My boyfriend and I sold 98% of our belongings so we could travel the world. We've been traveling for around 11 months so far and don't regret a minute of our decision. If you feel the pull, just go. Life's too short to wait for the perfect time to start living the life you dream of.

Wow! That sounds amazing! I'm going to do this after I graduate.

I'm happy to hear that! :)

Jealous!

It is better if you can visit philippines! Hey I am Filipina!!

Sounds amazing!!

This is really inspirational. Thats exactly what I want to do.

Great guys... I admire u both... f u guys r coming to asia, then do visit India.

I want the guts to do that, honestly.

Pretty much the only thing I'd love for right there

I felt scared, crazy, overwhelmed, stressed, and intimidated at times while we were trying to make this happen even though I knew it was what I wanted to do more than anything. If you set your mind to it, I'm sure you can do it, just take things one step at a time. :)

okay I love the idea of this

They're just song lyrics that reminded me of that x3 I think it's so cute you two did that. I hope you're having a great time. Good luck and safe travels to you both

Thank you very much! :)

Not a problem darling! Have fun ^^

How much did you have in the kitty when you started out?

Only about $6,000 USD, and 3k of that went to buying a new (used) car. But we travel slowly so it gives me enough time to make a little money so we can keep going. :)

You have chosen the path less traveled. May every day of your life be an adventure of discovery, of joy, of happiness and peace of mind, of learning and education, of respect for the time and opinions of other people, and may this entire experience gradually evolve you into a more humble and gentle human being. Your budget is an extremely modest one, however, as you earn while you burn fuel, nothing like it. At some point the car will give out on you, so look to trade up or buy an SUV. God bless.

Thank you for the kind and beautiful words! I take them to heart and appreciate them very much. <3

A million people would die to be where you are. But they are all tied down with the daily nitty gritties of life. Jobs, kids, car payments, home mortgages, bills and more bills, and the fear of the unknown. Even people with bank balances much more significant are hesitant to take the plunge. Will be following your travels, thats for sure. Hugs. J
