How I began my 2.5 years of independent travel
It all started with a six month severance that I was happy to have. I only planned on being gone for a couple of months. In my book, that was a pretty long time.
I had no idea that 2.5 years later I would look back with amazementat all the things I had done, the places I had seen and the incredible freinds I made!
But that exactly what I did. If anyone would have told me that I would give up a Senior Vice President position, grab a backpack and start traveling the world I would have said they were nuts!
Anyway, that's pretty much what happened. Yeah, I came back to the U.S. every now and then for a couple of weeks but then I would be gone for months at a time before I would get the chance to swing through San Francisco and say hello to my friends.
It a fantastic time, and I wouldn't trade that experience for anything in the world. It changed me as a human being and brought me closer the the things I value most in life.
