Before I started traveling, I listened to a lot of travel podcasts, watched a lot of travel YouTube channels and bought a lot of travel books – both audiobooks, e-books, and paper books.
One book I got in both the audio and the paper version. That book was Vagabonding by Rolf Potts, and it inspired me to call myself The Radio Vagabond.
I met Rolf Potts at the travel media conference TravelCon in Austin Texas just before he was to give the closing keynote in front of a room full of travel bloggers, YouTubers, and podcasters.
It was fantastic to meet one of my heroes. One who inspired me a lot in my planning to go traveling. If you want to be inspired too, get the book Vagabonding. In my opinion, it’s the best book about living this lifestyle. Period.
On Monday morning you’ll get another regular travel podcast where I’m heading to Washington DC, and pass through Charlottesville. You know the city where there were “fine people on both sides”, according to Trump. I had to pass through to see the notorious statues.
