EPoP 013: Why Adventure Travel Isn’t Just for Super Athletes and The Joys of Couples Travel with Dave and Deb
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!
