It was only after quiting my job 7 years ago and delving into the world of internet-for-work, that I started exploring the real world. No need to ask for permission and day-off; I only have to take my laptop and smartphone with me, catch a flight or boat or take my car to go to a destination I saw earlier somewhere on google earth or youtube. People call us "the digital nomads", and this says it all.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
