    E18: Sports Psychologist Scott Malcom Part 1: Seeing Psychology As A Key Part Of Improvement

    Episode 18 of the More Than Backpacking Podcast is with an old friend of mine Scott Malcom who is now an aspiring Sports Pscyhologist at Georgia Southern University.  We worked together at Camp Winaukee, a summer camp for boys in the US, and since then have not made much time to catch up. So we decided to have a big catch up and talk all things comfort zones, backpacking, sports & sports psychology. Scott is a great guy, one of the most disciplined guys I know and a hard worker which I think you can hear from this episode. He is loving his work despite long days, because he is passionate about what he is doing, and he is always trying to improve himself and his life. It was great to catch up with Scott, and stay tuned next week for Part 2 where we speak about expanding comfort zones and applying it in all areas of life.

    E16: Jump Out Of The Plane & Find The Parachute On The Way- Tarek Kholoussy on Growth & Giving Back

    Episode 16 of the More Than Backpacking Podcast is an incredible episode with Tarek Kholoussy, a guy who I met through a volunteering event he hosted through his new social organisation Nomads Giving Back. He left the corporate world behind in his 30s to travel the world & is now drawn to give back and connect people to be able to give back whether they are travelling, nomadic, or expats. We had a great chat also about being in the passenger seat of life without knowing & learning to become more aware. The more I spoke with him the more I found out new things and got more inspired myself. It’s an amazing conversation & one of the best I have had whilst living around the world. Go follow @NomadsGivingBack on social to support Tarek, maybe you or someone you know can help them & watch out for part 2 next week where we hear about Tarek pushing his mind & body to new limits including a marathon at Everest Basecamp!! Follow me on Instagram @doneill05 & the amigos @JustThreeAmigos to keep up with our travel, projects & giving back. Have a good one boys and girls.
