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.
Are you a digital nomad or an aspiring one? Are you a blogger? Do you know who started it all? Joining me today is someone who has gotten arrested for smuggling a single banana, who ran a campaign for Apple that was so successful their lawyers had to shut it down, and who wrote, quite possibly, the world’s very first blog post and is the world’s very first digital nomad, Rob Palmer from Go Freelance.com.
One of the top stressors people have when becoming location independent are money, investments, and taxes abroad and the best way to structure everything. Well, joining me today is someone who has lived everywhere from Banff and the Canadian Arctic to Singapore and Dubai, who has traveled to almost 100 countries and who believes that just because you were born in one country doesn’t mean you have to keep your money and investments there, Mikkel Thorup from The Expat Money Show.
Joining me today is someone who has lived in over 30 countries, who had a car that has more Facebook likes than his company page, and who is known as the Nomad CEO, Eli David, co-founder of StartUpBlink.com & BecomeNomad.com.
This is part three of this series and we get into the investing side of it all. What should you be looking for when purchasing a property for hosting on Airbnb or any short term rental platform?
Have you wanted to visit New Zealand? How about traveling through New Zealand via a campervan? Joining me today is someone who has been featured on HGTV’s Tiny House Hunters, who campervanned around New Zealand and wrote a book about it, and who started her latest project when she realized chatting with her husband was awkward, Lindsey Nubern from NuventureTravels.com.
If you have ever listened to this podcast in the past then you are very aware of our love for Ice Cream/Gelato. Since it is summertime we thought this is the perfect time to dive into our favorite places around the world for this delicious dessert (& it should be eaten at all times during the day).
Joining me today is Jenn Viemont from BeyondThe States.com, author of College Beyond the States & someone who is one of the world’s foremost experts on the over 1,700 schools in Europe that a student can get a bachelor’s degree from, in English, and who, for her “job”, gets to visit Europe regularly to visit these schools.
It’s no wonder that he was the 2012 National Geographic Traveler of the Year, and Geographic Magazine calls him “Slightly bonkers but this a wonderful thing”, Alastair Humphreys from AlastairHumphreys.com and author of 10 books, including the latest My Midsummer Morning.
Do you enjoy collecting remembrances of your travels? Are you someone who has something from every country you have visited? Joining me today is someone who hails from the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada, who wants to help those less fortunate be able to travel the world as well, and who has a design eye that would make my wife proud, Darryl McIvor from TravellerCollective.com.
Joining me today is the author of one of my favorite books, The Hidden Europe, creator, producer, star and everything else of The Unseen Africa, and a man who has probably had more adventures in the last 3 days than I’ve had in my entire life, Francis Tapon of WanderLearn Podcast. I am so happy to have him back on the show since we last spoke almost exactly 4 years ago or 275 episodes but who is counting. Today, we are diving deep into The Unseen Africa project which includes a book and a video series and is a must read/see for everyone!
