“We think we know the plan, right? But the plan always tends to change on us. I had no idea. But I knew that something needed to change. I grew up in the city as a teenager. I always had this intrinsic feeling that at some point I wanted to get out and to see the world. I didn’t know how that was going to happen. But there was this golden thread that was consistent. It was maybe a little buried. There were doubts and there were fears. There were other pressures, that were like ‘Stay in Toronto!’ ‘Be like everyone else!’ but hey. Sometimes you just need to go with your gut.” - Christophe Cappon
Christophe Cappon is a Canadian who’s uprooted his life to move to Chiang Mai, Thailand, where he founded Thailand Yoga Holidays — an atypical yoga school that integrates the surroundings of Northern Thailand — it’s life, it’s food, and culture - into a series of retreats.
Christophe's decision to move to Chiang Mai was not an easy one and was quickly followed by a bout of Dengue Fever. Through this struggle, which he describes as an organic process, Christophe unlocked a love of the people and lifestyle of Thailand. He planted roots and built a school that now is "rolling really well," in his words. To me, his story is an example of the benefit of being open to being unplanned, being challenged, and being receptive to new experience.
I’m excited to sit down and explore his decision to build a life around his desire to see the world and explore his interests, rather than let these things remain hobbies and past-times.

The idea that you need to give up your travels in order to see the world is a common belief, but one that Edna has somehow dispelled along the way.
At 18, Edna Zhou moved to Shanghai to work her way around the world. At 21, she left with almost nothing to live in Singapore — inadvertently jumpstarting an international career in sports journalism, eventually leading to one of travel writing.
From there, she’d never look back - and I’m excited to bring her on the show to explore HOW someone’s able to perpetually travel while still growing a career, as we might define one to be.
Today, you can see her work and follow her adventures at ExpatEdna.com.

In this very special, and first-ever, live interview I sit down with creative agency founder and travel media producer Kristen Kellogg to explore her journey from bartender leading the wrong life to embracing the life waiting for her in travel.

Today, Kristen is the talent behind Border Free Travels, a boutique video and social marketing agency for brands and destinations through which she's reconstructed her lifestyle around a passion to see the world and capture her experiences in a personal way.

“I tell stories of the unsung heroes, the champions of humanity, giving hope to those in need of a quick pick-me-up. Through inspirational messaging and conscious action, I believe media has the power to motivate viewers to occupy their hearts.” - Britt Hysen
Today we get to sit down with the Founder and Editor in Chief of Millennial Magazine, a digital publication focused on the potential of the Millennial generations as change agents. In it’s own words, it’s “Forbes meets Life magazine with a social impact twist.”

Along with her team of photographers and writers, Britt produces monthly digital issues featuring stories across news, culture, profiles of Millennials making an impact and spotlights topics across the board, shining a light on the potential for a generation that up until recently has been more at the butt end of criticism than a tour de force generation that is coming into its own.
