Unjustified Fears That Nearly Stopped Us From Traveling

Here's a secret: 10 months ago, we almost didn't travel. Why? Fears that turned out to be unjustified. Are any of these stopping you from living a life of travel?

Full Show Script

  • EVO: This is it. This is the final mini, interstitial show. Next week, I am stoked to announce, will be the first episode of season two of The Opportunistic Travelers Podcast.

  • SHE: Thank you so much for staying subscribed to the show during our break. We really enjoyed producing these mini episodes, but we're really looking forward to sharing with you the outstanding content we've been collecting the last few months.

  • EVO: November 3rd -- hey, that's my mom's birthday. Happy birthday, Mom! -- is when Season Two starts, and the show goes back to the way it was. Sort of. We're making some changes that hopefully, you won't notice, all designed to make the show that much more enjoyable every week.

  • SHE: On this episode, we're going back to the beginning. Before that, actually, back in November, when we'd made the decision to leave but really had no idea where we were going. We talked about our fears during a road trip to San Diego.

  • SHE: Getting sick? Check. Four doctor visits. Lost grandparents? Check. 

  • EVO: Making money on the road? Semi-check. Still working on that, and we're still looking for Chapter Next, which hopefully extends our travels.

  • SHE: Again, thanks for sticking with us. Tell all your friends to subscribe and get ready as we launch Season Two of The Opportunistic Travelers. The first episode drops next week, and it's going to be awesome!

  • EVO: Cheers from... the world!

  • SHE: Funding for our endless world tour is provided, oddly enough, by postcards.

  • EVO: Give us five bucks, and we'll send you a postcard from our travels abroad every single month. Get on the list at ShEvo.wtf/postcards

  • SHE: And we save a ton of money by housesitting. It's free and beats living in hotels. Want super cool people like us looking after your pets and property while you're traveling? Visit ShEvo.wtf/stayforfree to register, either as a housesitter or a home owner. We do it, and we love it! Thanks for listening to this episode. I’m Sheila Dee. 

  • EVO: And I am Evo Terra. Our theme music is by Kevin MacLeod at incompetech.com. All other sounds, voices, and odd bits you hear were most likely created or captured by us. Visit ShEvo.wtf to get more goodness from us and to see where opportunity will take us next. Thanks for again for listening and tell a friend about us. Now would be good.


New episodes of the The Opportunistic Travelers Podcast are available every Tuesday. Of course, Tuesday can be a very different thing depending on where we are in the world. Cheers!"
