Part One: The First Person to Travel to Every Country Without Flying (In a Single Journey) With Thor Pedersen

Is traveling to every country on your bucket list?

Today I’m joined by Thorbjørn Pedersen, the first person to visit every country in the world in a single journey without flying!

In this episode, Thor and I unpack some of the many lessons he learned on this audacious 10-year quest. He shares what kept him going despite the mental stress and traumatic experiences, how this adventure has changed him, and how he’s maintained a long-distance relationship through it all.

Make sure to catch part two of this episode on Thursday!
