Carolina and Emilio had a dream, a dream that many of us perhaps have: to know the world . But — also like many of us — they thought it was reserved for younger, richer, more “hippie” people. After the 30 years, they met and, together, they were encouraged to take off. They got a one-way ticket and they've been traveling almost a year ago.
A stable life, an office job, the project of a family, what others could say, what they had to set aside to start that dream was a lot. Fears, too. But the desire was more . They quit their jobs, sold what they had and used their savings. Today they travel the world on a budget that does not exceed $30 per day per person, including transfers, accommodation, food and everything you need.
The first ticket , the one that started everything, went to Japan . They left in January 2019 and have no return ticket yet. They already have more than 140 cities visited and 23 countries . Some of them? Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China, Mongolia, Russia, Italy, Austria, Spain, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary.
Carolina and Emilio share their experience through a website, from which they seek to encourage other travelers to do the same thing they do: Caro and Emi 360 . They are presented as “a +30 couple who dare to leave everything to travel the world”.
There, they explain that the important thing to achieve the goal of living traveling is to make an intelligent effort : “We realized that it was about knowing HOW to travel and HOW to use our resources, rather than just diverting ourselves by gathering a lot of twine. It was more about making contacts, talking to people, making good decisions and encouraging oneself, rather than just enslaving or thinking about it impossible and giving up the dream.”
Are you thinking about leaving everything and traveling? I learned from Caro and Emi: “Life is today, dreams are today.”
