If you think that hitting the road to travel full-time is going to be an easy task, think again.

Forbes contributor Celinne Da Costa writes about her experiences and tell it like it is, and the nitty gritty of hitting the road to travel as you like is this: 

“Here is the secret to how I was able to put aside the funds I needed to travel the world: I identified my primary passion, and I ruthlessly prioritized my life decisions to serve that passion,” notes Da Costa, adding, "It is really all about willpower."

“I was recently speaking with a colleague who was curious about how I could sustain my travel life. This colleague is a huge foodie who loves to cook and try new foods. When I told him that saving involved seriously cutting back on restaurants, he balked – it wasn’t something he believed he could do…My colleague really enjoyed travel, but he didn’t love it enough to sacrifice his commitment to cuisine,” she writes.

“In this moment, what matters most to me is traveling the world and writing about it. And so, in my daily and long-term decisions, this goal takes precedence over my other lesser goals,” concludes Da Costa.
