“When was I young, and I hadn’t seen any of the world, the entire world was on my bucket list.”
This week’s guest is Bailey Richert. She is a Business Coach for beginning and budding Infopreneurs who’s traveled to 24 countries so far.
Her passion for exploring other cultures led to her doing a semester in London and a Semester at Sea during college.
“I was blown away visiting the Taj Mahal just because you see pictures of it, but you don’t realize what absolute perfection it is in architecture until you actually see it for yourself.”
In this episode, we talk about those travels, the multiple travel e-books she’s written, how to deal with culture shock, her secret flight tool that allowed her to recently get a $60 ticket to Martinique, how to make sure the government knows your travel plans so they can provide assistance in the event of an emergency in the country you’re visiting, and how to make the most of your trips.
“There is this really weird stigma in travel that the more you know, the less exciting it’ll be […] and I completely and 100% disagree with that.”
She also provides some great information regarding travel health insurance; including the little-known, but MAJOR, difference between medical assistance and medical coverage programs.
“Just make sure you do your research because, I’ll tell you, a lot of those websites out there are really misleading and you think you’re actually getting medical coverage and you’re not.”
