Today was another day at work. Seems like a quiet day. Project Manager ain't running around shouting. Nobody seems rushing. Client wasn't around peeking on progress. My manager no where to be seen. Got a little bored and started stalking updated news feed on facebook. Usual day for a typical Gen-Y like me...
Something caught my attention. Someone posted a short comic, those that you can find in the daily newspaper. It goes something like this.
A : Hey B, how many hours you work a week?
B : Erm.. 64 hours.
C : You s**k. You need to work that hard just to keep your job?

Travelling is not about escaping from the life we had back there. To me it is about finding life. When you see life, you control work, not let work control life. Many people plan their life following the flow of work. You should at least go for vacation minimum twice a year. Local or overseas, does not matter.

When you are around at work, you are always important. People just can't have you leaving for more than a week. Everything will go wrong. COME ON, just leave, when you are not around, you are actually not that important. People just make you important, because people need someone to throw responsibility to.

Just like many people around the world, i started Travelling when i got the opportunity to study in the UK. Newcastle Upon Tyne. Working hard, earning cash for travel and living expenses. Working few part-time jobs while studying, going from Stadiums, to Ball Rooms, to Horse Races Events, to restaurants, to Bars, to Pubs. After my studies, working full-time jobs in restaurants from waiter to dish washer with additional on call part-time jobs.

Getting stagnant. I took a bigger step ahead. Now working global in Dubai (great excuse for more Travel). Although i travel a lot, looks like i spend a lot, but i do have few investments. Actually quite a lot for someone at my age. secret*. People do say, "i am a man with a plan". cough*

You work hard to get the life you want. Not work hard for to survive only.

If you are not convinced on the benefits of traveling, nothing probably will. Everyday in our life is a journey. So which way you are taking...
