Traveling brings with it new experiences and life lessons which can’t be learnt on a nine to five job. One should definitely travel the world. But traveling is one thing that you should do just for the sake of traveling and not to escape the realities of the world. As fancy it may sound to quit your job and start traveling the world, once you do start traveling then you will face problems there too. It is not going to be a piece of cakewalk.
Don’t just blindly follow others and travel to show it off to the society.
Ask yourself a few questions.
- Why do you want to quit the job?
- How are you going to manage after losing the job?
- What about your family?
- Do you really want to travel the world?
If you don’t have answers to the above questions then it wouldn’t be all that wise to quit the one steady job you have and start on a traveling spree. Traveling may give you some answers though. But a few things need to be sorted out before itself. If you are facing problem at your workplace, then speak up. Share your problem, find its solutions. Because running away is never the right decision. You can run once, maybe twice but not all the time. Problems don’t vanish if you stop acknowledging them. Don’t forget that one day you will return to the same place from where you began.
No one likes the burden of responsibilities. And that is why we associate our childhood as the best part of our life. We used feel free as a bird! We all want to run away from our responsibilities. A break is fair enough. But after a stage in life you really don’t seem to have the alternative of being irresponsible. You end up paying for your casual attitude.
But like everything, it is easier said than done.
Quit your job only if you have enough savings and a source of income ready for your return. If you do have a family, then you have to think about their welfare too.
The jest of the matter at hand is that you must have everything arranged for in your absence.
During the travel
Now that you have taken the decision to quit the job then start preparing for your adventures. Embarking on an extended journey requires you to take that leap of faith and leave key responsibilities behind, but those who have done it say the experience is worth it all.
To begin your journey, find your dream destination. Research about it. Get to know their traditions and culture. Be informed about the physical conditions like temperature and weather about that location. Pack your bags accordingly. Make the necessary arrangements. Chalk out a schedule but leave enough free spaces for unknown adventures!
