Thank you for writing this. These very ideas have been percolating in my head for some time. I’ve been juggling travel+new career+long term health issues, and it’s been too much to do at once without doing poorly in all three. Reading your work gave me the kick in the pants I needed to stop traveling until my health and career are in a stable enough place that I can travel consistently. Your perspective, as someone who admittedly made this mistake, is invaluable. (And the fact is, I won’t get the joy out of travel I want if I’m constantly worried about health and money anyways).
