Marina Janeiko is a digital nomad with a particular skill-set with which she’s been supporting a lifestyle of travel and creative wandering, while building a career for herself that allows her to live and work from anywhere.
As a User Experience Designer, she’s been working on What’s It Like — a web platform that focuses on travel by asking when should you go, rather than where — which is an idea I absolutely love.
And for the past 5 years, Marina’s been living the digital nomad lifestyle with her husband, traveling from country to country, exploring the earth while building a location independent career for herself.

"For every alleyway out there, there's an alleyway inside of you."

This is part 2 of my conversation with Don George. Listen to part 1.
Don George is the Editor at Large for National Geographic Traveler, as well as a Special Features Editor for Gadling. He’s the former editor of the San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle. the founder and former editor of the Wanderlust section of Salon.com, and the Global Travel Editor at Lonely Planet. He’s the author of the lonely planet guide to travel writing and most recently the editor of An Innocent Abroad, Lonely Planet’s most recent collection of travel stories from some amazing people, some of whom I’m lucky enough to call friends.
In this two-part conversation, Don shares his beginnings as an aspiring poet, a pilgrimage to Paris to follow in the footsteps of great writers, and his transformation into a travel writer. In it, we explore what it means to live profoundly, how travel can make that easier to achieve, and how to uncover the stories that are waiting for you to tell.

In 2006, today’s guest first appeared way back in episode 86 and 87, where we talked about how to travel longterm in a financially sustainable way and how to find free accommodation anywhere.

Nora Dunn left a career in financial planning to embrace the desire of perpetual travel, which she has been doing for the past 8 years — and since then has been helping others accomplish the same through her blog, The Professional Hobo. She’s released two books, How to Get Free Accommodation Around the World, and for any train journey lovers like me — Tales of Trains: Where the Journey is the Destination.

And now she’s released her third from Unconventional Guides, Live and Work from Anywhere — Transplant your Career, Job, or Business to the Global Location of Your Choice. In this episode, we explore the changes in Nora's life over the past year, finding balance in the lifestyle of work and travel, and how Nora's new book can help you find the right path toward location independence.

This is part 2 of my conversation with John Marshall, author of Wide Open World. Listen to part 1.
Wide Open World is a new memoir by John Marshall, a 9-time Emmy Award winning producer from Portland, Maine.
This book is more of an opus to experience and a richly told account of likely the most beautiful thing John Marshall has ever done for himself, his family, and everyone they helped and were helped by along the way to finding whatever it was that they found waiting for them out there on the road. And we’ll hear all about what that was.
Before the trip, John’s marriage was struggling and he was becoming increasingly disconnected from his teenage kids. The trip was to be a change agent.
And since the trip, John’s been committing time to helping orphans around the world, and I’m sure we’ll explore when and where this fire kindled inside of him, and from where the inspiration for the trip and book came.

Hey Explorers! Danny was kind enough to give us all a free audio version of his new book, Buy Your Own Island: The Ultimate Guide to Breaking Free and Making Your Dreams Reality. You can download the audiobook here.
After struggling to find employment out of college, Danny Flood instead decided to travel the world - and pursue a list of dreams that he’d written down on a piece of paper.
Five years later he’s still traveling and living overseas and Danny’s ready to tell his story — and I’m excited to explore exactly where this decision has taken him, and the work that he’s become inspired to produce.
Among a handful of his project, Danny is the founder of Open World Magazine, an online resource for travel, entrepreneurship and life hacking. And now he’s the author of his first book, Buy Your Own Island — the ultimate guide to breaking free and making your dreams reality.

Max Breckbill is an American in Germany, and together with his partner, Marcus Meurer, they’ve been embedding themselves into the entrepreneurial scene there in Berlin. Marcus founded DNX Global - The Digital Nomad Conference, which is happening on July 31st 2015, featuring a number of digital nomad speakers who have been on this show.
In Berlin, Max runs series entrepreneurial community activities among aspiring and successful independent people in Berlin seeking support, help, and to spend time with like-minded people.
So many travel shows focus on what people call location independence and lifestyle entrepreneurship - and while I cover these topics, as well as respect and practice them myself —  I say this a lot on this show — entrepreneurship may not be for everyone, but travel should be. And in this episode, we explore who these two guys are, and what the creative scene in Berlin might be like, particularly for digit and the role they see themselves filling in their lives there.

Megan Jerrard is the mind behind the award winning travel blog and extremely helpful resource Mapping Megan. Meg and her husband Mike have been covering their own adrenalin-fueled travels for 8 years — since way back in 2007. Together they seek to let their own dreams inspire others to pursue their own — to get out there and explore, and become a better version of yourself.

Adventure is the departure from your comfort zone, and in this episode we get into what it is that compels Megan to constantly do this, and keep doing this, for over 8 years now.

Jenna Davis is a travel blogger and freelance writer from Ontario who, since 2012, has been choosing a life of travel over the status quo. I’m going to quote something she wrote about herself that I can entirely relate to:
“To be honest, I had no idea where I wanted to be in the future, I just knew I couldn’t be average. I couldn’t put myself into a position where I would go to bed every day unsatisfied with my life and worrying about the problems I have on my plate for the next day at the office. Life is so much bigger than that and I felt so sheltered living in this life I hated.”
Now you can find her writing at Give for Granted where she focuses on meaningful adventure and giving back through sustainable travel — making a change in her life through dedication to the service of others.

I met Alex Montoya in December of 2014 at The White House Travel Blogger Summit on Study Abroad and Global Citizenship. He was the only student we heard from at the event. All being participants of study abroad and travel programs ourselves, this was okay but the reason was obvious: He was a recipient of the Gilman Scholarship, which helps connect underserved populations that might not have the opportunity to afford or find programs to study abroad with the ability to actually go and participate in internships and learning abroad.
With encouragement from a professor, Alex found the guidance to discover the opportunities out there to study abroad, what it means to study abroad, and how to make it happen. In this episode, we explore his story, the transformation, and how it felt to be speaking on stage, at The White House, with the biggest names in travel and government.

"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.

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.
