In this episode we speak to Gary Arndt. He has a highly-successful blog which was listed in Time Magazine as one of the top 25 blogs in the world he is also one of the world’s most awarded travel photographers.
From Wisconsin, he sold his home back in 2007 to travel for a year or two but hasn’t stopped since – having no place of his own to call home for 9 years.
He’s visited more than 204 countries and territories around the world on the Travelers Century Club list of places, including travelling to all 50 US states and territories twice, every Canadian province three times, as well as all of the states in Australia, Germany and South Africa. He likes to explore places completely.
Gary has photographed and documented trips to over 400 UNESCO World Heritage sites and is close to seeing all 60 national parks in the USA.
Since 2009 he has been the co-host of This Week in Travel, an award-winning weekly podcast that covers travel industry news.
National Geographic said of Gary that ‘in the travel blogging world [he] is one of the big fish’, so it is certainly an ideal guest for Travel Bubble.
Gary’s choices include the country that has the second highest number of Michelin stars, another country that has the most UNESCO heritage sites, and tells us how and where he changed a law.
