Global Nomad on Getting the Travel Bug - Francis Tapon - United Planet Radio Ep. 30
To say Francis Tapon is a traveler is an under-statment. He’s more of a guru whose committed his life to seeing every little corner of the world. Mostly by foot. He’s walked the two major trails in North America, one of which took him 5,000 miles south into Mexico, and he spent five years walking through Africa, stopping along the way in various areas in an attempt to gain a better understanding of the human condition that exists elsewhere than from where he was born. While on his journey he met his wife and realized that he had found his calling. Now, Francis has dedicated himself to traveling the world, writing and hosting a podcast on which he discusses his exploits and provides advice for those looking to embark on trans-continental journeys.

Man of Many Talents - Arnaud Collery - United Planet Radio Ep. 29
In Arnaud’s vision of the world, a few things are required. First, travel. Find a way. Any way. Work the bag checkout at the grocery store. Deliver newspapers in the early mornings (Yes, newspapers are still in circulation). Whatever you have to do to make it work, do that. Second, learn a language, or two. Arnaud is a passionate spokesperson and storyteller. He has been traveling the world since his teenage years and hasn’t stopped for a moment. Keep in mind our conversation was done over the phone as Arnaud was in California at the time of our call so our audio is a bit spotty.
