For the past 10 years I've wanted to travel but when all my friends were out there doing it I was following the career path and doing the mortgage thing, but now I've got rid of the mortgage and quit my job. It's now time to move on to dream number 2, See the World!!!

I can't wait to take off and see where I end up.
