A World Journey is something we never thought about. Until our travels became more adventurous, and longer. And we still didn’t want to go home after 5 weeks of traveling. On our vacation in Africa we first met long-time travelers. And over time, we started thinking, can we do that as well?
And then, we started investigating. What about our house? Who will pay the mortgage? And our jobs, do we loose them? What will it cost, and can we save such an amount of money? Finally, we gave ourselves a deadline to make a decision.
Once we made the decision, the preparation started. We took one and a half year to save money, plan our finances, take care of the insurance, and figure out everything that has to do with what we leave behind, the homefront. Then we had to think about our health, what pills and vacins to take. And last, but not least, what will be our itinerary?
Preparation is all about gathering information, preferably from other travellers. But in the end, you will have to figure out for yourself which are helpful tips and which are not.
