    7: Why Most People Never Change After Travel

    7: Why Most People Never Change After Travel

    Creativity is the forgotten third act of transformative experience.
    This is Season 3, Part 7 of 12, in which we move into the final part of every transformative story: Creativity. Despite how seemingly transformational a travel experience might be, why is it that most people never change after their travels and instead return back to living the same life and being the same person? It's because the most overlooked part of every transformational travel experience is also the hardest. What do we do when we get home? How do we hold onto the sense of self, our travel self, that we reconnected with on the road? How do we convert the inspiration to change into actual lasting change? This episode answers all of that and more.

Inspiration at its purest form

I stumbled upon this podcast when I was going through a rut in my life. ( work,personal, etc) I listened to one episode and was hooked. I started to listen from the beginning every day in my commute and I have become so inspired to persue the life of travel that I crave. Nathaniel, you and your guests on your show have changed my life and given me hope and inspiration. Everywhere I travel I think back to a relevant episode. When I can travel on a more frequent basis I will think of where I started and that is with this podcast. I just want to say thank you. This is my #1 favorite podcast of all time. Keep inspiring 😊
