Couple Accidentally Unravels the Mystery of Around-the-World Travel

Inside a glittering cloud of fortune I came across the Katia and Kyliemac Podcast, which is, quite obviously, a series of podcasts hosted by Katia and Kyliemac, two young expats currently residing in Paris. It was an interview with a couple of long-term RTWers named Reed and Liz Fish, married and blissfully out there exploring their world as we speak.

I was quite taken with what happened on the show, because both Reed and Liz managed to spontaneously, adroitly, and probably accidentally unravel the mystery, if you will, of around-the-world traveling simply by explaining how they did it themselves.


Reed and Liz are at the tail end of their most current spell of extended international travel, so when it comes to experience, these guys really know what they’re talking about. And it comes across. They’re savvy, responsible, and also, incidentally, pretty talented artists. Check out their website if you have a moment. It’s a hoot.

This podcast isn’t just people talking about places, it’s genuine instruction, and well worth the listen. Katia even says herself: “these were really interesting episodes for us because we were able to get into the nitty gritty of how to actually go about organizing a trip like this.” So for insight on how to book (and travel) on a round-the-world ticket from a couple of experienced travelers, I highly recommend listening to these. They’re entertaining too – the Fishes are hilarious.

To listen to the podcasts, click on the icons below. They’re 35 and 45 minutes respectively but well worth the time. Get comfortable and then get informed!
