Top 10 Challenges Of Living Abroad w/ BoTik Quest 

Do you yearn to live abroad? Have you put on your rose-colored glasses when you daydream about it or are you living more in the realities of life in another country?

We are hanging out once again with my fellow ex-pat, podcaster, and good friend, BoTik Quest, and while last time we talked about the reasons to love living abroad, today we are getting into the not so "mac & cheese" parts of it. We are definitely getting super honest about the downsides, the struggles, and the realities of it but we are so happy to have made the leap years ago and encourage you to look into it if you are interested.

While we make these lists independently, you will have to listen to see how many things made it to both lists...any guesses?

What would you guess as being the biggest challenge of living abroad? If you are an ex-pat already, did any of yours match up to ours? Let me know by sending me an audio message (please) or shoot me an email over at Jason@ZeroToTravel.com.

Today's episode is being sponsored by the amazing folks over at Tortuga Backpacks which, you know, are my favorite backpacks in the world.

Love Is NOT Tourism w/ Krishni Metivier 

How would you cope with being separated from your loved one thousands of miles away indefinitely? 

Today we are talking with Krishni Metivier who is a part of the love is not tourism movement which is fighting for the reunion of people who are separated from family and partners due to COVID-19. Not everyone is in a foreign country because they are tourists, in fact, there are many who are there to connect with their long-distance partners or family members. With so many people being affected this movement is diligently working hard with governments to amend the travel restrictions to help the mental and physical toll that separation is causing across the world. They also understand and want to cooperate with appropriate safety measures to include paying for testing and quarantining until a negative result is received or agreeing to a full 14 day quarantine period so it is a safety-first decision. 

Krishni is here to talk about her experience and to show us that we all are capable of great change in the world even during some of the toughest times. We also dive into travel talk, her research for her PH.D., the importance of ethnomusicology, and so much more!
