Follow your passion, live the dream.

In episode #7 Lainie & Miro take time to honor the friendships they’ve made on their travels as well as reflect together on some of the inner changes that have taken place over the last 400+ days. This episode includes Miro and Lainie’s thoughts on saying goodbyes, living from a source of passion and honoring friendships. Lastly, Miro answers a question about his favorite dish, discovered in Guatemala.

“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.”

~Henry David Thoreau

As this month closes, Miro and Lainie have been reflecting on their experiences in Antigua, Guatemala and on the road in general. Their 400+ days of travel has been transformational for the both of them, and as they near the end of their stay in Guatemala, they both reflect on what some of the experiences mean to them. Lainie has written several blog posts on emotional healing and transformation as a result of their chosen lifestyle over the past month, on subjects like saying goodbye, power of perception and being creative, inspired through travel.

Next, Miro interviews, Chris Gwinner from the blog Life Without Reverse. He’s a recent Guatemala transplant, motorcycle guide and follower of his passions.

Listen to Miro interview Chris, about living his passion within the context of travel. Chris shares his candid thoughts on being a traveler and choosing a life that is in sync with his inspiration. Also, stay tuned to hear the wonderful advice Chris offers to  Miro, as he continues his trek around the globe.

So what’s tasty there, in Guatemala?

Last, Miro answers listener question from David from Los Angeles, inquiring about what is one of the favorite foods discovered while on their travels. Pupusas of course!!! Listen as Miro shares his thoughts on this tasty treat. Yum!

    Thank you Miro for interviewing my brother Chris! It was great to hear about your shared experiences (and great to hear his voice). Lainie, thanks for hosting Chris as he began his journey. I look forward to reading more about your adventures!

    Rosie!nThank you so much for your comments! I agree, think Miro did a great job interviewing him. And yes, it was a pleasure hosting Chris. We think of him as family too. 😉

    Incredible job on the entire blog, especially when you guys interviewed my nephew, Chris. It sounds like he’s being a great ambassador representing our family. Piper, our 11 year old son misses him very much and I know Chris misses him too. It sounds like Miro was a great, albeit temporary, substitute. Note that a couch is always open for you at our home in Georgia, U.S.A.

    I absolutely LOVE your website! Miro, great job on the interview with Chris! Definitely try to keep up with the journal. It’s one of those things that you can only appreciate many years later. And make sure he teaches you ALL of his card tricks! 🙂

    Maryann, thank you so much! I agree, keep nudging Miro to write a little, but actually he’s been working on stories instead. All in good time, I supposed. Chris has actually taught Miro many card tricks. He’s getting quite good too!
