Travel has recently been one of the biggest requirements of my life, and this video hits the nail on the head. After saving up for a couple years, Walter Chang quit his job and traveled the world for three years and made it to 60 countries. In his written reflection he says,
“After college I took two completely different routes. One, working at a job I was unhappy with that hurt my confidence in pursuing a meaningful career of my choice. The other, venturing across the world, which restored that confidence. In the end, both were unsustainable. Now that I’m out of travel mode I’m not sure of the next step. But with these experiences under my belt I think I’m better prepared to handle what lies ahead.”
It’s funny because the first real international trip I ever took set the stage for the person I am today. It instilled a sense of adventure, confidence, exploration, and wonder that I still carry. Loved this piece!
