In Response to: Life On the Road

I read with great interest the “Two for the Road” article. 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!”
