So Jessica and I are in the middle of planning a trip to China in May and we needed to get our visas but after finding out the closest consulate was in San Fran we decided to use a 3rd party. After a Google search we found a company with an office in Seattle, We made a day trip out of going and having them do our visas for us. In this episode you will find out how we did our visas for china as well as a trick to get around needing confirmation of where you’re staying. I hope you enjoy the podcast.
Lost in Transit Podcast
It's been a rough week trying to finish all the Photo Blogs on my website and it led me to think about the fact that I don't only take photos for my trips but I also try and journal them as well. In this podcast I talk about the different ways you can document and remember the trips you've taken.
On this weeks episode I polled some Listener questions off of my personal and the Podcast Social Media Pages. Questions like “How the novice traveler can start” and “How to Prepare for foreign toilets”. I would like to thank all those who sent messages, for those I didn’t get to Ill keep them around for next time. I briefly talk about my photography in the episode below is a list of the camera gear I typically carry when I travel.
So first I would like to start off by saying this podcast is what I do sometimes and it’s not something you have to live by. Below you will find a list of the things I talk about that I carry with me. It will be broken up in sections much like in the podcast.
This is my home - The North Face Base Camp Duffle Size Small, Plain Black T-Shirts , Quick Dry Underwear, Socks - I usually try and wear socks with some flare. , Pants - I tend to lean towards plain old fashion levi’s. I rock those cargo shorts like a nerd. Also Swimmers , A Nice Fancy Shirt Some Thermal Undies, Anyone? and they all get stuffed in a Space Saver bag. It gets sweaty when you travel take a bandana or 2. It also get’s cold don’t forget to take a Hat. I keep all of my small things in these Eagle creek bags
I keep my camera gear in another one of those Eagle Creek Bags. Inside the bag you will find 2 Leica Q Camera Batteries, 1 Leica Battery Charger, 4 (Depending on if i’ve got my computer) 64gb SD cards, A Battery Backup, Headphones (In a pelican 1010), 2 iPhone Chargers, 2 Lighting to 1/8” adaptors.

This is the first edition of something I like to call 10 questions. For the first batch of questions I asked Dea. She let us in on the first and last countries she was in and answered 9 other questions.
Dea is probably the first person I knew who had really traveled. It only seemed natural that I have her as my first guest on the show.
For years I have always loved traveling and talking and just about anything that had to do with traveling so I figured maybe it was time to start a podcast. Welcome to the Lost in Transit Podcast.
