Season three has been a roller coaster ride of emotions, from Laura Bingham to Travis Merrigan and everything in between. Of course, Hayden, Cody, and Nicole have to answer for the questions that Hayden has been pushing for the listeners to send in all season, and they come together to do just that in the final episode of season three - the Q&A.

Hayden reads questions from Chris Williams, Pete James, Jan, Lakshmi Prahlad, Tom Griffiths, Billy Chavez, Mike Cowl, and Nikola Nováková. The team answers questions about overcoming a lack of social skills, finding a way to collect and organize your travel bucket list and online content, and whether or not travelers should be going off the beaten path when in an untouched environment. They also talk about finding things you never knew you were looking for through travel and how to travel on your own. Cody answers a question specifically about composition, and the whole team answers questions about their favorite music to listen to while traveling.

The team is excited for the upcoming season four and all of the new aspects that are coming with it, including a weekly email and weekly Facebook live videos. Thank you for sharing season three with the time, and enjoy season four when it comes!

 
  • 2:27 - Hayden reads the first question, from Chris Williams:
    • “What would you say is the best way to engage in conversation, to overcome lack of social skills whilst travelling throughout a completely foreign land?”
  • 6:57 - The team answers the second question, from Pete James:
    • “Love the show. Question about the tools you have come across to discover and collect travel inspiration. I often find travel blogs have loads of great info about destinations and I copy the interesting information I find into a (messy) doc and a bookmarks folder knowing that someday I will visit. There must be a better way?!? How do you collect and organise your travel bucket list and awesome content you find online?”
  • 10:13 - Cody, Hayden, and Nicole talk about the third message, from Jan:
    • “Hello Travel-stories-Team, I just listened to an episode of your podcast and I wanted to give you a quick feedback to a topic which I think is very important. Sean Whitehead mentioned in the podcast episode 10 from season 2 (Somebody ‘Alp’ me) that he went to Iceland and drove off the main roads to find this cool place in the mountains. I just came back from a trip to Iceland as well and as I was traveling through the country I saw a lot of trails, that lead from the main road into untouched nature. These scars do much damage to the surface, because the ground on Iceland is very soft and mushy due to its porous volcanic stones and ashes; it takes decades to heal and you can see these trails very clearly even after many years. There are actually brochures in every tourist information centre on Iceland telling you not to drive off-road. I also found amazing and impressive spots in Iceland while staying on the main roads. And yes, I know, tourists can be very annoying and can ruin this “I am alone in the mountains”-feeling, but there is a reason that these tourist-spots exist: to protect nature from everybody trample over untouched nature and leave behind human footprints. In 2010 there were about 480.000 tourists visiting Iceland, today the number has increased to 1,7 million people. So you see it is very important to protect this unique landscape as it is, as more and more tourists come to this place. Because the images of these tracks are still fresh in my mind, I wanted to tell you about this. Keep on traveling, your podcast is very entertaining.”
  • 17:15 - The team talks about the fourth message, from Lakshmi Prahlad:
    • “Someone said "Traveling is about finding those things you never knew you were looking for". This quote always gets me thinking in what ways travel changed me, and what I have gained, which i never thought I would. Travel gets us access to so many different cultures, interactions with beautiful humans across the globe, traditions and many more things. I would like to know your perspective on the quote and maybe share some experience through your travels? And must say - Your way of connecting to the listeners (Big fan of your voice), Cody's background scores, and Nicole's writing is just amazing! You guys are awesome!”
  • 22:31 - Cody answers the fifth question, from Tom Griffiths:
    • “Hey guys, love the show- it must take a lot to put the episodes together, and I love that. Even though I do like to travel, my question isn't actually about travel. I'm an aspiring composer and I love what Cody does on the show. My question is, does he compose a new bit of music each week for the show or does he have a library of past compositions he's using, and how does he know what type of music to write?”
  • 27:42 - Hayden reads off the sixth message, from Billy Chavez:
    • “Hello! My names billy I'm 19 years old and I'm a rock climber hippy vegetarian. I have plans for a trip to Bali Indonesia I'm planning on leaving in October returning in January All my life I've felt this need for adventure and that's the reason I'm going. But I have a problem. I recently got into a bad break up with my first love. Now I'm slightly nervous to go alone. I know you say to travel alone is better. I'm just emotional and not sure what to do.”
  • 32:54 - Hayden reads the penultimate question, from Mike Cowl:
    • “Just to let you know your show is much appreciated. Am a Brit who moved to the US in the 80's and haven't stopped traveling around the country (mostly work related). My first job included many months driving a converted Winnebago to put on product presentations. I saw the US at the grassroots level often traveling with the local rep. The joke was that I would have to find a real job after this gigg!! Yes to going overseas to visit & explore other countries but there's a heck of a lot to see in the USA. Keep up a great show.”
  • 38:29 - The team answers the final question, from Nikola Nováková:
    • “Love the podcast!! I love travel, and I love music. My question is, what's your favourite music to listen to when you're traveling?”
