Gary Arndt runs one of the most popular travelogue-style blogs in the world. He’s one of Twitter’s top 50 people and generally pretty well known around most of the internet’s coolest social networks. This week we talk to him about something more important than geekery: he’s on the last leg of a mammoth two-year round-the-world trip.

During this interview we discuss his travels in the Pacific, Australasia, Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Europe. Oh, and his home country — the United States. He talks about diving with jellyfish in Palau and visiting war zones in Cambodia; how to find accommodation and travel successfully without a guidebook.

And now for something completely different

Honor Dargan, who we told us about travel in Tokyo, Japan, is a regular guest on the Japan Podshow (iTunes) which is a fun show about travel and expat life in Japan. She’s also starting a live twitter chat along with Shane Sakata. They will be available to answer all your Japan questions at Japan Discovered.

Hostelbookers are celebrating their fifth birthday with five-cent hostel beds and a great giveaway.

WorldNomads is launching a massive Australia-wide “vantastic” road trip which we’ll be talking about next week.

  • Great podcast - I really enjoyed listening to the interview. It brought back so many memories of my trip ATW. I loved Gary's take on the 'fear of travel' that so many people have. Hopefully he can continue to inspire more people to get out and see this globe with their own eyes and realize that it's not as scarey as they are led to believe!
