Description

For episode 20, I had the chance to sit down with Seattle-based osteopath Cathy Lindsay. Her lifelong love of nature and being outdoors eventually led her to explore the world as an adult. After multiple international trips to places like Grand Cayman, Bali, India and Peru, Cathy began shifting her travel focus. She now takes annual service trips – typically helping on environmental or animal research projects. Her service expeditions have included counting butterflies in North Vietnam, studying juvenile turtles in the Bahamas and Costa Rica, and studying wolves and bison in Alberta, Canada. She also recently traveled to Thailand to work in elephant and dog sanctuaries, and ended up providing support to the local community following a devastating flood. Cathy shares amazing stories about her adventures in learning and helping – showing us that travel with purpose is not only important, but deeply rewarding. Along the way she provides inspiration, tips and resources for those interested in doing good while traveling.

Rita Golden Gelman: Travel Lessons from a Nomadic Life
Episode 6: Today I’m interviewing Rita Golden Gelman - an extraordinary and delightful world traveler. Now 80 years old, she spent 30 years of her later life without a permanent residence. Author of the New York Times bestseller: Tales of a Female Nomad: Living at Large in the World, she has endless travel stories and lessons to share. A prolific children's book author who wrote while on the road, Rita was a working nomad well before the current "digital nomad" trend.  She also edited and published a collection of stories from women travelers: Female Nomad and Friends: Tales of Breaking Free and Breaking Bread Around the World. Rita has literally traveled around the world – living in often rural places in Mexico, Indonesia, Africa, Laos, Thailand, Guatemala, Colombia, India, Tanzania and more. Trained in Anthropology at UCLA, Rita mostly lived with families, immersing herself in local culture as much as possible. Join our conversation as we explore the importance of connecting authentically with people wherever you travel, trusting your unfolding experiences, and going with the flow. I absolutely loved Rita's adventurous spirit, her wisdom, and her fascinating stories.  I hope that this episode leaves you as deeply inspired as I am.  Resources and links mentioned in the episode can be viewed at http://jetsetlisette.com/episode6 I appreciate you taking the time to listen to my podcast.
