In this podcast episode, we have one of the most interesting people of our generation, Dan Beaumont. He’s an entrepreneur who runs the hostel company Podstel and has traveled across to 50+ countries over 4 years. He’s known for hitchhiking across Europe and the USA (partially through the use Tinder). We discuss:

  • his story
  • quitting alcohol
  • finding mentors
  • the benefits of travel
  • safety of hitchhiking and couch-surfing
  • how to find the right type of friends
  • finding purpose as a young professional
  • his goal to complete the Camino de Santiago
  • why Dan travels for people, not destinations
  • navigating the challenges of COVID-19’s impact on the hospitality industry
  • why some cultural narratives (“get a family immediately, get a job”) aren’t always accurate

This episode is fantastic for young people who feel a bit lost and want to learn about a few ideas about travel, fulfillment, relationships, and life that may help them find life more enriching.
