Hero's Journey

I’ve spent the last three years of my life on a spiritual quest to heal pieces of my soul that have been broken. Before we embarked on this “trip of a lifetime,” I realized I was living my life on auto pilot. I was living like a robot; without much depth or emotion. Life wasn’t that meaningful.

FInding Peace

It’s not easy quitting your job for a life of travel. When you’re not on the road, it’s easy to have a routine and do things that are familiar. Life while traveling long term is very different.
