Zero To Travel Podcast : National Geographic Type Adventures, Lifestyle Design Like Tim Ferriss Plus Inspiration Like TED

In today's Zero To Travel Podcast, I'm bringing you episode three of Travelosophy.

In this series I share thoughtful questions around long-term travel and/or travel as a lifestyle choice for any period of time.

These questions I pose in this series have no right or wrong answer and my thoughts are my travelosophy or travel philosophy.

Listen now to find out:

How to re-invent yourself in the new year
How to create a year filled with travel
Why doing the 'opposite' could be helpful (in travel and life)
How to create a mantra or pep talk to guide you
Why being in control of your own destiny is valuable
What's happening on Thirsty Thursday's
How to break down travel goals and create structure around them
How to do everything you want to do in a year
And much more!
