ReRun: Sailing Around The World (and Russian Saunas) with Bo Cordle

Today we’re giving the Extra Pack of Peanuts Team a break and re-running one of our favorite episodes of all time. If you missed it the first time around, now’s your chance to hear Sailing Bo’s awesome story, complete with one of the most hilarious travel mishaps we’ve had yet.

If you didn’t know how to sail but wanted to circumnavigate the globe, what would your first action be?

Bo Cordle bought a sailboat.

That he didn’t really know how to sail (but he had read a book once..).

Today Bo joins us to talk about his dream to sail around the world, how he came up with the idea, what he’s been doing to prepare for his trip (like learning how to sail), and how he ended up getting flogged in a Russian sauna.

We also speak quite a bit about his famous bucket list, which includes everything from singing karaoke to living abroad, and how it helped him to discover his passion.

Bo and I would love to hear what some of the items on YOUR bucket list are, so please leave them in the comments below! We’ll be putting some of ours there as well!

EPoP 011: How to Book RTW Tickets and the Value of Indie Travel with Sean Keener


In this rollicking interview, Sean Keener, founder of Bootsnall, one of the webs’s very first communities for travelers, sits down to discuss a myriad of topics including how to book Round-the-World (RTW) tickets, the value of “indie” travel, and how the internet has changed the travel landscape (for better and worse).

Sean has been writing and talking about travel on the internet since the days of dial-up internet, and founded Bootsnall a whopping 15 years ago.

Sean’s energy and enthusiasm for travel are contagious and haven’t waned a bit (and in fact, have probably grown) since he started the site as a 25-year-old.

Couple that with extensive knowledge of travel, and you’re looking at an awesome interview.  So hold on to your hats and dig into this inspiring interview full of practical travel advice and great stories!
