We, the human race, have made great strides
since the dawn of time. First light, then flight, then Facebook. Onward and upward and
then everywhere all the time. Manifest destiny on the grandest of scales. The world is changing,
and not always for the best. But she’s been with us
since the beginning. The world is our oldest
friend. So, seems we owe her a visit. There are 7 billion of us and counting, and
each one of us has been given 80 years to do what we will. Maybe more, maybe less. So
we’ve all got time and a heartbeat, but apart from that our resources vary. Money. Some
say it’s what makes the world go round, and nearly everyone says it’s what’s keeping them
from going around the world. But it doesn’t have to. For the most part the world’s still
free, and in 20 years you’ll even say it was cheap. Plus you can’t put a price on freedom,
good company, and the kindness of strangers. So go on then, get out of here. We did. We
left LAX on an eastbound around-the-world ticket. And that was the extent of our planning.
We had no schedule, a bag full of cheap cameras, and just enough money to get by. The same
amount of money, in fact, that it would’ve taken just to pay rent and phone bills had
we never left at all. Around the world.
On the cheap. Sixpenny Globe.
