It’s so much easier to travel when you’re still young.
The time/money tension is an interesting one. You have more of the former and not enough of the latter when young. Meanwhile, you might have less of the former and more of the latter when old.

Don’t be embarassed, it’s natural reaction.
Sir. George Tafaria (a name with masaai origin) has surely become an inspiration to me. He left the corporate world to pursue his dream of building a castle in his mother’s land and he did. Wow! (pause) Pause again just for a moment and think of the turning point in his life? Can you think of how he was battling whether to leave the consistent salary at the end of the month or to go and venture into a dream that might or might not work. Think about the challenges he was bound to face in terms of finances, the terrain, the structure…the whole idea. How many of us are facing such a case scenario?
