Episode 115. "It can be done. You can bring the travel adventure home.” ~Lisette Austin
Traveling is a state of mind - especially during a pandemic. And free access is awarded to those who think outside the box. Lisette Austin takes that axiom and spins it into COVID comfort for those suffering from acute wanderlust. Before she gifts us with her stay-put suggestions and addictive optimism, however…
Allow me to cry into my teacup for a moment. Chances are if you’re an avid traveler (or were an avid traveler) before COVID, you’re doing some crying of your own -- perhaps into a different beverage but tears all the same. There’s a frivolous kind of torture that XXX my soul every time I hear a jet engine roar overhead. Planes crisscross the sky all day long - but no one’s going anywhere. Especially not me. Or you. Unless you’re lucky enough to live beyond the restrictions imposed on US passport holders.
So what’s a globetrotter to do when the world’s in timeout?
Jet Set Lisette as she’s known to her podcast audience and travel-hack students has some ideas, and they all begin with this question: what is the thing inside us that makes travel feel so important? The answer, she says, strips away all the admittedly fun distractions that add flavor to our trips and reconnects us to our heart-centered motivation.
Is there a salve that recreates the adventure and connectedness of travel? “Travel can feel like this amazing, quick vehicle for those kinds of experiences,” says Lisette. By identifying core motivations and using those as prompts, pouty armchair travelers (with teacups in hand) will land on resourceful ways to bring the feeling home and pass the time until the world opens up again.
