The World Walk (Trilogy): Lessons From A 7 Year Walk Around The World w/ Tom Turcich

What does it feel like to reach the end of an era?

Well, you’re about to find out. 

Today’s extra special episode is 6 years in the making and marks the end of Tom Turcich’s (and his dog Savannah’s) epic journey of 7 years walking across 6 continents.

In this 3-part trilogy, you will hear from Tom at the ages of 26, 30, and 33 as he shares the unique experiences and challenges that could only come from years of traveling the world by foot. 

As the 10th person (and first dog ever) to successfully walk around the world, Tom has a multitude of stories and insights that are bound to blow your mind, so you are not going to want to miss this episode. We talk about the pursuit and fulfillment of dreams, facing hardship, making sacrifices, testing limits, finding humanness, stamina, mindfulness, and so much more.

What are your biggest takeaways from this epic travel trilogy? I’d love to hear what they are and hope you will share them by sending me an audio message.
