'Take the road less traveled'. We've all heard it. But what does it mean? Why should we? Wouldn't we be better off on the safe route that we know is going to end well.
Well, that's one way to look at it, sure, but can you name an adventure you've had on your way to the office? Or in line at the post office?
Adventure comes in all shapes and sizes. To some people, adventure is going into the ocean for the first time- taking that first step in and conquering both land and water. For others, it's hiking solo up one of the tallest mountains in the world. For some, it's trying to write the address on a letter while you're already in line at the post office.
The thing about travelers is that we seem to instinctively seek adventure in whatever form, so when we're given a choice of two roads, there's a likely winner, and this is one of the things that truly make us just that- travelers.
Our guest for this, probably my favourite episode so far, is Nathaniel Boyle from The Travelers podcast and Holocene (both of which I strongly recommend checking out- links down below), and he's come prepared with giant bags of wisdom, and an amazing adventure recount up his sleeve.
As always, he is accompanied by original music that really allows the story to come to life and take us along the journey with Nathaniel. Hats off again to our composer, Cody Crabb, for providing some great original music.
