    Transition To Travel: From Big Salary To Frugal Travel Life

    Transition To Travel: From Big Salary To Frugal Travel Life

    Do you have dreams of long-term travel? What are you willing to "give up" in pursuit of it?
     
    Today's guest is Becca Hall who shares how she gave up a high paying corporate job for a life of indefinite travel. This is another episode in my series called Transition To Travel where we speak to the guest right before they leave to start traveling and then again at least a year or more into the journey. Becca shares the psychology of why she pretended to not have any money, how she cut back to save up for this lifestyle of travel, what she would do differently if she could back in time, and tips and tricks for fellow solo female travelers out there. This is only a small amount of everything we get into today so grab your favorite beverage, relax, and enjoy my honest and very real chat with Becca Hall.
     
    I love these labor of love episodes and I hope you do too!
     
    What surprised you the most in Becca's journey? What was your biggest takeaway from today's episode? Let me know by sending me an audio message (please) or shoot me an email over at Jason@ZeroToTravel.com.

Opening Travel for All

This is very great podcast, Jason has been opening the lens of travel that includes women and People of Color. I really enjoyed the recent Interview with Nanjala Nyabola. Inclusion and broadening the world of travel is so important. Amplifying other cultures, talking about sustainability during travel and giving a voice to others is what I appreciate the most on Jason’s podcast.

Awesome host and awesome podcast

Jason is such a fabulous person and podcaster. He is naturally curious, so that makes him exceptionally good at interviewing his guests. The podcast episodes are a wonderful mix of travel, work, life, philosophy and practical tips. This is a must for anyone who wants to live life on their own terms — and have travel as a piece of that life puzzle. Subscribe to this show … you won’t regret it!

Jason is the best!

I’ve never taken the time to review anything, but this guy captures me! Jason is so genuine and spunky, and is just a joy to listen to. I love Jason’s enthusiasm!!! Just give a listen if you’re at all interested in being cheered up, or if you happen to like travel :-)

In a time when travel is so restricted, Zero to Travel helps keeps the dream alive.

Please don’t ever stop the podcast, Jason, or we’ll have to come to Norway and stalk all the coffee shops, haha (totally kidding).
