Show Notes


After an almost six month break, we are back recording our travel podcast. We didn’t intend to be away for that long.

We are firm believers in “do the best from where you are with what you have.”

And that was been 2020 for us. Our bandwidth was limited, our stress levels high, and our challenges were numerous.

I guess it just all got to much for us and we took a step back.

It was a powerful step. It helped us gain clarity, cull, cut back, refine and grow our strength muscles to rebuild.

2021 has started off well for us. We’re definitely revitalized and refreshed and have a LOT more bandwidth. Thankfully, we’re now able to outsource a few of the burdensome tasks we had to take on ourselves due to the travel industry stopping.

We’re excited to bring back travel stories to you!

We did mention in the podcast, that we’d be sharing our podcast in video form. We had video malfunction when recording this episode, so wait until Episode 29!!

We discuss:

  • The overwhelm of 2020
  • Coming out of the darkness and feeling more positive in 2021
  • The tremendous growth of This is Raleigh
  • The ease of growing a niche site compared to a global travel blog
  • Getting recognized on the streets twice in one day!
  • How nomadic travel forces you to be open and friendly
  • Finding purpose in blogging again and using it to help people and community
  • Starting to hire and outsource again to relive some of the burden
  • Travel plans for the rest of the year – Europe pushed back to 2022. Be sure to leave your D.C. with kids’ tips in the comments
  • Upgrading and updating the blog and creating useful resource guides
  • What’s coming up on the podcast
