Have you ever had thoughts similar to:
"Oh, I wish I could be a pensioner when I'm young, and work when I'm old"
"I'm so exhausted in my job, I really need half a year of vacation to sort things out and get back on track"?
I bet you did. What action did you take? Erm, yes. The action to "wait a little bit and see what happens".
That's ok - most of us choose this one, and later on wonder what would happen IF a different option was chosen.
And thats exactly what we'll do: cringel.com is here to illustrate and document the progress of the friends, who once decided to quit the established positions in companies they worked for, take a break in their careers and travel to Asia, for travel and exploration purposes. Read our manifesto here.
So whenever you get bored in the office, you should come over and read what would you be doing at this very moment if you had chosen that other option. (Bookmark cringel.com now, it will be easier to find it later!)
The answer to why we named ourselves and this website "Cringel" is here.
Some quick facts:
- The departure was 2007 January 23
- We started in Thailand
- We managed to persuade 2 more friends to join us in Thailand, met two more in Nepal, and one more in Australia. Small world.
- The plan is to stay until August, 2007. Update: return date moved to December 2007
- Countries visited are:
- New Zealand
- Thailand, again
Went home December 15th, 2007. Detailed route of our trip - here
So, what do you think? Was worth trying this or should we have better stayed at our jobs? Write a short comment now (the link is just below)
