C.C. Chapman is a lover of travel and online content, which for those of you who don’t care about that sort of thing, means he loves helping people make the things that you read or listen to, like this show, even better.
He’s a sort of secret travel writer, his blog has a travel category with a lot of good content, and he also keynoted the Travel Bloggers Exchange conference in 2012 — this is the new media travel conference of conferences. But two years is a long time in travel, and digital publishing — for example, back then, Apple didn’t even have a podcasts app.
I’m excited to get to know C.C. Chapman the traveler, and how his experiences have significantly changed his priorities in life and then dive into how to create better content for your audiences.

What We Cover:

How a trip to do medical aid in Ghana left C.C. with a memory he'd never forget, and a desire to continue to connect with people in the world.
How he got his start speaking and where in the world that skill has taken him.
C.C.'s best advice for travel bloggers, writers, podcasters, and content producers.
What is Content and Content Marketing, and why it can be a means to support a life of travel.

Today’s guest bills himself as an entrepreneur and an explorer, and is definitely a man after my own heart.
As such, Scott Dinsmore is the guy behind Live Your Legend, a revolution of people out to change the world by doing work they love. On there, Scott talks about finding the work that makes you come alive — as well as adventure and exploration of both the world, and the day-to-day. In other words, he’s out to help you solve the problem of feeling stuck in the dull nagging ache of routine.
Back in May, on the cusp of a trip to Greece with his wife and friends, he wrote an article called Train Yourself for Everyday Adventure — and it was exactly in tune with this show, and my own personal beliefs about the effects of travel and their value to the individual and society.
I also want to tap into Scott’s expertise to help anyone listening here, interested in or setting out to build a life of travel — about how to get started or identify that they’re on the right track.

Candace Rardon is a writer, speaker, sketch artist and illustrator out telling stories about the world through her words and watercolors. You can see these stories on her blog and portfolio The Great Affair. Among other publications, her work has been featured in National Geographic's magazine. As an artist, Candace’s work has opened doors for her to experience the people in the places she’s been, and to take home with her the stories that define who she’s always becoming.
Along with her regular travels, she also lived in India for nearly a full year and I’m excited to get into what that was like, as a traveler and as a woman on her own in a vastly different culture.

What We Cover:

Where Candace draws inspiration from for her art.
Candace's path towards location independence after getting a degree in English.
How Candace found herself on the Rickshaw Run throughout India, and how she fell so in love with the country that she lived there for a year afterwards.
A deep dive into why she sketches and how doing it on the road helps her to learn more not only about the place but also about herself.

Candace’s Best Travel Advice:

Taking the First Step: "Leap and the net will appear.” - John Burroughs
Money Saving Tip: Monthly Expenses app (link pending!)

Packing Tips: WikiTravel, especially for women's safety. The Man in Seat 61 for train journeys.
Favorite Travel Gear: Sketchbook!
Weirdest Food: Octopus!

"Travel gave me all the confidence... I guess I didn't have a lot of self-esteem. I grew a lot as a person just by undertaking challenges and being in difficult situations and just by realizing, 'I can probably figure things out.'" - Chris Guillebeau
A single trip to Africa set in motion a course of events that would make an impact on the world. Certainly my world, and the world of many of my friends.
Today’s guest has been to all 193 countries, while championing above all a life of unconventionality, and non-conformity.
Chris Guillebeau is the author of one of the most recommended books on this show, The Art of Nonconformity, as well as the $100 Startup and his forthcoming book, The Happiness of Pursuit. He’s also the mind behind the Art of Nonconformity blog, Unconventional Guides, and The Travel Hacking Cartel — all of which help people pursue a life less ordinary, and far more adventurous than prescribed by society.
I’m thrilled to have a chance to speak with him about his quests, what he’s after, and how travel can either be the quest itself, or a perfect vehicle to help you find your pursuit of happiness.

What We Cover:

How a transformational trip to West Africa set in motion Chris’ unconventional life.
Chris' perspective on how being helpful can guide you towards crafting a similar business model as him.
Chris' original inspiration during graduate school was the thought: "What if I went to every country in the world and wrote about it?" Eventually, through working on his blog, he was able to create a business around it.
How travel shaped Chris' identity and persona in the eyes of others.
The moments leading up to Chris' completion of 193 countries, and why finishing the quest at a big party in Norway still felt anticlimactic.
How travel has influenced Chris Guillebeau as a person and gave him the confidence to become an entrepreneur.

Sep 12, 2014

This session's guest has been running independent tours for people of all ages through some of the colder regions of the world for over 20 years, including tours of Alaska and sailing trips to Antarctica - both of which really piqued my curiosity.
Laurent Dick grew up in Switzerland and like so many of the Swiss, speaks four languages. And for the past 25 years, he’s lived in Alaska with his wife and son where started his tour company, Wild Alaska Travel.
I’ve always been curious about the 49th State — and what’s waiting up there, so I’m curious to hear from Laurent about why he moved there and what it was about the place that he fell in love with. And then there’s Antarctica, a destination so many people dream to visit — yet seems so inaccessible and extreme.

What We Cover:

Laurent moved to Alaska after accepting an invitation to go mountaineering in British Columbia
How spending two weeks alone in the wild traversing 2000 miles on a river through the Yukon Territory gave Laurent insight on what he wanted out of life, and how you can find the same through solo travel by taking the leap of faith
The cultural and spiritual element of Alaskan native cultures.
How there can often be more of a community in the more remote areas of the world.
Laurent's near death experience after capsizing alone in freezing rapids in Northern Quebec and how that forced him to reevaluate the way he values his time.
What are the Northern Lights and what time of year can you catch them?
The best way to experience Alaska by getting off the beaten path, including witnessing and becoming a part of the Iditarod.
The local foods of Alaska, like moose.
What compelled Laurent to visit Antarctica and how he takes his guests down there.

This episode's guest is many things - including an author and writer, running coach, scuba instructor, Zen monk. He’s also a single father of an adopted son. In 2011, he left his career to explore a nomadic lifestyle with his then 9-year old son, believing that by ‘world schooling’ him, he can give his son the greatest opportunity, the chance to experience and learn about the amazing and complex world in which we live.
Talon Windwalker shares these stories, struggles, and experiences on his blog, 1dad1kid.com. I’m thrilled to connect with Talon, and share his story about living without regrets, and why it’s so important to give young people the encouragement and opportunity to travel.

What We Cover:

How a trip to the Philippines to help with cleft palette surgeries changed Talon's life by exposing him to the beauty of the people and transformations, and gave Talon a desire to "experience life on a deeper level."
How he came to the decision to "world school" his son.
How by changing your travel style just a little, you can expose yourself to amazing experiences.

Explorer’s Quote:

“I came back totally radically changed. This was experiencing life on a deeper level... Now I want to see life. That has changed everything.” - Talon Windwalker

In this session, I have the privilege to talk to the person who holds the world record for being the youngest American to visit every country in the world.

Lee Abbamonte appears regularly on Fox, Travel Channel, NBC, CNN, BBC, ESPN and many others as well as the New York Times, Washington Post, Conde Nast, to name merely a few. Arthur Frommer called him the Marco Polo of the 21st century and Samantha Brown said his ‘gumption is a jewel all travelers - would be and expert - can rely on.'”

After earning his MBA, he took a career in Wall Street for 8 years. There he realized he could leverage his job to travel and work from the road. He got started and never looked back eventually crossing off every country from his list.

What We Cover:

Lee’s accidental start to world travel
How Lee’s gone from traveler to embedded in the travel industry
Lee's life changing experience with the people on Pitcairn Island
Lee's take on the effects of travel
Getting shot at trying to get into Libya during a war to complete his quest of being the youngest person to travel to every country in the world
Where Lee recommends you travel now before the tourism picks up

Explorer’s Quote:

“My favorite travel stories from across the world come from people as opposed to places.”

Chris Backe left Kentucky for Korea, where he lived in Seoul and taught English as a way to create for himself an opportunity to make travel a bigger, more regular part of his day-to-day.
Last year, he and his wife moved to Thailand -where they’ve been bouncing between cities and exploring as much as they can of a very popular country.
But to make things interesting, Chris has this fascination with the WEIRD things he encounters on his  travels and he covers the beat of weird across Asia on his blog, One Weird Globe. In this session, we'll discuss why he’s choosing a life of travel, and how he does it — which includes what it took for him to get a job teaching English in Korea and manage his own classroom of children in a foreign country — along with what 'weird' means to him and his relationship to it, and how travel can help us redefine and become comfortable with the weirdness in all of us. 
So, if weird’s your thing, let’s get weird.

What We Cover:

Chris left his job teaching computer classes at a library to teach english in Korea before eventually wanting even more, which led him to Thailand
Good skills and experience to have to get your ESL certification and a job teaching English overseas
How teaching English overseas can be a great way to teach English overseas
How Chris got into weird things and how his definition of weird has changed by exposing him to increasingly weird things.

Sep 8, 2014

Today we're talking about the value of stories in travel or life and why they matter to the individual and society. I want us to explore why travel matters and today's guest gives us the chance to do exactly that.

Lavinia Spalding is the author of two books, With a Measure of Grace: Recipes of a Small Town Restaurant and Writing Away: A Creative Guide to Awakening the Journal Writing Travel, which helps travelers find an authentic story and access tools to better chronicle their journeys as writers, bloggers, or storytellers. She's also the editor of the Best Women's Travel Writing collections and featured in a slew of publications including Gadling and the San Francisco magazine.

I'm excited to talk to her today about what I mentioned today about stories and why they matter and how to look at them as something you can take home and share for the rest of your life, and why that matters.

What We Cover:

Why finding stories is important to personal growth.
Being vulnerable to the world is the best way to let the best stories happen to you.
Lavinia’s life-changing experience being shown around Florence by two Italian men.
Travel is the best way to embrace the Other.
Why it’s important to unplug and disconnect from your phone and computer when you travel or stay at hostels if you want to connect with other cultures and get the most growth from your experience.

Sep 5, 2014

Did you know that if you need a new car, you can buy one, get flown to Europe and put up in a nice hotel, receive a tour of the factory with lunch, and can then drive it for as long as you'd like around Europe before the manufacturer will ship it overseas so you can pick it up back home?

This is through the Volvo Overseas Delivery program. And while Volvo might be out of a lot of people's price range, today's guest has a creative spin on using the cost of the vehicle to defray the overall cost of taking an European adventure.

Cori George blogs at Lets Eat Grandpa about a number of topics like home, life, sewing and craft projects, and travel. When a friend told me about this program, and her story, I wanted to get Cori on the show to learn more.

And then, returning from episode 54, Stephen Warley from Unstuckable shares his experience with short term car lease programs in France, through which he was able to save over $1000 on a month long car rental. If you're planning an European roadtrip, or to travel and live there for a month or longer but are finding the cost of a car rental to be unrealistic, then listen to Stephen's experience. It just might save you $1000 or more.

These are two stories from people who have creatively funded a car for months of travel in Europe. And while they might not be budget travel tips, they are creative and I wanted to highlight them for their unique approach towards making adventure more affordable.

The post 88: Two Unusual Ways to Save Money on European Roadtrips featuring Cori George appeared first on The Daily Travel Podcast.

Sep 4, 2014

Today I want to talk about a prevailing motif on this show which is the idea that adventure is relative. You don’t need to go far, like Jodi Ettenberg said in episode 10, “What does off the beaten path really mean? This idea that you can only satisfy the new by going to far flung places, I don’t think it’s very accurate… You can have really meaningful, messed up experiences right in your own backyard if you’re open to experiencing them. The only difference is the cultural gaps are smaller.”
And what she means is that it’s the curiosity, the openness, the freeing of the mind that’s more important to exploration. Travel assumes distance, but exploration can happen anywhere - and wherever you explore there is adventure waiting for you.
It’s an easily dismissed idea, this one that you can localize your travels to find adventure - but it’s realistic and actual. And you’re doing it.
So I want to explore what we really mean when we say you can find adventure in your backyard, you can explore the world nearby, and still find life-changing things if you’re open to them.
I asked my friend, a listener of this show, an aspiring adventurer and untethered entrepreneur, Bryan Harris of Videofruit to come on the show and chat with me about a little side project he has been working on to answer the call to adventure that he hears, but in a way that doesn’t involve big distance, or money, or time.

What We Cover:

How Bryan got into travel through a church trip to Sub-Saharan Africa.
Why the world is safer than you think
How Bryan made living on a houseboat for five years into a reality, found adventure, and saved a lot of money doing so
How to find adventure and mystery in your own backyard

Words from an Explorer:

“’You don’t have to travel to Paris to find really cool stuff that happened a long time ago that’s interesting to you.”

"The most rewarding travel experiences are the ones that are quite difficult and you’re slightly pushing your limits all the time." - Alastair Humphreys
When I first conceived of this show, I was doing some preliminary research and I stumbled upon this trailer for a movie called Into The Empty Quarter in which these two British guys wandered across a barren portion of Earth spanning the width of the Rub Al Khali desert that runs across the Arabian Peninsula. They were doing this for no other reason than to live the adventure of it -- just to chase life.
And today, I get to bring one of those two guys on this podcast.
In 2001, Alastair Humphreys set out on his bike from his home in Yorkshire to pedal the length of each continent. It was an ambitious round-the-world journey that took him four years to complete. When he finally did complete it, he returned home to realize that he'd only taken the first step on a much larger personal quest.
Since then, he's walked across India, been a part of the first return journey from Greenland to the South Pole on foot, rowed across the Atlantic, and canoed through the Yukon. That’s only to name a few of his adventures. It’s now safe to say he’s seen more of this world than most people ever considered possible in one lifetime.
He's also become a fantastic storyteller with seven books about his experiences, the journey for him and how others can be inspired to do the same -- to chase down life. He just released number seven, Microadventures: Local Discoveries for Great Escapes, in which he makes adventure, by his definition, accessible to everyone.
In this show, we explore his adventures, and then delve into his unique concept of "microadventures," to dispel the notion that you need to travel to far-flung places to find life-changing experience. It is hidden in plain sight, waiting for you in your own backyard.

What We Cover:

How Alastair got into adventures.
Why he pursues adventure as a medium for creating personal stories.
Why he pursues overland travel and “human-powered” travel.
Why he sets a goal for the end of every trip, like following a river or going from coast to coast, or finishing at the sea, as a reward.
What is a Microadventure, and anyone can go on their own
How to overcome the inertia of life to find the rewards that are worth pursuing.

Words from an Explorer:

“’Inertia is what stops so much of life. Take that first tiny step and that gives you momentum.”

This is part 2 of my conversation with Nora Dunn. Listen to Part 1.

In 2006, today’s guest left a career in financial planning to embrace the desire of perpetual travel, which she has been doing for the past 8 years. This includes train journeys across Canada and Australia, relief work in Asia, life in New Zealand, on a boat in the Caribbean, wandering across Europe. And more.

This show is about helping others to create lives of travel, whatever that means to you – and today’s guest is a shining example.

Nora Dunn is an expert in full time financial stability — and doing so from the road, full time — and today she lives her message and helps others accomplish the same through her blog, TheProfessionalHobo.com. 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.

I’m excited to get Nora on the line today to share with us her story, and how you might create for yourself a life of travel, full time and financially sustainable.

Best Travel Advice:

Taking the First Step: "Do it, book it, don't think too much about it... You have to jump in and learn how to swim."
Money Saving Tip: Getting free accommodation. Also, go slow - the slower you go, the less money you'll be spending.

Sep 1, 2014

This is part 1 of my conversation with Nora Dunn. Listen to Part 2.

In 2006, today’s guest left a career in financial planning to embrace the desire of perpetual travel, which she has been doing for the past 8 years. This includes train journeys across Canada and Australia, relief work in Asia, life in New Zealand, on a boat in the Caribbean, wandering across Europe. And more.

This show is about helping others to create lives of travel, whatever that means to you – and today’s guest is a shining example.

Nora Dunn is an expert in full time financial stability — and doing so from the road, full time — and today she lives her message and helps others accomplish the same through her blog, TheProfessionalHobo.com. 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.

I’m excited to get Nora on the line today to share with us her story, and how you might create for yourself a life of travel, full time and financially sustainable.

What We Cover:

What caused Nora to leave her busy career helping others manage their finances to create the lives of their dreams to pursue her own dreams of travel
What fostered her love of the journey, the challenge of meeting new experience
How Nora knew she could make a life of full time travel a reality, and what she did to make travel writing work for her by carving out a niche, and how to start identifying that for yourself.

Words from an Explorer:

“I always take the standard one to two weeks a year that you get to travel. But I always returned home with more questions than answers."
"The beauty of being a full time traveler is you are the architect of your own life. Travel fast, travel slow, wherever you want to go, anything’s possible."

Today’s guest recently quit her job to take the plunge and make travel a bigger priority in her life.
Rachel Johnson and her husband couldn’t resolve their conflicting work schedules so they did what any perfectly rational couple would do: They both quit. Now they’re moving to Kuwait City, of all places, to teach english and feed their curiosity and explore an amazing and complex part of the world that scares many people to even visit. They’re writing about their experience over at The Might as Wellers.
I’m excited to shake things and bring someone on the show who’s just beginning to take the steps necessary to make a life of travel, what’s exciting her, what’s scaring her, and how they’re making it happen together as a couple rooted in their lives here in the States.

Sarahlynn Pablo is a food and culture writer who covers the food scene in her home city of Chicago, which is an enormous and delicious food scene to cover — while also exploring her heritage as a second generation Filipino-American citizen.
Sarahlynn is a contributor to multiple books on both the topic of Chicago food and Pinoy culture, and how travel and culture come together beautifully through the expression of food, and why this matters.
We really connected on these topics - so I’m thrilled to have her here with us today to share her story about the discovery of self-identity, finding belonging through the exploration of travel and food.

Subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, Soundcloud or TuneIn

What We Cover:

How giving herself the permission to travel to Paris by herself changed her life
How Sarah has found a home in both the States and the Philippines after struggling through it all
The way Sarah uses food to connect the gaps within the exploration of her own culture, and how you can find this in any culture, even in your own backyard
The Filipino food scene in Chicago

Words from an Explorer:

“Food is not anonymous. These recipes come from a place and they come from families and they come from history. It’s such a great way to connect past and present together.” – Sarah Lynn Pablo

In 2008, Shannon O'Donnell took off a year off from her career in to go around the world, supporting herself with her SEO, and make a travel a bigger priority in her life.
Today, she's been on the road for five and a half years, and helps others get started doing the same at her blog A Little Adrift, while supporting herself along the way as an independent consultant, writer, and photographer. She is also the author of The Volunteer Traveler's Handbook and as such is a foremost expert online and off, in the topic of volunteer travel.

How Shannon takes a service-based approach to life
What compelled her to take the step to make life a bigger priority, and a lifestyle
The complications and nuances of selecting an overseas volunteer work opportunity
Research and do your background work on what it means to develop a country. Don't assume that you're perfect for any job.

“All of this that is gonna happen and I don’t know what it is but I know I will be different on the other side of a year… I valued that so greatly that I was willing to overcome the fears for it." – Shannon O'Donnell

More Quotes:

“I had built up these fears because others had these fears and were like, 'These are the things you should be afraid of on the road.'”

"It's all impermanent. You can feel intensely lonely and you can move through that. It's a natural and healthy emotion. It doesn't mean you're a bad traveler."
"Volunteering is a prism through which you can connect deeper."

In 2007, Becki Enright left her career in Public Relations and set out from her home in England for her first solo-female travel experience to Vietnam. Seven years later, she has yet to stop. She’s been through China, Mongolia. India, Kenya, Magadgascar, the United States, Israel and the West Bank, Taiwan and the less visited places like Myanmar and North Korea. She's even lived in Cambodia and is on her way to see Iran. All of this by herself.

Today she’s an expert in not just South East Asian travel, but the lesser known, more challenging destinations on Earth. To support her life of travel, she works as a freelance advertising, PR, and editorial consultant for hire. And she writes about her ongoing experiences from the road on her blog, Borders of Adventure.

After three months in Turkey, Becki is currently traveling through Georgia. I'm thrilled she took time out of her trip to be on the show so I can share her unique approach toward solo-travel as a female to what are perceived by most to be challenging destinations that are intimidating to many people.

Subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, Soundcloud or TuneIn

What We Cover:

Why is Becki passing through the Caucasus, such as Georgia and Armenia.
Why Becki got her start traveling as a student by giving herself permission to take a 2 week trip to South East Asia by herself, and how she was compelled to do so.
What compelled her to leave an unsatisfying career in PR to pursue a round the world trip.
She started growing her travel blog into a resource while acclimatizing with traveling on her own in South East Asia.
Becki's process in qualifying a place as safe to visit.
What are Becki's goals as an explorer of the less exposed areas of the world.
How her travels to the West Bank helped her see the country of Israel and the Palestinian territories as accessible. "It's not as scary as you think."

Words from an Explorer:

“When people are misinformed themselves they make assumptions. That’s the problem I have. That’s what I’m trying to overcome with my writing.” – Becki Enright

More Quotes:

“There’s too much hype around some of these places because it sells good stories. And you go there and even sometimes just checking into a hostel, you learn there’s all of these tours and excursions… People who get into these places are absolutely fine.”

After two decades, today’s guest left his sales career, working for massive tech corporations like Symantic and McAfee, to pursue his own thing in a different place. That place was Singapore where he started his sales and marketing automation company, Linchpin.
Damian Thompson is what you might call a digital nomad, and he’s here to talk about that lifestyle - He recently left the Philippines to go nomadic, and I’m excited to have him on to chat about the places he’s lived, and in his own way, how he took the step that so many dream to take into his untethered life beyond the borders of his home country.

Damian's original plan to create a life of travel was to write content for websites to support his journey

How Damian manages his friendships and relationships
Loneliness should never prevent you from travel. Meeting people is the point of travel.

Words from an Explorer:

"Society tells you this is the path you're supposed to follow. So when you jump off that path, it's definitely scary. It's not normal. But there's a lot of us abnormals out there." – Damian Thompson

More Quotes:

"No matter if you want to be the weirdo because you want to travel and you don't really want to have a house, that's not your goal ... Trust me. There's hundreds of thousands of us around the world. When you actually get out, we're pretty easy to find. We'll be in the cities you'll be in... You're not alone if you think you're the weirdo and nobody in your family understands what you want to do." – Damian Thompson
“The line blurs between life, work, friends, family... when you decide to live a more nomadic lifestyle.” – Damian Thompson

Noah Lederman was the grandson of Holocaust survivors who, as you might imagine and is often the case, were never keen to share their stories with those who have followed them in time. However, through his travels, he became more curious about these secrets, and set out on a physical journey to uncover the truth.
Doing so led him to a life of travel and writing to explore some of humanities darker truths, and learn a lot about himself and people, and why stories matter, in the process.
While in Cambodia, he was working on a novel; however, through interacting with the people he uncovered an unshared history of Cambodian culture as a result of what the Khmer Rouge did in the 1970s. His book became a non-fiction account of his travel experience and the admiration he has for a people who struggle to recount their own past.

What We Cover:

While it was Noah's parents travel stories that compelled him to explore the world, it was the untold stories in his family that pushed him to explore his past.
How a round the world trip gave him an appreciation for stories.
How his physical travels gave him an emotional connection to his grandmother that he'd never had before.
