How To Create A Life Of Travel By Being Open w/ Joe Esten

What does it mean to create a life of travel?
This episode dives into the story of loyal listener and world traveler Joe Esten, whose journey started when he traveled to Namibia for the Peace Corps in 2015. What Joe didn’t realize at the time was how his experiences were helping him manifest his future travels, working for Norwegian Cruise Lines and teaching English in China.

If you want to know how being open to unexpected opportunities and new experiences will help you become a travel Swiss Army knife, then you don’t want to miss this episode.
Do you have any tricks for transitioning back into stationary life after a stint of long-term travel? I’d love to more about them and hope you will share by sending me an audio message.
