the vacation life


time to spend the day doing a metric fuckton of laundry, watching Black Sails, and playing Sunless Sea on my iPad

we have so much rum now

so much

This notion—that material investment is somehow more important to life than personal investment—is exactly what leads so many of us to believe we could never afford to go vagabonding. The more our life options get paraded around as consumer options, the more we forget that there’s a difference between the two. Thus, having convinced ourselves that buying things is the only way to play an active role in the world, we fatalistically conclude that we’ll never be rich enough to purchase a long-term travel experience.
