Extra Pack of Peanuts Travel Podcast

Do you dream of going to school abroad? If living and studying while roaming the streets of your favorite European city sounds good to you then this episode will fuel and help your dreams become a reality.

Joining me today is the author of College Beyond the States: European Schools That Will Change Your Life Without Breaking the Bank, someone who is one of the world’s foremost experts on the over 1,700 schools in Europe that a student can get a bachelor’s degree from, in English, and who, for her “job”, gets to visit Europe regularly to visit these schools, Jenn Viemont from BeyondtheStates.com.

Do you allow your lack of funds to dictate your travels or lack thereof? Are you looking for an epic adventure or are you more of a micro-adventurer?

Today's guest is someone whose accomplishments will make you feel slightly guilty you didn't hit the gym yesterday since they include cycling around the world for 4 years, rowed across the Atlantic Ocean, pulled a 600-pound sled across the Empty Quarter desert & for good measure, completed an unsupported trek across Iceland by foot and pack-raft.

It’s no wonder that he was the 2012 National Geographic Traveler of the Year, and Geographic Magazine calls him “Slightly bonkers but this a wonderful thing”, Alastair Humphreys from AlastairHumphreys.com and author of 10 books, including the latest My Midsummer Morning.

Do you enjoy collecting remembrances of your travels? Are you someone who has something from every country you have visited? 

Joining me today is someone who hails from the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada, who wants to help those less fortunate be able to travel the world as well, and who has a design eye that would make my wife proud, Darryl McIvor from TravellerCollective.com.

He creates beautiful yet simple rings that are engraved with country codes that you can wear on a necklace or on a leather embossed keyring that allows you to easily carry mementos of all that places you have been in a classic and minimalist way.

These are one of my new favorite ways to celebrate the places you have gone plus allows for some great conversations to start & inspires wanderlust!

Joining me today is the author of one of my favorite books, The Hidden Europe, creator, producer, star and everything else of The Unseen Africa, and a man who has probably had more adventures in the last 3 days than I’ve had in my entire life, Francis Tapon of WanderLearn Podcast. I am so happy to have him back on the show since we last spoke almost exactly 4 years ago or 275 episodes but who is counting. Today, we are diving deep into The Unseen Africa project which includes a book and a video series and is a must see for everyone!
