I’m 33 years old and currently live in upstate NY USA. I have reached a crossroads in my life, and I’d love to hear from you if you feel the same , or have been in my shoes. I have a career that I hate, and I am too free spirited to be tied down for any length of time. It is my dream to just sell everything I own, keep my most precious belongings with a friend, throw a few things in my back pack, and see the world. I consider myself an eccentric individual that somehow doesn’t belong in the structured world I live in. I am not rich by any means so travel isn’t an extravegance for me. I would end up with maybe 15K to do this with. I just feel like there is so much out there that I want to do and see and there has to be away for me to accomplish it. Meet different people along the way, see the sunset from the other side of the world, experience different culture, not live on a time line. I sometimes worry that this kind of adventure is only for teenagers, some of friends tell me I am crazy for wanting this, but no matter how hard I try, I just can’t loose the desire. ANyone feel this way too? Please tell me your thoughts…

I’m 30…I started my traveling adventures late, way after collge and only when I had a decent enough job with money to do it. It started with Japan (a friend was teaching there), then I did a solo journey through Viet Nam and Cambodia and this past year I did Germany, France, Andorra, and Spain-part hanging with a punk rock band on tour and the other backpacking with my friend.
You are NEVER to old to determine how to lead your life, what is important and worth fighting for, nor are there any rules to follow or live by. YOU alone determine what kind of person you want to be- someone who does not gossip, who performs random acts of kindness regardless how small, who brings their lunch to work, lives without cable or internet at home for the sake of saving money to travel to a foreign land. It’s up to you to be the person you want to be, so start writing a list of what and then compare to what you already do (and keep up those practices) or what you lack (and figure out what you need to get there). You’d be suprised by what a person can do with just a little bit of grit, their own intelligence and faith.
Good Luck and Best of Travels!!!!
