Travel- Adventure- Experience-Discovery-Why ?
Very simply, you can get caught up in all things materialistic and forget what a very small world we live in. Different cultures, people, experiences are the fuel of life.
Despite having fruitful careers that fueled our passions, we were frustrated that we’d let our careers become our identities. Aidan and I sat in the old Mandarin Oriental Bar in Jakarta a few years ago , toying with the idea of taking a gap year.
Will this be damaging? What will people think? Mid life crises? Who cares! Several beers later we had maps out with possible destinations listed and now all was needed was a date.
Aidan is recovering from a serious illness reconfirming how fragile life is. This made us even more determined to finalize a date for the escape !
