For the first time on the Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast, I’m joined by TWO people on the other side, Dave and Deb of the wildly popular travel blog, ThePlanetD.com.
Billed as “Canada’s Adventure Couple”, Dave and Deb discuss what adventure travel really is, and how two normal people like themselves are able to do some pretty abnormal travel quests (and all along, I thought I was interviewing super athletes)!
In addition to telling some amazing stories, like how they drove across two continents or biked the entire length of Africa, they’ll also provide logistical advice on how you can begin an adventure travel experience.
What tour companies might work for you.
How to pick your first adventure travel trip.
What health insurance you should have (and why you shouldn’t be scared of hospitals in other countries).
And even how to do bring adventure to your home if you can’t travel
And what I really love about this interview is that Dave and Deb then both open up about what travel means to them, and talk candidly about how it saved their marriage and the joys (and obstacles) of traveling as a couple.
Dave and Deb are two of the most energetic and passionate people I’ve met, so you can imagine what it’s like having them both on at once.
Positivity and enthusiasm radiate from the podcast!
If you’ve dreamed of doing travel that is a little less ordinary, go have a listen…and be bouncing off the walls the rest of the day!
Today, Steve Kamb of NerdFitness sits down to discuss how he was able to stay in shape while on an 8-month long around-the-world trip and gives some amazing, instantly implementable tips on how fellow travelers can do the same, no matter what destination they are in.
Steve is a magician at taking complex health and fitness issues, such as the impact of sugar on the body or the Paleo Diet and not only making them easily understandable but also fun to learn about.
Lucky for us, Steve is not only a fitness nerd, but also a travel nerd, and he discusses his love for frequent flyer miles, how he travels cheap, and also his favorite places.
Steve also delves into how he went from being a risk-averse video game nerd who had never left North America four years ago to a risk-averse video game nerd who now travels the world and becomes James Bond for a weekend and how the excuses for anything are total BS.
So if you’re someone who tends to get a little flabby while traveling, break that trend.
Have a listen to Steve and start implementing his simple instructions for staying fit on the road today!
In this episode of the Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast, Jay Hoffman, founder, and CEO of Rocketmiles sits down to discuss how savvy travelers can earn thousands of frequent flyer miles per hotel stay as opposed to just a few hundred.
Jay is a self-proclaimed frequent flyer addict who once headed the loyalty program at United MileagePlus before moving to Groupon.
From his experience at those two places, he saw the need for a place where frequent flyer lovers like himself could go and have the opportunity to earn large chunks of miles from their hotel stays, not just tiny amounts that would take forever to add up.
With the mission of giving people more vacations, Rocketmiles was born!
Since launching in April, Jay says that one customer has already been able to rack up 450,000 frequent flyer miles just from hotel stays with Rocketmiles, which is enough to fly 2 people anywhere in the world, first-class, for free!
So if you’re someone who is looking for yet another way to build up your stash of frequent flyer miles and take that dream vacation even sooner than you realized, you won’t want to miss what Jay has to say!
