Betsy and Warren Talbot are a recovering 40-something, Type-A couple who spent their 20s and 30s climbing the corporate ladder only to realize it wasn’t the ladder they wanted to be climbing. So, in October, 2010, just shy of their 40th birthdays, the couple sold everything they owned and left their lives behind to see the world. They’re still traveling today.
