Ep 68: King In His Castle

22 Nov


Happy post-turkey coma/black friday! We have such a special guest for this week’s show. We’ve been trying to get him on for a long time. We actually dive straight into the interview this week. Our normal topics will return next week :)


Ara Gureghian and Spirit (image from his site)

 Ara Gureghian and Spirit are nomadic riders who have been riding a sidecar rig full-time around the country for seven years. Following the loss of his son Lance, Ara completely changed his lifestyle of being a personal chef and running fast bikes to a life on the road following a spiritual journey and embarking on his own course of personal therapy. His story is pretty inspirational, whether you’re coming from a place of great personal loss or just nursing a case of wanderlust in your cubicle everyday. Ara himself is just fascinating to speak with. After you listen to the interview, go check out his very informative website (with links to Facebook, Youtube, their SPOT tracker, etc):

Also, be sure to check out the one-pan meals section. You got a personal chef to millionaires cranking out recipes with an eye for being on a motorcycle! One Pan Recipes and More: http://store.theoasisofmysoul.com
