Thinking of Quitting Your Job and Traveling for a Year? Yes, It's Worth It.

April 10, 2011

If I ever get bummed that I quit my stable job to travel, but I really miss my stuff, my apartment and my lovely Mac (why am I *still!* so materialistic??), then I'm going to look at this photo of me literally laying my scarf down so I could take a nap in the mountains near Quito.

From Quito, Equador
Ah yes. Beautiful freedom.

I guess it's ok that I don't have my blowdryer and velcro-rollers after all.

P.S. If you're thinking about your own fabulous/crazy/life-changing adventure, too-- then take my advice: There will always be a job, there will always be someplace to stash your belongings crap and this is the only life you've got. So go and write the best damn story you can. There's no way you'll regret it.


  1. Just stumbled across your blog (via La Petite Fashionista), and absolutely love it. Your post comes at a time when I'm craving transition and change. I need your attitude! =)

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, Vanessa! I was getting that craving for change, too, and had to take it when my chance came!! xoxojess
