Travel Stories Podcast

You're here because you love travel. You know what, man? I get it. Maybe you're mid-travel right now- on a bus in Vietnam, or maybe you've just come back from Argentina and you miss the freedom? Either way, seasons 1-5 will give you stories from world travelers, complete with musical scores and interview sections. Season 6 is where I took you guys with me around every country in mainland Europe on my motorcycle (Gloria). Now we're getting onto The Hayden Lee Show - less travel, more Hayden. Is that good thing? Probably not, but let's give it a go.

Have you ever decided to take a trip and just taken off?

Or are you more the type to sit down and plan out every second of your journey before you set foot in an airport?

Hayden Lee brings back guest Guy Earnshaw, our pigeon-fearing friend from our last episode, to help him count down six travel tips concerning planning during traveling. The two of them offer unique perspectives - Hayden likes to be able to do things on a whim and have minimal planning, while Guy likes to sit down with a map and make out a plan and a schedule and a list of things to do, but be open to spontaneous experiences.

If you have decided you want to travel, regardless of whether you plan your adventures by the second or if you enjoy the freedom of backpacking and couchsurfing without a plan, Hayden and Guy will give you six helpful travel tips before you head out on your journey.

 

  • 0:20 - Guy Earnshaw, from the last episode, joins Hayden to help give travel tips
    • Hayden, on one hand, likes to be able to do things on a whim and have minimal planning
    • Guy, on the other hand, likes to sit down with a map and make out a plan and a schedule and a list of things to do, but he thinks it is truly important to be open to spontaneous experiences
  • 1:17 - Hayden’s Travel Tips on Planning During Traveling
    • Tip #1 - Never be married to your plan
      • Guy once had one of his best nights out ever when he had a spontaneous night with people he had never met before
      • When Hayden went to North and South Vietnam, he would travel on his motorbike first, then mark where he traveled on the map, rather than the other way around
    •  Tip #2 - Have a physical map
      • Your physical map can bring you into an adventure mindset that makes you a “traveler” - second only to your traveler’s hat!
    •  Tip #3 - Get a handle on your money
      • Guy has a relatable anecdote about the first time he went to a casino while he was in Perth
    •  Tip #4 - Check for last-minute deals
      • Hayden’s continued anecdote about when he had to get a last-minute flight out of New York using SkyScanner to get a good, cheap flight
    • Tip #5 - Use SkyScanner!
    • Tip #6 - Couchsurf
      • If you want to maximize couchsurfing as a reliable form of accommodation, you’ll want to give your potential hosts enough notice
      • Guy has a charming anecdote about last-minute couchsurfing in Oregon
      • Couchsurfing
