热点话题:为了旅行辞掉工作?

2015-04-23    来源:普特编辑部    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

你是否会为了旅行辞掉工作?
Would you quit your job to travel the world?

【话题探讨】前几日,一封只有10个字的辞职信引来网友热议。“世界那么大,我想去看看。”一名河南省实验中学女教师为了选择另一种生活方式,辞掉了自己的工作。放弃安稳的工作,选择未知的人生道路,让不少人“惋惜”。但同时,也有人认为,对自己的人生负责,选择自己想要的生活,没有什么不对。你会为了实现旅行梦想而辞掉工作吗?

A resignation letter by a Henan province middle school teacher who wrote, "the world is so big that I want to have a look", has fueled online debate. Have you ever quit your job to travel? You're welcome to leave your comments.

1. Christine (China)

I must confess I love to travel a lot, but it's going to be insane if I quit my job just to travel. When I am back from having fun I am afraid there will be no work to do. Still, it's a difficult decision and each one of us has to weigh it.

2. Joji (US)

I love to travel and have been to many European countries. I am now concentrating on local travel here in the US. I have many co-workers who have never ventured out of the US, even to Canada! I tell them not to wait until retirement before traveling as it might be too late. They tell me that they are tied down because of all the debts and mortgage. I say if there's a will, there's a way.

3. Cory (Portugal)

I find it really brave to let it all go and one day decide: yep, that's it, I'm quitting my job and I'm going to travel the world. It's quite a cultural thing as well. For instance, I've seen a couple of colleagues doing that here in UK, whereas I don't know anyone in Portugal who would ever do that. We plan for the future, to save for when we grow older or to save for our kids. So unless you are rich, we would struggle to follow our dreams. But I do agree, life is too short, I have no clue what happens tomorrow, so I'm trying to slow down in terms of work and travel here and there.

4. Linda (China)

I've recently been thinking about quitting my job and traveling around the world for a year. And then, who knows what after that? Even though I love the company I work for, my passion is travel (among other things) and experiencing new things!

5. Cnee (China)

I've thought about quitting my job and traveling the world to learn more about myself and what I want to do with my life. But my mom believes that it is a bad idea because she thinks that I work for a great company and I should just stick to it and wait for a promotion. Currently, I am not married and have no kids. I still live with my mom and I am in my 20s. I feel like it's a good time to travel. But I was also told that it is a good time to build my career.

6. Karen (UK)

I've worked full time ever since I graduated from college (14 years), and I've travelled to 40 countries. This lifestyle isn't for everyone but if you need a change don't be afraid to take the plunge. I have met the most amazing people from all over the planet and this experience in itself is worth anything you think you will be missing. I am happy to be living life freely!

7. Emma (Canada)

I spent four months travelling through South America, followed by four months in Southeast Asia. I'm home for a few weeks until the next leg of the journey. Whether I know what's round the corner, how my career will end up, what future employers will think, one thing is for sure: I don't regret the decision at all. The type of experience you receive is so unique and will shape your ideas and perspectives on how you see yourself and the world. It influences the path you choose to take in a way that cements your happiness.(英文文本 via China Daily)
