Anybody who wants to BreakAway will need to overcome what I call the Big Buts: money, stuff, mortgages, commitments, kids, jobs, etc. etc. etc. These are all valid impediments. And ALL very surmountable.
Thinking the next big trip will be a family pilgrimage to Scandinavia. Or a rambling adventure in South America.
Hi. I’m Kirk. Over the past 20 years, I've taken 4 breaks ranging from 69 to 355 days, in spots spanning from Norway to New Zealand. When I'm not roaming, I teach advertising & writing and preach the gospel of sabbaticals at makeyourbreakaway.com.
I may be biased, but I think it's a great bunch of people. Lots of hearty smiles, animated conversations, and excellent connections.
