Discovering The Hidden Europe With Francis Tapon

Please welcome the amazing Francis Tapon to today’s show! Francis has a travel resume that inspires all of us to get out there and explore, he is the author of many renowned books, is an avid backpacker and slow travel junkie, and someone who has never owned a television, couch, bed, or spaceship (and is most disappointed about the last one). Today we are diving into Eastern Europe, the beautiful benefits of slow travel, & why connecting with locals (& not your phone) is so important to the overall experience of your time wherever you are.
