I'm 26 and cannot shake this itch to travel

For about 5 years I have had an itch to move somewhere completely new and try my hand at something completely new in a different culture. Should I?

I actually have quite a good setup right now. I am good at what I do and am moving up the career ladder at a company I have been at for 3 years. The problem is that I am finding myself increasingly bored and unsatisfied. For 5 years or so I have chocked this up to me being young and in my twenties and have thought that it will pass. Well, it hasn't, it has actually gotten more extreme.
I have an itch to drop everything and move overseas for a while. Or, to simply travel for a year. I have been checking into what it would take to teach English overseas and it seems like a lot of people have done that. I don't want to have another 5 more years go by and realize that I have moved up the career ladder, but am still quite unsatisfied. I'm young, nothing to lose, I feel like now is the time to do crazy things like this.
Has anybody done something like this? How easy is it to become an English teacher overseas? Any advice would help. Thanks.
