Today we're interviewing #inspiringnomad and travel coach, Robert Schrader from Leave Your Daily Hell!
We first came across Robert's blog last year when we were looking for people who had quit their jobs to travel the world and earn a living doing it. His story has inspired thousands of people over the past few years and as a result, his blog has grown to become one of the top in the travel niche.
We are very excited to be interviewing Robert today and showing you another way of looking at and living life. If you're feeling boxed in, bored or unhappy, we hope that this inspires and encourages you to leave your daily hell and travel more!
When did you first start travelling independently and where did you go?
My first independent trip was in 2005, to the UK and Europe.
What then inspired you to travel more?
Everything inspired me to travel more. My curiosity about the world; my boredom with “home”; my increasing awareness of my own mortality.
What are your 2 favourite travel destinations and why?
Thailand and Turkey. Thailand because the Thais managed to avoid colonialism and maintain the integrity of their ancient society through to the modern day; Turkey because it’s quite literally where East meets West.
What is your travel style and what kind of impact does this have on the way you budget, save and earn money before and during your travels?
I like to travel comfortably, but simply. Because I live much in the way I travel, I don’t have to adjust much. It’s like the old saying, “if you always tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.”
What strategies do you use to fund this lifestyle?
I post ads on my site (Leave Your Daily Hell) and also, I offer a trip planning service (Travel Coaching, more info here: http://leaveyourdailyhell.com/
How To Create a Life of Travel
What pre-travel money saving tips can you give us?
Stop drinking. Drinking is not only expensive and negatively impacts your health (which is a priceless asset as a traveler!), but precludes additional spending which further depletes your travel fund.
What are your top go-to resources for booking flights, accommodation and tours?
What is the most important thing you have learned through travel and with that in mind, what valuable advice can you give aspiring travellers?
Jump – a net will appear.
And finally, what have you got planned next?!
I’m headed to Cuba on July 12.
You do not want to miss a Cuban adventure! Follow all of Robert's next moves over on his blog http://leaveyourdailyhell.com, Facebook page and Twitter to get inspired and start planning your own epic journey.
Thank you to Robert for giving us an insight into his daily travel life and reminding us that life is short and to go out and live it!
