In 2010 I quit my job and traveled for three years. A lot of people wonder how I afforded to travel for an extended period. This article I wrote for And Then We Saved might shed some light. The truth is I traveled and lived very inexpensively. I stayed with my parents. I took up odd jobs when I could. I bartended, waitressed, worked online for my old company, and traveled throughout the USA working for a meter/utility company...roadtrippin' it with my roommate Summer of Hobo Siren. You can read about those adventures by clicking on "Serco". I have been to all 50 States.
These days I've got myself a cozy little job at my old company with lots of vacation time. I splurge on good food, good alcohol and new clothes.
