I think that’s a myth. Quit your day job and travel the world for the rest of your life. It sounds great. But I think it preys on those who are dissatisfied with their jobs and tricks people into thinking that a life abroad is always better. Aka the grass is greener on the other side. I don’t think it is better. Nor do I think it’s greener. I think what people want is not to travel indefinitely and go to every country in the world. I think what people want is to know that if they wanted to travel abroad, they could. It would be within their realm of possibility. I think what people want is to know that it is within their power to live a life that brings them joy, not necessarily escaping overseas to a so-called “better life”.
world travel is not the answer to all of life's problems - nor is it the only way to get ahead in life
