This week I was lucky enough to sucker my girlfriend (Jessica Dixon) into being on the show and talking about some of the things we do to keep this relationship going while we travel. From Compassion to patience we chat about the things that help us make out travels much easier.
Lost in Transit Podcast
In last weeks episode I talked about over tourism, what it is and a little about how you can help. On this weeks episode I share some alternative destinations to help you avoid the massive crowds. Below you can find links to guide books for each destination.
There is a problem some of the worlds most popular tourist attractions are facing and its called overtourism. Over tourism is what happens when a place becomes too popular and tourism becomes unsustainable. In this episode I talk about my experiences with overtourism, some ways to combat it and posting responsibly on social media while you travel.
In this episode I recall some highlight from my big 4 trips I took in 2018. 3 of with were with Jessica Dixon and one with Brian Stowell. IN 2018 I went to 13 different countries and 4 of those were new. Ive been trying to complete the Century travelers list of countries and territories. Needless to say thats going slow.i also keep calling them the century travelers club when its actually the Travelers Century Club. So i Talk about traveling by train from Bangkok to Cambodia. I talk about the nice people at The Local Guesthouse and brew pub in Siem Reap. Theres a quick little stories of visiting one of the driest places on earth, Micro countries (Monaco, San Marino, Vatican City), and our time at the Munduk Molding Plantation. I Love Phants Lodge is an outstanding place to interact with elephants who are being rehabilitated for the wild. I also talk about traveling alone. One thing I don’t discuss this episode that I will link are some of my favorite travel Items.

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.
