In February of this year we were honoured to appear for our first radio interview over at Adventure Rider Radio and, thanks to the talents of Jim and Elizabeth, we sound halfway knowledgeable!
From the site:
As so often happens in life, we get caught up in what society expects us to do. Get a good education, get a good job, buy a house, have the right furniture, clothes, gadgets… and so on. We are expected to live our life in the “normal” way. In the western culture, if you don’t have the big house and fancy cars, and everything that goes along with it, including debt and stress, well… you just aren’t living. We think we need or want those things, that they will make us happy.
But, as many studies have shown, life experience makes you happier than acquiring material things. Even those experiences which may be uncomfortable to us in the moment, make us feel more fulfilled. We may turn them into funny stories or see them as a valuable learning experience. And stories, more than material things, are what connect us to other people. Because who doesn’t love a good story?
Issa and Nita Breibish felt that something was missing in their life, and the more they thought about it, the more they felt they needed to do something about it. They decided to sell everything and turn their material things into experiences. After some planning, they left on a trip which would become an education in life for them. They haven’t rushed from place to place, they have taken the time to spend with the people and cultures they came across. Issa and Nita feel that time spent in one place has more value than tallying up the countries they have visited or how many miles they have travelled. And having had the time of their life, they are ready to hit the road again as soon as they can and to, as Nita says, not worry about getting from A to Z in an allotted time, but just meander from A to D.
