For episode 25, I talk with Nubia Younge, entrepreneur, mother and founder of the Chronicles Abroad podcast. Born and raised in Boston, MA, Nubia was bit by the travel bug in 2011 when she set out on a 14 day European vacation. She spent the next six years traveling to 35 countries, while being a single mom, working full time and going to school part-time.

In early 2017 she decided to donate all of her belongings and pack a suitcase to go see the world…and now lives in Chiang Mai, Thailand. During our conversation, Nubia shares the ups and downs of her travel filled life, how she launched herself into living abroad (and why it’s bringing her so much joy), and offers tips and resources along the way.

  • How Nubia got bit with the international travel bug in her late 20s

I also answer two listener questions: 1) Is there a particular card/program that seems better/easier to use miles than the others? 2) Are there any hacks for getting the most out of your miles such as timing of ticket purchase?
