So… one day during lunch time at work in 2009, I mentioned that I’d give myself two years to prepare to quit my job and travel around the world. My friends told me that was bullshit and that come the day, I would still be on the same table, probably the very same seat, eating lunch with them.

Fast forward to 2011, I just put in my job resignation today and am all eager and ready (well, not entirely) to carry out my grand escapade and prove them wrong. HA! Take that! Hehe.

Well, on a more serious note, I simply have this wanderlust to go see the world.
That’s all there is to it.

Am I scared? Very much so.
Will I fail miserably in my grand scheme and return home way prematurely and get laughed at? Well, there’s a chance.
Will I regret making the attempt? No :D
