Since we are leaving soon, I have been taking stalk of what I truly take for granted while I am at home in my comfortable apartment.

We have a budget, we travel locally and we stop at the toilets on the side of the road during a long ride and pray that the stalls aren’t too disgusting.
So, as I sip my tea with music playing in the background in my air conditioned 2 bedroom, 2 bath flat, I must ponder where I will be in a few months and not take moments like these right now for granted. Here are some of the things that I have missed dearly over our years of traveling off the beaten path that I definitely take for granted each day while I am at home.

But what we were really excited to see was the sculpture of a whale skeleton that someone put together years ago.
