222: Konrad Waliszewski | How to Pre-Frame Travel Differently to Expand Your Identity

Jan 13, 2020 | Interviews, Podcast

Konrad Waliszewski is the creator of an app called TripScout, one of the best curated travel apps in the world. He made the decision one year to get on a plane during a Chicago blizzard and leave, work remotely, and find out if anyone would notice he was gone– they didn’t. That led into a ton of new, interesting travels across the world. He’s also doing all of this travel with two children. This is for anyone who wants to learn how to use travel to expand your life instead of escape it.
