Matt and Nikki Javit had stress free lives in Indianapolis. They loved hanging out with their friends, spending quality time with their family, and making new connections in their vast network. They were both considered very successful in their careers, and they loved their bosses and co-workers. But the desire to travel full time was always on their minds, and they knew the window would be soon closing to turn a dream into reality. So on February 21, 2017, with their single backpack each, they flew to Santiago, Chile with the one-way ticket that would start their journey around the world. Checking off bucket list locations like Machu Picchu, Galapagos Islands, The Sistine Chapel, and The Taj Mahal, they are creating new exciting lists every week on where they want to explore next. Follow along on PassportJoy.com Travel Talk to hear their latest crazy stories, tips to have amazing trips on a budget, hot locations you may not have heard of, and ways to volunteer on the road. Whether you are looking to travel long-term like they are or you want to find a cheaper way to have epic weekend getaways, this is the podcast that delivers value by keeping it REAL while taking you along for a memorable ride.
