005 Pornfree Travel, Hotel Tips, and Trip Planning

Staying pornfree while traveling doesn’t happen by accident. It takes work. In this episode I give some of my best tips for travel and hotels. I also walk you through T-UP, a planning exercise, I go through before each trip.

  1. Take a piece of paper length wise.
  2. With a pen divide into three columns.
