Take on a Big Physical Challenge - Walking the Camino de Santiago (Episode #34 with Hillary Vandenbos)
We are currently in the midst of our own 5 week, 509km (300 mile) walk along the Turkish coast and are enjoying the peace and comfort that comes from getting away and enjoying being close to nature. Today we're talking about the benefits of taking a nice long walk…one that takes weeks instead of hours.
Long walks give us the opportunity to reconnect both with each other, as well as ourselves. We can walk for hours a day talking, thinking, and imagining the future. In our last walk we made some crazy plans (more on that in the podcast) and looking forward to what comes out of this adventure.
We are delighted to talk with Hillary Augustine in this episode. She has been called an innovator, poet, wordsmith, cultural engineer, and financial energizer. She works with innovators and cultural creatives to excavate stuck places and mobilize people towards wholeness and internal financial resonance.

There's a lot more to finishing a big race, walk, ride, or climb than bragging rights. It's the kind of feat that fuels your confidence in every area of your life.
Today is the start to our next big adventure, walking the 509 km (300 miles) of the Lycian Way in Turkey. We were lucky to connect with the woman who first linked all these ancient paths in Turkey together into one long journey, and she's here today to talk about why she did it and what you can get out of a big physical endeavor.
Our guest is Kate Clow, the originator of the Lycian Way, Turkey's first long-distance walking route as well as the St Paul Trail, in the Taurus mountains. She is British & Turkish and has been exploring Turkey's mountains for 20 years. She is currently the head of the Culture Routes Society, a Turkish charity dedicated to making new routes, preserving old roads and assisting villagers along the routes to benefit from sustainable tourism. Kate Clow's book, The Lycian Way: Turkey's First Long Distance Walking Route, is available on Amazon and directly via CultureRoutesInTurkey.com. It is the definitive guide to hiking this epic route along the coast of Turkey. Kate, we both truly appreciate your time and dedication to introducing us to this new adventure.

Episode #31 is coming to you from Istanbul, Turkey: Today we're talking about how to merge your experience and goals to build a dream.
You don't have to start from scratch or throw out your past to create a new future. Most of what has gone into building who you are now can be repurposed to create what you want to be in the future.
Our guest today is Nathan Agin, a seasoned actor who has now gone into producer mode to create and host a television show about finding healthy food no matter where you are. Nathan has figured out how to be healthy anywhere, and is sharing his insights on how he went from actor, to world traveler, to starting his own cooking show.

Starting something big is a time filled with excitement, fear, joy, fun, and endless possibilities. We're talking about the moment when you commit to a big life change (going after a big dream) and the emotions and considerations that go into it.
To help us explore this subject, we're joined on the show by a couple who have just begun their own big dream. Canadians Andrew Matheson and Alison Cornford-Matheson are the brains behind Cheeseweb.eu, a site dedicated to English-speaking expats living in Belgium. They recently decided to change their lives completely and travel the world in an RV with their 2 cats, Orange and Buddy. You can follow their planning and adventure at CamperCats.com as they march towards a 2016 departure date. They are also a great example of how our book, Dream Save Do, can help define and take the steps towards your own big life change as they are proof that it works.
We should also point out that we were able to interview them them in person at their beautiful home in Brussels as we sipped Belgian beers (tactfully removed for the pictures). Listen in as we dive head first into the minds of two dreamers.
