I know it takes time to plan trips, but heck once you take the first, the next will be easier. Matter of fact I am planning a Colombia trip. So what gives with all the negative posts and lack of progress on trips?
For me, it's because I have obligations that will extend through the end of this year. 2016, for sure, could be a year that I start seriously traveling.
However, with that said, I have done some vacation traveling and have overall not been very impressed. Either the place itself is a shithole or the women aren't all that great (recently, I've been coming to terms that women aren't really all that great anywhere).
Pretty much since the beginning of this year, I haven't been involved with women in any context (outside of work). This has been the longest time in my life where I have not been meeting, dating, or just hanging out with women and, honestly, it's been very enjoyable.
So I've been realizing that I don't need women in my life to be happy (quite the opposite) and I enjoy the creature comforts (and the food) in the US. So I'll probably try to stick it out here (unless things go ass-up in my career, which is always possible).
