Christenson is the host of the Amateur Travel Podcast which talks about different
locations around the world and what to do and see there. It is
essentially an audio travel guide to help plan your trip. This
gives the best long term value and is evergreen content.
In this show we talk about Chris's travel experience and experience
working in Silicon Valley. He started doing a show just on his own
travels and then to get more material by interviewing people about
different cities and countries. He also talks about how he makes
his work coincide with his travels. He also talks about how even
when he is offered free trips he sometimes rejects them because it
is not a good fit. Then he talks about his motivation of doing the
podcast and the great stories about different cultures especially
in places that you have never gone to before.
Can travel be more than just a fun thing to do? Could it also provide some benefit and learning experiences later in life? I have always thought this and this is why I have relentlessly travelled the world and now have been to over 80 countries. I have always thought that I was planting the seeds of wisdom while in faraway lands. Through experiences with foreign people, cultures, concepts, and ways of doing things I learned much more than anything I could've done while at home. I interview amazing guests, bestselling authors, scientists, successful business people, dating experts, travel junkies, polyglots (people who speak more than 3 languages), and anybody who I think is interesting for the growth of our listeners and I as people. I think by doing this we can plant the seeds of wisdom which will ultimately lead to our success in career, business, money, relationships, self-worth, and generally being a more well-rounded person. But it requires you to be active making this happen. What do you think?
