The Simplifiers Podcast banner/post image

It’s the summertime, which means it’s time to create more adventures in your life! I don’t know about you but after the last couple of years of pandemic life, this summer I’m ITCHING to travel. If you are too, this episode is definitely for you!

My special guest today is travel agent Bridget Scotti and she’s simplifying how to create more adventures in your life. Really, (the way I look at it) it’s all about how to create more spontaneity in our over-scheduled lives. And so, Bridget shares her insider secrets on how to do it. In her words, “life’s hard, vacations shouldn’t be,” – throughout this conversation we talk about the concept of “letting go” this summer, giving yourself a little permission to evoke your inner child-like playful spirit with a bit of adventure, exploration and fun. 

Here’s how. 


My special guest today is Bridget Scotti and she’s simplifying how to create more adventures in your life.

We tackle and simplify all aspects of it, including:

  • Why she believes it’s so important to have more spontaneity in your life, especially through travel and exploration
  • How you can determine your level of comfort in travel and your appetite for risk when it comes to adventuring and taking trips
  • A few practical tips that would help you plan an epic road trip this summer
  • Have you heard of this yet? How “surprise destination travel planning” works and what types of trips she plans for her clients all over the US
  • …and ultimately, she gave us some valuable insight and tips for solo travel, especially if you’re a woman traveling alone this summer. How to stay safe, have fun, and see new sights on your own.

All this month, we are focused on the theme of “Adventure + Play” to shake things up a bit… bring a lighter energy to the podcast and to our earbuds.

I’m imagining you guys listening to this podcast on a road trip to a new place right now… and it makes me smile from ear-to-ear!
