    Love it. Indefinite really is something that boggles most of the minds. I think you hit the nail on the head with anything longer than 2 weeks confuses people.

    Having drank with a lot of tourists from Europe and Australia, when they go on holiday, sometimes they go for 3-4 months, its just crazy.

    Couldn’t agree more. The whole point of creating this lifestyle is so you don’t have to plan. Just go! Explore. All the best to you guys!

    I love your view on this because I have learned its so much easier to not plan than it is to plan. I am so happy for you… you are about to hit the road with your son (that is fucking awesome).

    I hope we can meet up in Mexico that would be so awesome!!!

    This is the kind of thinking I am trying to get in to. All I know is my indefinite plan starts somewhere around October/November time and the rest is just me shrugging my shoulders as if to say: “Dunno, we’ll see what happens.”

      That is really part of the fun. And surprisingly less stressful. Serious
      freedom!

    You have so much freedom when you don’t plan – lots of people were confused that I only bought a one way ticket, but if I’d bought a RTW flight, I wouldn’t have been able to chop and change my plans the way I did. I flew to Egypt at the last minute, spent Christmas in the UK instead of India…planning not to plan is a great idea, especially when you’re going to travel for so long 🙂

      That’s exactly why I didn’t go the RTW ticket route.

    I have been traveling the world for nearly 20 years – ok some work stops in between. Being German I met my American husband 7 years ago in Spain and now try to settle in Virginia USA. I do not regret a minute and whilst I didnt pile financial wealth. My bag is full with the treasures of the road.

    Indeed. I call it “Drift Traveling” ‘cuz it’s all about drifting along where the winds may take you. As for me and my “planned” exodus to move to Southeast Asia by year’s end, I’m doing tons of “prep” right now (i.e. to get all my legal ducks in a row come what may, selling most everything, setting up a vagrant snail mail service, etc. But as far as what/where I’ll be a year from now… Ah, that’s all still in delicious flux!

    It is very unusual not doing a whole lot of planning – we’re going through the same thing at the moment! We know roughly what we want to do and the route we want to take, but you gotta be totally flexible right?

    Good luck with the adventures, can’t believe the departure date is nearly here! 🙂

      Flexibility is absolutely key as far as I’m concerned. There are many experiences I would’ve missed out on during my travels if I hadn’t been flexibility and created space for spontaneity.

      I can’t believe it either! Today is my last day of work. Feels so surreal.
