If you keep up with the travel blogs, you’ve probably heard all the stories of everyday people who walked away from their everyday lives to venture out and live a life of full time travel. Many of these people are full time digital nomads who’ve found a way to make money online while traveling and running their travel blogs.

While these stories are inspiring, they all start sounding the same after awhile – right?


So I’ve started an interview series that highlights some people that you should know about that don’t fit so neatly in the travel blogging bubble. These people are travel game changers. Some are traveling with a unique angle, others are travel entrepreneurs, and some even work for other companies in the travel industry. But all of these people share one thing in common – they travel with purpose!

These are the inspiring, true stories of Travel Trailblazers
