Quitting your job to tour the world?

Quitting your job to tour the world?

Have you ever caught yourself sitting in traffic, wanting to get on a plane and escape to an exotic destination? Maybe Mongolia? Perhaps Russia? Even North Korea? Damian Gatsby from New Zealand did just that last year; quitting his job, boarding a plane, and living from his backpack ever since. Gavin Shoebridge caught up with him on while he made his way across Slovakia in order to ask him why he's doing it, where he's off to next, and what happens with things go wrong.
