What was Your Main Motivation for Going Mobile?
I’ve always had a love of travel and a sense of adventure, and I wanted to explore the world with my husband before settling down and having kids.
What is Your Favorite Aspect of Living on the Go?
I’m a HUGE fan of change! That’s why as a professional, agency-life really suited me. I was always working on different accounts and projects. It’s also why Kevin and I have made a business out of helping small businesses embrace and drive positive change. Change is a good thing – it makes you stronger. Plus, I don’t like doing the same thing each day, so life on the road gave me an opportunity to keep it fresh, and now living in Europe we have so many places to explore. There are no two days a like because the landscape is always different!
What was the Biggest Sacrifice You Made to go Mobile?
Well, I made a lot of sacrifices but I don’t think I really care about many of them. I mean I was sad to see my chocolate leather couch go, my oak dining room set with 8 chairs and a few other nice things we had. But after all they are just things and we can always get new things when we settle down. I think the biggest sacrifice is being away from my family. I am really close to my parents and my sisters, and I get homesick sometimes. Also, I often feel like we are in a constant state of good bye – and sometimes I get sad saying farewell to people I meet along the way.
What’s Your Biggest Challenge Living in a Constant State of Travel?
I move at the speed of light and I have very little patience – a personal flaw that I’m always working on. When you travel things move slower and take longer, and there is always something that goes wrong – so my biggest challenge is just sitting back and enjoying the ride. I have to remember that the destination is only a small part of the adventure, the main part is the journey it takes to get there.
What Places do You Want to Visit the Most?
I haven’t seen much of the States so I’m looking forward to all of it, but I am really excited to head North West. I really want to visit Yellow Stone National Forrest, Washington State and Colorado, and some day I hope we make it as far as Alaska. Now that we are in Europe, I have a list a mile long. I don’t know where to start first, Lisbon, Portugal, Istanbul, Turkey, Morocco, Africa, Budapest, Hungary. I’m just stoked about using the rail system and couch surfing to see new sites and cultures.
Where Else Have You Traveled?
I’ve done a lot of international travel and have been to 11 foreign countries excluding Spain and the US, including Argentina, Canada, Cost Rica, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Panama, Peru, The Netherlands, and Switzerland. In the US and US territories I have been to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, California, Tennessee, North and South Carolina, Ohio, and Illinois. I’ve driven or flew through a few others, but I don’t know if that really counts. : )
