The Daily Travel Podcast: Change Your Role in Life

Things are happening, folks. The episode with yours truly on The Daily Travel Podcast is live! It actually happened. 6 months into the travel writing game and I'm going to Germany and having my voice preserved forever on the Internet. But enough about me: let's talk about this episode, let's talk about Nathaniel, and let's talk about starting new, scary careers.

Ditch the Plane – Take the Train

Take a moment to think back to the last time you traveled by air. What was it like getting there? Finding reasonably-priced parking? Dealing with lines, gate changes, and hoping you remembered to bag all your liquids? After a few hours actually on the plane, how did you feel? Maybe miserable, cramped, frustrated, sleepy, or bored? And if you don’t shop in the petite section, bruise-kneed and highly irritable? I love airports, and I used to love flying, but more and more I’m having straight up irritating and distressing experiences. To travel home for the holidays this year, I decided to forgo that option and instead booked the cheapest sleeper ticket I could find. And now, after my first cross-country Amtrak ride, I never want to go back.
