I Quit My Corporate Job in NYC to Travel the World

Hello, my name is Kesi! I am an Ivy Grad (Wharton, #UPennUKnow) and in 2015 I decided to quit my finance job in NYC to travel the world. I did not impulsively quit, but planned and saved money for two years, with the idea of following the summer (your girl loves bikini’s!) for a year. Somehow my 1-year career break has turned into 4 years and counting. I’ve adapted to a nomadic lifestyle and have no plans to stop. I have learned the ins and outs of sustaining longterm travel and would love to inspire others to take a career break. I am still traveling because I’m addicted to meeting new people and immersing myself in the local culture. Let’s check off some bucket list items together!

How I Became a Full-Time Traveller

It is crazy to think that I have been full time traveling longer than I’ve ever had a full-time job?! The saying “Time flies when you are having fun” is entirely accurate. I never had the intention of becoming a full-time traveler, but I have learned how to create a temporary sustainable lifestyle as a backpacker. I say temporary, because eventually I know I will grow tired of all my budget saving ways, but for the time being my wanderlust and desire to travel outweighs my preference for comfort and stability. Long term travel takes discipline and requires knowing how to save money.  I do not live a life of luxury, but I live a life wealthy in experiences.
