    Episode 139 - Travelling With Harry Mitsidis - Travelling To Every UN Country Twice, Equatorial Guinea + NomadMania

    Episode 139 - Travelling With Harry Mitsidis - Travelling To Every UN Country Twice, Equatorial Guinea + NomadMania

    Hello, and welcome to number 139! Today, I am joined by Harry Mitsidis, who has travelled to every UN country in the world...twice. Harry also runs the NomadMania community, a hub where every traveller can track their travels down to very little detail. In this bumper episode, we discuss Harry's introduction to the world of travel, how he is still finding his place in the world, how he completed every UN country by the age of 36, the funny coincidence with Equatorial Guinea, why Naura is one of his favourite places, what is a country, Harry's travel style and so much more!

    Harry's laid-back, conversational style and quirky answers provide an easy-listening, long-format interview. I tried to ask Harry some unique questions, as he is a regular on many travel podcasts, and I think I surprised him with a few. A true gentleman and a pleasure to interview. Check it out and enjoy.

    Be inspired!

    Hello, and welcome to number 138! Today, I am joined by Matthew Baxter, who has written the book series 'Super Cheap,' we talk about his latest release, Tokyo Outdoors, and living in Japan. Matthew has completed work visas in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Japan but has decided Japan is the home for him. We cover various topics such as the non-tourist local areas to take a walk, what not to say when speaking to Japanese people, the best food, Japanese culture, how Japan is an introvert's paradise, the logistics of travelling in Japan, and so much more. A real deep dive with a unique angle of an expat from the UK who has been living in Japan, specifically Tokyo, for more than ten years. Check it out!

    Episode 137 - Travelling With Tyler Wittkofsky - Full-Time Traveller, Writer, Podcaster + Coffee Lover

    Hello, and welcome to number 137! Today, I am joined by Tyler Wittkofsky, who now lives full-time on his RV based in the USA. After quitting his corporate job last year, Tyler is now a full-time digital nomad in marketing, writing, podcasting, blogging and content creation. Tyler is a creative force delving into many aspects of the creative spectrum. He has a fascinating story, and he is now embarking on a two-year trip in his RV around the USA before travelling to Canada in 2026. You can hear why he loves coffee and craft beer, supporting independent authors, writing several books, travel plans for the next 3-5 years, and why the corporate lifestyle wasn't for him.

    Enjoy and be inspired!

Love

This is such a good listen. James is funny and relatable and fosters really great conversations with guests.

author Terry Repak ,

A reflective travel podcast

What I like the most about this podcast is that James is an excellent and intuitive interviewer. He really gets to the heart of a person’s journey, both physical and emotional, and is very sincere in wanting to connect with fellow travelers. He brings out the best in his interview subjects!

rrrrrrrraaaaaaaannnnnnnn ,

What a treat to tune into these adventures

James brings such character to the show with interesting stories and recommendations. The interviews are class and interesting to hear about not just travel journeys but what’s new and happening in the travel world. He’s great at keeping with the industry and making it fresh and is fun to listen with his accent. 10/10 recommend.
