Travel is the ultimate “trial and error” exercise. Thankfully, I’ve had many years and dozens of trips to try and err my way to expert traveler status.
But what if you’ve only got one chance to get to India during the Holi festival? Or maybe you want to make sure your experience teaching English overseas goes off without a hitch? You might just want advice on how to take a big trip without losing your job or alienating your family.
This is where my new travel coaching sessions come in. When you book a one-hour travel coaching session with me, you get years of real-world travel experience at your disposal.
Here are just some of the ways a travel coaching session from Leave Your Daily Hell will help you.
One-Of-a-Kind Travel Experiences
How would you like to cuddle with tigers in Thailand? Scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef? Sail along the Nile river for two days? Spend a day stuffing your face in Rome’s most famous culinary neighborhood?
If you want to do it, chances are I’ve already done it. Thanks to my years of travel, which have taken me to more than 50 countries on all six inhabited continents, I’ll set you up with just about any travel experience you want — think of me as your global concierge.
Living and Working Abroad
Want to live abroad, but don’t want to teach? I’ve got experience in that department, too. I’ll help you choose the right city or country, and procure the documentation necessary to stay there legally.
Likewise, I’ve got the knowledge and resources to hook you up with professional jobs abroad. Whether you want to take your banking career from Wall Street to Hong Kong island, or work in Australia’s booming mining industry, I’m your overseas job connection.
Long-Term Travel and Location Independence
Traveling for months (or years!) at a time isn’t for everyone. But if you think it might be for you, I’ll give you the information and tools you need to test drive it yourself.
Or maybe you want to be on the road indefinitely, i.e. “location independent”? I’ll help you parlay your skills and knowledge into portable sources of income, and give you candid advice about what you can expect after you set out on the road.
Alternative and Gay Travel
Did you know that open displays of homosexuality in some Muslim countries can lead to arrest, deportation or even death? I do, and I’ll make sure you get the 411 on all things gay before you set foot on foreign soil.
Whether you’re looking for the top beaches and nightlife in gay hotspots like Miami, Sydney and Tel Aviv, or want to take a romantic vacation to somewhere remote, I’m your gay travel guru.
Practical Travel Advice and Planning
Travel is fun — once you step off the plane, that is. Research and planning? Not so much, unless you’re me. (Yes, I am something of a glutton for punishment.)
If you’ve got the “fun” part of travel covered, let me take care of the nitty gritty, whether you need advice on visas, train or bus schedules, local customs and laws or even the best time of year to visit a particular place. Don’t wait until you step off the plane to start your holiday!
Teaching English Overseas
When I moved to Shanghai to teach English in 2009, I had one chance to get it right — and I got it right! If you’re thinking of teaching English overseas, but have doubts, questions or simply need a second opinion, I’m your man.
I’ll perform extra research to make sure you’ve chosen the right school or city, help you draft savings and travel plans and even set you up with local friends in cities all over the world.
General Travel Pep Talk and Advice
Got the money, time and thirst for travel, but still not on that plane yet? Let me pep talk you into overcoming your fears and doubts about travel, and clear up any ambiguities or uncertainties you have, be they more practical or esoteric in nature.
