614: Travel to Expand Your World Viewpoint | Freestyle Friday

About This Episode:

I by no means consider myself a digital nomad, we have an office and a great staff, but I believe that traveling increases your worldview and is incredible for personal development. 

I've learned a few things:

  • Look on Groupon or Living Social (They're the same company now, pick one)
  • Get an airline miles credit card; Capital One Venture Card is pretty good from what I've heard
  • Check out Travel Zoo; only sign up for their top 20 email list otherwise you'll get spammed
  • Book closer to travel to get better rates
  • Use sites like Orbitz for last-minute deals, but do your first search in an incognito window because they'll cookie you and the price will go up
  • Download Google maps for the cities you're going to on WiFi; they'll work on airplane mode (including the GPS, which is EPIC).
  • Use public transportation (Trains ROCK), many cities sell a 48 hour or 7-day pass for unlimited public transportation
  • Avoid taxis, they can be expensive or untrustworthy, use Uber where available. 
  • Eat off the beaten path, it won't be what the people really eat and will be 5x as expensive; stay in residential areas.
  • If you are confused and need help, walk into the largest name brand hotel, collect yourself, act like you're staying there and ask for help.
  • Travel in the offseason; it's cheaper
  • Visit sites on a weekday
