“When he finally turned down the job, explaining that he wanted to see more of the world first, he could picture the HR rep shaking his head on the other end of the call.  ‘Better get it out of your system,’ the interviewer said.  ‘It’s a shame to pass up a good job…’

If the idea was ludicrous, the planning was almost nonexistent.  Tom was the de facto leader of the trip, yet had little cycling experience.  A previous jaunt to the Scottish Highlands had resulted in confidence but not much knowledge of traveling in difficult conditions where he didn’t speak the language.  He knew nothing about gear.  His travels abroad were limited to a few countries that weren’t very challenging.  In his own words, he was ‘an absolute beginner and 100 percent naïve…’

As rough as it was, after a year of intentional homelessness, Tom had adapted to the challenges of life on the road.  The low points of struggling up hills and cycling into deserts were offset by moments of joy at realizing how far from England he’d come.  Strangers would flag him down and offer bottles of beer.  He would gaze out at winding roads leading to snow-capped mountains, seeing new parts of the world with the eyes of an experienced traveler.  Gone was the naïve young man who had left his home on a whim.” - Chris Guillebeau, The Happiness Of Pursuit
