Tina was your average 20-something, with a good job and living with her parents in the Bronx. Two weeks later she's living alone in India with no plans and no return ticket. Oh, and she didn’t even speak the language. In this episode, Angelina tells Tina’s story and dives into the world of solo travel and what motivates people to pick up their lives and move to somewhere they’ve never been. There’s a wedding, a possible kidnapping, and a ton of travel motivation. Stay til the end for a listener story about gangsters in Nicaragua. For anyone thinking of living the nomad lifestyle, listen up!
