Why travel? Why now?

Posted by daveb on June 21st, 2007

Squiffy says:
Travel is fun, exciting and scary; you never know what’s around the corner! Why now? When Dave and I met we said we’d travel the world in two year’s time. And here we are, two years and two months later, ready to go.

daveb says:
We just wanted to wait until we both had great jobs, a great home and a great life <sarcasm>so that we could toss it all in the air!</sarcasm>

It is a really difficult decision to leave what we have now: We are just about to finish renovating our first home together. We’ve only been living here for about 16 months and will not even be spending a whole month it in once the work has been completed. Plus, SQ really enjoyed her job teaching English locally; a walk-to-work job no-less — how many other Londoners can claim this? I recently finished my last day at work and it is the best client that I’ve ever worked with: the people, the things we created.

Having said all of the above, there’s seldom a better time to do something than right now. Travel is something that a lot of people postpone forever… and then regret it. As Henry David Thoreau, in his book Walden, puts it

“[One ends up] spending the best part of one’s life earning money in order to enjoy a questionable liberty during the least valuable part of it.”

Wish us luck!
