I think people lose sight of dreaming and travel seems to require dreaming.

As a family we travel OS once a year and travel interstate twice a year between working to pay for our trips and our children attend school.
I believe that travelling the world with my children has been a fantastic education for them.
I agree with Charles K 100%. There are many ways to travel on a budget or go on a working holiday and still have a fantastic experience that will bring joy through memories long after you have returned.

We left good paying jobs when we first got together to travel for years at a time and the money it cost us to live was a fraction of the money we lost in potential income. That being said, time may be as costly as expenses however it’s also worth a lot more to us.

As far as we’re concerned, the more time we spend following our passions the better. Of course, everyone needs to eat so to each their own. There are ways to travel for cheap (working while you travel, volunteering for food and lodging, etc.) so it can be done regardless of how much or how little a person makes.

You also never know what tomorrow may bring and you might land a job making double or triple what you’re currently earning and think life is grand. Now instead of thinking how can I afford to travel you’ll be thinking how can I leave this sweet job? Your time will now be 2 or 3 times more costly than what it was. Times that thought by 40 years and you’ll never see what the world has to offer. It happens all too often.

All I have to say is life is short and take what enjoyment you can from it. If travel appeals to you, make it happen!

I make $9 an hour at my job. I took several days off this week because a friend was visiting, and now I get to worry about incurring more credit card debt from the lost wages. Time is just as costly as expenses.

I did it not to regret anything in my life. I felt like it was the right moment to think of myself and do what I always wanted to do!
