EPISODE 20 OF MY EXTREME HOLIDAYS PODCAST OUT NOW: BLOGGING FROM PARADISE!

How can travel change your life and shape your career? Learn how to become a successful blogger with my guest, Ryan Biddulph:

More than anything it was the fact that my life in New Jersey, for me, was survival mode.  So I wasn’t really thinking about following a passion, doing something that felt fun, doing something that freeing.  I was predominantly making my choices from the fear of ‘I better have enough money so I don’t starve’.  And I started thinking about – holy crow! – I’m living my life based on these intense feelings based on fear and scarcity and poverty, so when I thought about being abroad it was like a game changer because not only was I free of that matrix of fear, I was building my business.

Even though Kimberly’s life was threatened twice, she still remained determined to help:

MY INTERVIEW WITH HELPYOUFIND.ME

Contrary to myth, I have come across many more solo women travelers than men. Generally, I find men travel with friends or their partners.

It was a pleasure (and such fun!) speaking to HelpYouFind.Me about my greatest love: travel! You can learn about the benefits and challenges of solo travel, the safest places to visit, as well what inspired me to set up my Extreme Holidays Podcast and how I got the show on the road!

MY FAVOURITE PHOTOS FROM NEPAL

One of the great things about travelling is the people you meet.

My dear friend, Bibek Pandey, who is a sherpa/mountain guide in Nepal, recently sent me some amazing photos he has taken from Labuche Peak high camp at night. It was simply stunning with the huge moon, and the orange mountaineering tents with the magnificent Himalayan Peaks silhouetted in the background partially covered in mist.  

It got me thinking about some of my most favourite photos I’ve taken in Nepal which I wanted to share with you.

EPISODE 9: CHRISTMAS TRAILER 2021

UPDATE SINCE MY LAST PODCAST

I was starting to feel really unsafe on the island. My partner moved out for a while to catch his breath. Being home alone was daunting. I was told the mafia had a list of people they were planning on dealing with, and my name was getting closer to the top. 

Extract from Curse of the Turtle: The True Story of Thailand’s “Backpacker Murders” by Susanne Buchanan

This week I got a taste of what my guest, Suzanne Buchanan, has had to endure for the last seven years after being trolled on Twitter. It culminated on Friday when a graphic photo of the corpse of one of the murdered backpackers on Koh Tao was posted on my feed.
