Sounds like you had a plan. Maybe not a “by day 147 I will be here doing this” kind of plan, maybe more “Marrakesh… sure, Marrakesh sounds pretty cool!” If you have a plan (and a backup, and a certain mental flexibility for when things go totally sideways) then go for it. Especially if you’re single, before (or after) you have people counting on you for survival (kids or elderly parents, for example).
