I’ve struck gold and came up with the best idea in the world. I have decided that I am going to paint my way through South America. As an artist and creator I was weary about traveling for a year trying to find places or things to paint. I knew it wouldn’t be easy as it would probably be costly and quite heavy to carry around supplies and attempt to sell work. What I didn’t realize was that there are other ways!
I guess that’s what traveling has done for me. You become more creative, more thrifty, and have to think and feel outside your normal comfort zone.
So I’ve booked two gigs. I email hostels and attach my website and give them a reason to take me in while I paint their hostel. It’s just one mural. The deal is usually a bed and meals for free on return for my service. Amazing? I couldn’t think of anything better.
So my travel plans had changed. I may be traveling longer than anticipated and on a completely different way than the average traveler. I think it’s beautiful and its actually the reason why I do not like to plan my whole year out and have these expectations of what it’s going to be like!
So here is to a different way a traveling! Wish me luck!
