When I say I want to travel, I don’t mean I want to stay at resorts and go on tours with tour guides or buy key chains from souvenir shops.
I don’t want to be a tourist.
When I say I want to travel, I mean I want to explore another country and become part of it for 2-3 weeks.
I want to discover small coffee/baguette shops in France, churrerias in Spain, Pasta/Pizza in Italy and much more beyond.
I want to walk on beaches in Australia and browse the old book stores of London & Manchester.
I want to hike the great wall of china and go cliff diving in Hawaii.
I want to meet people who are not like me, but people who I can like all the same.
I want to take pictures of things and places and people I meet, not stupid selfies for Instagram.
I want my mind to be in constant awe of life on earth.
I want to see things with new eyes & an open mind.
I want to look at a map and be able to remember how I was transformed by the places I’ve been to, the things I’ve seen, and the people I’ve met.
I want to come home and realize that I have not come home whole, but have left a piece of my heart in each place I have been.
This, I think, is what is at the heart of adventure and this is why I plan on making my life one.
Basically i will retire in my 30s while i am still a PhD research scholar/student & all these are my retirement plans.
Everyone is entering relationship, getting engaged or married or pregnant, then entering depression or their 5-month validity of joy.
Meanwhile me & my bestfriend just wanna look fleek, stay single and travel, while building an automotive blog, selling atheleisure clothing & whey protein supplements online.
Travel because you don’t remember years, you remember memories/moments.

I see your self manifestation here, “retire in my 30’s.” 🙂
Thanks Bridgette. I am my own boss & my employee since past 4 years. Appreciated.👍
I cannot recommend travel too highly and you have the right attitude for it . I have travelled many countries in the world, on my own , with my husband and we also did A 6 month trek in Australia and a month in Kenya plus several European ( France , Italy, England) with our two kids. They were terrific travelers.
Thanks Anne. I am yet to reach my 30. Till now most of my trips are related to work, but i plan them in such a way that i get the weekend for myself in a new city. Most of the time my bestfriend joins me as my +1. I am not sure about marriage till now, but i am definitely excited to have kids soon. Appreciated.👍
Our son travels a lot for work and also takes time on weekends to explore! Your plans sound good Tap!
Thanks Anne. Hope you & your son are having a great time.👍
Travel is about the memories made, not the countries checked off on a list. We have made many memories and it looks like you will too. Allan
Thanks Allan. I think i just love the feeling of boarding a flight. Or even long roadtrips excite me. Appreciated.👍
