While staying at luxury hotels can be quite exciting, nothing beats the feeling of coming home. Before we started our selfish year of travels, Mrs. Selfish and took tons of weekend trips, culminating in our once-a-year international trip over the Thanksgiving holiday.
While getting out of the States and traveling to new countries was exhilarating, it was also exhausting. If you’re from the States, vacationing is about three things: maximizing, maximizing, maximizing.
By the end of each international trip, we were more tired then when we had started. Coming home in itself was a treat – a chance to catch up on sleep and get back into the ol’ routine.
Traveling for a year straight is the same deal, except now there is no home to come home to. It’s exciting, but also tiring – not to mention expensive. Fortunately, that’s where apartment rentals come in.
