Right now I am sitting 12,600 feet up at Annapurna Base Camp in the middle of the Himilayas. I've spent maybe only 40% of money today, that I would have sitting on the couch and watching TV at home. It's unbelievably cold up here though! I was not prepared for the bitter cold and I have spent most of the day drinking tea in the dining hall. $1.40 to sleep at a guesthouse with the greatest view in the world. Have I stumbled upon some sort of mysterious code that most Americans cannot figure out? I don't understand why more Americans don't travel abroad. When I hear a North American accent I assume that the person is Canadian because 90% of the time they are.
Sitting at home is more expensive than world travel.
