Hello.. My name is Jeff and I have decided to drop my 9-5 job, take a chance on myself and embark on an adventure that will take me across the oceans, breaking new ground and immersing myself in foreign cultures.
My Diary To Quit My Job and Travel Abroad
Traveling abroad admittedly was never a life long dream that was always with me. It was a dream that was lying dormant in the back of my mind because it have never been awakened before. This was before my “mid life crisis” and decided to take a trip to Asia (Philippines to be specific). My 30 day “vacation” soon became so much more.. I didn’t want to leave and right then and there I decided I wanted to learn how to become an expat and live abroad.
Solo travel saved my life on many levels. I was searching for something, and I found it within myself. Note : That is me in the upper photo on Siquior Island, In the Philippines. If I had gone on a vacation with a group, a significant other, or a friend I don’t think that I would have experienced the life changing moments.. The “Epiphany’s” I encountered along the way. Regardless of whether you find yourself when your standing on top of condo in the middle of Metro Manila, or from one of the many secluded islands of SE Asia, you will begin to view yourself in a different light.
You encounter many obstacles on your adventures and it’s up to you to get through them… You become your best friend and you learn to count on yourself. This is when you grow mentally and spiritually. This is when you find yourself and your outlook on life changes.
Is travel blogging the right time for you? When is the right time for travel? All I know is that I have developed the Travel Bug and depression seems to set in if I’m staying at home for too long. I love to spend time at my “real” home (where I pay a mortgage) but I always daydream about the next adventures that await me around the next corner. We have one chance to live life, so let’s live it right? So, I have decided to dream about what inspires me, and will follow my passion from this day forward. Onwards and upwards!
I hope you take the time to learn more about me and travel along for the ride. My blog (maybe diary is the better word) talks about my past adventures as well as the future journeys that lie ahead. Here are some of the most popular ones where you can follow me at :
