On the Road

We're about to make the 22 hour drive from Atlanta to Colorado Springs to speak at this year's Tiny House Jamboree, and we can't wait. The best trips of our lives have been ones where we travel great distances by rail or by road, and this one couldn't come at a better time.

Traveling long distances affords all of us the magical (yes, magical!) opportunity to become adventurers- the chance to live out a fantasy we might only daydream about while confined to the monotony of our 9-5 jobs.

We're not here to knock the merit of stability or practicality, but we absolutely want to remind you to take a break from it every now and then. Do something unpredictable. Get in your car and go somewhere you've never been before. And while you're getting there, listen to an adventure-inspiring soundtrack.

Music has been proven to activate buried regions of the brain that store memories (perhaps the reason why you can hear a song and instantly remember both how and when it made you feel something incredibly specific #helloawkwardmiddleschoolmemories). This memory-making-magic is exactly why I love making playlists for trips, like the one below. If you're about to embark on your own journey, or just want to go on a virtual vacation over your lunch break, take a listen.

Breathe. Relax. Enjoy your journey (real, or imaginary).
