Apart from my regular travel episodes, I put out these interviews as bonus episodes whenever I meet an interesting traveler. And today is no exception.

Calling himself Travel TomTom, he has been a full-time traveler since 2012, and like me, he wants to visit all the countries in the world.

124 - Massive Detour to Get to Guinea

5/14/2019
More
Friends told me that going overland into Guinea could easily get me held up by the police for no other reason than they wanted a bribe. So they recommended that I went all the way back to Dakar in Senegal and take a flight to Conakry. They also said that they didn't really like the country. Would I have a different experience? I met some of the locals, and in this first of two episodes from Conakry, you can meet the first one. It's Tim, a French expat who likes the country a...

5/6/2019
More
Guinea-Bissau is one of the poorest countries in Africa – and hereby the world. I travel with minibus from Cap Skirring to the capital Bissau, and by random coincidence my host is a countryman.

I've been to Senegal before, but that was in Dakar in the northern part of the country. After a week in The Gambia in the middle of Senegal I'm heading further south to the beach town, Cap Skirring in the southern part of the country.

Podcast #117 - Welcome to Senegal

2/18/2019
More
In last weeks episode, we were making our way down through The Sahara Dessert. And our plans kept changing. Partly because of me recovering from my pneumonia and partly because promises weren’t kept. We weren’t picked up and driven down to the capital of Mauritania in a nice big Mercedes - just the two of us. Hours later we were seven people in a smaller very old beat up Peugeot station wagon. When I left you in the last episode, I was trying to cross the border between Western Sahara and...

Podcast #114 - A Real Nomad and My Visit to a Hospital

1/28/2019
More
In this episode, I speak with Mokhtar, who has grown up as a true nomad in the Sahara Desert. Just until he became a teenager, he was almost nothing but his family, a bunch of goats and a lot of sand — no TV, radio or other things that we take for granted. Also, he does not know when he was born beyond the fact that it was in 1962 and it was under a sandstorm. I'm talking with him just before we're on our way back to Tiznit. I have become ill and need to go to the hospital. You can join me...

We have a lot to cover in this episode. I’m in the southern part of Morocco and first we visit the little city, Tiznit. Edvard and I become good friends with the local butcher, Omar. Them we travel further south to another small city called Tan-Tan. On the way there we’re stopped twice, first by the customs and then by the police. Both times they only want to see the passports from me and Edvard. Very weird, but an indication that we are getting close to Western Sahara. In Tan-Tan we meet...

Podcast #110 - Martin, a Different Nomad

1/11/2019

As a digital nomad, this guy is different than most of us, as you will get to hear in this episode. Also, he is one of the nicest guys I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know through the Nomad Cruise. His name is Martin Locklear, he's American, and he works for Zip Recruiter as a programmer. We both have a few things in storage back home, we have both been traveling full time around two and a half years, but this is where the similarities stop… Martin has a very different way of...

1/7/2019

In this episode I am still in Rabat, Morocco and continue the hunt for visas. It can be hard to get a taxi on the streets in Rabat, so on Monday morning we booked an Uber, even though Uber technically is illegal here in Morocco. And the first Uber driver was a young bright guy with a good English. He had a lot of dreams for for himself and his country, and seemed like a good representative for the new generation of Morocco. So I decided to give him my five questions that didn’t work out...

He took action – he was organizing events for entrepreneurs and digital nomads for years and created a Facebook group for digital nomads called Global Digital Nomad Network (currently one of the largest of its kind with over 36,000 members). One day in 2015 he came...
