This is my first blog entry, so I will start from explaining why I am doing this. It is going to be rather short and I will try to keep all of my notes this way. If you need more details, just ask. Enjoy reading.
What would you do if you were a millionaire? Most of us would certainly like to travel a bit, some even longer. Then, only few don’t need to be millionaires. In the end of the day, if you’re going to places, they will be the same whether you have money or not. The difference is that you wouldn’t be able to afford certain luxuries and people would be more honest to you if you’re not rich. Sadly, you most likely are not millionaire, and by the time you become one with your hard work, you may feel too old for this.
For this reason, rather than waiting for the time I could comfortably afford journey around the world, I have decided to quit my job in bank, throw away most of the stuff I own, stop planning for the future, sacrifice comforts of city life, and throw myself into unknown ocean of adventures. With backpack, tent and thumb up for cars passing by, I want to travel the world. I don’t know how long it will take or how far I will get, but I’m sure I won’t come back till I feel fulfilled and I’m satisfied with what I’ve experienced.
“In 20 years time you’ll regret things you have not done more than the ones you have”.
With all this in mind and few months of preparation, here I am, writing this very first note in a Manchester Airport’s lounge. In less than 2 hours I will set off in Ryanair plane to Katowice, Poland. From there, I have to go across the whole country. I am going to do this by hitchhiking, so it may take me some time. I am going to stay with my family in Poland for one month and leave on the 13th January 2012, but I will write more about it later.
More in the next blog entry.
