But, I'm retired (still in good shape mentally and physically) and kept my most important things in a small storage. Life is so simple without all the stuff and extra clutter. Living any other way makes you a slave to your stuff. No matter what you have you have to take care of it which means taking away your precious time for an animated object.

I have never had that kind of money to spend in my whole life and insurance companies would only cover the treatment and broken equipment at best. Reply ARTURO SIERRA January 10, 2018 this man need to go today to Caracas Reply Bradley Richardson January 16, 2018 Really enjoyed this! Keep it cominggg! 😁😁 Reply neverlostforwords January 20, 2018 Aircraft emissions are very damaging to the environment and human health. Please contribute to the Wikipedia article on sustainable tourism and make sure it highlights the awful air pollution caused by aviation emissions. We need packages that don't involve long (or any) air travel. When I was a child we travelled on holidays locally and had wonderful holidays meeting other people and enjoying nature. Why do people have to travel overseas (with plane travel) as a badge of honour and thus pollute the air and the environment, and harm human health? Reply Steven Grindey January 25, 2018 i love going to new places and ive learnt from skateboarding you learn more going to new places, my moto is new places create new spaces Reply Kosova Alb trucking January 31, 2018 Albania the friendliest country in the world:) Reply Amadis de Gaula February 28, 2018 I didn't have a lot of money and I have done 70 countries and lived in 9. One doesn't need a lot of money to travel. One needs a plan. Have many connections. And have skills to sell. The world exposes itself to us and we learn to go go go. I don't regret my life. Do I have many world possessions? No! But I have hundreds of friends in 7 continents and I speak several languages. Reply Angelique kimz March 1, 2018 Amazing talk😄👌🏼 thank you🤗 Reply Madolite March 12, 2018 He used to sit at home wishing he'd travel, but then he took an "arrow" in the knee. 😉 Reply Truth Exposed March 18, 2018 Travelling shows gender inequality….

Reply Orthodox 1 1 April 26, 2018 BOREING Reply Kirill Kich May 1, 2018 When you travel make sure to open your mind and heart for adventures. Do unexpected decisions, explore unusual paths that you wouldn’t try in the comfort zones and most importantly: talk to strangers, make new friends and ask questions. Your memories, stories and experience found during those days form the body of your life. Reply Check In Vietnam Travel May 7, 2018 Great. Pleased to meet people. You are welcome to visit Vietnam ..

Reply Chiara Rdn August 29, 2018 If you had come to the Central African Republic, you getting yourself robbed would have been the best case scenario. There are places in this world where being a traveler, especially a Caucasian one, almost equals having a death wish. CAR is one of those. Reply shrawan kumar September 2, 2018 How do you get visa from so many countries. Of course we have to pay for visas' and accommodation. How do you manage these things Reply Rebeca Evanjalin s.i September 13, 2018 Superb Reply Jeffrey Morton September 19, 2018 As an American who has lived in the Philippines for 17 years, I think generally, American tourists do not want to "experience" other cultures as much as to find validation of what makes their own "better" (or "the best"). Similarly, most Americans think their individual opinion is correct & usually won't consider alternatives. This inevitably leads to the locals wishing they would just go back where they came from as quickly as possible… Reply Alaiddin Emre Özyurt October 1, 2018 Trust your gut.I always did especially in terms of travelling and I was always right people xD Reply Isabel Lima October 1, 2018 Alguém traduz pra mim, socorroo Reply Terrance L October 20, 2018 It is very safe to travel, only because you had safe journeys???

What is a South African boytjie doing in Canada? 🙂 Reply Muriel LEBEAU February 25, 2019 I don't know you much, but i love you already! Thank you for this great talk! Reply Duncan Chui February 26, 2019 if people travel more, this world will have less conflicts and wars…. the reason why we fight is because we don't understand each other… Reply PrecisionTreck March 11, 2019 If you don't want your money and stuff stolen from you, don't go into the towns in Cabo Mexico, I had more than $3,000 stolen from me, and some expensive stuff. Those Mexicans see white people as targets, no question about it. Reply Dario George March 19, 2019 if you are an introvert, you are pretty much screwed Reply Lee Me March 24, 2019 A solo traveler, been to 38 countries around the world and Albanians are still the most friendliest and heartwarming people Ive met in my life. Reply VANquished Dude April 8, 2019 Not sure why so many women are worried about travel. Hands down the worst humans I have ever met in my life were women…….bottom line, avoid women and you'll instantly be safer.

Reply Robert Duenas June 6, 2019 A good tip for traveling with no money if you need food and a place to stay, go to the Jehovahs Witness church in any country on Sundays and they are so loving and kind. One of them will offer you shelter Reply Breezie Lynn June 30, 2019 Americans don't travel enough. We are taught to have the American Dream. That American Dream is killing us because we're stressed out thinking we have to have it all. Doing all this darn working for ungrateful people. We need to live our lives and travel more. I'm 56, downgrading my lifestyle so I can travel as often as possible. Reply Peter Tamura July 29, 2019 A great talk, thank you!
