Perpetual Travelers Life “If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss.”
Rudyard Kipling (1865 - 1936) Indian-born British writer and poet.
My friend wrote explaining ideas about perpetual traveler’s life; I found it interesting to have him address the concept of change. I find I have a throttle control on the changes in my life as I can travel fast or slow, if I am bored, I just step on the change pedal, if I am too excited I hit the breaks and stay inside the room more.

I think people romanticize this travel life, there is really nothing loving, caring, and cuddly about being a perpetual traveler. It is more the proposition of make chaos your friend.
Change is normal, I do not think being a perpetual traveler is normal; however, it for sure is a life less normal… hehehe
12 HOUR OF BOREDOM I continually deal with abrupt change, I recently spent 12 hours in the Airport in Korea, whereby a person could become frustrated bored.
12 HOURS OF CHANGE Last week I went to the Fort Wayne, Airport at 4:00 am, they cancelled my plane, put me on another flight whereby I change planes in Atlanta, and then again in Mexico City, arriving in Acapulco. The bag did not arrive; I had no change of clothes, went to the beach about one hour away and found a room after walking around for two hours.
I am not sure, maybe take a test, tonight after work when you are on the direct path home, suddenly turn and find your way to the largest airport around. Look at the flights arriving and departing, sleep in the airport.
If you are happy with the idea of not leaving the airport, and also happy with the idea of leaving on the next plane. If both thoughts seem like happy thoughts, you could brag to your friends.
