One of the things we realize though, now that we're two and a half months into this kind of a trip, is that you sure don't need very much "stuff". But there are drawbacks. For example, footwear. I have my hiking boots, which are comfortable, and I love them for hiking. And I also have a cheap pair of flipflop sandals that are pretty much only good for walking around the flat. But I think I should have brought a better pair of sandals as secondary shoes. In the motorhome, we have all of our "stuff" with us.
Laundry isn't easy. We've been fortunate to be able to use a washing machine a few times while staying with couchsurfers, but otherwise Ruth has been doing a few items each day by hand, and hanging them to dry. It keeps us going alright, but it's not as simple as it was in Mexico where you could find a laundry place where they will wash, dry, and fold for one cheap price and have your things ready to pick up the same or the next day. Or in the U.S. where every small town has a laundromat.
Missing driving the motorhome.
And meals are always interesting. Sure, we could go to restaurants more to make things easier, but that's more expensive, and we like our own cooking so we always manage to find a way to eat something healthy. But in the motorhome, you've got everything you need to make delicious healthy meals easily.
We think we've decided that this type of living is good for us for a maximum of three months at a time. Not saying that we're tired of it, and we will do it again, but we've got enough experience that we now understand the limitations.
However, we've got another month to go yet! And we're still excited about that part of it, so let's carry on.
Sorry for the poor excuse of a header picture today, but we simply didn't do anything yesterday! We left the flat only to go to pick up a couple of items at the grocery store. It rained in the morning, and in the afternoon we watched some movies. But we needed a rest day after all that hiking.
Today, we're headed for the city of Poprad at the eastern side of the Tatra Mountains. We take a bus for 40 minutes and then a train for 40 minutes.
Once again, not sure of where we're staying tonight, but we have some ideas.
Can't believe it's only 10 days until we fly back to England!
