I have to admit that being able to be one of these Travel Bloggers and travel on your own terms is a gifted prejudice . The 21st century folks find salvation in expeditions. For travel bloggers like me, this prejudice is full-filled in the form of our careers where we are paid to travel. It’s a pretty sweet gig, isn’t it? However, it’d be inappropriate to say that we hippies lead a super comfortable and boisterous life or that we are do not slog to earn this bounty prejudice. No. The truth is, we wild creatures put in hours of struggle and work into making our dream of adventure, come true, everyday.
