Quit your job, sell everything and hit the road
People doing this are crazy. How do they survive? Where do they get the money to travel full time without a 9–5 job? Yet, I envy them and their freedom.
Having income security is a high priority for most people. I know this. It has been my priority for the last 10 years. And you know what? I’m over it.
I’ve decided to take the plunge. I’m going to join the crazy bunch. Sell my house. Sell my car. Quit my job. Travel the world and take amazing photos of my amazing journeys.
In preparation, I’ve been reading up on how others do it, how they finance their travels. Most of them are bloggers and photographers. Even read of a family with 5 children (!!) that just travel the world full time. Kids get home schooled and parents write blogs and take photos for a living. Now, who doesn’t want that life!? If they can do it with 5 children, I can certainly do it.
So this is where my journey begins. My house is on the market. I’ve started taking photos and published on stock sites for a (small) continuous income. Planning on self publishing a few ebooks for the same reason. And then go where the road (or the plane) takes me. As a backup, I can always freelance in whichever country I am in for some extra cash to buy my next ticket.
Wish me luck. I’ll keep you updated!
