For all nomad wannabes, James must be your idol. At age 24 he is said to have travelled to 196 sovereign countries around the world. That incredible Journey took him five years, splitting time to read for his graduation from the London School of Economics…
You see, for doing this he could have been awarded the “Tribal Chief” certification. Recall this is a lifetime award and he need not re-certify. Let his exploits be framed into the halls of fame! Remember this is the highest accolade that one can
purchase be bestowed upon from the World Traveler Institute (WTI) – no affiliations with the UNWTO of course…since we made it all up. But since we had no takers, this business venture has not lifted off. Anyone still interested?
If you read the article, you will note that James did not just dropped everything and went traveling. He actually managed to graduate from the LSE in the process of doing so! Woohoo! Yeah there was a gap year, but can you imagine being to all sovereign countries on this planet in that span of time? The passport must had been fully stamped! LOL.
And funds do run out when you are ‘YOLOing‘…so James was candid about the fact he had to get into all kinds of jobs to support this traipse around the world. Consider that this is a far cry from his current job! Don’t stalk him though.
But the question for today’s post is not about YOLO travel. It’s about what you do AFTER you have completed this “quest” (in our opinion). Aside from sharing the experience to 80,000 followers on instagram, what else would one do? Would it be meaningful?
If you were James (at 28 and visited all the world), what would your life goals be next?
