Posted By Trav

In this episode, world famous travel blogger Gary Arndt of Everything-Everywhere sits down with me to talk about how he has become one of the world’s most recognized travel bloggers and how a 2 year trip has turned in to 6.5 years (and counting) of full-time travel.

He’ll dish out some of the best advice I’ve ever heard about how to become a successful blogger (hint: it’s not what you think), discuss how he taught himself to become an award winning photographer despite no formal training, and we’ll tackle the difference between travel vs. vacation.

And of course, since this is a man who seeks to see everything and go everywhere, he’ll also share some of the most amazing places he’s been as well as some pretty big countries that he hasn’t yet gotten to.

Gary’s passion for travel, his incredible talent for storytelling and photography, and his drive to push the boundaries of travel blogging to new heights has catapulted him to the forefront of the travel industry.

He was one of the very first travel bloggers and now, rightfully so, is one of the biggest, so you definitely won’t want to miss the wisdom and advice that he shares in this revealing podcast.

  1. Bruce Poon Tip, CEO of G Adventure, was a speaker at TBEX Toronto. He gave one of the most inspiring seminars I have heard at a travel conference called ‘The Noble Purpose of Travel Blogging’.

    I will be writing a piece this week on his talk for Loyalty Traveler.

    Also I wanted to say what a pleasure it was to spend time with you and your lovely fashionista counterpart at BAcon last month.

      @Ric Garrido- Can’t wait to see your write up on it, and bummed that I missed TBEX Toronto. Booking my tickets to TBEX Dublin shortly.

      Also a pleasure to hang out with you at BAcon. We gotta do it again sometime, maybe Heather and I will head out to Monterey.

  2. This is the first podcast of yours that I had a chance to listen to. Awesome job and what a great person to interview!

    I had the chance to interview Gary last summer- http://www.michaelwtravels.com/2012/08/interview-gary-arndt-of-everything.html
    and recently used one of his signs for a post- http://www.michaelwtravels.com/2013/05/contributor-ridiculous-street-signs-6_7.html

    Looking forward to hearing more of your podcasts in the future!

      @Michael W Travels- Glad you finally got to listen. If you’ve got time, you should catch up on a few of the older ones. Some really, really cool people have been on the show so far.

      Gary was a great interview, and there are plenty more in the pipeline. If you’ve got a suggestion for a guest, let me know and I’ll see if I can get them on the show.
