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.
Ten years ago, Heath Armstrong was doing work he hated and chugging dangerous amounts of alcohol. Then a fortuitous encounter on a plane set in motion a course of events that changed the course of his life, slowly at first, and then very quickly!
In a wide-ranging conversation about the crazy behind-the-scenes of the Sweet Ass Journal and the Sweet Ass Domination Deck, Heath and Trav delve into Heath’s past, wisdom from his 94-year-old Grandma, the habits he learned and implemented to turn his life around, his world travels, and more!
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!
