Today I interview my younger brother, who has done something that I would probably never do.
Live in Africa.
A mission trip to Jamacia broke the fear of traveling for Cody when he was younger, and now he’s traveled around the world, visiting our sister in Spain, and our topic today, studying abroad in Uganda.
He’ll share with what life is REALLY like living in Africa and also recount a hilarious travel mishap that includes tap dancing shoes, a trip to Turkey, and lots of sobbing.
Supermarkets, cars, and the shock of too much choice provide some interesting points of contrast to the rest of the world. We chat about the difficulties of re-entry after years abroad before moving onto his big project…
Forks, A Quest for Culture, Cuisine, and Connection, a gorgeous coffee table book about his travels around the world. Complete with recipes and photos from the 35 countries he visited on his journey.
We discuss his quest to get his book published via crowdfunding and the new projects he currently has in the works.
From travel stories and crowdfunding to tips on saving money on the road, Allan shares some of his seemingly endless adventures and tips with us on another awesome podcast!
Do you pursue your passions? Or let fear dictate the course?
Allan Karl decided to follow his passion, and as he says, the decision was hard, but leaving was easy.
He went on to visit over 30 countries on a 3 year-long ride around the world. From the deserts of Sudan to the rainy roads of Brazil Allan has so many stories to share that we had to split the episode in half!
In today’s episodes we chat about some of his more stressful moments along the way, but make sure to check back on Thursday for the conclusion of his journey, and how he went around major publishers to publish his novel Forks: A Quest for Culture, Cuisine, and Connection.
Just the name conjures up images of majestic mountains, incredible landscapes, and some of the world’s most enchanting natural beauty.
For many people, trekking in Nepal is a lifelong dream.
It certainly was for Jason, and last December, he was able to achieve it by hiking through the Himalayas for an entire month.
Today, he joins us to give a complete recap of what the experience was like (hint: amazing) and also provide everything you could ever want to know about the logistics of planning and pulling off a similar trip.
Everything from what route to take, whether you should hire a guide, and even where you should buy piyush (and what exactly it is).
