In short, we are doing this because we believe that we should fully enjoy the time we have been given here on earth. There is far to much to learn and far too much to see to stay in one corner of the world! We know we are trading the traditional trappings of security and stability but in the long run we believe that a sense of comfort with the world and our part in it will be more beneficial to us than a retirement fund and a house. We do not begrudge anyone their own versions of a happy and content life…. this is just what ours looks like!
