Where To Go & When w/ Sherry Ott

Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast Where To Go & When w/ Sherry Ott

  In her 11 years of living nomadically, she’s circled the globe multiple times visiting all 7 continents. She lived in Vietnam, hiked the Annapurna Circuit with her father, finished the 10,000-mile Mongol Rally, walked the Camino de Santiago, kayaked in Antarctica, herded reindeer in the Arctic, and drove an auto-rickshaw across India.

While quarantining in her home in Denver – she used her time to work on a new Ebook, Where to Go, and When. The book provides inspirational ideas of where to travel each month (for when we can travel again). For each month she chose 3 destinations to satisfy different travel styles (epic adventure, domestic trip, and an international trip or festival) with a short overview of the interesting, cool and quirky things to do there. The destinations were chosen based on trips Sherry has actually done over her 14 years as a travel blogger. My good friend and incredible writer and photographer – one of the OG’s of travel blogging – Sherry Ott from Ottsworld.com.

What is your favorite place to go in a specific month? Let us know by tagging us in a post on Instagram at @ExtraPackofPeanuts.
