How does travel teach us about moments that matter – with The Planet D (Tea Time Podcast Episode 1)

Plum Deluxe Tea Time is the podcast where we bring you thoughtful conversations about what it means to create moments that matter and how we can show up as the best version of ourselves in the moments of life that are important to us.

For our launch episode, we’re going back to the beginning. Plum Deluxe was originally founded with this question: Why are we often better versions of ourselves when we’re on vacation? Our platform has evolved to focus on making moments matter every day, but the initial exploration of this concept and question has informed our making moments matter work, and thus, as we begin a new journey with a new media channel, going back to the beginning to revisit our previous conversation starter seemed the obvious choice.

Throughout this launch “season” of Plum Deluxe tea time, I’ve selected guests who bring to the table various topics that have been crucial in informing the focus and learnings that Plum Deluxe shares. I hope you find them valuable.

Today we talk with Dave & Deb from The Planet D. They live by the motto “Adventure is for Everyone,” and help remove the fear out of getting out of your comfort zone. Their website is followed by over 2.2 million people, and their jaw-dropping travel photography is guaranteed to inspire you to do great things. In our conversation, we talk about some of the more painful moments (in one case, literally) the couple has experienced, why travel has strengthened their marriage, and how they manage to find balance and stay grounded in their hectic lives.
