I had somehow found a way to follow through with my word.
I love doing two things in life, running and travelling. One day I was sitting at my computer and thought, why not combine the two? You see, I have this goal to run a race in every state, and I love running so "runcation" was born. I am going to tell you about my Seattle runcation.
There are places that have nothing to do with our ideas of home, family and affections. Places that nothing have in common with important moments of our lifes. And yet, sometimes some of this places steals our hearts and minds, until they become “places of body and mind” where you go to find something, and that something is often yourself.
The same old saying "Early to bed, early to rise" is a bit twisted when it comes to typical African life. I left the city for the village when I got a call from an anonymous person who informed me of my grandmother's mysterious death. You'd be wondering why I didn't bother confirming it. It's because that's how it goes—people change their contacts again and again for reasons like, "I borrowed money and the owner keeps calling." I understand that is the only escape plan preferred. By not asking how she died, I saved myself from hearing causes I don't believe. Magic, Witchcraft, and Beliefs these are leading factors they would use to convince me with.

However there are hundreds of ways to generate money while travelling, and there is bound to be one that suits you!
Having broken down again, we were feeling pretty worse for wear. We were pulled up at the side of a small country road, somewhere in the south of France. However that day, our bad luck seemed to be balanced with an equal amount of good luck. A small red car began to pull up, all faded and battered. It almost looked as if it had stories to tell. We dreaded it. We couldn’t speak a word of French, how are we going to explain our problem? The man stepped out and began to walk towards us. He had a rather daunting look about him, like a man who had seen a lot. The tattoos on his arms were faded and scared, the lines on his face told a story of his life but his eyes were bright. He had a certain kindness in his face. As he approached us he spoke, in a deep Scottish accent.
