Ask the Travel Coach! Real-World Advice for Long-Term Travel

Travel Coach Tara RussellQuestions about travel are a little bit like snowflakes: No two trips—or travelers for that matter—are ever exactly alike.

That’s why, when you’re trying to determine the right time in your life to schedule a career break, the best way to squeeze all of your dream destinations into just six months or how exactly you’re going to break the news to your boss/parents/friends/live-in boyfriend, it’s essential to get feedback from someone who’s really knows what they’re talking about.

Enter Tara Russell, CPCC and CDC, a “Life Sabbatical & Long Term Travel Coach,” and the expert behind the Lost Girls’ new column “Ask the Travel Coach.” She’s passionate about working with men and women—at every life stage—who dream of taking time off to travel, life, work, study or volunteer abroad. While Tara typically does one-on-one travel coaching we’re psyched that each month on LGW, she’ll also be addressing on some of the more common questions, concerns and fears faced by those of us dreaming about or planning extended adventures.
