These are travel stories no one tells. These are the awkward language barriers and the dozen-hour bus rides. Join Will Conway as he stumbles his way through the world of Instafamous twenty-somethings at hostel bars, almost poops in the middle of foreign streets and accidentally illegally immigrates to Paraguay. This is the opposite of travel porn. It’s travel diarrhea. Often literally. Always metaphorically.
New episodes every Tuesday for twenty-eight Tuesdays. If you’re in the United States or Canada, text CONNECT to (332) 877-9540 to make friends. Heaven knows Will needs a few. Otherwise, sign up for email alerts below.
If you find personal growth, empathy for others and resilience through travel, you've found your people. Join the Authentic Travelers community. And be sure to join the Facebook group - the community is active and amazing, and I love these people so much.
Authentic Travelers is the community around the Baggage Claim podcast. These are people who care deeply about using travel to grow in empathy for others and authenticity in themselves. It started as a Facebook group, but it's slowly becoming so much more than that. Each Sunday, I prompt the community with a question. The following Sunday, I release our weekly Sunday Stories video, featuring responses from members of the community.
