I recorded not one, but THREE podcasts in a day! One was an interview of me for the Caleb Wojcik Show. The other was an interview for the seanwes podcast with Caleb Wojcik as a guest. Both the episode of me on Caleb’s show, and Caleb on my podcast, will publish on Friday.
The third podcast was completely unexpected. Calvin Rosser sent me a DM on Instagram asking if I was going to be in Encinitas any time soon and, little did he know, that’s exactly where I was went he sent the message! Sabbatical serendipity.
He ended up showing us a nearby meditation garden, and I recorded part of our conversation together. We talked about ridding oneself of guilt when not working. I think you’ll really enjoy the conversation (it publishes on Thursday).
We also moved out of our first AirBnb. We’re still in San Diego for another week though. Later in the vlog, we visit Coronado Island.
We took a bus from the airport to our AirBnb in San Diego. Everything we had was in the packs on our backs.
Walking down the street, I felt light with freedom. We can do anything and go anywhere! Granted, we still had sizable packs on our backs, but their anti-gravity load dispersal systems meant we hardly noticed the weight.
It doesn’t even matter if we forgot something. There are stores no matter where you go. You can always pick something up if you need to. You really don’t need as much as you think.
We’ve only been out of our home state one day, and already I’m feeling an immense sense of gratitude. I have no doubt solo travel brings its own treasures and rewards, but I feel so fortunate to share this journey with my wife.
Last year, I wasn’t sure if there would be a Laci in 2020. It’s such a gift to get to enjoy this sabbatical together.
We’re having so much fun and can’t wait to share more with you in the next vlog.
Our sabbatical adventures will begin in sunny San Diego, California. We have our first place booked for one week (a little Airbnb), but beyond that, we have absolutely no plans… and it’s pretty exhilarating.
We might get another Airbnb the second week, or we might stay with you. Or maybe we decide to go to Los Angeles… or maybe we meet some people going to Yosemite—who knows!
Think of this “itinerary” as more of a guideline. Nothing is set in stone, and we don’t HAVE to follow any specific plans, but this is what we’re thinking right now. We’re guessing we’ll stay in each place something like 2 weeks on average. If we love hanging out in a particular city, and want to stay longer, cool. If we feel like moving on, cool. That’s the beauty of not having any obligations.
If you want to host us, we’d love for you to get in touch on our Host Us page. It doesn’t have to be one of the cities listed—we’re open to other locations!
