Description

Do you have the urge to start changing the path that you are currently on? Can you find purpose while on a pilgrimage, even if religion doesn't play a role in your everyday life?



The definition of a pilgrimage is a journey, especially a long one, made to some sacred place as an act of religious devotion but do you really have to be religious in the traditional sense to take on and gain from a pilgrimage.



I am talking to my buddy, Paul Barach, about the journey he took on Japan's Shikoku pilgrimage, the power of movement, the importance of having a purpose, and why setting goals is not just an arbitrary exercise but can actually get you to those places you want to go in the world. Plus, we get deep into why society may be built to make us miserable and what you can do about it. This and so much more is going down on today's episode thank you for joining us and I hope you not only enjoy but get something meaningful out of this episode.



Which pilgrimage has been on your bucket list and why? If you have ever been on a pilgrimage, which one and how much did religion play a part in your journey? Let me know by sending me an audio message (please) or shoot me an email over at Jason@ZeroToTravel.com.



Today's episode is being sponsored by the amazing folks over at Tortuga Backpacks which, you know, are my favorite backpacks in the world.
