220: CHANGE with Kirsten Alana

“I think you can choose to be happy, and choose to explore, and choose to be fulfilled by life or you can choose to sit back and let life overwhelm you and be unhappy.

And I just found very quickly that that suits me very well.” Kirsten Alana is a former nomad turned New York based travel photographer, entrepreneur, consultant, writer,...

217: Halloween Horror Nights 25, An Immersive Theater Experience

*2015 marks the 25th anniversary of Halloween Horror Nights here at Universal Studios in Orlando. Every year since 1991, this event has grown not only at this park, but at other Universal Studios Theme Parks all around the world. Together, my wife and I got to experience the whole event as a part of a VIP press event, which included touring 9 elaborately designed haunted mazes and multiple outdoor “scare zones”. They’ve basically turned the entire theme park and nine of the professional...

216: Building a Travel Startup with Zipkick’s Jason Will

In this conversation, we delve into that inner-fuel and what it...

214: Sharing a Love for Thailand with Christophe Cappon

“We think we know the plan, right? But the plan always tends to change on us. I had no idea. But I knew that something needed to change. I grew up in the city as a teenager. I always had this intrinsic feeling that at some point I wanted to get out and to see the world. I didn’t know how that was going to happen. But there was this golden thread that was consistent. It was maybe a little buried. There were doubts and there were fears. There were other pressures, that were like ‘Stay in...

213: Keeping a Career While Traveling with Edna Zhou

The idea that you need to give up your travels in order to see the world is a common belief, but one that Edna has somehow dispelled along the way. At 18, Edna Zhou moved to Shanghai to work her way around the world. At 21, she left with almost nothing to live in Singapore — inadvertently jumpstarting an international career in sports journalism, eventually leading to one of travel writing. From there, she’d never look back - and I’m excited to bring her on the show to explore HOW...

210: Ten Years in Thailand with Scott Eddy

Today’s guest is one I had the pleasure of meeting in one of the many places he considers home, Bangkok. He took me to a cigar and whiskey bar in which they were projecting Buster Keaton on the brick wall and had a jazz singer in the corner. After a day spent on Khao San Road, and the backpacker scene there, this was a whole different side of Bangkok. The whole place felt a lot more New York than it did back alley Thailand. And that’s how where I got to know Scott Eddy, a former...

205: Being the Most Traveled Person with Mike Spencer Bown

"Good people greatly outnumber nasty people, worldwide. There is a network that existed long before facebook, and it is the network of persons of good will, who will introduce and pass you to other persons of good will, such that you can take a friendly look around a town, a nation or the world, as you like. There is no similar network among nasty people, they are on their own, and if you know what is good for you, leave them alone." – Mike Spencer Bown 23 years of adventures spent...

204: Change Your Role in Life with Jacqueline Kehoe

Jacqueline Kehoe is a travel writer and the author behind The Strange and New, a name taken from a poem that ends with a couplet which I grabbed from her website: "...But they're always tired of the things that are and they want the strange and new." I believe those two lines describe people like us, certainly me and perhaps you. In Jacqueline's words, those lines are meant "for those who have their traveling paint set in hand, who globe-trot to become, and who yearn for experiences that...
