Have you ever thought about how your personality and values might be different if you’d never travelled? This is something I ponder sometimes – I really, truly think that travelling has completely changed so much about me and how I approach the world! Basically, give me travel any day over any personal development course. The world is the best teacher!
It does seem I’m not alone, as the guests I spoke to for this episode of the podcast all had important things they’d learnt about themselves as a result of travelling. Enjoy!

Travel and Personal Development
Travel can change us in so many positive ways – that’s one of the main reasons I keep doing it! In Episode 182 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast I chat with three guests about some of the many and varied ways that travel has continued to their ongoing learning and personal development.
First up, I chat with Kiki Wong. She started out on an academic path to becoming a doctor but stepped off this track when – you won’t be surprised to know – an amazing offer to travel appeared.
Next, I speak with Nicci O’Mara who learnt a lot about parenting (and about her children) during a family trip to Italy. On Nicci’s birthday, events unfolded which turned out to be a big turning point in personal development for all of them!
Finally, I talk with Nate Taiaroa who has spent year living and travelling in Africa, learning so much from these experiences that he went into business to help others get to have these life-changing personal development experiences too.
