    Same here, I would love to travel full time

    I always watch Nat Geo documentaries with the hosts traveling all around, to film and take photography of the places

    Wish I'm there....

    They went in a team, if for oneself to go like that, hard and dangerous. Saw the landscape of Alaska, jaw drop! Too bad, local tour dont move so deep in there.

    Back to topic. For me, I will save up 10k or more and then rent out my flat for a family for 2k+ for 2 yrs contract. Then I just travel alone and back in 2 yrs to recharge. Off again in 6 mths and back in 2 yrs etc... If do for 10 times, that will be 25 yrs in total! haha!
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    I could travel happily until the end of my days .. full time travel as home is where ever I am at a given time. After nearly 50 years of travelling internationally it has lost none of it's enjoyment though I do hate the increased paranoia at airports etc.

    No family commitment, but have work and home to return after 3 to 6 weeks overseas is common
    It is a break away from work to take away boredom and refresh myself for work again once a year.
    After retirement, fit and capable to travel far and wide, I will stay longer to enjoy but still will be
    back home, a place where I rest with comfort to recuperate

    Well, I would never wish to come back and stay in Singapore if I can. I will move my whole family overseas, as there is just so much photos to take. Perhaps its just me, but I find it stifling here that I don't ever wish to take any photos.... Sigh! We stayed in the Uk for 1 year and it was just wonderful and free. My daughters love the spaces and cool climate.

    Too long away alone can also be boring

    For me, about 3 weeks -1 month is just nice

    After that, come back, meet up with friends, do some freelance work for awhile to earn money for the next trip
