Emerging Destinations with Nate Hake

Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast 344: Emerging Destinations with Nate Hake

Nate Hake is a recovering lawyer who after 5 years and $250,000 of debt, got fed up and decided to travel the world instead.

He spent his first year fast traveling through 43 countries & 6 continents but has switched to digital nomad slow travel to allow him to work on his travel blog Travel Lemming and burgeoning software company.

His love of the country of Georgia & being a sucker for emerging destinations has made us instant kindred spirits and I really enjoyed getting into what makes a place an emerging destination, what is life truly like after years on the road, and tips on how to travel more (hint: credit card miles FTW).


Our Frequent Flyer Bootcamp has opened its doors and you can get it for $300 off PLUS 4 free bonuses but only until December 21st at 9 pm EST!
