Is it worth going?

Hi, I have been fixated on going travelling for a while now, however I've been with my girlfriend who I love very much for over 2 years, I really can see me being with her a long time however I've always wanted to travel around the world, starting with Australia... I was just wondering if someone could advise me if it is in fact worth it. Would it be worth sacrificing a job and a girlfriend of over 2 years?

Thanks in advance!

With all due respects, nobody in their right mind is going to try and answer that for you.

But think about this, if you're thinking you can see yourself spending the rest of your life with her, why are you even contemplating sacrificing her to travel?

Bizarre.

Just wondering, before discussing this question with the whole world, have you discussed it with your girlfriend? Maybe she's just as keen to travel as you are?

No one can answer this question but you!

You should also be asking yourself why you are not speaking to your gf about this.

Hi Benny

This is one of those questions no one can answer for you (the girlfriend bit anyway, if it was just the job I would say go).

I assume you have considered taking your girlfriend with you?

Do you have to travel the whole world in one go? Why not do bits at a time, that way you don't have to sacrifice either your job or your girlfriend.

Hi,

I think I hear the trit trot of the goats on the TROLL"S Bridge!!!

What a shame as by KVE 1005's criteria, (and my own) I'm uniquely qualified to answer.

I would suggest if you have to ask the question the answer is self evident.

Cheers,

Maybe if you just came for a week or two she'd wait?

or maybe she would think it was wonderful that he was leaving her for 2 whole years!
