TWIPPER OF THE WEEK

Twipper of the Week: Laura Berg from Travelful Life.

Current city: Toronto, ON

Age: 41

Total countries visited: 15

What makes you interesting: I think the one thing that makes me interesting is how I’ve managed to morph my career path into one of travel. I absolutely love what I do, and I love that it allows me to travel and share my experiences with others. I am also a doer and I love to try new things. I’ve gone shark diving in the Bahamas, cliff jumping in Australia, mountain climbing in Austria, sky diving in Canada, Caving in Cuba and more! I love experiencing adrenaline pumping fun!

What brands do you love: It’s hard to pick just one. I’ve worked with many great brands. I loved working with Cathay Pacific because I got to fly business class to Australia. I have two children so having that alone time in such a luxurious setting was a treat. They had lay flat beds in your own little pod. I got to watch movies (that I picked) and drink Champaign. It was glorious!

What’s your TravanalityI’m definitely a MAVERICK!

What’s your favorite passport stamp: Probably from Cuba. I love that I was able to visit this beautiful country the way it is now. Things will change greatly for Cuba in the next coming years.

What’s one thing you have no problem breaking the bank for when traveling: Anything adventure. When it comes to things, like scuba diving, sky diving, cliff jumping, zip lining, etc., I’m willing to spend money on things that will stay with me forever.

What motivates you to travel: I never want to miss out on living life. When I am old and on my deathbed I want to look back on my life with no regrets. My life is filled with travel, which means it’s filled with cool experiences and memories. I am the happiest and most settled when I am traveling.

What do you enjoy doing the most during your travels: When I am visiting a place I always try to find what is unique about that place and do it. When I visited the Bahamas I saw that you could scuba dive with sharks in the open ocean. I had only been scuba diving a handful of times but this was something I really wanted to do because when would I have the chance to dive with sharks again? I like to seize opportunities when they are in front of me. So I’d say anything that will be adventurous is what I look forward to most when I’m traveling.

If your personality was a city or country, which one would it be: I’d say my personality would be Australia. In Australia you have an amazing amount of variety. From the ocean to the Outback there are so many cool things to see and experience. It’s rugged and outdoorsy and filled with adventure – just like me!

Next travel destination: We’re heading to Vegas soon and then off to the Mayan Riviera

TWIPPERS OF THE WEEK

Twippers of the Week: Charli and Ben from Wanderlusters.

TOW

Current city: Charlestown, Nevis, West Indies.

Age: 28 and 34.

Total countries visited: 18

What makes you interesting: We have been travelling the world and house sitting for the last four and a half years. During this time, we have lived rent-free in 10 different countries.

What is the best part about having a travel partner: Having your best friend along for the ride means there’s always someone by your side with whom to enjoy the journey.

What is your favorite travel memory: Learning to scuba dive in Costa Rica. We spent three months in training and have enabled us to dive in locations all over the world.

Where and when were you the most travel shocked: When we checked in for our flight to Australia and were told that we needed a visa. New regulations had just been put in place and we looked like travel newbies because we had just assumed we didn’t need a visa and would be welcomed with open arms.

What do you put in your carry-on baggage: Headphones, laptops, camera, scuba regulators, diving watches, sleep mask, toothbrush, and lots of snacks.

Where did you go for your first travel experience: We rented an SUV in Las Vegas and spent three months road tripping across the west coast of the USA.

Next travel destination: For the first time in our lives we actually haven’t decided yet! Normally we plan three or four months in advance but at the moment we are just flying by the seat of our pants.

TWIPPERS OF THE WEEK

Twippers of the Week: John and Sarah from Lovers & Explorers.

John

Current city: Idaho Falls, Idaho

Age: John is 28 and Sarah is 26.

What makes you interesting: We got married two years ago and decided that it would be the start of our adventure together. We aren’t in a position to quit our jobs and don’t want to at this point in our lives. We find ways to travel while staying employed and love to include our amateur marriage advice while we recount our adventures.

Total countries visited: 21 but many, many more to come!

Best travel advice: Be prepared! Doing research ahead of time makes for a much more relaxing experience. We also recommend communicating and splitting up travel tasks with your partner. Each person has something unique to offer. Bonus: have each person plan a surprise. This offers a whole new experience you may not have chosen on your own.

What do you enjoy doing the most during your travels: Exploring brand new places, eating new food, experiencing the culture in the most authentic way possible, and getting to the highest point available. John loves trying to learn the language (or just attempting it) and Sarah likes riding horses in new countries.

What item will you never leave home without: Our Kindles! We love taking advantage of trains and airplanes to relax, and it makes it a lot easier if you don’t have a bag full of books. John always brings his noise-cancelling headphones because you just never know when those come in handy. Sarah always brings flip-flops. After a day of walking/hiking, it’s so nice to take off your shoes and let your feet breathe. They also come in handy when in sketchy showers.

If you were given a free trip tomorrow, where would you go: Ireland! John bought Sarah a piece of land there for Christmas and they’re desperate to go discover it. Plus, Sarah has a half sister there that she’s never met in person.

Most magical place on earth: Iceland. No words do it justice. We were constantly pulling over our rental car to take in a new landscape; waterfalls, mountains, icebergs, hot springs and trolls!

Next travel destination: In the US we will be visiting Southern California in September, Las Vegas in October, Denver in November and Austin in December. Internationally we will be traveling to Cozumel in December for some scuba diving and relaxation. We’re also planning a Southeast Asia trip for next year.
