      Seems nice but traveling around the world FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD (2.5yrs) is something you do when you are retired….I went to howard as well….working on my CRNA in chicago…I’m 26…..I dont have time for paris and kenya….i’m trying to get this money…6 figures…..

      Since 2012?…..nah uh hunny….

      Chileee……….even beyonce and jay z WORTH MILLIONS don’t play those games….the carters vacay for 1 or 2 months then its back 2 business….

      I get that you like to travel but this extended 3yr honeymoon lah lah land mentality seems excessive…I’m also not buying your ability to fund your expenses…..maybe your dad or uncle is sliding your a few loose dollars every now and then….Don’t sit there and say you’re funding this lifestyle on yalls own….i dont believe it….don’t sell us a rosy dream….we’re not stupid… additional financial support is coming from somewhere….you’re not telling us the real tea on how you are paying for this EXACTLY…..

      Are you working overseas or is it really a “honeymoon”?….

      I’m not trying to be negative….

      I’m a realistic person and i like to calculate info.

      If you’re working overseas, don’t say you’re on a honeymoon….lol….don’t sell false outlandish dreams…..

        I can relate. I was all about the money when I graduated from college, driving myself to make six figures. The closer I got, the more I realized it was not a lot of money. I was earning every dollar I received, with my time, missing out on my life. I’m not interested in waiting until I’m 50 to live my life how I want. I believe that system was created for the industrial age and we have surpassed it. We are now in the information/creation age. With the internet you can create businesses with no overhead or start up capital. If you’re really interested, email me from my blog, there really is no gimmick or rich relative. We fund everything ourselves, doing what we love, as we travel the world, together. That’s my idea of an indefinite honeymoon.

        Why can’t we be happy someone is living their dream, why do we have to bash their lifestyle. It’s not up to us to try to figure out if uncle or dad is sliding a few extra dollars. She’s simply sharing an inspiring story on how her and her husband decided to travel and live freely. Kudos to them one day I hope I have the courage to do the same!

        You sound envious. People do this all the time. People back pack around all over Asia, South America on little money or some . I know plenty of people who had left their jobs through corporate positions to travel.Blacks need to expand their mind and travel more or you end up thinking this. Selling a dream? You have a lot to learn.

        Wow, your negativity is so toxic. You may want to work until you’re grey but not everyone does. I commend this couple for doing something they love, not everyone cares about a corporate job. (Obviously they quit, so they wanted something different). You must not have read the entire post because they did mention that they house sat, dog sat, & ran a business for a while with stipend. Regardless if they are working, they’re enjoying it & they love one another so they can call it a honeymoon if they like. Try not to be so jaded, open yourself up to other opportunities… A ‘job’ isn’t the only way to get rich.

      7. If success to you means a big paycheck, my heart weeps for you.
        Newsflash: travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

        I started traveling when I was a broke college student, I didn’t buy expensive material things with my tax refund, I bought plane tickets well ahead of advance. There are ways to travel often or for extended period of time, it’s a matter of stretching that dollar until it hollers.
        Just because people are taking these trips doesn’t mean they are not saving, at least everyone should! Have a travel fund and a retirement fund.
        Life is not about the 9-5 honey. Take one trip abroad, (Caribbean resort doesn’t count :D), I bet you’ll wish you never wrote this post or you can keep working like you say you are and wait till you’re old with arthritic joints, not so sharp vision and memory to travel….;)
        But hey do you! For those of you who want to live…. We’re off to Dubai, Rome, Cape Town, Casablanca this year…

        Lol its amazing to me that people feel the need to question the validity of someone else’s journey. If its not for you, its not for you. No need to judge or be “realistic” in regards to how people choose to live their life. You sound miserable and bitter. Very inspiring article, and while many people may not be able to facilitate such a lifestyle or journey, its a beautiful thing to see a young couple doing what THEY love and not conforming to the conventional “way of life” which is ..Go to school, get a job, work, retire, then LIVE.

      10. Traneka says:

        She’s not selling outlandish dreams. I’ve done the exact same thing and no one was sliding me any money. It is possible but you have to have a plan. A realist is someone who has experienced something and then has an opinion not someone who has never done something and has an opinion, that’s a pessimist lol.
        Rather than say it’s not possible, why not ask how she did it? Maybe it’s not possible for you because you’re wrapped up in the dream that you were sold. I think it’s great that you’re going to medical school but I’d rather be living. Why wait to live after? I don’t think it’s excessive at all. It’s the true American Dream. What you don’t realize is that there’s a plethora of opportunities for people abroad and usually it’s a job that’s profitable and won’t take all of your time. I just want you to think outside of the box because it’s more than just relaxing, there are many opportunities for us abroad that we don’t know about because we’d rather have someone’s foot on our neck (clocking in 9-6). We are poisoned to think that this is how life is supposed to be. Nope! I’m living in Spain now btw. I lived in Korea first. It’s possible. I’m traveling all over Europe without daddy’s money lol and you can too! You just have to be in the circle (wanderlust circle) to know how to get things on the cheap!

        Ahh!! LOVE.

        Necole, I pray that God will bless you with a husband your precious heart desires, and then one day you two can travel the world together. That’s always been a prayer of mine, because I am a free bird as well and love to travel (as a journalist) and explore. However, I’m not afraid of commitment. I’m patiently waiting for the one, because our time and God’s time isn’t the same. Hang in there, your time will come. I love you and everything you stand for, Necole. Blessings. Xo.

    They are a beautiful couple and this is so awesome. I agree Necole that uis one thing that scares me about marriage is that will I be able to still travel. This inspires me as well. i hope I can find a man who loves to travel. Necole these stories have been inspiring and has me on my A game.

    That’s absolutely amazing and inspiring. This September, I’m actually taking my 10 year old of school for the 6th grade and homeschooling her so we can travel the world. I’m a 14 year veteran teacher, so schooling her won’t be a problem. I’ll be home based in London and traveling to different countries from there.

    Love 🙂 I agree re England, London is fire and you should deffo go there but there is much to be discovered in the countryside and smaller cities/towns. Cornwall for its Lands End, cream tea and surfing spots plus its walk along lands-end, Norwich for its 2 cathedrals like a million churches.

    Necole. This is great. Loving the content. There are so many smart black women who read this blog. I’d love to learn more about you all 🙂

    1. DreaMLC says:

      I must agree, I am loving the broadened content. While I am admittedly entertained by the gossip, I was visiting less and less. It was just too much negativity, and too narrow in viewpoint. People are not respectful of differing opinions. I love travel! I didn’t do as much traveling when I was single as I should’ve. Having children, forced me to travel more. I wanted them to grow up as citizens of the world. I could see how each trip changed our family for the better. My daughter was shy and reserved, traveling has helped her come out of her shell. She is growing into a confident young lady. My son, has developed new interests as a result. My husband and I have improved our language skills immensely. Though we are still novices, we have instilled a love of travel in our children already. Those that are thinking about it, start by getting a passport. I was shocked to find out how many Americans have never had a passport! You cannot truly know what it means to be American, if you’ve never exercised the freedom that an American passport affords you.

      Thanks Necole, I am loving the new content! I can tell you are growing as a person, thanks for sharing that with your readers. We’re getting ideas for our next family trip from this lovely couple. I wonder if they plan to have children, and how they plan to incorporate travel into their family life. It can be done. They are resourceful and creative people, so I am sure it will be interesting. I wish them continued bliss.

    1. Lola010 says:

      Yea pretty much. I love their story and they have been Very fortunate to score the gigs that they’ve had. But I will say that there are plenty of other young people that have set out to do the same thing.. and have ended up homeless. I saw this when I went to Hawaii last summer. It is a risk. And ppl should do their best to get back home once it becomes unfeasible.

      (0)
    2. Amirah says:

      I’ve always said I’m a nomad, but it’s not completely accurate. ‘Location Independent’ is a better description. we just decided to bet on ourselves and leverage our talents for a living. We make a living online and decide to spend our money living in different places semi often.

      We had to create the careers. We started off making nothing, then went to making a fraction of what we made when we had corporate jobs. But by living minimally we’ve been able to have more experiences and less things.

    This is my definition of “relationship goals”. I love traveling and this year, I’ll be taking my first solo trip to South Africa. Seeing this couple not only traveling abroad but creating the life that they always wanted is something I hope to have in my own life. Just an inspiring story all the way around!

      Agreed! Too many people consider “relationship goals” as having the flyest clothes & shoes together. Material items have no match to this.

    And what do they do for healthcare? And YES I read the article and it wasn’t mentioned. I’m pretty sure they have gotten sick due to not being accustomed to cuisine and international water outside the US, among other things. Their story seems fun and amazing, most definitely, but when it comes to a dead end, they’re going to be slapped in the face with reality when they eventually return home.

    (0)
    1. Amirah says:

      A lot of countries offer free or VERY cheap healthcare. The States have some of the most expensive healthcare and medication in the world. When we get sick, we go to the pharmacy/doctor/hospital. We try not to think so much of ‘what if we fail?’ and focus more on the beautiful possibilities once we succeed.

      Thats what I was wondering adventerous life yes, social media and IG makes everything look exciting but this isn’t ideal for everyone. eventually reality will set in, sooner or later youve got to come home and face reality. And reality is money makes the world go round

      (0)
      1. Brandi says:

        No it isn’t for everybody. Probably not for you since your opinion is in direct opposition to the whole point of their travels. They’ve been fortunate to call 12 countries “home”… Money does NOT make the world go round.. Money is the most basic carrot for the most basic standard of living. You spend your life chasing a piece of paper that can be printed by the same system that objectifies you while these two brave individuals spend their lives chasing the intangible beauties of the world. Lovely story!

    3. Yvonne says:

      Out of all these awesome comments I couldn’t help but notice how your negativity stuck out like a sore thumb. This couple is clearly living in the moment and taking life as it comes. You should know that heath care is free in MOST countries except for the U.S. I’m almost certain that when and if they do decide to return home, they won’t be “slapped in the face” with reality but will find a way by doing exactly what they did abroad, as well as embrace the perks of having your family and friends accessible if they need anything. So don’t put a damper on their lifestyle because YOU chose to stick to a cubicle. Open your mind. God bless you.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience.
      I end up travelling alone most of the time…people always say they want to go, but something always comes up.
      I’ve travelled every continent except Antarctica. I go alone to countries where I have never been, don’t know anyone, don’t speak the language…my friends and family think it’s crazy, but before I even get home I am planning the next adventure.
      I’m sure you have inspired some people to go ahead and get a passport, or at least fill out the form and take the pictures.
      Thanks.

        1. PIlot Jones says:

          You and your husband are truly amazing! I’m planning a solo trip once I complete my undergrad Spring of 2016 and I was actually aiming for this summer! But due to the fact that I quit my previous job to find a job closer to my field I drained my travel savings on surviving and although I found that stepping stone job I’m still pretty much living on financial aid *sad face*. I’ve been out of the country a few times (London, Paris, Jamaica, Barbados) and ever since my first time out of the country I’ve had wanderlust like you wouldn’t believe lol. One of my colleagues at school travels all of the time and she was able to give me some good tips on cheap flights but I’m not down with the whole hostel thing especially travelling alone. Long story short between you and your husband and my best friend and her wife who pretty much tour Europe the same way you do (they house swapped, bartered and house sat). I’m almost convinced that I can still make it happen or at least make this summer a part one lol. Thank you for sharing your story and providing great information. Now all I have to do is get over the whole what everyone will think of me traveling alone overseas for 4-6 weeks thought and I’m ready!!

        2. Amirah says:

          I’ll be honest, my only understanding of a hostel before we left was from the horror movie. I was not excited about it at all. But we have stayed in hostels 4 or 5 times and its nothing like that. They’re actually great for solo travelers because you get to meet other travelers. You can always book a private room or an all girls dorm. We don’t stay in hostels too much because its two of us, so its usually the same price as a hotel or private room.

        That is awesome! How beautiful that you get to share that with your children! I want to get to Nigeria so bad, I’ve heard and read how beautiful it is there. Flights in Africa are so expensive. We’ve managed to find some great deals on flights to Northern Africa from Europe, but I have to get further south.

    What happens when the opportunities run out, when your down to your last dollar sooner or later money runs out. I dont know seems stressful cause nothings plan and youve got to constatntly look for a hand out, or hope to find spare of the moment work to help with where you will eat, stay,live maintain. thats a job within itself. I dont know just my opinion i”ll stick with my career,my 401k,benefits among other things. and yes i still travel alot actually i just like the luxury of making a salary and having a nice home to come to at the end of the day

      I completely understand the way you feel. That was the way I felt before I moved to LA with $400. I quickly learned the scale of my perseverance. I didn’t turn to dust, I utilized my resources, leveraged my skills and ended up living on Wilshire Blvd. When the opportunities ‘run out’, I market myself the same way others market themselves for a job. While they sell themselves in a resume, I sell myself through proposals and propositions. I choose to live my life from a position of power. While it is risky and may appear to be insecure, I have more security now than I did working for a Fortune 500 Company. I believe in my ability to feed and shelter myself and I haven’t failed yet. You might be surprised at your ability if you gave yourself the chance to flourish on your own terms.

      What happens if you’re fired, your company goes bankrupt, the market crashes, you’re laid off? Hell, what if there’s a problem processing your pay? It’s so interesting that you find so much “security” by being 100% reliant on another.

      1. Let My People Go says:

        Thank you Brandi.. It’s extremely naive to think security is aligned with corporate America. It’s obvious by the questions about healthcare abroad that some are very unaware that there is a big world besides the US. Age does not equal maturity obviously.

      2. Tam says:

        Thats the name of the game. Amirah and hubby are reliant on people just in a different way. Dont start dumping on how knockitoff appreciates working a job and security is in convention. So what. Not everyone can do what amirahs doing.

    Healthcare coverage varies dramatically between countries, so research before you take off. Perfect example: Canada vs USA. Healthcare is free for citizens/residents only, anyone else WILL be paying out of pocket…whereas our neighbours to the south…better have good health insurance!

    Sorry Necole. I love checking in on the gossip and other stories that you post. However, I was very disappointed in this story because just like others it shows the fluff and fantasy but not the substance. When I was reading this story it didn’t explain AT ALL how they paid so cheaply for their flights and/or how to obtain a “flight glitch”, which I read is extremely rare to get or time consuming. Hence, it would be difficult to just travel on a whim like they were doing. Here’s an article on huffpost if anyone’s interested about flight glitches. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/grace-mcclure/how-to-catch-an-airline-p_b_4644139.html. Please include stories that give more details and not just fluffy magical stories that get you all excited and you’re still left figuring out, “How the hell do I do that”?

    1. Ted says:

      Lol. You missed a step. How do you explain how you paid for a cheap flight? Lol when chicken is $6, instead of $8, and someone says “how did u pay for it?”, what would you say? You ppl tht r so focused on price will be sitting in the same place that ur typing from. It’s not fluff because YOU can’t fathom it

      Please don’t allow yourself to be disappointed with this article. You will be doing yourself a HUGE disservice. We all follow each other on IG…. If you follow @travelnoire @canstayput @coolyounghistory @travelismyreligion @woman0nthemove @flyingwithapurpose you will see that we all devote time to sharing ‘travel hacking’ tips. Those glitches that sound impossible are possible… It’s called paying attention to flight alerts, setting aside $200 – $600 for that moment your dream trip just dropped by $500 bc you can purchase tickets from a carrier with your location disguised or a Swiss airline has a huge discount that will only last 30 minutes & you just caught it. Since you read the article…. There is a special purpose in that bc now you are exposed to travel tips that millions have no clue about. Take a look at their blog & you’ll see the tips they share & they are 100% legit.

      I tried not to make it fluff, I hate when people do that, but the article was already super long. I could literally write about this stuff all day. I actually do write about this stuff all day on my blog, which was why I linked to it so that you can read more if you want! I wouldn’t believe the flight glitches were real if I hadn’t experienced them myself. It’s all about being into the travel communities. Checking websites regular, signing up for alerts and being flexible with your time. You can read how we took advantage of a flight glitch here and learn of the websites to use so that you too can find them.. http://coolyounghistory.com/taking-advantage-airline-glitch/

      And as far as flights to Panama, they’re just really that cheap. I had no idea until I searched it, but the cheap flight was the main reason we started there. Keep in mind, we only buy one-way flights. There aren’t any gimmicks, I didn’t even start off intending to blog about it. Once I started learning all this stuff I felt I had to share because I hadn’t even known it existed while I was in Corporate America.

        For everyone wondering…there are flight sales all the time on regional carriers around the world. I flew to Dublin on a whim for ONE pound plus taxes/fees for a long weekend when I was living in England for school. Took the train business class to Paris on another last minute sale for 35 euros (granted that was a few years ago), same goes for South America ( I can only speak for Brazil and Peru). It IS possible, Amirah is not making this stuff up! Happy travels everyone 🙂

      2. K. Nichole says:

        I completely agree. This story was wonderful but not realistic for everyone. Before I had my children, my family needed my support. I work so hard so that my children can live to be free spirits like this. I don’t want them to feel restricted by having to worry about the conditions and finances of family. Amirah and her husband have been very blessed. Traveling abroad is very risky without the funds, but I am glad to see that they are the few who have been able to find a way

        (0)
        1. Amirah says:

          No, definitely not possible for everyone. My parents definitely could not have done this and there are even many reasons why we shouldn’t have been able to do this ourselves. We’re just regular kids from Ohio, who went to public schools. None of our friends have even traveled abroad. I know my path isn’t for everyone, but I know that my parents sacrificed so much to make me even consider it as a possibility (although I was scared out of my mind to make it a reality). My lifestyle is very risky, but I found that my corporate job was very risky as well. I just chose to bet on myself and have not looked back since.

      I honestly have to thank my parents for encouraging me to do something like this and they’re always stopped by their friends and family commending them for our journey.

  74. A lot of us make that mistake in life…. But don’t let it be your regret, keep pushing towards your dreams. I’m a single mom & my ex-husband never came close to getting a passport, but my son has one & has traveled on his first international trip with me already. Take your trips & that will inspire your daughters as well. You can see some things I’ve done on a budget on IG @ woman0nthemove. I hope to help more families & single moms embrace international travel through exposure to amazing travel resources& inspiration from my travels. Motherhood should make us live a little louder. 😉

    This story is VERY realistic for everyone in my opinion. My friend Renequa is a mom and she has been in Spain for 2 years, her son is 4 going on 5 and he is fluent in Spanish. If you want something truly bad enough you will do whatever it takes. She has been married for 6 years. Her husband is with her in Spain. I know a single mother here as well. If you plan anything is possible. I’m telling you this, because I’ve seen what people call impossible! These ladies are both having a ball. It’s real for those who make it real.

    It’s great when people can live life in a way that makes them happy. The key is doing what makes you happy. For some people being happy is doing work that is fulfilling and rewarding, being close to friends and family, or simply drinking a glass of wine in your own house right here in the USA. Nothing wrong with that either.
    I personally like to travel, but this kind of travel would be stressful for me. With that said, I am sure that plenty of people will find inspiration from their experiences.
