I Quit My Job to Travel the World, and It Was the Best Decision I’ve Ever Made


I was fresh out of college and working my first “real” job. I was happy enough, but something was missing. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, but I knew I needed a change. I needed something more.

I had always loved traveling, but I’d never been able to do much of it because I was always working. I’d take the occasional vacation here and there, but it was never anything more than a week or two and it was always to somewhere nearby. I knew I wanted to see more of the world, but I didn’t know how to make it happen.

Then, one day, I came across an article about someone who had quit their job to travel the world. They detailed their entire journey, and it sounded like the most amazing thing I’d ever heard. I was hooked. I knew that was what I wanted to do.

I started doing some research and I quickly realized that this was a huge undertaking and it wasn’t going to be easy. I’d have to save money, get rid of all my stuff, figure out where I was going to go, and how I was going to do it. But I was determined.

I started saving every penny I could, and I got rid of everything I owned that I didn’t need. It was a lot of work, but it was all worth it when I finally took that first step and booked my one-way ticket.

I left my job, my family, and my friends behind, and I set off into the unknown. I had no idea what was going to happen, but I knew I was going to have the time of my life.

And I did.

I traveled to so many amazing places and I met so many incredible people. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. I learned more about myself and the world around me than I ever could have imagined.

I’m not saying that quitting your job to travel the world is for everyone, but it was definitely the right decision for me. If you’re feeling lost or like something is missing in your life, I encourage you to consider doing the same. It just might be the best decision you ever make.
