Pages of Vagabond’s Diary
Many people used to enjoy sleeping in a van down by the river a pile of straw in a field, or even an abandoned truck in the middle of the Canadian prairie. The person can still appreciate the ability to snuggle down in a big soft pile of dirt when necessity requires it. He has to admit that he has become a bit spoiled. Actually, he has always been a bit spoiled specially for crying out loud and lived in a beat up VW van that was bought for $125.
One of the most beautiful beaches in the world is at Kauai’s Blue Lagoon in Kapaa. He used to live in another van next to spawning salmon and Alaskan waterfalls. When he used that term, he thought people are not real sure what to think so I thought it might be a good idea to explain it in this week’s Vagobond Travel Museum.
Quirky luxury is that moment when the people wake up and go “Holy shit, I’m so lucky to be here.” He is lying in a big fluffy bed with Looney Tunes Masks on the wall as one example and also used to have 400 thread count sheets in my $125 VW. The person just came back from the Sahara where he slept in a Berber tent but dried his face with a fluffy white towel.
Luxury is something that is beyond just the essential but that adds to a feeling of comfort, harmony, and pleasure. Like the soft fluffy towel in the tent or the high thread count sheets in the van. He remember back in the old days on Fairhaven Beach which is located off the Leash Beach for those who remember and also when they would sit around the fire with the bums and cook salmon on cedar shakes with capers and lemon butter. Staying in the five-star caves of Taskonaklar in Cappadocia where all the people were pampered and showered with delicious food, wine, and products.
