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 Allgäuer from Wildnomadsafari.com. We are diving into what it’s like to have multiple businesses running 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. (This was recorded pre-COVID-19 so dates discussed have changed)
Today is all about Heather & I’s top 5 favorite states we have been to and that means it is time for some good-hearted disagreements and maybe a mention or two of a few states that we still want to visit. This is another episode idea straight from our “Ask Us Anything” call-out on Instagram but we knew this would definitely need its own full episode. Of course, this wouldn’t be a “Top List” without some honorable mentions so who do you think had the most of those?
Joining me today is someone who is known as “a nomad attorney”, who in the last two years has ventured through Pakistan and Iraq, driven from LA to Alaska, and maybe most impressively, took the Trans-Siberian railroad in winter, and who just published his third novel, He Who Fights with Monsters (wow, I’m tired just writing all of that out!), Marc Weitz.
Have you always wanted to learn a new language? How about 20 of them? Joining me today is someone who retired ex-diplomat, who has 50 years of travel under his belt, and who speaks 20 languages, Steve Kaufmann from lingq.com.

Today we are answering one of our listener’s questions that we received through our Instagram account and we thought it was so good that it deserved its own podcast episode. We all know how much Travis loves his lists and he agonized over it up until this recording (TBH it was during the recording as well) while Heather was able to put her’s together in less than 5 minutes but that is not to say that there wasn’t a ton of pros and cons to navigate. The question is (drumroll please…) if you could only go back to one country for the rest of your life, where would you choose?
And of course, Trav has his ground rules for this question & is the flip flop master which you will hear when you check out this episode.
