I was on the verge of turning 30 and realized I hadn’t done many of the things I’d wanted to accomplish at this milestone in my life. At the top of the list: traveling around the world on my own, just me and a backpack.
One day I decided I just had to do it.
So I quit my job and became a traveler of the world, my entire life packed into a carry-on size backpack. After spending the year traipsing around Asia, Africa, and South America, I returned to the States with a newfound excitement for life.
I know there are thousands of people out there who want to travel around the world, either on their own or with others, for a short vacation or a long trip, but don’t think they can. Hopefully my stories will inspire you to take the world trip you’ve always wanted!
