In America, traveling full time is something that seems to be by default left for retirement after a career – when life savings, pension and social security can pay for the base expenses. Full Time RVing is a lifestyle that generations ahead of ours have been exploring for sometime, and have thankfully paved many of the practical paths for us.
However, waiting for retirement may not be the solution for all of us. Our callings for wanderlust come stronger and we begin to wonder if we can make travel a lifestyle earlier in life. But not many of us are in a position to quit the workforce and sustain a lifestyle we want financially. And besides, we were also brought up believing that social security shouldn’t be depended on for funding our retirements. I’ve never really even thought about traditional retirement being a part of my plan, as long as I had rewarding work nicely balanced in with my life.
There are many careers that are indeed not apt to a full time traveling lifestyle, and for those on such a career path they’re passionate about that is reason enough to put off travel until that path has been fully explored. Instead, finding ways to integrate in purposeful travel into your vacation time and/or ramping up business related travel may just have to do until such time full time travel becomes more important and feasible in your life.

Each of us needs to find our own balance that combines exploring the world with preserving it. And if you stay conscious to your consumption, you don’t have to compromise your wanderlust for your desire to live a sustainable life.
