Get ready to depart from Thailand and explore the world in Part 2 of Kristin's interview with Erick, the Minority Nomad.

Erick reveals his favorite travel destinations on each continent. After visiting 95 countries, he shares the place he'd recommend to you the most for exploring, adventure, learning, and nightlife.

Kristin and Erick also discuss how to best cope with loneliness,  burnout, and the dark sides of traveling. 

They contemplate the difference between who you are at home versus the person you become while traveling abroad. And, (as usual), much more!

 

EPISODE 108 TOPICS DISCUSSED:

  • How to find your community abroad (even if you're an introvert) and overcome loneliness while traveling. 
  • Erick's favorite countries in the world and why. 
  • The difference between your identity at home and the other "you" that emerges through international travel. 
  • The gentrification of digital nomad hotspots like Georgia, Lisbon, Bali, and Thailand. 
  • The dark side of the travel and tourism industry and how it could have impacted the late Anthony Bourdain. 
  • Why traveling abroad is safer for Black men than living in the U.S. 

 

QUOTES: 

  • I believe most friendships are friendships by proximity and convenience.
  • The people we meet through travel are the people who make us who we truly are.
  • When you go abroad, you don’t have those shackles [of society] on you anymore.
  • I enjoy being wrong. It’s exciting to me because that means I’m learning. 
  • There’s a difference between traveling and content creation.
  • Photography is my outlet for how I see the world. And it’s not always f*king fuchsia.

Thank you to Magus63 for leaving the following review: 

I follow Kristin on every social network and her content has been of great help to open my way through the digital nomad world. Particularly her podcast is my everyday companion to commute to work. She always has up-to-date and quality content. Recently I also reached out to her, she was very nice and very helpful in solving my doubts. Thank you very much Kristin for your efforts, from a soon-to-be digital nomad from Argentina.
