When is the best time to travel?

I want to go on a backpacking adventure. When is the best time to quit my job and travel the world?

  • Before you have kids
  • Liabilities (Mortgage etc) require more planning but can be resolved
  • When you’ve saved $5k+ (minimum)
    • Ignore what anyone tells you. Working whilst backpacking ISN’T backpacking. It’s working abroad
    • Save money and HAVE A BLAST
  • When you’re brave enough to book a flight (whilst still in work) X months in advance so you can save towards a tangible target
  • If/When you’re prepared to go alone
    • If you wait on others. You’ll be waiting a long time

These are key I’d say :slight_smile:
