Today’s guest is a travel expert and writer, speaker, a former spokesperson and US Travel Editor for Lonely Planet. He’s appeared on The Today Show, CNN Headline News, MSNBC, NPR, PRI, and more. Now he’s the Digital Nomad for National Geographic - a job he calls the world’s greatest - in which he seeks the why and hows behind how and why we experience the world.

What I love about Robert Reid and why I’m excited to have him on the show is that he eschews top 10 lists, which he used to write, in the interest of fun and playfulness. Which you can find in his proudly offbeat and DIY 76-Second Travel Show videos.

He says, “Don’t just go to see things, but to see what happens when you do things.”

A quick preview:

What are the things you already like? What are you naturally drawn to? What questions do you have about these interests? And how can you incorporate some of that into your travels?
What would your 11-year old self's bucket list look like?
Travel is the business of curiosity. There’s a benefit of appointing yourself a quest in your trips.
Why travel is destination-agnostic. “It doesn’t matter where you go, as long as you think about it and approach it in a unique way that you’re interested in.”
How hard is okay to push others towards a more immersive travel, or just more travel?
How travel can be a fountain of youth.
How to take the curious mindset of an explorer into everything you do.
What the role of Digital Nomad at National Geographic is and means to Robert Reid.
Don't travel like a local. Travel with a local.
