One phrase I’d heard too often – “You only know how to spend money.” After deducting 25% of my monthly earnings which goes to the household allowances, 20% to my insurance, 35% to my food, transport, telecommunications & daily necessities, whatever that’s remaining is for extra indulgences to pamper myself like travelling. Yes, I really only know how to spend money 😂
But I find that money spent on travel is money well spent as it makes you richer, whether in education, experiences, knowledge or memories. There are people who put their travelling plans on hold for all kinds of reasons - saving the $$ for emergencies like forever or taking care of the family's needs first. Some even put household chores as their #1 priority and not wanting to travel because of it. Will the world fall apart if you don't mop the floor for a few days? Does that make you a bad partner, wife or mother if you do not have a sparkling clean kitchen? 🙄
I say we should all go travel as much and often as we can while we’re young and can afford it, and not wait until we're aged, less mobile with existing medical conditions because travel will not be as fun and fulfilling by then.
So how do you manage your money? Are you the type of person who spends as much as you earn, or always saving up for a rainy day & not wanting to travel?
Because of life and funny timing I spent my birthday yesterday solo, in one of the loveliest and most magical places on earth-Sintra. I hiked many miles up and down hills, throughout palatial gardens, secret paths and misty forests. And then I treated myself to a special dinner. Incomum is run by a native son of Portugal who trained in France. The food! The staff! The space! So delightful in every way. And then they did that thing with a candle and sparkler, when the entire room chimes into sing to a stranger (thanks, lady concierge!)...And I loved every minute! ❤️🙏🏽🇵🇹
This beautiful renaissance style palace was built in 1921 by HRH Krisnaraja Wodeya for the exclusive stay of the Viceroy of India. It has since been turned into a hotel. Join one of our tours and you will dine in this grand ballroom. If only the walls could talk. One can't help but wonder about the many people who have passed through these doors.
