In Response to: Life On the Road

I read “Two for the Road” (cover story, April 24) with great interest. Too many of us work long and hard and never get to enjoy what is around us.

Three years ago I said goodbye to corporate America and my team at Facebook and have enjoyed an amazing set of travels and adventures since then. Starting with a midnight flight to Bali on April 1 and ending five continents, six seas, countless ocean activities, 38 flights, and two kids (we continued traveling with them!) later, I am extremely happy to have taken the time to see what is around me. 

I highly recommend taking time off to pursue your dreams before it is too late. Remember the eternal words of the sadly departed Mark Hollis from the English band Talk Talk: “Life’s what you make it, celebrate it!”
