Rachel's Bio: If you want to know what it's like to climb Kilimanjaro, paraglide with a hawk (a.k.a. "parahawk"), ice climb while simultaneously shooting a PBS show, or SCUBA dive the continental divide in Iceland, Rachel's the woman to ask.

Rachel has always been an explorer, from the days of youth running barefoot through Ohio's forests, to the present day scouring the globe for stories that need telling.

This episode is perfect for: Anyone looking to do anything that's bigger than them, or seeking transformation from their curiosity and the world.

“I think you can choose to be happy, and choose to explore, and choose to be fulfilled by life or you can choose to sit back and let life overwhelm you and be unhappy. But for me, the easiest happy life has been through travel because it’s continually evolving and changing and I’m continually discovering new things. And I just found very quickly that that suits me very well.”

Kirsten Alana is a former nomad turned New York based travel photographer, entrepreneur, consultant, writer, blogger and digital influencer and the creative mind behind Aviators and a Camera, where she posts about her adventures, luxury travel assignments, creative pursuits and life in general.

The compelling thing about Kirsten is not just the many hats she wears, or that what she does is unusual but how she does it so well, and with such a thoughtful style. At the very least, you should check out her work on Instagram. She is exactly the sort of person brands want to work with because she makes them look good, and smart.

This episode is ideal for anyone looking for change, a pathway to transformation in work and life, and who is considering traveling but letting something in a structured life hold them back from pursuing who they're meant to become.

*2015 marks the 25th anniversary of Halloween Horror Nights here at Universal Studios in Orlando. Every year since 1991, this event has grown not only at this park, but at other Universal Studios Theme Parks all around the world.
Together, my wife and I got to experience the whole event as a part of a VIP press event, which included touring 9 elaborately designed haunted mazes and multiple outdoor “scare zones”. They’ve basically turned the entire theme park and nine of the professional sound stages into one enormous haunted environment. It was, hands down, the most incredible and surreal outdoor atmosphere and immersive theater experience I’ve ever wandered through.

Interested in attending Halloween Horror Nights 25?
This is the perfect year to go for the first time or return and re-immerse yourself in the 25 years of Horror Night homage. Get your tickets information here. And be sure to check out these posts from friends of the show for everything you need to know:

Jason Will is the Founder and CEO behind Zipkick, a startup determined to personalize the travel booking process. With brand ambassador Scott Eddy behind the wheel, I jumped onboard the Zipkick roadtrip - a cross-country tour to build hype around the launch of the Zipkick smartphone apps.

Growing up playing competitive hockey left Jason with little chance to travel as a kid but plenty of competitive drive to be a champion. In this conversation, we delve into that inner-fuel and what it takes to launch and run a startup in the tech and travel industries.

Hit play below and come along for the ride!

Today’s guest is a photographer, filmmaker, blogger, and social entrepreneur.

And she’s also new to international travel, but she’s also just 17, which means she’s getting quite a headstart at building a life of travel, exploring her curiosity and creativity through The Global Sunrise Project, a documentary film project she’s building. Through this project, and her travels, Kasha Slavner explores the emotional value exposing yourself at a young age to difference, and why it’s so important to become what’s widely known as a global citizen.

“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.

Today’s guest is one I had the pleasure of meeting in one of the many places he considers home, Bangkok. He took me to a cigar and whiskey bar in which they were projecting Buster Keaton on the brick wall and had a jazz singer in the corner. After a day spent on Khao San Road, and the backpacker scene there, this was a whole different side of Bangkok. The whole place felt a lot more New York than it did back alley Thailand.
And that’s how where I got to know Scott Eddy, a former stockbroker turned world traveling digital marketing consultant and public speaker.
More recently, he’s added digital nomad to list of descriptors. But travel wasn’t always there for Scott, and we’re going to get into the direction he’s taken his career, how and why.
Above all things, I’ve noticed Scott to be an opportunist in the best of ways — he never passes the opportunity to make a new connection, visit a new place, meet a new audience, or just say hello and be curious.

Adina Pease is a creative wanderer — her term, that I wish I thought of — and when she’s not documenting her travels in paint or film, through her company Dog on a Boat Studios, she’s running her new startup RambleGood, making and selling handmade travel goods for a good cause, products designed for the curious, the travelers, and those with an insatiable wanderlust for the world. Does that sound like you? Because I’m pretty sure that describes me.
She’s worked with National Geographic, Travel Oregon, and Matador Network, to name just a few, on various creative storytelling projects.

"What's another place that's kind of a black hole in people's imagination? Does it stretch me a little? So I go there open endedly... I'm just relying on good luck and chance encounters." - Naomi Duguid, on finding her next travel and creative project.

Naomi Duguid is a former-lawyer turned award winning cookbook writer, author, photographer and traveler. She’s the author of Hot Sour Salty Sweet, a culinary journey through Southeast Asia, and the person behind her website Immerse Through and presently working on her next book called Caucasia, an exploration of culture through food in Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan.
In this in depth conversation we dive right into the good stuff to explore what motivates Naomi's creative endeavors and drives her travels to the lesser known parts of the globe and how she built a life of travel having abandoned a more conventional career in the law.
