Episode 13, Nomads are not super humans with Debbi
Coming onto our 13th episode, I am excited to introduce you all to one amazing soul Debbi from MyDebstination.me.
Debbi started her journey in 2013 inspired by Lord of the Rings she moved to New Zealand on a working Visa, after leaving her dream job at Disneyland. After the first trip, the travel bug bit her and since then she has never stopped. Having covered 6 continents and 75 countries thus far, she calls herself lucky that she got out and started exploring the world.
She's not the type of girl you would see posing for the 'Gram' instead she's the complete opposite. She has climbed glaciers in Iceland and New Zealand; worked on the largest cruise ship that sailed through Antarctic glaciers; bungy jumped in four countries; backpacked through Europe and the UK; ate her way through Japan; been to the “end of the world” (Ushuaia, Argentina); snorkeled with sea lions in Chile; paintballed in Uruguay; saw the Northern Lights as part of “work;” threw axes in Alaska; risked her life to see puffins in Iceland and many more things.
Calling herself a mental advocate, in this podcast we talked about the mental health problems and pros and cons of social media, hiking, dogs, foot,etc. She is here to inspire you and tell you that all nomads are not superhumans.

Episode 12, How to start living your travel dream with Absolutely Lucy
Hello, fellow nomads, today might be your favourite/lucky day because we have Lucy talking about adventure, solo female travelling, budget tips, and how she started travelling, and if this is not enough she provides you with the inspiration to get started with your dream.
Lucy is originally from the United Kingdom, she has been travelling now for almost 6 years and might be your go-to as well as favourite person after listening to her speak about travel with such joy. She went to university, got her job, and was never free to travel but her term was coming to an end at her job as a journalist and found her perfect opportunity to roam around the world. She started her journey with her first trip to Thailand which was solo and now she prefers that way only. Her reason being solo travelling already puts you out of your comfort zone and now approaching people and exposure to new culture becomes one step closer and easier. Well, to be honest, some trips might never happen if it were left to our friends?
Travelling for so many years she feels like a completely new person now, with lessons that formal education could never provide. Lucy tells that as you step in you get familiar with this lifestyle and it's addicting, and she has created a free resource for everyone out there telling how to manage resources basically a good luck charm for beginners.
Lucy’s real and transparent suggestions are all the resources and inspiration you need today!
