It’s my career
Short stint through Europe, then cross the Strait into Morocco , Egypt, Mozambique, Madagascar, Malaysia and Indonesia, including Borneo and Sulawesi, then either north to Tibet and Laos or straight to OZ and NZ.
Travel is my number one hobby. And my other hobbies (diving, hiking, rock climbing) all involve travelling, so why not just live a life of hobbies for a year? Plus, I’ve worked as a vet for ten years and everyone should take a year every ten years in their carreer – at least that’s what I’m planning.
Some kind of a big pandemic that would stop me from going. Also while I’m travelling, I fear losing my passport – I check for it in my purse every half hour – it’s obsessive!
YES. They can’t wait for me to go again, as they love my tavel updates!
Camera, passport, journal and cash card. Everything else is replaceable.
I will learn new places, i will meet new peole, discover new hobbies, and who knows perhaps I will find my new place to live.
I CAN”T WAIT!!!
There is nothing like not having a dead-line or destination that is set in stone. Only then does one really feel free and rootless.
That they can’t do it.
Breaks to routine. It is all new territory.
Leave room for the unplanned. Whether you know it or not, you will end up changing your plans and go to countries that weren’t in you itinerary. Keep your RTW ticket simple, and make sure you get one that allows for changes without penalty.
