Transition To Travel with Lance Wright

Zero To Travel Podcast

Sports & Recreation

We are here with another episode in our transition to travel series where we have an interview with a guest prior to their travels and then one after (or during if it is long term) so that we can see how travel can change people. Today we are talking with my friend and Location Indie member, Lance Wright from The Midlife Traveler, who took a leave of absence from his higher education career to travel the world. We did the first interview about 3 weeks into his trip and the second interview after his trip (about 8 months later) and we get to see if he went back to his job, how he integrated back into his "normal" life, how his wife of 25 years dealt with being gone, and all the tips and tricks of travel & travel planning he learned along the way.I love these labor of love episodes and I hope you do too!Would you ever take a solo trip even if you are a part of a couple? What has been your biggest transition to travel moment?  Send me an audio message or shoot me an email over at Jason@ZeroToTravel.com.Check out the full show notes with all the links discussed here!I am so excited to partner with HomeExchange.com who makes it possible to see the world without paying for accommodations.
