Description

In episode 17 I speak with Glory Ali, founder of Muslim Travel Rocks, a blog that encourages and motivates Muslims to explore the world, seeking to combat Islamophobia through travel. It also provides useful information on Halal and Muslim friendly destinations. Glory has been featured in Huffington Post, Halal Incorp and Khadija Magazine, and has been invited to speak at numerous national conferences, including the Women in Travel Summit and TravelCon. During our conversation she shares her personal experiences as a Muslim traveler, discusses the importance of raising children to be global citizens, and explains why she feels that America is still a welcoming place for Muslims. She also shares tips and advice for women wanting to travel more.

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.
