I love this podcast. It has inspired me to go on my first solo trip and helped me with every step in the process. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone
Thank you for this podcast!!
Every episode is so motivating and inspiring in a new way and you make these adventurous challenges seem so relatable and achievable. I just went back and listened to the episode with your sister in law about NOLS as I prepare for the NOLS semester in Patagonia and you guys had me tearing up! Thanks for sharing your experiences in this gorgeous world and the wisdom you’ve gained along the way.
Mind blowing. Life changing
Stumbled upon this by accident, but now I'm hooked. Great voice to listen to, amazing topics, and all around great content. If you haven't checked this out don't wait! Take the leap.
I want more!
I stumbled on the podcast when looking for ways to listen to more people who travel. Now, I am planning vacations around places I’ve heard from people interviewed. It’s really authentic and worth listening!
Great topics, would like more of the guest
Please let others talk more :) In some episodes, the guest is talked over the majority of the time and it would be great to get more of their perspective. Besides that, the topics are great to listen to and the tips and tricks are very helpful as someone who plans on traveling for an extended period of time.
I like the guests she has on but would love for her to work on her communication skills. She asks someone a question then constantly interrupts them while they are sharing. Could be a favorite.
I like your podcast! Love your enthusiastic attitude about exploring the world. I look forward to more travel now that my son has graduated.
Making a list❤️
I LOVE THIS PODCAST! Jackie and her guests inspire me Every. Single. Episode. I have re started my travel list and can’t wait to explore. The type of questions and easy conversational flow of this podcast are some of the factors that keep me hooked. Love. Big love!
A joy to listen to!
This is indeed one of my most favorite podcasts on travel to listen to. So inspiring! Jackie is such a joy to listen to & I always look forward to new episodes. It’s now my bucket list to go on a trip with her! She’s someone I’d really love to meet & get to know. So this podcast will do for now until I do ;)
I have always loved the podcast and use it to inspire me and give me ideas for adventures. Last summer I took a bike tour after hearing about her experiences with BikeTours.com and now after a recent podcast she did on biking through the Swiss Alps, I plan on doing that as well! Always genuine and always interesting— awesome podcast!!
I am a huge fan of travel podcasts and listen to them religiously. I listen to travel podcasts to be inspired and to gather useful information to apply to my own travels. I find Jackie to be genuine, relatable, and knowledgeable about travel. I also appreciate the experienced guests she features that bring inspiring perspectives. Please remember to include women of all ages and stages of life. Please continue to feature solo travel, unique experiences, up and coming travel destinations, off the beaten path adventures, women’s retreats, and good resources. Jackie has inspired me to go to Patagonia. And I hope to also join one of her organized trips. Keep up the good work Jackie! Thank you for the work you, and for sharing your life with your listeners. It is appreciated.
Will keep you inspired to keep traveling
Vida Simples Vida Feliz
It’s rare that I feel compelled to listen to every episode of a new to me podcast. I started listening because of planning a trip to Patagonia, but soon found that every episode has something inspiring. It reminds me why I’ve made the choices I’ve made in my life and that I always want to keep travel as a priority.
Introduced me to Podcasts
Jackie’s was the first podcast I got into and I quickly downloaded the library of episodes for my long commutes. My husband and I are currently in a two year hard savings challenge for ourselves so we can quit our jobs and attempt to travel the world for as long as we can afford it(hopefully at least a full year!) Finding Jackie’s blog was not only super inspiring with all of the guest interviews she did, but also so logistical and helpful with her budget tips. Her podcast really gives you that extra confidence that it IS possible and other people are doing it so why can’t you? Everyone thinks our plan is crazy but having Jackie’s positive optimistic voice in the back of my head, plus all of the other inspiring travelers I’ve “met” through her podcast, give me the reassurance that life is meant to be lived and risk is a part of that and you just have to plan and then take that LEAP! I know I’ve heard Jackie say she reads each review and I don’t know if you do anymore but if so, thank you so much Jackie for being the level-minded coach I need to keep my eye on my goal and giving me that extra dose of faith! :)
Jackie is Great!
Jackie is super relatable and gives great and helpful tips for traveling! Her guests are also fun and informative. Her podcast also fuels the wanderlust in me as I listen to each episode. Highly recommend!
Awesome, helpful and fun podcast
Jackie is awesome and honest about the ins and outs of traveling in a budget. She gives you information and resources to start on your own journey. She awakes your wanderlust and makes you want even more what you already know you want: to travel! But better yet, she knows there’s many ways to do it and has guests to tell you their stories and suggestions too. The podcast is fun and helpful, what else could you ask for!? Conclusions: traveling is possible for all, listen on to know how.
Inspiring, Informative and Engaging
Jackie is an inspiration for aspiring travelers everywhere. She doesn’t just give a run of the mill, “quit my job to travel the world” experience. She interviews families, kids, young and more mature adults alike. This podcast is for everyone. A must if you plan to travel. Thank you Jackie!
You’re Going to Want to Listen!
Jackie’s podcast was one of the first podcasts I ever listened to and I can not recommend it enough. Not only does she help me dream about my next travel destination, but she and her guests give actionable steps to make it happen! This is everything you’re going to want in a travel podcast!
Great tips and topics
I recently came across this podcast, which has lots of practical ideas for saving money when traveling abroad. Thank you for sharing this info with your fellow travelers!
Humble and Helpful
So many travel podcasts are pretentious and self-indulgent. Jackie does a wonderful job providing useful information in an entertaining manner. Besides, she has a great voice!
Lots of giggling and talking about which guys are hot.
Very usesful podcast!
This podscast has tons of great tips for traveling. I travel all the time and have learned a lot from Jackie. Keep up the fantastic work!
Awesome podcast! Great ideas and inspiring enthusaism.
Name says it all, her podcast is inspiring. I was aprehensive at first, because I have found that female podcasters and male podcasters have very different styles to their media. I was worried it would be overly centralized in interpersonal relationships and less about the nitty gritty about travel. I was dead wrong and have no problem admitting it. She covers everything. That said, I am truly inspired by her breaking free from traditional norms, and can't wait to see where she ends up. It's like a good book that doesn't end.
Great travel podcast
James re 74
Jackie is a great host and she brings on some of the most interesting guest
Great podcast needs to be longer.!!!
Jackie , I'm binge listening to your podcast from the beginning and I'm really enjoying your enthusiasm!
Practical and Reasonable Travel Tips and Inspiration
I "fell" into backpacking and was never the same since, Jackie hits the main points of those with wanderlust who want to start or are already veterans. She's easy and fun to listen to, driving home the importance of travel and pursuing passion. I find myself agreeing with her ideas based on personal experience and often times saying "why didn't I think of that!" Especially taking on notes for when I hit the road as a nomad again. It's easy to feel "abnormal" in a 9-5 society when everyone thinks you just go on "vacation" all the time. Thanks Jackie for helping provide a network of people who are like minded and inspire more to break the mould.
Love your podcast
I just got back from backpacking a few months ago and I wish I had heard this podcast before I left! So many helpful tips and hints. Thank you for your help, your podcast is great :)
Great way to pass the time, and a great way to be informed. variations throughout, never gets boring, there is an unlimited amount of positive ways to put this but definitely download you will not regret it spending your time listening.
Taking the leap
I have been on the fence for a year or so about whether or not to continue my college education and obtaining my bachelors now that I have completed my associates degree. Listening to the podcast has reinforced my self-confidence enough to the point where I am going to take the leap and travel while I can, and look into careers/jobs utilizing my computer science skills. Thank you
Helpful and down to earth
She has a wealth of info about traveling and ways to do it, where to go, how to save money yet she's down to earth so you can listen to her for hours. Lots of hot tips!
A fantastic resource for any traveler!!
I've been listening to this podcast for probably over a year while dreaming all the while of traveling overseas for the first time. Jackie provides both inspiration for you to make your travel dreams a reality, as well as all of the practical, logistical information you could possibly need. I am now getting ready to leave on a round the world trip, which will be my first time overseas & this podcast has been a major go-to resource for me while preparing for this trip. It has given me courage, inspiration, advice, tips, knowledge, and I am just grateful that it exists, especially as a thrifty person who loves to save money whenever possible, but still dreams of seeing the world. Thank you Jackie - keep up the great work & here's to many more great episodes ahead!
So much inspiration!
I am so incredibly grateful to have found this podcast I've been inspired for a long time to add more travel to my life and every single episode leaves me with spectacular little gems of knowledge and inspiration to make this happen. she's managed to find a way to make up so it's entertaining and educational if you dream of traveling or adding more venture to your life definitely add this to your list of podcasts to listen to!
Love this podcast. I discovered it this weekend, and I'm addicted. I've already listened to nearly half the episodes.
I hate painting but I like this podcast.
Found this podcast a couple weeks ago and have been really getting a lot out it. I am readying my house for sale and have been cleaning and painting and packing and even more painting (I hate painting). Anyway we (me wife and 2 kids) are getting ready to leave for a year or more. This podcast has been a real asset.
This podcast has it all!
I love this podcast. It's fun and very inspiring. Jackie makes you want to get out there explore the world and experience life to the fullest. Her guests offer great insight on different ways to make international travel attainable. Keep up the great work Jackie!

If you need a push to Pursue your traveling dreams
I just heard my first episode of this podcast with Tess who left u.s 7 years ago. I was so impressed and moved by her. And the host Jackie makes the listening to the podcast fun and entertaining.
Best travel podcast on iTunes!
I first heard Jackie's podcast a couple of months ago as I was looking for information as I plan my RTW trip in 2017 and I was instantly drawn into her charm and delivery. After having going back and listening to every single episode from front to back, I can say that her content and information in each episode is a little pot of gold each time. Even episodes that didnt apply to me (ie. traveling with family) gave me tips and suggestions I can use. Since then I have ventured out to other travel podcasts and have discovered that Jackie's structure is topnotch. I love that her podcasts are organized and professional and I particularly enjoy the "themes" that she will do for 4 episodes or so. Plus the fact that she has her show notes page for each episode is the icing on the cake. Thank you Jackie for a thoughtful, well exectued podcast and I look forward to many more.
Inspiration & Practical Tips
Inspiration for all with wanderlust, and practical tips to make it more affordable. I've already learned a ton through the episodes I've listened to so far, and I'm excited for the ones I have left to hear. Thanks for the awesome content!
This podcast satiates my wanderlust until my next trip. I really enjoy hearing about far away places and adding them to my bucket list.
Best Travel Podcast/Fb Group/Snapchat
Jackie puts out the best, most diverse info about last minute travel and long term sustained trips. She puts her passion into making sure it's easy for you to connect with other travelers who can help you on your journey. You have to follow her snapchat it's hilarious
Delightful listen and extremely helpful
This has been my go-to podcast for the last month while I get geared up for a month long trip abroad. Jackie addresses any issue you could think of with humor, insight, and overall great advice. Especially inspiring for solo female travel. Listening is getting me SO excited for my trip while also giving me all the information I need to be prepared. Thanks do much Jackie! You're awesome!
Jackie is amazing! She is so pasionate about traveling and her energy is contagious. I love it!! Started to listening to the podcast at the beggining of june because I started a long commute...and typed "travel" to listen to some music in spotify and surprisely found the BMT podcast. Since then, my commute is not too bad anymore since I get to listen to all the great advices about traveling, the interviews that are so related to all of us, and Jackie has such a great way to compel all the amazing stories in a informative and funny way. I'm all caught up now and I cant wait for next episode...Gracias Jackie!
Great podcast. Super informative. Great guests.
I have learned so much from this podcast. Jackie is very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. I recommend her podcast to anybody I know that's planning to travel.
Now planning my first 30 day trip to Europe!
Listening to this podcast has inspired me to plan my first Euro trip for my husband and I! I love listening to Jackie's stories of her travels and all her helpful advice on traveling on a budget. I just finished reading her book (a must have) and feel more confident in planning a 30 day trip to Europe! I have been to a couple countries, two weeks at a time, such as: Ireland, Italy, Costa Rica and Mexico. But, I have never taken a whole month off to travel around Europe or any other country. My husband and I were thinking of stopping in Iceland on the way to Europe (A recommendation from Jackie). From there, we would then go to Scotland, Spain, and Italy. Thank you so much Jackie for creating your blog and podcast! You are a true inspiration when it comes to pursuing your dreams of travel!
Down to earth!
So do-able. Jackie’s philosophy is one that she lives. I love the episode about ‘how” to find the money to travel. I wish I’d heard that years ago when I was much younger.
Love jackies podcast. It always has interesting topics and love the conversation. Follow her snapchat! You won't regret it if you love travel!
We love Jackie! She has added so much value to us and our story through her podcasts. They have really helped us think through our travels with practical steps to make it more financially feasible. Thanks Jackie! Keep up the amazing work!
Definately one of my favorite podcasts. Very informative, encouraging, and inspiring. I always have a pen and paper handy to jot down info. Jackie is very talented and fun to listen to.
