Without stealing your thunder, can I say: me too! I’m leaving my well-paying, soul-sucking job to go and volunteer in a restaurant in Vietnam that trains street kids in hospitality. I start on December 1 and will be there three months, maybe longer, teaching English and working on other projects. I want to do something more meaningful with my life, where I can use my skills and experience to make a difference in the world. Good luck to you, and I will follow your journey with much interest.
