Good episode? Give it some love!
So, you want to take a trip but you're worried about missing a potential opportunity at work; or you've got a dog at home that may or may not start rough drafting a suicide note if you're gone longer than a couple of days; or maybe you are just anxious about spending so much money at once... do any of these scenarios sound familiar? Travel guilt takes many forms, none of which are pleasant or fun to deal with.
