Sometimes I get the question, “How can you afford to travel all these places?” in the comment box. And the answer is, I can’t really afford it. So in order to fund my travel addiction, I do things like eat popsicles for dinner. And sell my clothes on ebay. And use my webcam as a mirror.
Yes, I know it doesn’t cost anything to look in the mirror. But it does cost to buy a new light bulb for your windowless (and therefore sunlight-less) bathroom. And I’m moving out of this place in a few days so you better believe I’m not wasting the extra few Euros on a light bulb I won’t even be enjoying come July 1st – Euros that could be spent on gelato. Or pastries. Or baby pinks. Or, yeah, something that’s actually travel-related, I suppose…
Anyway, webcam hair and makeup sessions are actually much more effective than you’d think.
And you thought Rick Steves was the master of Europe on a shoestring.
