“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,...

“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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

"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...

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...

In your travels, do you ever feel like you're somebody else? Like you might be stepping temporarily into someone else's shoes? And if so, who is this fleeting person? How are they different from you? Or more importantly, how are they the same? What can you take home from this persona to fold into your own identity? What can we learn about ourselves? How can we grow?  Christopher Staudinger and Tawny Clark met while summiting Mount Kilimanjaro — he from Washington, and her from Hawaii....

Diving back into Family travel today — but for anyone listening who doesn’t have kids, or doesn’t see the family “obstacle” on the horizon, what I like about these conversations is that if you can realize that kids are just a mindset change, just like everything else, than you can get past any self-imposed barrier - you just have to change the thought. Today I’m sitting down with Kathrin Spaccarelli, from Portland Oregon - PDX - who spent the past year with her family of 4, ever...

  “A lot of people… hear the word “eco-tourism” and they think it’s just about protecting the environment. But to me, “eco” stands for ecology but it also stands for economy. And eco-tourism is not responsible unless the local communities benefit from the preservation of the eco-system. If they don’t benefit economically from it, then it has no hope.” - Bret Love In this episode, get to know the founder and mind behind Green Global Travel, and Green Travel Media — two...

Today we’re talking about something that is all the rage in Asia, particularly Japan and Korea, but not so popular here in the United States — Karaoke! In the malls of Japan, right next to the stores or food courts, they have karaoke booths — think a photo booth, except it’s people screaming Journey in a tiny room. And I’ve brought Harvey Silikovitz, a travel writer and blogger who’s done karaoke in over 35 countries and counting — onto the show to discuss what is up with karaoke,...
