Episode #3: Finding Love & Traveling Around the World for Free

In this episode of the podcast, we talk with location independent travelers Briana and John, who share their separate stories of how travel has shaped them and then ultimately led them to each other. Briana and John also share some fantastic tips on housesitting, which gives travelers the chance to live around the world for free. They also go deep into essential items that they always bring with them on the road and the difference between traveling with a partner and traveling alone.  

Covered in this episode:

  • Briana and John’s travel background—both come from the same state in the US and lived in New York City in the city but didn’t meet until they started living on the road
  • Transitioning from being a computer programmer in your home country to doing it while being location independent
  • How learning a foreign language in high school can broaden your travel horizons
  • Being location independent in your home country (you don’t have to necessarily stay in your home town)
  • How Briana and John met while traveling on the road
  • How traveling solo can teach you to feel more comfortable with being lonely
  • The difference between traveling solo and traveling with a partner
  • John and Briana’s packing tips and where they’re going next
