I loved the website. I developed the travel bug after 5 months in Europe in 2002 and now at age 22, i'm already starting to feel like i cant possibly sit at a desk for the rest of my life and be happy. just wanted to say your stories gave me confidence that i can actually get away for an open-ended trip (a plan ive been workin on) and figure out what it is i'd like to do with my life. thanks for the excellent writing, but more importantly, thanks for the inspiration.

Hey, no problem - I love sharing my experiences, and if they can help others, that's great. It can be pretty daunting leaving the rat race for the uncertainty of the road, but I rarely meet anyone who didn't think it was worth it.
My advice is always to go for it: the worst that can happen is that you come back home with an increased appreciation of home, and the best that can happen is that it changes your life. Neither of which seem like a bad thing...
Best of luck in your travels, and I'm honoured to be an inspiration. Thanks for posting.
