Since I’ve been talking about Italy this long, figured I’d do at least one more post from the country to help illustrate one of the things I DO love about Instagram. I got a few messages from people wondering why I dislike the app so much after yesterday’s post and if you read that much into what I wrote, I’m so sorry I didn’t communicate my meaning better. The fact is, I am so grateful to @instagram for the opportunities it has brought my way, the friendships I have made here and the more than 40 countries that I have been able to visit essentially just because of my following here. Like I said the other day, there is never a day I am ungrateful for these opportunities. It is cities such as Venice that have led me either directly, or indirectly, to what are some of the most important friendships I have.
.
Just as one example: While I never was able to meet @neumarc during a visit to Venice, it was because of work in the city that I found his account years ago and followed him, mesmerized by the images he shares. He had a larger following than I did then and I perceived that he was too good of a photographer to be interested in meeting lil ol me, so I never reached out. Then last year, we both ended up on a Viking Ocean Cruise and finally had the chance to meet. Marco is now a close friend and I won’t ever be visiting Venice again without seeing him there. I can’t imagine my world without his friendship. And he’s not the only one I feel that way about, that I’ve been able to meet essentially or actually because of IG.

You can choose to frame your view of IG in a positive way, you can make this place what you want it to be. And I choose to make it a place I come to for the people ♥️

What do you make it? Why are you here? I’d love to know! 🙏🏼

One of the most common questions I get via email is: how did I fund my first backpacking trip all those years ago? How could I afford to travel long-term before my blog made any money? 💸

Well, before I started traveling, while I was working a normal day job, I also had a “side-hustle” writing and selling a couple of ebooks online. It was this extra income that helped me fund that first year of travel adventures! 🌎

This isn’t the only way to earn some extra money on the side though. Watching cats & dogs. Renting out your car. Dressing up like Jesus. Selling blood plasma. Freelance bookkeeping. Assembling furniture. Running local tours. There are MANY ways if you think outside the box!
