Where is the Staying Adventurous Podcast Heading Next?

the staying adventurous podcast logoWe are starting with a look inside Costa Rica, since Costa Rica was Craig’s first trip on his 11-month travel sabbatical that completely changed his life.  The podcast discusses his most recent trip and focuses on the reminder to Stay Pura Vida. Afterwards you can expect a podcast every month starting in the fall of 2015. The podcast will explore everything from lesser visited destinations such as US state capitals to iconic places such as the Greek Island of Santorini. Of course we will also spend plenty of time inside Mexico too.

There is so much for the world to experience, but now with the Staying Adventurous Podcast along with his the Travel Photography and posts, you will find yourself focusing on the adventure aspect of life and always aim to stay adventurous not just when traveling, but in life’s everyday.
