    I could agree with everyone here, but I also think that we're free to shape our lifestyles as we want to. I am biased because I am a digital nomad for the last 5 years and I've been listening to people telling me all sorts of excuses about why they can't do it. Being able to travel all the time is a hard work, and such hard work and living constantly on the outside of your comfort zone may not be for everyone. And I respect their decision. I do feel though that we're constantly underestimating the opportunities and constantly overestimating the obstacles. That's my 5 cents on the topic ;) Happy travels!

    How's this for an answer: travel stops me from traveling. For the past two years, I've had a job which is 100% travel. Two weeks ago I had a long weekend planned in a new city between work and more work the next week. I blew it off (as in 'did not even get on the plane and instead drove home') so that I could be HOME for two days that month.

    Just a something to think about for those of you who think it would be cool to have a job that requires travel. Be careful what you wish for, indeed!

      I want to ask what was your prospective about your job when you first took it up? I can only guess, you might be feeling lucky at that point. · (0 likelikes)

      varun g--of course I felt lucky. I still do! I'm just really tired sometimes. And miss home. Life--it's all about balance. · (0 likelikes)

    Mostly work constraints. Have to work, or no/limited travel. I'm fortunate that my work is seasonal, so I work my tail off for 6ish months and the rest of time is free for me. It makes if easy to do this when I know the next adventure isn't too far away.

    I started traveling 26 years ago and these days I keep going 365 days a year and work along the road as a tour leader and travel consultant.

    See no reason to stop so I have no excuses to give myself.

      I hear you! I hate flying economy too but I'd rather spend my precious $$ on the ground than at the pointy end of planes. Anyone want to give me an upgrade? Anyone?? ;-) · (1 likelikes)
