Leaving Melbourne for RTW Trip

What would make someone leave his comfortable life, quit his stable career, sell almost everything he owns and go on an unknown journey?

I don’t have all the answers, but one thing I’ve learnt is that we all have the same basic need to grow. Some of us prefer to stay in our comfort zone in order to get more certainty and stability. Others, me among them, prefer a little more discomfort and uncertainty at times to stimulate growth. And what is better than world travelling to break routines, shake identities, discover other ways of life, and experience new cultures.


A week ago I left Melbourne after 5 amazing years, a place I can now call home in all aspects of the word. I’ve been fortunate to meet the most wonderful people who made my life so much richer, who laughed with me when I was happy and who stood beside me when I was sad. I am thankful beyond measure to each one of them.

My first planned stop is Nepal, doing the Annapurna & Everest Base Camp treks. I will spend around a month in Nepal, after which I will travel through North India and the Himalaya. Then Israel for family reunion and some beach time. No specific itinerary after that. The vague plan is Europe, then South and Central America, but will let the universe lead the way.

A few days ago, sipping a drink from a coconut shell in Bangkok, dressed like a backpacker, life packed in two bags, it finally hit me all at once: total freedom, unlimited choices and life adventure.

Just gratitude, that’s ALL.

With love.
