This is a podcast about people. A collection of stories from across the globe. Let's face it, we are all pretty dang busy these days. With a limited budget, and even more scarce vacation days, it can be hard to look beyond your day to day life. We keep hearing the benefits of travel such as the sparks of creativity, the understanding of people and cultures, and the digging into yourself to see whats inside. Although I can't provide everything travel has to offer through the convenience of your earbuds, what I can do is let you meet people you would never normally met. Meet poets in London, chefs in southern Germany, ghost hunters in Seattle, and an architect in Malaysia. They are all here, and generously share their stories so that we can see a different side of life. These are real stories, told by real people, that really live on the same planet we do, and the more people I meet the more I realize that despite our differences we are all just humans trying to survive on the same rock we call Earth. We are all people.

    Home Sweet Home

    Home Sweet Home

    (Episode 70) Columbus, Ohio. The trip has come to an end. As the dust settles on a long, tough, amazing, exhausting, and unbelievable two years, Jackie and I reminisce about the trip and ask each other some burning questions about our favorite moments and struggles coming home. It has been a wild ride and I want to thank every one of you for tuning in to the stories and moments from the road. This isn't a goodbye but rather a see you later because I heard the travel bug is seasonal and we have a good chance of catching it again.

    The Buda Bulldog

    The Buda Bulldog

    (Episode 69) Budapest, Hungary. Everyone has ebbs and flows throughout their life, but how we respond to each twist and turn can greatly impact the trajectory of the next phase. Our guest, Balu Szilvássy, has made a career, relationship, and life by taking on hard challenges and persevering. From Muay Thai, to coding, to attending a high school that was taught primarily in a different language, Balu refused to give up and that refusal has built the life that he lives today. He calls it his bulldog mentality, and it's a great reminder for all of us that sometimes you just need to get after it to get where you want to go.

    Mom

    Mom

    (Episode 68) Gaborone, Botswana. Life can be complicated, but identifying your mother is usually an item on the short list of things that are easy to do. I say usually because today's guest, Stanley Nchena Kaseke, did not have this luxury. Stanley's family life was anything but straightforward, but the gift from this situation was the love and support from three different mothers throughout his lifetime. This episode is a tribute to all the Mom's out there, biological or not, that love their children unconditionally. Motherly love is what made Stanley the man he is today, and I know that he is far from alone in that category.

    Typical Brothers

    Typical Brothers

    (Episode 67) Bratislava, Slovakia. Growing up, Kris and Mike Cebecauer fought constantly. That's what brothers are supposed to do. The little sibling always plots the demise of the older as the older attempts to maintain control. It's funny how time works though because now the two brothers have teamed up as they try to find their place in the world. No small task, but that is what brothers are for.

    Becoming Christiana

    (Episode 66) Nicosia, Cyprus. Christiana Polyviou grew up a good girl. She lived on her little island of Cyprus and did everything that was asked of her. That all changed when life suddenly took her to the metropolis of Athens. Christiana thrived in the city. She quickly made friends, got a degree, and was out in the world seeing and exploring everything she could. It is truly amazing what a change in scenery can do. It can challenge you in ways you never thought were possible yet unlock a piece of you that you didn't know exist. In the case of Christiana, the change let her become who she truly was.

Entrepreneur meets Nomad meets Lifehack

Love love love this podcast, am honestly obesessed. As an entrpreneur who loves to travel there's so much to learn about different tips and tricks which make my life so much easier. These stories and dreams keep me going and the clever insights remind me there's always something more to do, be, and learn.

Felt like I was there...

My daughter is in Thailand right now as I write this. I got a good feel for what it's like there. Loved the interview with "Superman". Nathan is natural and really listens to his guest. Loved it!
