They Thought Your Passport Was Fake? W/ Jessica Kapusta

They Thought Your Passport Was Fake? W/ Jessica Kapusta

March 26, 2021

On this week's episode, we have none other than Jessica Kapusta. Our very first repeat guest!

 

I wanted to have Jessica back on the podcast to have a very important conversation. I wanted to discuss the experience of traveling as a person of color.

 

I, as a white woman, can say I travel with a certain level of privilege I honestly wasn't even aware of. It's not Jessica's job to educate us on what it's like to travel as a black woman but we both know how important it is to have these conversations. In the episode about sharing your experience so others know they aren't alone and showcasing how travel can be different for everyone.

 

I am by no means perfect and this is not the end of conversations like these, but the beginning. It's important for me to keep educating myself on these topics and grow as a person and it's my hope that our conversation today can do that for all of you. 

 

I'll let the episode speak for itself and have Jessica take it from here! 

 

Follow Jessica on Instagram @jessica_cabbage

and be sure to reach out to either of us to continue the conversation!

You Didn’t Tell Your Girlfriend You Were Going to the Dominican Republic? W/ Giulio Gallarotti

March 15, 2021

On this week's episode of The Sweaty Traveler Podcast, we have none other than comedian, actor, podcast host, and sweaty traveler, GIULIO GALLAROTTI!

 

Giulio understands "sweaty travel" and gives us his best stories including forgetting to tell his girlfriend about his trip to the Dominican Republic, getting stuck in Russian "travel jail" (my words not his), hiking hungover in South Africa, and many many more. 

 

In this episode we literally talk about EVERYTHING travel, we chat about...

  • The difference between vacation, urban travel, and adventure travel
  • Russian Visas
  • Solo traveler personality types (wildcards, shy guys, the chatty Kathy)
  • Giulio's experience living in Jordan and how he ended up there
  • What counts as visiting a country (HINT: airports don't count)
  • His road trip throughout the US 
  • Where to next???

Are you ready? Let's Get Sweaty!

 

This was such a fun episode and I hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording. Be sure to check out Giulio's podcast(s) Pack Light and Oops and follow him on Instagram @notjulio

Today we're back for a very special episode where The Sweaty Traveler Family takes you through the top 10 things to do in the Florida Keys!

I don't even have words for this episode... Momica is back and steals the spotlight once again. If you didn't listen to the first family episode listen here first. 

Back in December, we took a very sweaty girls' trip down to the FL Keys I took my microphone and the rest is history. Is the audio great? No. Did we record it on the side of the highway? 100% yes. 

The trip started with troubles in airport security and ended with a fight over where we wanted to get dinner. You'll have to listen for in-between! 

Basically, this episode is me trying to explain our trip and my mom interrupting. If you hate organization and reason this episode might be the one for you! 

 

Are ya ready? Let's Get Sweaty!

February 3, 2021

The Sweaty Traveler is back for another episode with one of your favorite guests CHLOE EMMONS! AKA the owner of Potion Matcha Bar, my PCH travel companion, and truest friend. 

We were only gone for 36 hours but it wouldn't be a trip without some sweaty moments.  We saw a grown man shitting, almost got in a fistfight at Goodwill, and ate tacos out of a convenience store.

The real reason we drove to Cincinnati so Chloe could try my favorite Pretzel and when we arrived... THEY WERE OUT! Talk about a bummer...

We chat about our favorite places, activities, food, beer, coffee, and a real-time segment where I try passionfruit for the first time. 

Did we get our pretzel? Why did we see a grown man on the toilet? What could possibly entice a fight at a Goodwill? You'll have to listen to find out! We promise you won't regret it (for the most part). 

Are ya ready? Let's Get Sweaty!

Let's put our sweaty hands together for this week's sweaty traveler Holly Schneider!!

 

Holly is a ray of sunshine in my life and I feel so lucky to be able to work with her every single day. I knew I needed to have her on the podcast, it was just a matter of time until we sat down and dug into her sweaty stories. 

 

Holly has an incredible world view and is a traveler who always keeps an open mind and is ready for any experience. In this episode, we talk about seasonal travel work, Holly's time in Isreal, and how to respect other cultures when visiting a new country.

 

She has some of the best sweaty stories I've heard including her asthma attack in the middle east.

Let's put our hands together for this week's Sweaty Traveler Wen Muenyi!!!

 

I love to record every episode but this one really made me laugh. Wen is an incredible human being with an awesome story. Someone who truly lives their life to the fullest and isn't afraid to try new things. 

 

Wen moved to the US when he was 9 years old and since then he has been on the move. Traveling around the world, starting a clothing company, and writing a book, this guy just doesn't quit. 

 

In this episode, we talk about living in the United States as an immigrant, using travel as a growth experience, moving to another country after COVID, and... BRAS. 

 

I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. Wen is a one of a kind guy and I am so grateful for his time on the podcast.
