Many people say that I'm brave for moving abroad, but everything I am is because of my Mom. The risks she's taken, the opportunities she sought, the bravery she had. Today, I interview my Mom to unpack where I gain my inspiration and bravery to live abroad. You'll hear her share her story and quickly learn why my move to Spain in 2018 was nothing compared to that of an international move in the late 70's. Picture this: my Mom is 23, and has never been on a plane before. She left her family as one of 11 (!!) children to seek out a job opportunity in Canada. This was before the internet, before smartphones or Google Maps and when making a long distance call was very expensive. She flew across an ocean to live with a family she had never met before. Check out Episode 4 to hear her full story! LOKATE Travel: www.lokatetravel.com Instagram: @lokatetravel

On Episode 2 of the LOKATE Travel podcast, I sit down with Hailey and Mauricio (also known as the Adventure Travel Couple on Instagram), a Canadian-Mexican couple living in Toronto. In 2017, they decided to leave their jobs to travel the world for a year. The plan? 27 countries in 12 months. Their goals were to eat all the food, experience all the things, and learn as much as possible about the world, themselves, and one another. In this podcast episode, we’ll uncover just how they prepared for their massive life change, if their plan carried out through the year and more importantly, what they learned and how they’re transitioning back into life in Canada.
