Long Term Travel Guide for Leaving Your Job - Nomadical Sabbatical. Is your boss an asshole?
(don’t say yes if you’re self employed). Maybe you just have that feeling that you’ve got better things to do with your time than make someone else rich? That’s how I felt before I quit my job to follow my dream of seeing the world. Long term travel was something I had always wanted to do but life somehow always got in the way. I made the decision to quit my job and travel the world, here’s how I did it and how you can too. The lazy tourists bucket list Long term world travel seems to be one of those things everyone says they want to do but seem to never actually get around to doing. When I tell people i’m going overseas for more than a year of travel they usually just shake their heads and say, “I wish I could just quit my job and travel too”. 1) Who’re you lying to? Been to Machu Picchu yet? Isn’t it dangerous? What about my kids? I don’t have enough money! Monthly Expenses (January 2012) Total: $2,477 The biggest expense for a traveller is accommodation.

WORLD TRAVEL is cheap and easy. In fact, with a little practice and effort, you can travel for free. The idea that travel is expensive and difficult is bullshit peddled by tour companies, hotel chains, and corporate media.

While it’s true that I’ve already written plenty of posts on the matter, clearly all of these posts, even as one collective entity, still fall well short of proving that a life of travel is not some crazy fantasy but a perfectly reasonable and easily attainable lifestyle option instead. So what am I to do? December 25, 1999: Career Break: How to Quit Your Job and Travel.

So many—including Goldman Sachs, General Mills, the Container Store, and about 20 others listed as Fortune’s Top 100 Companies to Work For in 2015—have begun offering paid sabbaticals. Good employees do, too. I know this because, six months ago, I did it myself. With the decision to quit came an avalanche of others: Sublet or move out? Saving up is, of course, the hardest part. When you tell colleagues, they’ll be dubious. Notey. Why You Should Quit Your Job and Travel around the World : The Art of Non-Conformity.
