  When people hear how I quit my job as a lawyer after six years of corporate work, they assume I burned out and fled the nine-to-five (or, more accurately, the nine-to-midnight), leaving contracts, negotiations and lawsuits behind. 

  In reality, I long had aspired to travel the world for a year, inspired by a documentary I saw in high school about trans-Siberian trains. Staring at the screen, watching birch trees and snow and a railroad track running for thousands of kilometres, I resolved to take the journey from St Petersburg to Mongolia’s Ulaanbaatar myself. Almost a decade later, those trains were a huge part of why I gave notice at my law firm to do a round-the-world trip, but over the years, my fantasy trip to Siberia had morphed into a trip to... everywhere. I wanted to see as much of the world as I could in a year. I expected to return to practicing law thereafter, hopefully working in the public sector instead of a private firm.


  当人们听到作为律师过了六年朝九晚五生活的我决定决定辞职时,他们认为我疯掉了,逃离朝九晚五、合同、谈判、控诉的生活。

  实际上,我一直渴望着环游世界一年,灵感来自一个我看到在高中的纪录片横贯西伯利亚列车。盯着屏幕,看着桦树、大雪和远去几千公里的火车轨迹,我决定从圣彼得堡到蒙古的乌兰巴托开启我的旅程。也许十年之后,那些火车仍然是我为什么给公司通知去环游世界的原因。但是这些年我幻想的旅行由去西伯利亚变换到了每一个地方。我想在一年的时间里尽我所能去看看世界。我希望回去后练习法律,然后充满希望的在公营企业工作,而不是私人公司。
