Dear Dad, I've Quit My Job to Travel the WorldTuesday, February 01, 2011
This may no longer come as a shock to you and the family. But I have made yet another big decision that will change my life.
I have decided to quit my job to travel the world.
Most people have hobbies. Travelers have lives. I have stopped seeing travel as a once a month, do-it-on-the-weekend kind of thing. It's no longer just a welcome distraction or a pleasant break from reality. Travel has slowly taken over my life. It is my life.
I have reached a point in which travel is constantly on my mind. From the books I read, the movies I watch and the blogs I follow. It's all about travel. I'm forever planning my next destination and scheming for the next escape.
So I've come up with a plan: To travel for almost 6 months starting in India. Then we're going all over Southeast Asia. Okay so that doesn't really seem like traveling the world. More like traveling Asia. But from there, the possibilities are limitless!
You must have confirmed your nagging suspicion that I've been switched after childbirth. I know exactly what you're gonna say:
Anak, allergic ka ba talaga sa trabaho?
Are you allergic to keeping a job?
What about having a career and starting a family? Don't you have any concern for your future? What if something happens to you?
This is what I believe: Don't be afraid that something happens to you. Be afraid that nothing happens to you.
|No snickering please!|
But I hope you would love me enough to let me go.
