117- Keep Moving Fast
Today on the show we have Adam Dailey from Keep Moving Fast to tell us about his family’s adventure, taking 1 year off with 4 young kids as they set out to see the world.
Adam says it struck him on a business trip that he was tired of traveling, especially without his family. So, inspired by the magazine in the back of the pocket of the plane, He decided to go all in and take one year off with his family.
They used airline miles to purchase tickets almost around the globe, the big leaps anyways. The smaller, more local flights were cheap enough and they just paid for those as they needed them. With accommodation and food the whole trip tallied up to just under 100k for a year. Adam was amazed at how much they were able to see and where they could go on almost the same amount it cost to live at home.
Biggest adjustment was coming home. We all think you can switch back to “normal” life but in reality this kind of adventure changes you and we all need the down time to transition back. Adam was amazed to realize the same effort used for sightseeing and adventuring is the same for mundane things like picking out beds and buying pots & pans. Point is: It takes work/energy to get back in to a normal routine….allow yourself time for that :)
