So true OP.
Travelling to other countries has totally opened my eyes and made me realise many things.
First off is how places can be so different yet deep down (and not really even that deep) people are all the same.
Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Athiest and everything in between what almost everyone wants is to meet someone, have a family, give their kids a
better life than they had and generally just be happy.
Sorry but I dont buy the no time or money cop out, the only thing in my mind that could prevent someone who really wants to travel from doing so is
I got a job working in Malaysia and when my contract finished and I was sent home all I wanted to do was get back, I had no savings or prospects to
speak of but I was determined to make it happen.
I approached every company I could think of who could possibly benefit from doing something offshore but after 6 months got nowhere. I finally thought
stuff it and found a company who were looking for work from home telemarketers, I approached them and said I wanted the job but home was going to be
Malaysia, they had reservations but I told them it was exactly the same as working around the corner what with Skype and email nowadays. 2 years later
that telemarketing job has turned into a genuine career with the option to base myself anywhere in the world.
People, where there is a will there is a way, if you want something bad enough dont make excuses just make it happen!!!!
