#402 Sea Change


For many of us, travelling is the way we unhook ourselves from our routine, when we feel like we need a break, or a fresh perspective. Usually, it’s just for a few weeks.

This week we have two stories of people leaving their old life behind for good. One of them by choice, the other out of neccessity.
