There are 24 hours in a day, and it is difficult to fill all of them, without taking on silly aspirations or goals. I can always do the silly, and be a tourist for eight hours. This is very old and tiresome, I will admit I walk around looking at least 3 to 4 hours per day, but to be told, I must look at a museum or tourist site, that probably does not interest me, they I give up.

I therefore do what I like to do, I read a few hours, or watch movies if possible a few hours per day. I am very grateful presently for having about 20-30 PDF books in my computer. I ran out of books about three books ago, now I am reading them on my computer. It is comfort to lose the weight of seven books, this is a lot of extra weight, and if I were carrying the food and this, it would make my one backpack weigh easily over 30 kilos or 65 pounds.

I now am worried; I am using up my source of books. These were not easy to get, I must find new ones. I read that google.com has released many classics, book scanned in that I can read, however, classics are often tiresome and less fun, I will try though. I read for fun, I never try to read a book for educational purposes. If it is educational fine, but I choose to read for entertainment. I do not see much value in education for the sake of education, for curiosity or to make money yes, but to just learn when it is not fun, no. I like to learn, but only when it is fun.
