Couple Shares Downside Of Quitting Jobs To Travel The World


Earlier this year, two ad agency workers from South Africa quit their steady jobs and embarked on a mission to travel as far as they could.

Based on the images shared on their Instagram, 'How Far From Home,' it appears they have been having a great time, but it's not entirely true.

Globe trotting companions Chanel Cartell and Stevo Dirnberger recently shared some of the downsides of their journey.

As travelling the world in style is an incredibly expensive venture, Cartell and Dirnberger chose a more budget-appropriate option.

They signed up with the service Workaway, which finds situations for people to do odd jobs in exchange for food and shelter.

Said Cartell, "So far, I think we've tallied 135 toilets scrubbed, 250 kilos of cow dung spread, 2 tons of rocks shovelled, 60 metres of pathway laid, 57 beds made, and I cannot even remember how many wine glasses we've polished."

She also declared that all of the labor has been well worth it, but cautions others against doing the same as the life certainly isn't for everyone.
