We pass a pair of apathetic llamas resting on the asphalt, stylishly dressed in sparkly top hats and sequined saddles. Their handler tries to entice us with a photo opportunity. I’m tempted, but I feel like strapping on one of the cowboy hats the lamas have tied to their saddles for visitors and wrapping my arms around their necks like we’re old high school buddies would be insulting.
It’s a common misconception that traveling is expensive. It can be wildly pricey, or it can be unbelievably cheap, depending on your travel style, the countries you visit, how fast you travel, and the exchange rate of the money you’ll be traveling with.
