Two months ago, I was asked to do an online travel course with Creative Live. Creative Live is an organization that runs free online classes on everything from photography to video production to marketing to (now) travel. It was a big, big honor to be asked.
So next week, on January 29th and 30th, from 9 to 4pm PST, I’ll be teaching everyone the secrets of travel…and it’s all free. This is going to be a live version of my blog and books with added stories, content, websites, and tips, plus special guests on safety, working overseas, career breaks, technology, and more.
The class is called “Stress-Free Budget Travel”. All you need to do is sign up and tune in online each day to watch. Like I said, it’s free to watch.
The two days are broken down into eight modules that take you from planning your trip to what to do when you arrive at your destination. The focus is on saving money, finding work overseas, and just being inspired about your trip instead of overwhelmed with the planning. The modules are:
Module 1 – Travel Anywhere on a Budget
Module 2 – Optimize Your Finances
Module 3 – Staying Safe and Finding Companions
Module 4 – Essential Travel Gear and Technology
Module 5 – How to Save Money on Flights and Accommodation
Module 6 – Saving Money in Any Destination
Module 7 – Finding Work and Living Overseas
Module 8 – How to Plan Your Dream Trip
Moreover, you’ll get two free bonuses when you enroll:
- 11 common mistakes to avoid (PDF)
- 27 rules for travel (PDF)
If you miss the class, you’ll be able to purchase it later for $79 USD with the above bonuses plus:
- A copy of the slides from the presentation
- How to Build a Travel Blog ebook
- Step-by-step planning checklist (PDF)
Here’s an introduction video Creative Live made:
So sign up (it‘s free). You’ll also be able to submit questions throughout the course, so if you have any burning travel questions, ask me! I’ll answer them all!
And, afterwards, if you’re in San Francisco, we‘re doing a big, big meet-up on Thursday, Jan 30th when the course is over. You can find all the information on the Facebook event page.

How to Pack for Your Trip
Let me know what you think of the videos and suggestions on topics you’d like to see. In the future, I’ll try to put the videos on the blog too, but the best way to see each week’s new video is to subscribe to the channel on YouTube. I won’t always put the video here, and if you want more travel videos, subscribing to the channel ensures you won’t miss any!
