    "In the Beginning: my truly amazing, worldwide solo nomad adventure."

    "In the Beginning: my truly amazing, worldwide solo nomad adventure."

    I began podcasting in January, 2017, one year after I left the country to travel the world and before I actually named my podcasting the "In the KNOW!" show. This episode is a rerelease of my very first podcast in which I describe that travel bug, that gadfly-like travel bug that latched on to me until I could no longer ignore it.  I just had to give in to it, embrace it, even nourish it and commence my truly amazing, worldwide solo nomad adventure.
