When travel becomes your life, sometimes it can get a little tiring.
It may sound absurd and we know how lucky we are, but travel burnout is a real thing and today Jason, Heather, and myself sit down to a roundtable discussion on the topic.
We talk about specific instances of travel burnout and how you can start to see the signs. Tips and tricks on how to avoid burnout are also discussed along with some great backstory on our new project, Location Indie.
Have you ever experienced travel burnout? What did you do to remedy the situation?

What do you guys do with your house in Philadelphia when you’re gone for months at a time?
@Samantha- We actually rent our house out in Philly fulltime right now, so when we do come “home”, we don’t have a place. That is by far the hardest part of traveling, not even having your own place when you come home. This year, we’re trying to figure out a way to have our own place at home when we come home, but somehow rent it out while we are on the road.
Our biggest issue is that a 4 bedroom house in the suburbs isn’t conducive to short term rentals, so basically, we’re not sure what we’ll be doing in the future!
Love it! I definitely had a bit of a freakout going to Montana for two weeks by myself once, though my Mom came out to meet me. It was the perfect freak-out antidote and we had a blast.
@Denise- Yeah, sometimes, it’s just too much. Everyone has their “travel freakouts” who travel often, it’s just part of the game. Why were you going to Montana of all places for two weeks?
