Episode 049: Craving Adventure – Part 1

“You know, if I go too long without an adventure, I have to just stop and intentionally create one. I crave it.”

This week’s guest is Erin Sharaf and she went from utilizing her Master’s Degree in Integrative Medicine as a Primary Care Provider to traveling to so many countries she’s actually lost count.

“That’s part of my make-up. I’ve always, always had this wanderlust and this desire to travel.” – Erin Sharaf

At the age of 19 she became a professional figure skater and traveled for three years with different shows. She also attended a semester at sea during college and then went on to work in the medical field for nearly ten years until finally accepting that it just wasn’t what she truly wanted.

“Even when I was working the conventional jobs, I made sure to maximize my vacation time and plan at least one big adventure every year.” – Erin Sharaf

She now practices mindfulness and uses it to help guide her travels and life experiences. In today’s episode we talk about the private audience she received with Mother Teresa, her visit to the Dalai Lama’s summer home, when she summited Mount Kilimanjaro, and much more!

“It’s all about just being in the moment and the experiences that present themselves …” – Erin Sharaf
