Travel or Career?


We all live in a world where travel is the ‘must-do’ thing. We constantly see and read about people who have quit their jobs to travel the world and it’s got me thinking..

Do we really need to quit our jobs to travel the world?

There are people who will work their butts off for months, scrimping and saving every last penny to travel.

There are people who will rarely travel because they want to focus on their career.

And there are people who want both, travel and a career.

(This isn’t everyone but you get the idea..)

Scrolling through my Instagram and Pinterest, I often find myself full of jealousy and am constantly envious of these daily posts while I’m sat behind my computer desk.

I always think about how easy it would be to quit and travel the world. But then what?

After the money runs dry and living on barely nothing wears thin, what happens?

Returning home happens.

Back to the reality which was escaped in the beginning.

I once read a quote;

‘Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from’ – Seth Godin

I love to travel, and I love to experience and explore new places but I also love the location I live in and my friends and family around me. Does that really mean that I need to leave behind everything I love and have worked hard for?

Everyone will always see the world differently.

So, the question I asked at the beginning…

Do we really need to quit our jobs to travel the world?

My answer: Nope.
