273: It's Time for a Road Trip

"A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving" - Lao Tzu

The weekend is here and even though I always tell you to experience the weekend freedom daily I understand that not everyone heeds that advice.  Today, after talking about work all week, I wanted to talk about the freedom of travel

When you plan for weeks to go to a different part of the world there is an untold excitement for you.  You don't have to go far away to experience that feeling.  Take a road trip; get in your car and just drive to wherever the road takes you.

In this episode I talk all about the benefits of getting away from all that you know, leaving schedules and responsibilities and just having an adventure.
