    Hi Ben! Keep up the good work with your channel. Perseverance, passion and being your own unique self will help you get you where you want to go. As for the course, you can pay 3 instalments of $99.

  4. Hey everyone ! My name is Matthew Tasker and I've been in and out of the travel sphere all my life but it became one of my biggest passions back in 2015. I'm originally from Northern England but my parents moved out to the South of France back in 2004 when I was 11. I guess that the combination of living in various different cultures and my travels have opened me up to all the possibilities beyond what our society dictates. I'm so glad to have met Kristen and Siya twice (once at Vidcon 2015 and the 2nd time at the first LTA Summit in January 2017) and I can wholeheartedly testify that they're some of the nicest people I've ever met. I've been working hard all summer in order to kick-start my biggest adventure yet. On October 13th 2017, I leave Nice, France and set off on my first ever round the world trip. I'm passing through the UK, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, South Korea and Hawaii. Then after Hawaii, I'm headed off to California to meet up with some of my LTA friends to attend the 2nd Live The Adventure summit in Kern Valley. I can't wait to see everyone again and I've heard that a certain pair and their airstream Luna will be there . After the summit I might go to either San Francisco or Mexico City (or both ), then I fly back to London. I could have ended the trip there but I decided to add a detour to Gibraltar and Marrakech, Morrocco. I'm so excited : 44 days, 9 to 10 countries and all this for about $850-900 plus a few frequent flyer miles ! Who says travel is expensive ? Looking forward to chatting with you guys (and if you're interested in seeing my adventures, check out my channel here : https://www.youtube.com/user/matthewtasker)
  5. Hellllllo!

    I would actually love that. I have a lot of questions and will have many more once we actually get the land.
  6. Hey everyone

    I'm Alexis, my family are Canadian but I've not yet been to Canada I was born in Northern England. I home school my autistic son who is now 14 and travel managed to change his life for the better. He can now communicate and will talk to others which before he wasn't able to do. I still have family living Near Duncan BC so one day I'm hoping to finally get over that way. I love to travel and being outdoors, camping, climbing and caving are always on my hit list where ever I end up. Hope everyone else is good. Can't wait to talk to more travelers. Does anyone else travel with children?

  8. Best Ways to Grow from Scratch

    Thanks for creating the forum Kristen! Figured I may as well join for networking purposes. My travel (and other things) channel is currently just short of 200 subs and I'd like it to grow based on bringing people and opportunities into my life, so ad revenue isn't a priority for me. I was very interested in your course but I wasn't sure if I could still pay for it in instalments like before, I couldn't seem to find the option to specify that. Did something happen?
  9. Hellllllo!

    My friend lived in Ethiopia though I haven't been. Tanzania is next on my radar as my sister and I are going to try to climb Kilimanjaro! *fingers crossed* Love the idea of your commune/community garden. I was the Director of an (anarchist) worker's cooperative back in Canada, so I'm definitely into/familiar with communal working and living. More than happy to chat sometime and share the ins and outs of back-breaking organic farming
  10. Best Ways to Grow from Scratch

    There are so many factors. What do you hope to gain from your channel? Is this something you wish to have as a hobby or grow as a business? Nadine Sykora (Hey Nadine on YouTube), Matt Kepnes (Nomadic Matt) and I created a video course that teaches you how to start and grow your YouTube channel. We include a lot of great information in the course based on everything we've learned over the past 7+ years. You can check it out here: https://superstarblogging.nomadicmatt.com/travel-video-course/
  11. Hellllllo!

    Hi Chris! Nice to meet you. I'm so jealous you're in Kenya. Siya and I both want to travel there in the next year. I'd also love to go to Ethiopia. Have you been there? Also, so cool about how you used to farm in Ontario!!! Man I need to pick your brain. We are looking to buy land and build a commune and of course have a massive community garden. I love the idea of growing my own food. Thanks for sharing a bit about how you are with us and looking forward to connecting. - Kristen
  12. Hellllllo!

    Hey everyone! Chris here, a Canadian that lives in Sweden...that is currently in Nairobi, Kenya! I'm a remote worker, so I have the luxury of being able to hop around (assuming I can find reliable wifi!). I spent my formative years farming in Ontario, managing an organic farm for about 11 years. I also co-owned a restaurant and picked up a university degree in history along the way. I'm a big nerd (Star Wars and D&D anyone?) and spend my free time reading, writing, hiking, and dabbling in chess. Looking forward to meeting some fellow travellers!
  13. Hey everyone! I just started my channel and I'm wondering what's the best advice for someone to start a channel from the beginning? Would love to hear your experiences! thanks!

    Awesome! Should we post an intro here or in a separate thread?

  16. Hey friends! Over the past 4 years since I made the below video, I've received hundreds of emails and messages from many of you who are also going through or have gone through Post Travel Depression. Coming home from a life changing trip can be challenging. The one things you need to know if you're having a hard time coping is that you're not alone. The best thing to do is to talk about it. This is a safe place for you to discuss your feelings without any judgement. What you're feeling is completely normal. If you haven't seen the below video, give it a watch. I really hope it helps you to start understanding what you're going through and again that you're not alone. Love Kristen.
