I was reminiscing about my travel experiences, resisting the urge to grow my travel senses further, as this only begets for more adventures. Still have a desire to travel amidst the pandemic while taking all the precautions.
The reality is that the new and undiscovered brings me a sense of different, unexpected, unrealized thoughts, hopes, but most importantly happiness.
There are plenty of fresh places to see, but when faced with the milestones that can be achieved versus the rich experiences that can be had, I will certainly have a hard time choosing. I want the best of desires, accomplishments and adventure. I need this simultaneously to avoid feeling idle.
I am sure there will be a time where I’ll slow down, but the more I continue, the need grows rather than diminish. So what drives me? Adventures? Travel? Accomplishments? Challenges? A combination of all?
The journey spurred through land, sea, and air are captivating decades of memories – Sean Abraham
Total disregard for a mediocre career. The notion to land travel jobs and commit to ever-changing contracts has been a series of my past 7 years of my life.
1. Optimizing Current Situation Matters
The job you choose will determine the amount of travel you can do in a given year. Some may have read the book 4-hour workweek by Tim Ferriss and understand that remote work can be a path to long term freedom to travel. Reading the book can give you the knowledge that can change the way of thinking will help start a pattern geared towards attaining the desire to be rich in time.
2. Earning Abroad Through Work
Options to attain work abroad can be daunting but if you do your homework and finish the assignment completely through navigating the hurdles of relocation the options are limitless. The option you may choose may even improve your current situation. Some may move to a slower-paced life to avoid the stresses of life and some may move to the bustling city life to tame the need for a fast-paced life. The third option could be something in between to get the best of both worlds.
The majority of people feel more confident when they know that there is a support system that can support your travels or relocation needs. Such groups can be great either through paid organizations or joining a network through social media. The outcome may be a bit slower but once the process is started the trend can continue as many professionals choose to relocate from country to country where the work is in demand.
4. Friends & Family
Connecting through friends and family might be the easiest way of supporting your travel and relocation. This option is widely used for many variations. They can help you navigate the new place. Assist in finding a place to stay, work and possibly help each other. Friends and family provide versatility and help you dawdle into finding your way to your new-found home.
5. Travel Jobs
Take on a travel job without having to relocate. These jobs can be lucrative if the right amount of research gets placed. As many young individuals may have applied to be flight attendants, seafarers, TEFL teachers, Scuba Diving Instructors, and other tourism and adventure-related occupations. These can be great with some previous background in tourism or just the right amount of research.

You have pushed forward today, the forces of your surroundings applaud you – Sean Abraham
Looking into the dreams you have for your life as far as relationships, income, travel, career, and material possessions.
Countless of lost souls trying to figure out their life purpose and have been given so many options that get overlooked. There are days we realize that the path we once chose is no longer the path we would like to continue on.
That leads to yet another change. Some dread the change so become complacent. Some fight their inner calling and follow a different path, to find that fulfilment that eventually will spark that satisfaction level in life. The point of happiness and self-worth.
We believe and make a goal to the next big thing like graduating from law school so that we can have a family, which having a family is the END GOAL and does necessarily require you to have a degree unless your goals in life are to become a lawyer and serve that purpose.
Some people have convinced themselves that pursuing a certain career path will get them closer to the END GOAL.
Experiences that contribute to the end goal can be things like people always talk about but never acted on it.
These can be;
Travelling until you are tired and want to go home for a bit.
Looking at that clear beach in the Bahamas for days, possibly with that special someone.
Taking amazing pictures of the world’s famous architectures.
Spending time with loved ones
Trying out real cuisine from Asia, Europe, and Mexico.
Getting lost in the Amazon just for the fun and adventure.
Explore the deep sea or jump from an airplane (just don’t do both on the same day)
Swim with the sharks, dolphins, stingrays so on.
Volunteer to your favourite cause; saving baby turtles
Cross country driving with your best friends
Getting married & holding your first baby
Making that move into the unknown because you crave change or love someone
Teaching in another country just because of the thought of the new experience abroad.
The above does look like a bucket list but can also be part of your journey in life with your list in mind if you clear the path for yourself with a defined goal with the end goal in mind.
