‘Gohemian’ Definition: (n) ‘one who lives an unconventional life, (v) to go wild. (“she just couldn’t go back to her old life, so she went Gohemian”).’ – as coined by Cameron Tuttle, author of The Bad Girls Guide to The Road.

      This is the answer for my qeuotisn, Johny. Will it be respectable for me to stay in Jakarta, working as a lawyer in one-big-reputable firm and so on.. just like any other typical normal Indonesian adults would do. But here I am in Lima Peru, alone, looking for part time job and enjoying life even if it’s just meeting people and talk. Maybe I’m selfish, maybe my mom and my sister need me the most. But just like you’ve mentioned: I know for sure the people I care about would want me to live the life that brings me the most happiness And hell yeah, this is what happiness is make peace with your inner strength

      Hi Clare! I just decided that it was time to do it and so I worked very hard in a job I didn’t like, to save lots of money. Every payday was exciting because each time I got that little bit closer to my goal. I think if you REALLY, achingly want to do something, you have to just work hard and do it. Your happiness will thank you for it! 🙂 I hope you go to wherever you want, you deserve to! x

        Bit late on the weigh in, but doesnt slesifh swing both ways? Surely them expecting you to stay in one place for them would be slesifh on their part too? (Not that theyre asking you to but you know )I had a chat with my mum earlier tonight as i was contemplating going traveling and asked her what she did after uni (she’s a nurse). She finished training and went straight into work. That was 31years ago. She loves her job but would also like to win the lottery and go see the world.(I didnt waste my breathe explaining that she doesnt need to win the lottery lol). She’s has a great family/life/house etc but watching them leave for work at 8am and come home shattered at 6pm only to eat, watch the news, go to bed and do it all over again makes me realise how much I dont want that life. There are enough office workers and people with mortgages out there and just like jobs/chasing money/raising a family makes most people happy, traveling it what makes you happy. Goodbyes are always gonna be hard and they miss you like im sure you miss them but people who love/know you always know when something brings you joy and thats what makes coping easier. Distance really does make the heart grow fonder. Thats what makes reunions that much more memorable, and the time you do spend together invaluable.Enjoy the travels and making memories. The guilt always take care of itself.x

    That’s the cool thing about consciously linvig your life you can choose what your priorities are at this point in time, and actively pursue them. We’ve been on the road full time for about the same amount of time you have. One of the benefits we’ve designed into our travels is being able to spend extended quality time with our families throughout the year. Previously, family time might have been limited to long weekends and/or holidays that we could afford to squeeze in around our careers that were mostly rushed and chaotic. Now, we can come into town and spend weeks because we can work from anywhere. We can share in the day-to-day with people we love, and not have it be rushed special time. We average about 2 months a year spent with specifically with family. Overall, I’d say our relationships and time with parents and siblings is better than before we became full time travelers. And, we feel our wanderlust is being sustainably fulfilled too. It’s all about finding the right balance.. for you.Cherie @Technomadia recently posted..

    I’m struggling with that very queiostn right now. The money we’re going to spend can be used for much greater purpose (helping animals, helping less fortunate people).And like you said, not to mention the burden we’re going to place on people who care about us (and we care for) they’re going to worry about our safety, our future, our well-being. It sucks thinking about it.I tend to say that yes, it’s a little bit on the selfish side but like you said, we only live once.Jill Jack and Jill Travel The World recently posted..
