About the Show
Creating Insatiable Wanderlust Since 2013
Every Tuesday Trav and Heather fill your heart with wanderlust and your head with knowledge.
Sometimes we’ll interview amazing travelers, like the guy who went around France on a little red scooter or the guy who spent 5 years going to every country in Africa (and climbing the tallest peak in each). Sometimes we’ll give you practical advice, like our 47 best gifts for travelers or 21 ways to survive a long haul flight. Sometimes we’ll drop some lists on ya (we love lists!) like our top 10 ice cream in the world or our top 25 breweries. And sometimes we’ll tell you all the best things to do at a specific destination, like the best seafood in Croatia or where to eat pizza in Rome.
But we’ll always have fun, always get (probably too) excited, and always say the word boutique wrong.
Joining me today is someone who has driven solo across Vietnam on a bike, was a burlesque dancer in Shanghai, and has gotten stranded in Taiwan, Alice Teacake from TeacakeTravels.com and cohost of the Girls Talk Travel podcast.
Joining me today is someone who after spending 8 years playing at the highest level in the NFL retired and gave all his possessions to charity, and whose name of his blog and social media handles says it all, Joe Hawley from ManVanDogBlog.com.
Joining me today is someone who, despite being a “neurotic Jew from New York who is quite possibly the most risk-averse person you know” (his words, not mine) has traveled to over 20 countries – all while clutching his wallet too tight and packing every medication under the sun just in case he’s 3 hours from a hospital, Gilad Gamliel from AnxiousandAbroad.com.
Today we are talking with Natalie Migliarini from BeautifulBooze.com and we are discussing the epic relationship between cocktails and travel, how she got her business started, and why it’s okay to blend your business with your travels. We also dive into the best countries for cocktails, the strangest cocktails, the best drinking experiences, and where you should scrimp & splurge for your home bar (especially during COVID-19).
Joining me today is someone who I had the great honor to have on 3.5 years ago (way back in episode 272), and who since then has continued his immersive exploration, which includes working the hardest job on Earth, Nate Menninger from his new project, ThePorterFilm.com.
Joining me today is someone who used to sing 60’s covers in a psychedelic rock bar in Costa Rica, whose hometown is roughly 8,000 miles from where she now lives, and who is the only Uruguay guidebook author who actually lives there, Karen Higgs from guruguay.com.
Joining me today is someone who has hitchhiked across oceans, who started off on a 5 year around the world journey with only $50 in his pocket and came home with a wife, and who is a fellow twin, Christopher Schacht, author of Around the World on $50 Bucks.
Joining me today is someone who since 2005 has hitchhiked across 95 countries, including Afghanistan and Iraq, to document hospitality and fight stereotypes and who has written a book about it called Hitchhiking in the Axis of Evil, Juan Villarino from JuanVillarino.com.
Joining me today are two guys who started the #1 hostel in Nicaragua, who have participated in the Mongol Rally, who have traveled through China, Colombia, and Peru sourcing fabrics and whose motto is to “Fight Against Boring”, Sean Kolina and Jeff Anderlite from BajaLlama.com.
Joining me today is someone who is a founder through and through – he’s founded a coworking space in Bansko, Bulgaria, a Nomad Sailing Retreat, and who has just started another project called “Wild Nomad Safari” Uwe Allgauer from Wildnomadsafari.com. We are diving into having multiple businesses at one time, the importance of having a community of like-minded people, & why you need to have time to connect and time to disconnect
