I just read this Luck, schmuck! post too. Personally I believe that for the most part (regardless of what people say), we all make decisions and live our lives by what we prioritise highest or are most comfortable with. For people who can afford to, but still carry on about not being able to travel - they clearly have other things they would rather spend their money on. And that's fine, but like Just Ange I really don't care for the 'you are so lucky' line either. Reply to this

I quit my job and traveled for a year across the Country best move i ever did. Only problem is trying to adjust when you come back. Reply to this

I agree with you Brian, coming back can be much harder than leaving - not only for the sudden lack of travel, but more so if the countries you visit on your travels are very different from your home one. It is possible to experience culture shock when returning to your usual country of residence. Reply to this

We quit our jobs the first time in 2007 and traveled for 10 months. We were content the 1st six months after our return but the wanderlust came back with a vengeance. We are currently on a five month trip and enjoying it to the fullest.

So many great experiences that will be with us for a lifetime. Reply to this
