My personal Walkabout

Three months ago, I decided to change my life. It seemed like a hard decision, but it wasn’t. A colleague told me: “crazy people are us, ones who think that spending 9 hours per day in this office is a smart way of life”.

Hell yeah. She was right. What was I doing with my life? I was earning big money, having lunches in fancy restaurants and going on business trips to the States… All it was my ego against real me. I love nature, landscape, markets… I´m in love with my friends, family and with the smell of coffee early in the morning.

So, I decided to begin my personal walkabout. China, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos without a real schedule, nor a compass. The first 15 days are finished. My life changed in those weeks more than in months. I grew each day more than during my entire MBA program.

I´m still scared. Everyday here is an adventure. But I fucking love it.
