What kind of travelling?
Another time, I wrote a letter to a famous greek writer withought any information about me exept my address and he liked my letter so much, he searched for my phone number, contacted me and invited me to his home.
All my life I have been doing things like that. Diving into the unknown... It didn't always get me results, but at least I tried.
The visit to the travel agency was a funny and very revealing experience. It taught me never to set foot in one of these esptablishments ever again!
Well, maybe my approach was not very appropriate either, but... I thought I give it a try. To make long story short, I told them I don't have any experience except my own travelling and I would like to escort groups abroad. I told them I was even willing to do it voluntarily or even pay for my first trip - even though I'm penniless at the moment. The reaction I got was a lady making fun of me and "goofing" instead of "woofing", the voluntary programs abroad... I was very patient and trying to explain myself, until I thought it was worthless trying to convince her.
Do I want to work in an environment like this?
Woofing in farms has given me the best experiences I ever had in my life!
I want to help people. I want to know them. I want them to be my friends at the end.
I think I'll stay out of the tourist business for now!
