Traveling around the World

Travel_around_the_world

Would you ever consider giving up your life here and travel around the world for an year?  My friend recently expressed his desire to travel around the world for an year.  To me that sounded like a crazy idea but some of my other friends thought it’s so cool.  I think I would feel comfortable about the idea if I had a stable income while traveling and a guaranteed job security when I come back or if I had hefty amount of money in my bank account.  Perhaps I am too comfortable in my life in America that the thought of leaving this safety bubble is just daunting without any security.

Ever since I had this talk with my friend it’s been lingering in my head… If I ever traveled the world for an year, would I survive? Would I be able to adjust back to my “normal” life in the states?  What’s your thought on traveling for an year?
