It all started with some friends and a margarita. Or three.
And the discussion turned to travel and how we couldn’t really plan on big trips until we were retired.
Or could we?
As late 30-somethings we have been focused on career and building security for over 15 years. We have had the luxury of some great travel, but never more than 10 days.
- What would it be like to travel for a year while we are in prime health?
- Could we interrupt our careers to do this?
- What happens to our regular life while we are gone?
The third margarita made us bold, and we decided while walking home that we would do it – celebrate our 40th birthdays during this year of travel. We would go everywhere, do everything!
The next morning, I wondered if our enthusiasm would hold up to the cold light of day. And you know what? It did. So join us as we take the next 2 years to save and plan for our dream trip around the world.
