Shownotes for Dr Mary Travelbest : Kenya

In this episode: FAQ is about the struggle between travel and that most of the people in the world are restricted from travel. Destination: Kenya, my mistake is surfboards hurt and my travel tips are to stay away from dangerous situations.
FAQ:Do any of you, like I do, struggle a bit about traveling and seeing that most people in the world cannot do so?
Most people will never be able to travel like you and I. That’s because of the freedoms that we have in the US. These are things that we often take for granted, and so my goal is to point out this inequality and try to educate those of us who are able to make the sacrifice to travel, and to bring significant change and understanding to those who are not able to make this experience. It is largely due to economics and lifestyles that the modern travel ecosystem exists today. However, this could change in the future. Should you struggle or accept this fact? That’s all up to you, I want to encourage…

Dayton, Ohio

Independent Travel Shownotes Dayton, Ohio


In this episode: Volunteer travel is the FAQ, the destination is Dayton, Ohio, and the mistake is booking airfare too late. The travel tip is to watch out for street food.
FAQ: How can I volunteer in my travel? I’ve heard of voluntourism and I want to know more about that.
First, that’s great to think about as you determine your plans for independent travel and the first places to visit are volunteermatch.com and govountoriing.com to see what opportunities are out there. You may find a mission in Vietnam, Cambodia or Haiti. Or you may find work in San Francisco or New Orleans. If you want to go somewhere not too far from home, but stillhave a foreign experience, why not visit Mexico? There are programs with GlobeAware,Roadmonkey and I-to-I Volunteering. You could also volunteer locally. Two that I know about personally are Habitat for Humanity and Door of Faith Orphanage. Keep your eyes open for opportunities and let me know if you select one an…

Independent Travel Show Notes: Olympic Peninsula, Washington

Independent Travel Show Notes: Olympic Peninsula, Washington
Welcome to Dr. Mary Travelbest’s Independent Travel Guide. This is for women who travel, who want to travel, and especially for those who want to travel independently.
In this episode: FAQ is on House swapping. The destination is Olympic Peninsula, Washington. My mistake is falling asleep on the train and missing my stop and the Travel advice is using your mobile phone when on the road.
FAQ: What is house swapping? When does that make sense to do? This is where you exchange your home for another in the place you want to go. Full disclosure: I have not done this yet myself. Here are three clubs you can join to learn more and start swapping: HomeExchange.comHomelink.com and ILoveSwap.com Travel writer, Pauline Frommer says that "all have good customer service and lots and lots of members.” That last part is important, because it’s all about the numbers. The newer clubs that are opening aren’t charging fees because they’re tr…

Independent Travel Show Notes: Bangkok, Thailand

Independent Travel Show Notes: Bangkok, Thailand
In this episode: FAQ is my favorite place to visit? Today, the destination is Bangkok, Thailand, and the mistake is booking the absolute cheapest room possible, and the tip is to get both motivation and perspiration in the right amounts as you travel.
FAQ: What is your favorite place to visit? People ask me that all the time, because they want to hear some great stories. Which of my hundreds of best places to go should you visit? That depends on YOU, of course. I love Australia and New Zealand, Banff, Canada, and Yosemite, California, for different reasons. The South Pacific region, especially in Australia and the real people there Down Under make me feel like I belong. Jasper and Banff National Parks in Canada were on my bucket list. Yosemite was where I got engaged on Half Dome. All great memories and I’ll share more about these destinations in the future. So those are my votes for today.
