When did you start your travels?: 
Why did you decide to drive?: 
Many expert travelers, who also happen to be expert bloggers — or the other way around — will readily share various advice on the topic of traveling. “Nomadic, journey, exotic, yearning, hamster wheel, new life” and other dramatic lexicon will extol the romantic side of giving up life in said wheel for a new one (life that is, not wheel). And you just know that large numbers of the blog audience will follow the author’s advice, turning their back on jobs, mortgage payments and a cozy existence to hit the road for extended periods of time. Of course, this is obvious from the comments section of these blogs: “Just decided to sell everything and go! It is the way to do it. Make a decison to avoid regrets later,,, its so worth it!!”, pleads reader Chris. Well, I got news for you, Chris: you convinced me! So here we are, 5 months on the road as I write this...
