Real-Life Stories: I quit my job and traveled the world

Carol Vu: Morocco

Have you ever dreamed of quitting your job to travel the world? On the slides of this gallery you'll meet ten people who actually did.

Some of these individuals, such as Doreen Orion and her husband, left everything behind to travel and re-connect with one another on a year-long bus trip across the U.S. Others were inspired by changing events in their lives (failed relationships, serious illness, the death of a loved one), to leave behind successful careers to find themselves abroad.
