Keeping Costs Down

San Diego, California
I\’m trying to stretch my money, so I can keep on traveling. I feel alive. I am becoming mentally, spiritually, and physically healthier. I didn\’t realize how much weight I put on these last few months. Maybe I was in a functional not so functional depression after Scott\’s transition. I don\’t know. I thought I was doing well until I got here and my mind cleared.
I am walking everyday to the beach. I am eating less and healthier. 
This morning I got up at 6 a.m. and hit the restaurant next door by 6:30 a.m. so I wouldn\’t have to wait in line. I ordered a coffee to go and a spinach omelette with sourdough toast. I split the omelette in half, one portion for breakfast, the other for late lunch. In the frig, the omelette turned into a frittata, that works!  I bought a bar of chocolate that will last three days to pair with the organic passion green tea the motel provides and a cup of noodles. Today\’s cost for food in the most expensive area to stay in San Diego $20. A little over my budget, but that\’s okay, I\’m getting the hang of it. I\’m learning how to travel inexpensively.
Next week, I am going to be staying at a hostel for the first time. I booked a private room with a shared bath at a very good price. I\’m not ready for bunk beds in the dorms at hostels yet. I am testing the waters first.

Next week, at the hostel, I think I will be ready to start meeting new people, listening to their stories and acclimating to being around \”strangers\”.  If it gets to be too much, I can retreat to my private room to take breaks. I want to be able to live in community and learn more about myself and others in the process. Plus I will have more photos and stories to share on the blog!
