Anybody want to just get up and go?

I often have the idea of moving away from things, where I can be in a warm, sunny environment, and get all the sleep I need, and just live frugally off of savings.

Anybody else?

Obviously eat Paleo. I mean I have friends in real life, but they're all content and also not suffering from chronic fatigue such as I am, and don't want to move away.

IBS. Sorry - didn't mean to turn this into a pity party. I absolutely think you should save your money and go live on the beach. The 3 months I spent in southeast asia when I was in my 20s were the best 3 months of my life.

that's a depressing point of view. real food, raw nutrients, little stress, sunshine, warm weather, healthy sex life, healthy social life will change you! we're not meant to stare at a computer screen.

when I was a teen, I wish someone had told me to never take antibiotics, eat paleo, eat raw foods, don't look at porn, dont play video games, don't surf the internet, limit caffeine and don't do any hard drugs, weed and alcohol are okay in moderation.

You need to go alone. For this kind of experience, you need to meet people from all over the world, talk to them..learn from them. This is a trip about YOU, not about being surrounded by the comforts of home, including friends. You'll get your spark, and you'll keep it because few in the world will have completed such a personal journey.

See, my main problem is that I don't have excitement and people skills anymore. I need to regain those. I'm physically fit, but I have no spark anymore. You soound like you have a lot of spark. I mean I'm literally looking for people whod want to join me.

I traveled all over Central and South America for two years after the Dot Bomb and can't recommend it enough!!! I spent $15K for two years and it was WELL worth it. You'll need to plan and save, but now is the time to do it. Interest rates will be increasing in the next two years, so if you can escape now, do it!!!

And, it doesn't hurt to have a few marketable skills. I have "horse" and business consulting skills and found jobs along the way taking rich tourists on day trips and worked for USAID. This paid for some housing and airfare, which meant I could negotiate once I was "in country".

It is far easier to find cheap housing (Market rent vs tourist rent) once you arrive, vs booking it online. I'd also look at language schools to help you find local connections to lower your costs.

Get ready for GRAD SCHOOL, my friend!

I have that thought a lot. Living in a big city, working at a computer, bad weather, stress... you just think ESCAPE.

But like you, I have a chronic illness, and I think sometimes that feeling comes from wanting to escape myself and the suffering my body causes me. And I know that if I were lying on a beach, I'd feel better than I do in the office, but I'd still be me, with the same issues. "Wherever you go, there you are."

In the meantime, go to a restorative, gentle yoga class if you can. Getting warm, relaxing, breathing - it's not Bali but it helps.
