Four of Our Favorite Sources of Travel Inspiration

We recommended the movie 180° South to a couple friends the other day … and now they’re considering an extended trip and maybe even a drastic lifestyle change.  We couldn’t be happier for them — if they move someplace exotic, it’s one more fun place for us to visit. Here are four of our favorite sources of travel inspiration.

180° south, @180south

Definitely watch this movie if you feel a little stuck in your current life.  Adventure is good; embrace it.  And it’s not going to go as you planned it.

Rolf Potts, Vagabonding, @rolfpotts

Vagabonding is a great read and was our introduction into extended, exotic travel.

Tim Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek, @tferriss

Premise of the book: take your dream lifestyle, figure out how much it costs, figure out how to earn that money with as little concentrated effort as possible, live dream life, repeat.  A great book.

Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire

Edward Abbey was the inspiration for our canyon country road trip honeymoon. Desert Solitaire is amazing.
