Episode 18: Pick Your Souvenirs – Tattoos, Cans of Air or Hello Kitty?

Tattoos from Italy, parts of the wall from Berlin and toilet paper from Vegas, these are the kind of souvenirs that we and our guests have brought home from our travels. Every souvenir brings with it its own unique memories and feelings that will stay with us after we get back home. (Yes, even that toilet paper from Vegas!)

Our friends Emily and Kelley from the podcast Wining About Herstory are continuing the story of Juliane Koepcke with us in this episode.

Vanessa and Rinat take a short trip to the future in this episode, not before talking a little bit about our current and recent travel (Vanessa is talking with us from Ottawa!). We talk about what the future of travel will bring, in the short term and in the long term.

This time, we’re continuing our conversation with Zack Giffin from “Tiny House Nation” (on Netflix and FYI).

Episode 11: Zack Giffin from “Tiny House Nation” – Quality over Quantity

We enjoyed having Zack Giffin on the podcast for part 1 of a small talk on small houses (or – “Tiny Houses“). You may know Zack from “Tiny House Nation” on Netflix, as he is one of the co-hosts of the show! And he is “kind of a big deal” in the tiny house world. We talked with Zack about minimalism, about the needed change in housing as society makes a shift away from the conventional nuclear family structure, and about choosing experiences over possessions. Zack also tells us about his personal choice of living in a tiny house to be able to ski almost full time. Can you imagine packing all that you own into a tiny house on wheels and turning your life into every skier’s dream?

Episode 10: Gamifying Your Travel with Yu-Kai Chou, Part 2

We’re back with a second episode to talk about gamification and travel with Yu-Kai Chou. This time, we have a question from a listener, Paul from Edmonton, who is a camp guide in Canada. Yu-Kai suggests a fun way to gamify activities for him. More for grown ups, we also discuss with Yu-Kai how to use gamification to overcome hesitancy when trying new things when we travel. And finally (make sure to listen for this one!) Yu-Kai tells us how he gamifies his own life and gives us a recipe that you can use to gamify your own! Enjoy.

Episode 9: Gamifying Your Travel with Yu-Kai Chou, Part 1

Yu-Kai Chou is a renowned figure in gamification and we’re excited to have him on our podcast. We talk about the core drives that are the basis for what makes games fun for us and how these core drives are related to travel. It turns out, these drives are prebuilt in travel and you can use your awareness of them to gamify your travel! We cover road trips, hiking, and other types of travel and how to make them more fun. This is part 1 of our interview with Yu-Kai and part 2 will be released for our next episode.
