Take Your Big Trip (TM) is a resource site for travelers - specifically mid-career professionals - looking to take time off and travel the world.
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
I have helped hundreds of travelers 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.
You can find advice on Medium and travel inspiration and guidance on Instagram. You can also contact me at kristin (a) takeyourbigtrip.com with questions.
