"Losing everything, as shocking as it was at the time, kind of sets you free because suddenly you know what it is to lose everything. So you don't fear failure and loss quite as much because you've already experienced it."
Justin Tyers and his wife Linda lost everything they had in the middle of the night. But instead of letting this devestate their lives, they chose to see this as an opportunity to pursue the life they'd always dreamed of. Without any experience, they set sail to live on a boat to sail across the coasts of Ireland and Scotland. What happened at home in the middle of the night, well I'll let Justin tell that story...

Life Out of the Box, according to founders Jonathan and Quinn, started with a dream to travel the world, live their ideal lives and make the world a better place. Of all the many things that we talk about on this show, this is the story I’m most interested in: How to see the world and make a lasting impact?

Quinn and Jonathon left California for Nicaragua with nothing but a bag on their back and a desire to make something. While there, they worked with local educational non-profits and artisans to launch a project they were calling Life Out of the Box, a lifestyle brand of clothing and accessories.

For every product sold, Quinn and Jonathan give school supplies to a child in need. The customers even gets to see the exact child they’ve helped after a purchase has been made through the website.

Since launching in November 2012, Life Out of the Box has taken them to Nicaragua, Guatemala and Morocco and brought thousands of school supplies to kids in Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico, Morocco and Kenya.

Today I get to sit down with a friend, who holds one of the most coveted gigs in the travel business as editor in chief of Yahoo Travel. Among the many hats worn over at Yahoo, Paula hosts A Broad Abroad, a must-watch travel series exploring the less expected stories hidden in places very few people think to go, like skiing in Afghanistan. Who knew?
Before this gig, she was the deputy editor of the gossip column for the New York Post, authored multiple books and been featured in Vanity Fair, Glamour, the Post and many more.
Here’s why I love Paula: From the second I met her at a party in Mexico, then again in Athens, she’s been high energy, enthusiastic, helpful, kind, and fun. And I wanted to bring all of that to this show today.

Suffering from a perpetual case of self-described sedentary life-a-phobia, Nikki and Jason move every 7-10 days. They do this with ease because they live in a RV.
Jason and Nikki Wynn are documenting the journey as they live out of their RV in an effort to integrate just a bit more adventure and exploration into their daily lives.
At 28 years old, they packed up and left Dallas and haven’t looked back for 4 years. You can follow this perpetual adventure at GonewiththeWynns.com where they go off the grid - both in destination and lifestyle, even with their 2 cats.

"It's an incredible experience to go to Thailand for a month and sit on a beach... It's an entirely different experience if you build something in addition to that." - Ric Gazarian

Fellow Boston-native turned world traveler and humanitarian, Ric Gazarian has visited 85 countries across all 7 continents. He documents his travels on his site GlobalGaz.com and most recently is the author of the book and documentary film, Hit the Road India: a road rally, and travel photo journal, through the heart of India.
Anyone who listens to this show regularly has heard stories of the Rickshaw Challenge, a freelance adventure across India (run by The Travel Scientists) in nothing more than a small 2-seater with no doors and, if you’re lucky, an engine strong enough to get you there. This is not a safe thing to do but it sure sounds legendary.
Ric let his curiosity of his ethnic background as an Armenian-American motivate him to begin traveling. After a few experiences overseas, Ric was hooked and began challenging himself further. When he was laid off from a miserable, well-paying job in corporate finance after the market crashed in 2008, he was compelled to try traveling full time -- eventually letting his newfound curiosity drive his creativity and fuel his transformation into a filmmaker, photo-journalist, and world-traveler.

Brad Bernard is a former-corporate-consultant-turned-writer by day, and extreme experience junkie by night — Brad is the guy behind My Wanderlist, a travel blog documenting his extreme travel experiences — such as dancing with corpses, eating tarantula, hitchhiking across Saudi Arabia, living with sea gypsies, and being arrested in Oman, as one does right?

The world is a full of adventure and Brad is pushing the boundaries of what you might believe to be possible in the interest of genuinely interesting story.

And that’s why I had to have Brad come on the show - because not only is he, quite extremely, doing the stuff of legend, but taking a journalists eye to craft the stories he’s telling in a compelling style on his blog.

Today’s guest turned a 20-month trip around the world into a new career as a blogger, author, and entrepreneur. He’s traveled to more than 50 countries across six continents, founded two popular travel blogs, Go Backpacking and Medellín Living, written several books on the subjects, and on top of all that, most notably he created Travel Blog Success, the leading community for travel bloggers and media producers that want to earn a living from their blog, or at the very least, get their vacations paid for by doing work they love.
But most recently, David’s just released his first app - Medellín Guide (download on iTunes), aggregating all of the best curated content from his blog into a single app. Right now, it’s free — so I’ve downloaded it and we’re going to do a sort of on-air breakdown of the app, while David takes us through what most consider to be Colombia’s most beautiful city.

When you're buying a flight, do you ever feel that twinge of stress when you're about to click the "purchase now" button? How do you know the price won't just drop tomorrow? Or maybe you found a great price but you're worried the price will jump before you have a chance to run it by your travel companions? The airline's definitely not giving you any assurances. It's too bad you can't use a crystal ball while buying airfare.
Or can you?
Alexander Mans is the CEO and founder of Flyr, a new website that predicts for you whether or not a the price of a flight might go up or down, to help you feel more confident about knowing whether or not to do what just about every guest on this show says: Buy that ticket!
Alexander was born in the Netherlands and has been a computer programmer from childhood. So when the time came for him to move overseas to San Francisco to try his hand in the startup world, it felt like a natural step.
Three years ago he started on Flyr and today it’s live and ready for you to use. I’ve been a fan of this tool all throughout its beta, so I asked Alexander to come on the show and discuss his background, travel, and how Flyr can alleviate the stress of purchasing airfare.

Today’s guest quit her job to travel the world.

But unlike the common narrative you might have heard from many of the guests on this show, Lauren wasn’t just escaping the mundanity of routine for new experience. She was suffering from frequent anxiety attacks and had just had her heart broken. For a 6-month period, Lauren wouldn't even go outside. Listen to her share her story and explain the immense value that travel has had on her and the personal exploration she's discovered simply by embracing the decision to book a one-way flight away from home and live nomadically.

Since then she’s created her own life on the road as the senior writer and editor for two publications, the student travel expert for About.com, and the founder of her own website, NeverEndingFootsteps.com, which chronicles her travels, and especially her stories, challenges, and incidents from her adventures.

Today I’m sitting down with a former broker from London who escaped the dull nagging ache of routine to answer for himself the question that so many guests on this show are compelled to explore: What else is there out there?

In doing so, Leon Logotheetis has become a proponent for your inner rebel, a global adventurer, filmmaker, motivational speaker, television host on National Geographic and an author of two books.

He’s been through over 90 countries across all 7 continents, completed the Mongol Rally, and hosts the National Geographic Channel’s Amazing Adventures of a Nobody, and completed a global circumnavigation on a little yellow motorbike for his new show, The Kind Way Around and his new book The Kindness Diaries - in case you’re looking for a healthy dose of inspiration to kick off 2015.

This is part 5 of a 5 part series on The White House Travel Blogging Summit. Start from part 1.
On December 9th, 2015, The White House hosted the top 100 bloggers and digital media influencers in travel to hold a conversation about their study abroad initiatives to foster global citizenship. In the room were some of the biggest names in travel, from online to television, along with senior White House administration officials, including the Chief of Staff. I still can’t believe I was included.
I want to be able to share the entire summit experience with you so I created a 5-part podcast miniseries designed to bring you with me to the event. In it we’ll cover why The White House did this, what it was like to be there, and dive into the ideas and thoughts around the topic of study abroad and travel in general. But above those things, my goal is simple. I want this show to inspire  just one person to study abroad. To go from thinking, “That’s something I’d like to do” to actually taking the steps to applying or booking that experience.

Putting out these episodes all by myself is a lot of work! Thanks for your patience. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the episode, studying abroad, the summit itself, or anything else in the comments or on Facebook. I’ll also be including a round up post of all the episodes and information to help you explore this event or find the right opportunity to study abroad.

Tayo Rockson just launched his podcast, As Told by Nomads — which you can find under places and travel, among other categories on iTunes. But it has a different angle. Tayo is exploring this pre-existing concept known as Third Culture Kids, or TCKs. Which are essentially kids who have grown up outside of their parents culture. This creates an interesting person who’s able to connect with outside cultures, while never claiming ownership to just one.
I’m curious about what Tayo’s up to with this project, and his perspective on TCKs, and how exposure to other global cultures - particularly at a young age - can effect the mindset of a person and how they live their life.

After trying on a handful of different careers and lives, Marysia Maciocha found the only way to encompass all of these interests was through travel - and the many roles it lets us play. This support was all she needed to fall in love with travel, which she writes about on her blog, My Travel Affairs.
Since then, she’s made a life of travel her own and one I’m excited to explore, while also learning a thing or two about her home country of Poland, from which a number of my relatives came to America generations ago. And yet I’ve still never been.

In this episode, Marysia explains how she made the decision to travel, how she affords it and why she considers herself the luckiest person, what she's found and how these discoveries about herself have influenced her future.

"I was afraid of getting stuck so I made a kind-of-random decision to leave home... I didn't know what I wanted to do, just that I didn't want to be here. And there was no real reason for that other than I'd been here my whole life."
Alana Morgan left life in Seattle to see what might be waiting for her in Chiang Mai, Thailand — where she taught english and established for herself a freelance writing career through her blog, Paper Planes — on it you can find writings about her bigger adventures and a smaller focus on day to day life in Thailand.
I was lucky enough to meet Alana in Greece asked her to come on the show because she not only took the deliberate step to quit her 9-to-5 to make travel a bigger priority in her life, but used it as a tool to find purpose - or at least, enjoyment through exploration and seeing what creating a life for herself might be like abroad.

Mike Wendeland is a trained journalist who in 2012, bought a recreation vehicle or motor home, and while on the road, began covering the beat of the people and experiences they found along the way on his blog, RoadTreking.com.
Mike used to be a traveling journalist for the Detroit News and his curiosity as a reporter has carried over into his retirement, which he’s not taking lying down — but instead, on the road — in his RV, a mobile new media studio, from which he blogs and podcasts on his new show, Roadtreking: The RV Podcast.
As a result of this new project, Mike has attracted an enormous audience of RV enthusiasts to help perpetuate his travels, and who he now inspires to follow in his very unique footsteps.

The post 165: Finding the Right Questions with Mike Wendland appeared first on The Daily Travel Podcast.

Jan 2, 2015

At 19 years old, Jake Ducey - a teenage surfer in california - abandoned a drug-addled college education to find out what else, what more, might be waiting for him out there.
What it was that waiting was a book he would go on to write called Into the Wind: My Six Month Journey Wandering the World for Life’s Purpose.
The travel experience effected him so deeply that he promptly returned to raise funds for an orphanage and school in Guatemala, and launch a motivational speaking career to help young people find self-reliance in an increasingly connected society and world.
Now he’s just released, his latest book The Purpose Principles, all about drawing more meaning into your life.
With travel at the core of Jake’s message, I thought I’d bring him on the show to discuss how you can take your curiosity and creativity and find transformation in life, on the road, and off.

A quick preview:

Travel helped Jake find a purpose to give up a scholarship and overcome a background in drug addiction.
A potentially near-death experience while hiking with locals in Lombok, Indonesia gave Jake the epiphany he needed.
The role a shaman played in his life while living in Guatemala and the inspiration Jake draws from his example.
