Re: I've decided to quit everything and travel the world

Is your blog serious business or just for friends?

Re: I've decided to quit everything and travel the world

Are you planning on trying to make money from it, or have you just set it up for friends/family etc?

Ah..

No money involved. I'm freely and gladly sharing and will never ask for any money to anyone.

Re: I've decided to quit everything and travel the world

post scriptum : while I'll never ask for any money doesn't mean that this blog (and journey) is not serious. This is a life turning point that I've started to share live (and will keep on doing, I'm gonna leave soon now)

Re: I've decided to quit everything and travel the world

I was just going to say (without trying to sound like an *******) that it needs a little bit of work if it was going to ultimately be used as a money making venture and/or wanted a big following.

For family/friends it's good.

Re: I've decided to quit everything and travel the world

ah ok, I get your point. Thanks for the comment. I will have plenty of time to think about turning this journey into something else. For the moment it's just sharing an (hopefully) epic journey.

Clearly a major turning point. We're not talking about holidays here.

Ohhh, great trip that you're gonna do ! I wish you all the best, I'm sure it will be awsome !

I'm leaving in one month. I wish I could leave earlier but still some vaccination stuff require me to stay longer. Date of departure : 2/11

I can't accept that rats' race making us be enslaved with a boring or ****ty job, go on vacation once a year, see friends on week ends, and start over on mondays, until the moment we die.

Life is something else. It has to be. And that what I've decided to find out.

I'm gonna leave my comfort zone in 1,5 month (roughly) with absolutely no plan besides hitting the road abroad.

I've decided to make a blog about this journey where I will share my adventures.

Hope that this journey will interest some of you here, who knows.

We only live (this life) once, so we'd rather enjoy it fully before it stops !

Cheers
Feel exactly like that, I'm going to read your blog when I get to the office tomorrow,

Subbed.

Re: I've decided to quit everything and travel the world

So many negative comment in this thread that I found it funny. OP is obviously good enough for the rest of is life with $500 000.

I'm 26 years old an planning to do something very similar to OP with only ~$35 000. I'm also going to quit my non university degree 100k/year job for that.

Moi je vais quitter en septembre pour l'Asie du Sud Est, peut être qu'on va se croiser. Bonne chance.

oh tu parles francais ? Super !

I really do wish you the best for your future trip. If you feel like doing it, then do it, regardless of what people will tell you. If you start living according to others standards, you won't do anything in life.

Don't worry about the haters. I really don't mind. They are just giving me more will to do it. I'm quite stubborn : the more you tell me that something is dumb the more I want to do it lol

Where will you be in SE Asia in september ?

lol it does seem like you're playing the "opposite day" game from school. everything for you is opposite. no more money coming in = set for life financially. don't know where to go = world trip to EVERYWHERE

I'm not sure yet, so many pros and cons in every countries. In fact since my budget is about 14 times smaller than yours I can't afford to travel the world. So my plan was more to find a country I like and stick to it. Learn local language and stay on budget as long as possible. Hopefully till I'm 30.

When I'll get back to Canada I'm thinking of doing a Bachelor in Philosophy and try to get a PhD.

Re: I've decided to quit everything and travel the world

I've been speaking about bank cards for 7 months already ? I thought that I was discussing about something else in my lattest video on my blog

I'm not world travelling using my whole 500k. I'm planning to spend 20k max, so you're fitting in the budget !

En fait ce que je voulais dire c'est que comme je pars seulement dans 7 mois, je n'aurais pas grand chose a poster mis a part les préparations ou 100 posts sur du genre ''c'est décidé je vais en Thailande'' , ''Ah non Laos finalement'' , ''Je vous ai dit que c'est le Vietnam que j'ai choisi comme destination?'' etc...


I think I missed the link to your blog, only video I recall seeing you post was about some Gabriel Hippie.

Re: I've decided to quit everything and travel the world

je comprends. Et puis, gérer un blog est beaucoup de travail, moi même je ne sais pas si je pourrai l'update aussi régulièrement que je veux.

here is the link (http://psychoworldnication.com/) and if you click at "follow my journey" you will see the articles with the video being the last one

I can't say where I'm gonna be in september. I'm a bit dreadful because I don't think september is that great for many asian countries (I might be wrong, have to check). I think that China is ok but I don't feel like going there (couldn't tell why). If I'm not wronh Indonesia is good in september so I might go there and then head toward Oz/NZ at the end of the year. We'll see, too soon to say !

I can't speak for others, but I'm not a hater. I gave my reasons why I believe this is a bad idea at this particular age, especially given the fact that you've given no thought whatsoever to what you're going to do when you run out of money down the road. That said, I wish you no ill will at all. I hope that this new life of yours works out in such a way that all your dreams and aspirations are fulfilled.
