Don’t wait until the sun set of your life to travel the world!

Don’t wait until the sun set of your life to travel the world!

Welcome back to the Hashtag 59 podcast!

First a reminder: Our long form podcasts are now released on the last day of each month.
We also are doing shorter form podcast profiles of our guests prior to each release!

This month we are discussing a perfect travel consideration for the new year. The idea of taking a sabbatical or a mini retirement.
We talk about the benefits of global travel, the adventures each of us have taken and why we want to continue to do so, how to take a sabbatical, what constitutes a mini retirement, and much more!

We have two special guests joining us on the conversation to discuss the art of slow travel, taking a sabbatical, and what the heck we mean by a retirement podcast.
These two special guests take a sabbatical every ten years so they are well versed in the ins and the outs of it and combined the four of us have been to over 100 countries!

We hope you enjoy the Sabbatical/Mini Retirement Podcast!
