26 ARR RAW: Travel Emotions, Paying Your Bills & Best Border Crossings

ARR RAW Round Table Discussions With Motorcycle Adventure Travellers - Featuring Grant Johnson, Brian Rix, Shirley Hardy-Rix, Sam Manicom, Graham Field and Jim Martin. 


ARR RAW February 2018 Topics:
When you're on a trip, you still need to look after home responsibilities, how do you do that when far from home? Have you ever had an "aha moment", when you realize just why you're doing this crazy trip? And sometimes travel can be a bit much and you start thinking about getting back home, should you end your trip? And what about border crossings? Are they really that scary?


Border Crossings: Which countries are easiest to get in to, for people that are concerned about border crossings, the hassle, etc?

Keep Travelling or Go Home?: Did you ever have a moment where you thought, 'I just want to go home!' 

Aha Moments: Describe a moment from a trip where that moment inspired you to think 'Yes! This is why I'm out doing this!' 

Listener’s Question: Dealing With Normal Life While on an Adventure

Mike Samsen: How do you deal with all the details of so called "normal" life while on an extended trip...house rental, mail, bills, prescriptions, etc?
