Europe Plans, continued
I've figured out how I'm going to support my travels! I'm going to be a travelling masseur! I'll find the health and fitness centers in the towns I travel through and offer my services, on a by-donations basis (you decide what to pay). They supply a table, and clean towels if they have them; I bring my own towels, oils, and a sign ("The Great Jimmilioso: Massages from across the World! Be amazed and relaxed."?).

On what expertise do I plan to do this? I don't have time to get certified, but I recently bought The Complete Guide to Massage, which I'm going to study over Winter Holiday, and I'll get another book on Massage Therapy. M.I.N.E. is having a one-day Introduction to Swedish Massage workshop on January 7, and there's a four-meeting class under MIT's IAP. And then there's you. I need subjects to experiment my techniques on. Want a free massage? Get in touch with me, and I'll get in touch with you.

My only fear is that the idea is so obvious that everyone and her sister is already doing it and that the whole "wandering masseur" market is saturated over there.

Give Tracy neck rubs. She needs them something fierce. And all new techs have to do it eventually.
