Traveling 9 to 5 was born from two people with a huge curiosity about what is outside our country’s borders. We live in a westernized world with very deep beliefs in the “American Dream.” Chasing after that dream can be exhausting and possibly un-fulfilling if reached in the end. A big decision we have made is to put aside climbing the ladder—to step out of the rat race—and jump head first into a life that is unknown to us.
We have been budgeting, planning and researching daily while our anticipation grows. We are now just 7 months out and are looking forward to continuing to blog about our experiences, thoughts and future plans. We hope to inspire other people to take action on their travel dreams and meet plenty of interesting people along the way!
Join us as we begin to understand one country at a time, taking part in local customs, eating new cuisines and talking with locals.
