For years i have been dreaming of my own round the world (RTW) adventure. This year (2013) it?s going to start. In May 2013, i applied for a voluntary redundancy package from IBM. With some help from my people manager (thanks Paula!), i was offered a package that would allow me to travel for a couple of years. In July 2013, I left the security of full time employment, for a nomadic lifestyle.
