To travel the world one stop at a time.
Have you ever dreamed or thought about doing this before? I have and I feel compelled at this stage in my life to seek it out and fulfill the dream.
If you have extensive or random experience in world travel, please feel free to share your experiences & especially your advise.
My plan consist of picking destinations to travel to. Once there I will find the cheapest place to stay, acquire a job and work until I have enough saved up for the next destination. Planning will be limited and open to a mass degree flexibility so I can adapt to anything that comes at me.
Italy looks like it might be my 1st stop abroad but nothing is set in stone. I’m currently reading Vagabonding by Rolf Potts and I must say it is an amazing read. Both before reading this book and durning, my mind has been a buzzed with ideas, worries, concerns and excitement!
I feel, in some weird way, that the personal events I have experienced and dealt with over past several years has oddly prepared me for this very quest. The impending foreclosure on my Townhouse down in Charleston, SC has forced me to simplify my life and depart with so many material things already.
Now, I just need to downsize my belongings a few more notches and I’ll be prepped to take off and see the world :)
I need help from any & all who read this. I need info & shared knowledge from people who have traveled extensively or “have done” or are currently doing this now.
Please suggest the best types of backpacks, travel bags, shoes, clothing, etc.. Best destinations for work/stay, safety issues or concerns.
One area that would be a HUGE help would be ideas & suggestions about money issues: making it, exchanging it, storing it. Can a travel blog be an options to make some coin while documenting my travel or is this now cliché and overdone?
