Active 2010 to 2016, Take Your Big Trip was a resource site for travelers - specifically mid-career professionals - looking to live their travel dreams and travel the world.
I started this blog because from 2008 to 2010, I lived my dream of traveling around the world, and I wanted to help others do the same. I found that my career did not go into a black hole, I didn't need to win the lottery, and these big trips gave me courage and faith to live all of my dreams
In the five years that I ran this blog, I helped hundreds of dreamers take their own big trips. In addition to the articles, I spoke at many events in the Bay Area and gave a "Take Your Big Trip: Make a Plan to Travel the World" workshop at SXSW '15 Interactive in Austin.
I've retired the blog now, but hope that you still consider living your travel dreams. The how to is this: envision it, plan it, and take off. All else falls into place.
You can still find Take Your Big Trip travel inspiration and guidance on Facebook and Instagram.
