|YQ answers your travel questions is part of the #YourBigBreak campaign. Send in your travel questions about quitting your job to travel and YQ will answer them in a video.|
Today’s question is from Rachel. She wrote an e-mail with the subject
How did you find the courage to quit your job and travel?
There’s two parts to the question:
- How did you find courage to quit your job?
- How did you find courage to travel around the world?
In the video, I share how I wasn’t a travel expert in the beginning. In fact, I was a crybaby and was homesick for a very long time. I decided one day that I would stop crying about home. And I did.
But I didn’t start travelling after that. I was fearful of travelling because of the misconceptions that travelling as a solo woman is dangerous. I got over it when I found my travel role model Nguyen.
So my advice for those who want to travel around the world:
- Find a travel role model
- Travel lots
