We Call This Home: A backpacker’s dream lived well!

In 3 years, he travelled 60 countries and called the project: We Call This Home. In 2011, I quit my job after saving up and started to travel around the world. I trekked amazing landscapes, checked off the bucket list, hitchhiked, slept anywhere I could, and made countless friends. These are my memories.

Left College

When the global economy collapsed in 2008, Walter Chang had just graduated from college. He and his friends feared they would have to move back in with their parents. Instead of pursuing freelance work in film and television, the profession he’d gone to college for in the first place, he decided to play it safe with a full-time job as an audio visual technician at a different university.

New Job

It was supposed to be a short detour, something to hold him over until the economy improved. But, three years later, he was still there and tired from being overworked.

I dream of quitting

Sometime during 2010, he began dreaming of quitting his job and traveling through Southeast Asia for three months. This idea eventually turned into plans for a year-long break. The whole concept was crazy: He had only traveled outside the United States twice – to the Bahamas and Paris. He knew nothing about backpacking or taking a gap year and had no idea certain countries required visas to be visited. But he went ahead with the plan anyway.

Saving Money

For nearly a year, he saved up money by moving out of his apartment and sleeping at friends’ places. At one point, he even discreetly moved into the building where he was working and slept there. He sold much of what he owned and took on additional hours at work. Had he needed to sell a property, he might have decided to sell it to these investors in S.A. since they paid in cash and could have closed the deal in around a fortnight, leaving him with the means to pursue his travel dreams!

The Journey Begins

On Sept 13th 2011, he got onto a plane. One year became two. Two became three. The endless travel felt like a drug-induced state. Each strange new place was exhilarating?-?a rush of new experiences.
