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. Today’s episode has been sponsored by our friends at Tortuga Backpacks & Sauv’s!
After a birthday trip to Chile, Suzanne and Mitch Rutledge realized that long term travel might be something they could ACTUALLY do! They got back home and started planning;
What would they do with their house?
How would their son’s school take the news that they were taking an extended trip abroad?
Where were they going to go?!
As they began preparing for their trip things began falling into place, and here they are, on the other end, talking about their experiences as seasoned world travelers!
Suzanne, Mitch, and Luke (the youngest person to ever be on the podcast) join me today to chat about getting out the door and deep into a 9-month adventure around the world, along with some of the best tips that they learned along the way.
We talk a lot here at Extra Pack of Peanuts on traveling more while spending less.
Today’s guess spent less to travel. A lot less.
Tom Edwards, author of Two Bucks to Timbuktu & Planes, Trains, and Broken Strings joins me to talk tips and tricks for ultra-budget travel and finding work while you’re on the road.
Tom’s done it all, hopped trains (been fined on said trains), slept under bridges (with and emu), hitchhiked, couchsurfed, and busked the streets for cash. He’s had more than a few adventures and today he shares those adventures with us!
You don’t need money to travel the world, you just need to be creative!
