Become a Nomad

Are you bored of living in the same place, seeing the same places and faces day in day out? Have you had enough of paying extortionate rents and don't fancy taking on mountains of mortgage debt? Would you like to leave your job and go travel the world? Or are you retired and dream of selling your house to go travelling?

If yes, what's stopping you? A mortgage? Kids? Fear of not being able to get another job and having no income? Ask yourself, if you really want to leave your job but are too scared of the consequences, are you really anything other than a slave? Are you free in any meaningful way to live your life the way you want?

Becoming a nomad inevitably means taking a leap into the unknown. But staying in the same place has unquantifiable risks too. It also has a very certain risk: wishing you'd done something different with your life. If you're not happy with your life it won't change itself for the better. You have to make the change. And remember, fortune favours the brave.

There is nothing that says you have to be a nomad forever. If you're frightened of a gap in your CV simply say you wanted to do some travelling. You will probably find many employers look on it positively, seeing you as a more interesting person.
