NancyandShawnPower.com Weekly Wrap: Week of August 15th, 2011

NancyandShawnPower.com's Weekly Wrap Logo

It’s been an interesting week around the “Power’s” house this week…

…in preparation for our 4+ month journey that starts with 5-6 weeks in Hawaii (in less then 2 weeks) we’ve been getting rid of everything… literally!! 🙂

Another garage sale (our 4th & last) and a couple of trips to the local charity this week… we’re almost cleaned out here besides the couple of suitcases we’re traveling with and the few pictures and momentos that’ll be stored.

And we have to say, it’s very freeing!! 🙂

We’re taking our advice that we wrote about in our Free eBook (titled STOP collecting Stuff and Start Creating Memories: 9 Great Reasons to Travel Now) to the extreme. 🙂

Now of course, to get all the great benefits of travel you don’t have to flip your life upside down as we’re doing… although its not a bad idea! 🙂

Just make sure you get away once or more every year and start collecting those memories that you’ll cherish forever!!

Alright, enough of the life lessons for now… we’ll be sharing more of “our story” on our blog in the weeks to come

…till then, here’s what happened this week on NancyandShawnPower.com:

    WoW. That is incredible. When you say it is “freeing” – you are so right. I don’t think we realize as Americans how materialism attaches itself to us.

    Our family did what you did in 2005. Literally sold everything – house, cars, etc. and brought all of our earthly possessions down to 6 suit cases…. (OK – we asked our daughter to store a few boxes in her attic 🙂 Incredible Freedom.

    Really looking forward to following your journey. We moved to Hawaii for 18 moths – looking forward to reliving some it through you.

      You sold everything too? Ok. Well since you’ve done this already…any tips?

      Yes, we are definitley looking forward to the “Freedom” and writing about our experience as we travel the world.

      Thanks for sharing Curt!
