It’s now been 11 days since I ended my long term backpacking trip and came back to my life in Southern California.
The euphoria of coming back from travel is waning as expected, and it’s being replaced by the looming mountain of reality and responsibility that lies ahead. My 6 month journey was just part 1 of a huge chapter of change in my life. Part 2 is where I have to build up the job that I want from scratch, because I had originally quit my job with 2 goals in mind: To do the kind of travel I always wanted, and to have the job I always wanted: which is to work for myself.
The first goal is done, and that one was by far the easiest of the two. Now comes the hard part.
