Traveling Essentials: Q-tips
It’s kind of difficult to capitalize on everything a place has to offer. Especially since things cost money, traveling essentials can add up so you have to choose wisely and realize you can’t bring all your amenities . As of right now I’m putting together my trip to Barcelona, but I can’t leave until after the 21st when hopefully all this work visa business will be put to bed.
So I’m biding my time, keeping spending down to a minimum, and looking for travel writing jobs. There aren’t a ton, but they are out there. I’m also reaching out to contacts in Spain for possible shows. I’m really excited for Barcelona, I’ve been dying to go since I was a kid.
After I get this visa it will clear up a lot of things. Until then I wait. The weather in Berlin has been crap so I spent the day doing some cleaning and ran some errands gotta keep all traveling essentials on lock and ready to make moves.
Gotta Have ‘Em
I got q-tips! Lemme tell you something, I didn’t want to buy them on the road because they only ever sell them by like the thousand, and I’m not about to lug around a giant box of q-tips all over Europe. So honestly since I ran out of the handful of them that I brought with me I’ve been jacking them. I’m at a house party? I grab a couple q-tips. New Airbnb host? Gotta have em. I’m not cocky about it, but it’s also one of those things that I constantly forget to buy when I’m in the store. And honestly I love using q-tips to clean my ears. I don’t care how bad it is, I can’t have gross ears.
But my roommate to my apartment doesn’t have any either. Shameful. How am I supposed to steal me some q-tips then? So today I figure I owe the world some q-tips. So I’ll buy a box, take some with me when I leave. and the rest Tobi can enjoy.
