Episode 48: All the Right Moves
Featuring Kate Ortiz
Kate Ortiz is making all the right moves—mostly because she’s turned her last two cross-country moves into epic multi-state road trips.
Not sure about you, but it sounds stressful to live on the road and move simultaneously. Where do you put all your things? Like, really? Do you take a trailer? What about when you get to where you’re going? Do you already have a job lined up? What about the costs associated with moving? Doesn’t that make it harder to actually make the most of your travels?
Kate answers all of these questions, plus so much more, live from host Laura’s driveway. She shares her account of making the most of her moves with her husband Enrique and two cats and demonstrates that it doesn’t take much to turn any travel opportunity into an unforgettable adventure.
