I just graduated from college this May and have become more and more interested in the van-lifestyle. I recently just explored around in Utah and Colorado and was left wanting more of the outdoors and adventure. It’s become my dream to travel out west (I’m from PA) and hit the road in my very own van.
However, I have already sprouted plans to attend graduate school in this August for a master’s degree in psychology. As I get closer to this reality, I just gain more of a gut feeling about putting off school and heading out to travel instead. There’s that part of me that tells me that I’ll have my entire life to get a master’s and find my career. But this chance to travel will only come now.
I guess I am just looking for a piece of advice from expert and experienced vanlifers on this situation. I am only 22 years old and have my entire life to travel. But I can’t rid myself of that lingering gut feeling that I should withdraw my acceptance and hit the road. Graduate school will always be there, right?
What do you think?
Sorry if I am clogging up the forum with my life story, but I feel lost and would appreciate advice from those living the dream I admire.
