Now that you’ve turned in your resignation letter, it is time to get started planning your world trip.  And make sure to ditch those stupid roller bags and get on board with minimalist packing (pun intended).

The number one question we are asked is how we afford to travel full time.  No, we don’t work along the way and we haven’t liquidated our retirement accounts.  The answer to preparing for long term travel is easy and you can do it to.
