hello everyone, this is my first post and was wondering if i could get some advice from travellers.
i'm Karl, nearly 30 from the UK and i'm unemployed. for the past few years i have wanted to travel it's all i think about. i have never travelled outside of the UK before but i just wanna see the whole world.
my plan (has been) to get a job which i haven't had since i left uni 5 years ago. i'm not hugely fussy about the job but i don't want a job i would hate. retail, admin or call centre operative is what i'm looking for. I will work for 5 years and try to save as much as possible, i was thinking £20,000 (i live at home and don't have a car or anything) i have less then £1000 debt exc student loans but only have to pay that back when i earn a lot more money then i expect to be paid before the travel happens so could save more then a lot of people.
i would go to college at night doing photography/writing classes. so when i do go travelling i could start a website, take a year to build up and hopefully become a professional blogger earning money.
i know it will be hard work but it's been my dream for a few years, i create documents/folders for all the countries i wanna visit with attractions and what i'd like to do. so basically all i'm after is as many opinions as possible as whether this could be done or whether maybe i'm too old now or whether this sounds like a good idea. just any advice basically. thanks in advance.
