This guy made us fall in love with travel all over again

Read time: less than a minute

Robin Esrock is a global adventurer, travel writer and TV guy. And he just became one of our favourite travellers ever.

This 20-minute TED Talk manages to sum up all the things we love about travel, but also all of the things we take for granted about it. The man knows his stuff.

He argues that we’re all able to apply the things we learn whilst travelling – tolerance, understanding, adventure, the ability to trust your gut – to our daily lives, and that we’ll all be better off for it. Sounds about right. Robin also talks about some of the insane experiences he’s had whilst travelling,which should be enough to get anyone up off the couch and out into the world.

Robin also drops some other good advice for travellers too. Like:
