To Go or Not To Go

10 reasons not to go
  1. Fear
  2. sacrificing a promising global career and the opportunity to work all around the world (hey we’re travelling already, just in a “posh” way)
  3. The $$$ that we can be earning and saving
  4. leaving the comfort of a spacious home & security of a job
  5. catching dengue fever on the road and being admitted into a 3rd world hospital with no knowledge of the local language

  8. getting mobbed and having camera and laptop stolen, ie losing all my photography
  9. can’t practice guitar
  10. uncertainty – not knowing what will happen and how this decision will impact life forever
10 reasons to go
  1. adventure
  2. a taste of true freedom before it all goes away
  3. see the world with our own eyes
  4. regret not the things we do but the things we didn’t do
  5. we only live once & you never know when it’s time to go (fact is, that time will come)
  6. staying true to the roots
  7. havin the balls to pursue dreams, happiness, and things with a bigger meaning
