Episode 043: The Freedom of Choice – Part 1

“The center of my mental health really was that I was not feeling very fulfilled at all in what I was doing.”

This week’s guest is Justin Light from Inky n the Brain. He has a website, podcast and YouTube channel (linked below) all of the same name and all about finding your purpose in life through travel.

Justin turned down a potential $60,000/year job and experienced a complete mind-shift after taking a several month long trip to China.

“When I went to China, the thing that changed my life was not just the experience of traveling … it was the people.” – Justin Light

Some of the topics we discuss are whether or not the Hostelworld app is really a great as it appears to be, the time he wound up in a foreign country with a broken laptop, a cellphone on the fritz, and only $.30 in his account, his tips for getting through British customs without being interrogated like he was, and the pivotal moment on his first trip that let him know he was on the right path.

“Everything is my choice and it’s absolute freedom.” – Justin Light

He also talks about his travel plans going forward and his advice for those looking to make a major change in their own life.

“This is what I want to do. I don’t want to go back. It’s all I want to do is travel and just float and meet like-minded people that escaped that normality.” – Justin Light
