Description

#84: Travel writer and author, Rolf Potts joins Chris to discuss time wealth, why that's such a vital topic in life and what anyone can take from the concept to travel more richly. They also talk about how to adapt to the changes in travel technology and still have amazing adventures, why Rolf once traveled for six weeks without luggage and what you can learn from that experiment, how leaving your phone behind or getting lost might create richer experiences, and why he thinks that as you get older, you can still have richer and fulfilling travels.

Rolf Potts (@rolfpotts) is an esteemed travel writer, teacher, and author. He’s reported from more than 60 countries across six continents for publications like National Geographic Traveler, the New York Times Magazine, Sports Illustrated, National Public Radio, and the Travel Channel. His most recent book is The Vagabond's Way: 366 Meditations on Wanderlust, Discovery, and the Art of Travel
