After hitting the 30 milestone, I decided that I had one nagging dream I had yet to fulfill. I have always dreamed of traveling to the far corners of our planet. So I began saving and planning, and saving and planning some more. Once it was almost time to take off I told my friends and family my plans than began to liquidate my life! I sold or gave away most of my clothes and furniture. I got my whole life down to 3 suitcases and 4 boxes. These few precious items have been put in storage and now my life consists of living out of one backpack and lots and lots of couch surfing. I have never been happier!!
