I Want To Travel, ButI'm Afraid It'll Ruin My Future
16 May 2016 | Mri Grout - A Lifelong Vagabond
I hear this a lot, especially from people aged 17 – 25 who are now fully expected to enter the 'real world' of bills, work, and a monetary definition of success. They dream of falling in love with a foreign accent, of petting the wild kangaroos of Pebbly Beach, of learning to fly and sail to all ends of the earth or maybe just a corner, but as they are repeatedly told they must apply for universities and well-paying positions, their dreams slowly die – only to resurface as regret years on down the line.However, it doesn't have to be that way. You're young with your whole life ahead of you and travelling for a gap year does not ruin your future. If anything, it betters it.

What you learned in your home town or country is just the tip of all the knowledge out there. Travelling the world introduces you to a great deal of the rest of it and not just in historical, geographical, economical or political areas. You also learn to see things, even ancient thoughts and traditions, from other angles and viewpoints that you never knew existed. And when you are aware of more opinions, more facts, and more options, then your horizons will grow way past what the eye can see, benefiting you in everyday life as well as the workforce.

That they are 100% sure that they won't just quit when the work gets busy and stressful since they've already been there and done that?
