Maybe like what she said: control your life.

I think it's pathetic to be a slave of money.

she said she is too young

always there are the right time for pleasure and special vacations

but

most of young people should think to build a future first

pleasure it will come at right time

but to leave a job for a long travel, its nonsenses question

Envy you . You travel around the world for work?

I did. But often not to the parts of the world you'd want to visit for a holiday.

I disqualify myself from answering your question as I was paid to travel the world.

Lucky you. I have to pay over $6,000 to volunteer in West Africa starting this month, but I feel it will be completely worth it.

The world you want to go that you can plan to travel one by one in holidays.
Beacuse you are young.
Please do not misunderstand:whitebear said"good prepared"

Incredible to quit a job to travel the world.

Col - no luck in it. I worked my backside off in a highly competitive industry. I've also paid a high price, forsaking family and children etc to do what I do.

Who are you Volunteering with? A Church perhaps?

I can imagine a lot sacrifice would be necessary for a job like that, but from my point-of-view it sounds very fulfilling. What exactly were you doing?

Right now I'm helping the Nova Scotia-Gambia Association. It's an amazing organization. They mostly do work around HIV/AIDS, malaria, women's rights, clean water and landmine awareness in The Gambia and until recently, Sierra Leone.

I keep my work out of the forum as much as possible. Let's just say that it involved a lot of contact with very nasty people up close and personal and a lot of truly hair raising deadly situations where if I put one foot wrong I was dead. Some of the things I have seen and witnessed would leave most people crying for their mothers or reaching for a gun or overdose of pills.

Have you been to Africa before? How long will  you be there for?
