Nothing compares to real-life experiences. This is especially true for travel. When Kevin Bledsoe is taking trips with his family, he has more in mind than just a sightseeing tour. Both Kevin and his wife, Kasey, go to other regions of the world for a sense of wonder and adventure. They immerse themselves as much as possible in cultures that are vastly different from their own. Kevin understands that stepping outside his comfort zone opens him to a world of possibilities and perspectives that would otherwise be impossible.
In the high-pressure, fast-paced world of self-storage brokerage, Kevin knows more than most people how important it is to seek a work-life balance. Kevin looks for ways to recharge in addition to exploring other cultures, cuisines, and traditions. Kevin also welcomes the self-reflection that comes with travel, allowing him to step back and appreciate all the things he has, tangible and non.
One of Kevin and Kasey’s favorite aspects of traveling is making new friends from all over the globe. People who might be outside someone’s orbit at home can appear through chance, creating a lifelong friendship. Kevin’s most exciting travel experiences have involved learning about geography, history, culture, food, and language from the local inhabitants. To Kevin, the contrasts are just as compelling as the similarities.
