Episode 15: Anatomy of a Road Trip
Featuring Anna Brones, Sarah Menzies, Kristin Blanton, Sarah Uhl, and Nic Annette Miller
What makes a road trip? We wanted to know. So when five women departed for Marfa, Texas from various parts of the States, we sent out a couple of field recorders and asked these creatively-driven women to record their experiences along the way. Because between Point A and Point B-- detached from our standard routine, a lot of transformative and beautiful moments can take place.
This immersive episode is all about bringing you along for the ride, so buckle up and get ready to experience the road through the eyes and ears of traveling, creative women.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
What it’s like to road trip with friends (and strangers)
How you decide what direction to take on an open road trip
The importance (and benefits!) of going slow while traveling
The ways road trips allow us to open our minds and find inspiration
How a sense of place can have such a strong pull in our lives
Thoughts on engaging with local communities while traveling
What you can let go of when you leave on a road trip
A special bonus car song by Anna Brones
