    You sum up a lot of my own thinking here. I know that at some point I want to sail around the world. Does that mean I should become a full time yacht skipper? Of course not! This article sort of falls in to the “should I make my passion my job” category.

    For a lot of people (myself included at times), it’s tempting to answer the question “how do I create the time and money to go on expeditions” by trying to find jobs in the ‘expedition’/adventure industry. I know that this would be extremely unsatisfying.

    There are always alternatives to this, they just take a little more creativity and perhaps some sacrifice and effort too.

      Thanks Martin. That’s a really good point: you don’t have to be a full time adventurer to have an adventure (and it’s probably not even a very good way to go about it).
