My dream of traveling the world is coming true!
"When one looks back over human existence, however, it is very evident that all culture has developed through an initial resistance against adaptation to the reality in which man finds himself"
- Beatrice Hinkle
Traveling the world. Most people only dream about such a thing. I once dreamed it. While I was dreaming it, I started to look around at why most people did not bring this dream to fruition.
My first thought was that it was a lack of money that held people back. As Ameircans, suposedly, we're in the top 10% of the world's weathiest people. So that can't be it. Then I started noticing people who were 40 and 50 years old sitting behind a computer in their cubicles. These are the people who said they were going to travel the world when they were younger. They never did.
Perhaps there's always an excuse. "I have to finish college." "I just got a new job." "I've got a new girl friend." "I just got married." "I just had a kid." "I'm too old for this stuff." All are perfectly good excuses not to have the time of your life by traveling around the world.
But I suddenly realized I was in a possition in my life where I had absolutely no excuse. I just finished college. I had no girlfriend, no kids, no house. I had a good-paying job, but that was it.
Then it hit me. If I don't travel around the world now, I never will.
Needless to say, that thought scared me into where I am right now. If you'd like the whole story of how me an William ended up becoming travel companions, check out our story.
We're merely days away from embarking on an incredible journey that will no doubt change our lives forever. Thanks for joining us on our adventure.
P.S. If you're one of the one's who doesn't think we can travel all the way around the world under $10,000 - keep your eyes fixed on our budget. That's right - we're making our budget public to prove that you don't need $300,000 to travel the world and have the time of your life.
