Have you ever moved off somewhere on impulse?
Advertisements [?]
Have you ever just packed up and moved off somewhere on impulse or essentially on impulse? Especially somewhere you had little or no connections to, and initially no place to live, a job, etc.?

If you have, I would love to hear your story/stories. Was it the best decision you ever made, the worst mistake of your life, or something in-between? What caused you to make the decision to jet out and start over? Did things go like you thought they would or was it much different? If you had the chance to do it again, would you?

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm just looking for some perspectives. I won't go into all the details for now, but getting out on my own and trying to find my way and all that this entails has been on my mind a good deal lately. I just can't decide if doing something rash like heading out on my own with nothing planned or in place is something worth doing if I have the opportunity to or just an illogically impulsive mistake.
