Currently I am 29, living in central europe and working as a dev. The job is chill, but a little boring, the salary ok, but nothing I could not replicate elsewhere with my masters degree. I live in the countryside in a huge flat, drive a nice car and in general life is good, but just too boring. I travelled a lot in my uni days (30 countries) and lived in asia for half a year (which was one of the best times in my life), but since I work fulltime, I did not have the time to really travel anymore and now is probably my last chance to go on a big trip, before life I settle down. With about 100k €, which I have saved up in ETFs and cash, I could stay abroad for quite a while, without working, but I do not want to use up all of it.
Therefore, I am debating whether to just go on a 3-4 month trip backpacking and visiting a bunch of countries, try to really live/work abroad for a year or sign into some language school and study for a year (e.g. Spanish and Salsa lessons in Buenos Aires).
What do you think? I tried DN for 2 month already some years ago with a part time job, and it honestly just felt like a waste of time, I was missing out on so many things. But this might be different if you do it for longer than the normal duration of a trip (e.g. 10 months instead of a 3 month trip.)
