Just a quick introduction. im currently planning a 1 year rtw trip that will start in Apirl of next year. So I was telling a buddy about this and about the rough plan and his immediate response was "I couldnt do that". Initially I thought here comes the usual "couldnt leave friends and family and all the risks bla bla bla" speech. But that was no concern, what he pointed out that after having such an experience he thought he would never be able to settle back into "normal" every day life. What's the experience of folks that have done 1year+ trips ? Were you able to settle in again ? For me I'll deal with the issue when and if it presents itself but im curious about others experiences.
