From phones and cameras to backpacks and shoes, Eytan has a minimalist solution for everything.
He’ll share with us why he doesn’t bring any camera other than his phone, some of his favorite brands of clothing, and best of all his packing list for a 25-liter bag. That’s tiny, even by my standards!
This is Part 2 of a 2 part Podcast. To listen to the first part, click here! You’ll learn how Eytan got into the travel lifestyle, how he balances travel & work, and the best way to use your phone while traveling.
Eytan from Snarky Nomad joins me today to discuss some of my favorite topics.
Travel & travel gear.
On today’s episode, we preface our main discussion of travel gear (found in Part 2 of this interview) with Eytan’s telling us how he fell in love with travel, and why he became so obsessed with travel gear in the first place.
We discuss how explaining a red solo cup to an Australian is what brings Eytan back to travel again and again, and end this part of the interview with Eytan’s opinions on T-mobile’s international plan (a much-asked question here at EPoP).
Make sure to check back on Thursday for Part 2, where we discuss the best travel gear, the perfect travel shoe, and why your phone is really all the camera you need.
Brendan Leonard is not a good enough skier to get caught in an avalanche.
You may wonder what on earth that means.
The answer is the key to Brendan’s site, Semi-rad.com. A site for regular people, who like the outdoors. Not professional climbers, or skiers, but regular people going outside to do something they love because they love it.
Today Brendan joins us to talk about how he got into the outdoor lifestyle, how taking a conference call from his smelly car changed his life, and the reality behind the concept of security.
So listen to Part 1 of this awesome interview, and learn what Brendan means by not being a good enough skier to get caught in an avalanche. His reason may lead you to more answers than you expected.
Today we discuss the biggest challenges of long term travel, a great way to find out if this lifestyle is really for you, and an awesome way to reframe some of the negative commentaries from friends and family that don’t understand what you’re doing.
We also discuss a topic that is much beloved by our listeners, relationships on the road. Evo discusses some of the strengths and weaknesses that he and his wife have, and how their roles have changed in their marriage since leaving their default lifestyle behind.
