That is what this post is all about… I’ve discovered I’m like a lot of other folks, who one day woke up from their 9-5 coma and realized there is a whole world out there. You could say I have taken the ‘Red Pill’, and now I am hooked by that obsessive Travel Bug. how will I free myself from the daily doldrums that bind so many of us? My journey has become a personal voyage of discovery.
This is very complicated, you see I have a family (two young children, wife, dog, etc…), There are lots of issues to work out, and I’m not sure how I will get there. Oh sure lots of folks will tell you – “it’s easy”, “there is nothing to stop you but you“, “Lots of family’s travel together, if they can do it, anyone can“. And for the most part, they are correct and I believe it to be a matter of priority and choice… hold on there what are you saying? Well, as we move forward on this journey, we have to figure out these priorities without compromising other responsibilities.
Perhaps it would have been more ideal had I been bitten earlier in life? there was a period of time in my history that I could have spent several years on the road and “gotten it out of my system”. Even though I think it never really gets out of your system. But that is neither here nor there, it is time to move forward and figure this out.
So Welcome to this quest, a pursuit to free a man from the cubicle, teach two children to explore the world, and somehow satisfy those travel demons that haunt him…
