I was recently a guest on Doreen's podcast Nomadic Diaries and had a great time; check it out!

Join us for an inspiring conversation with globetrotter James Hammond, as Doreen delves into his transformation from a classic backpacker to an advocate for slow travel and cultural immersion covering work visas and digital visas. 

 James is a podcast producer, writer and travel expert.  Doreen, the host,  admits that she was extraordinarily chatty in this episode....sorry James!
In this episode, you'll discover:
👣 James's evolution from his first hedonistic journey to embracing a purpose-driven path as a digital nomad, seeking to challenge misconceptions and truly connect with diverse cultures.
🌍 Insights into navigating the world with work permits, the digital nomad lifestyle, and how pursuing work-visa opportunities in countries like New Zealand, Canada, and Japan can shape your travel experiences.
🤝 The imperative role of cultural mentorship, empathy, and the pursuit of personal growth alongside geographic exploration.
🔑 Three Key Takeaways for Nomads and Aspiring Travelers:
1. Slow and steady wins the race - Embrace slow travel to forge more meaningful connections and immerse yourself fully in each culture.
2. Home is where the heart is - Recognize the importance of a home base and unravelling emotional baggage for a sustainable nomadic lifestyle.
3. Personal growth precedes travel triumphs - Travel is an incredible tool for expansion, but it's essential to address personal issues for transformative experiences.
Don't miss this deep dive into the nomadic lifestyle that transcends the allure of bucket-list ticks and embraces the richness of global citizenship.
Favorite Quote from this episode:

"Travel is not about merely seeing new places, but about challenging misconceptions, connecting deeply with local cultures, and realizing that empathy, understanding, and less fear can transform the way we interact with the world."  The outstanding quote of the day.
