What is my why

I have just signed up with BootsnAll for a 30day program exercise and day 2 is about the whys
  • I want to see the world before I am old. 
  • Because I would regret it on my death bed if I didn't (this was my original why - it has changed). 
  • I just got fired/divorced/graduated/quit, and the time is now to embrace change.
  • I'm not sure what I want to do, and I feel uninspired in my current life. Long-term travel may help open and challenge my assumptions of what is possible.
  • I want to learn about a specific part of the world, and going there is the best way.
  • Because I can!
  • I want to see the 7 wonders of the world.
  • I want to taste and visit the 7 best wine regions in the world.
  • I want to learn via experience (see, smell, hear, touch) not just reading or watching youtube videos. 
  • Me (and my partner) are middle-aged and lots of the encumberances and commitments of life are gone (kids, mortgages etc). Instead of buying an RV, we want to see the world together.
  • I want to try my hand at being location independent or a permanent nomad. A RTW trip is the perfect way to start to explore this lifestyle.
So funny enough, what are my whys? There's alot of truth from the above and I don't think I have a specific why but it wouldn't be things like discover myself but from experience, you would learn something from traveling so self discovery is a bonus but I am not so lost that I need to go somewhere to find myself all over again.

I think it's because I want to. It's something that I knew I wanted to do but always think it's impossible but not anymore. So why waste time? I am not getting any younger and it will get harder as you get older, not impossible but just harder.

That painting would look great over my bed.
You definitely have wanderlust in your blood.

I think it would look great if the man in it sleeps on my bed XP
