the "international areas".
This is true. The travel writer life seems romantic until you do it. It is a matter of supply and demand: there are tons of quality writers who want to be travel writers. So they don't get paid anything, they must write crap to make any money at all. Even the real pros make next to nothing for the garbage they write, while anything that is actually interesting is not publishable.
I think I published around 8 articles in print. I think I may have gotten paid $500 total for this. People will work for any amount of money if they can do what they enjoy.
You hit the nail on the head today about artist and teaching. I'm a photographer and am still resisting the need to teach. I've been reading your travel comments for about 5 years and very rarely post comments but today you nailed it! Looking forward to tomorrow.
Hobo says...I will allow people to come travel with me for a month. This person would have the ability to bleed me dry, to quickly figure out my methods.
Chuck says.....as long as we don't have to get up before Noon and there is room service I'm your man.
I heard there was a pretty earthquake. Be safe and watch out of Tsunamis!
I felt a big shifting, what felt like a strange one, it happened about 20 minutes ago, maybe at about 6:10 pm, DR time. I was as if the top part of the land was sliding, it was not a rumble. I thought i was dizzy, ran outside and stood, I have no desire to be inside a concrete building.
yep posted comment on post before
Major quake rocks Haiti hospital collapses
Magnitude 7 temblor hits west of capital no word on casualties
Major quake prompts tsunami watch for parts of Caribbean

Good Move Andy getting out of the building.
That should be rule number #1 Get TFO of a 3rd world concrete building during a earth quake.
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - A powerful magnitude 7 quake struck Haiti on Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. A hospital collapsed and people were screaming for help.
The quake was centered about 10 miles west of the Caribbean nation's capital, Port-au-Prince. It had very shallow at a depth of only 6.2 miles, the USGS said.
God is on your trail. Escape is futile. Unless you follow the Hobo.
i found your site this morning whilst searching for information on the haiti website. After reading about your stay at the orphanage i felt the need to check that the orphange is ok following this disaster.
It must be terrible and very challenging for Greg and Jasmine to live in Haiti with the risks associated. It takes a very brave and dedicated type of person to dedicate their life to the care of another.
i should imagine that a disaster such as the earthquake is really not what is needed but i hope that they stay positive and continue with their excellent work. They are truly inspirational.
i hope that your travels continue to wonderful places and that you continue to explore the lives and loves of many people around the world.
i shall keep following your travels and wish you luck.
