Man Quits Job to Travel the World


There’s really nothing like traveling, and I’m sure most of you will agree. It’s an incomparable experience with boundless opportunities to immerse yourself in exotic sights, smells, and tastes, gaze upon breathtaking scenery, mingle with locals, and relish in a bit chaos and uncertainty, all while making memories that will last you a life time.

Most have lists upon lists of places where they’re just yearning to travel to, pining and mock planning for that dream vacation or two. Eventually, between all those exacting life responsibilities, you may scrounge up some funds and a week or so of vacation time to visit a place or two you’ve been longing to see.

But that quick blip of travel, while still likely an enjoyable and fantastic experience, can leave many itching for more. Travel seems to be something of an unrequited love for most, a hunger that just can’t be satisfied.

I mean, who doesn’t want to see the world in all its entirety, from the towering icebergs of the artic down to the glorious Argentinian waterfalls. Just think of how amazing it would be to quit your day job, pack up your bags, and travel to a far off place while leaving the world as you know it far behind.

But that’s easier said than done, and, while they may dream of it, most will never make that leap. There’s a little something called reality that makes a traveling adventure into the unknown difficult to achieve.

However, a man named Raf Horemans did take that leap. He successfully accomplished what most people only dream of doing. Several months ago, he made the decision to quit his job, pack up his things, and travel the world – just like that.

While this may be just mere smattering of his many pictures, Horemans has his own travel blog that’s just full of all his astounding photographs. Be warned though, it’s easy to lose track of time as you gaze from one picture to the next, soaking in some of that seemingly other-worldly beauty.
