Not Useful

I gave their Czech Republic episode a try and was disappointed by the lack of curiosity in the traveler who went there. I want to listen to someone who is befriending locals and getting the most out of their experience, not describing it like their a child being asked how their day at school went. Also how do you get that far through life and never heard who Frank Kafka is? Or writing off a whole economic system because it happens to be Communistic?Someone pay me to travel and I’ll do a much better job than these dorks!

For the mindful traveler

Of all the travel podcasts out there, this is probably my favorite...I appreciate their honesty and perspectives on places - as well as digging deep into the personal and spiritual aspects of travel. I enjoy how they tap into their feelings and emotions during various stages of their journeys, instead of just listing off things they saw and did. Also a good variety of interesting guests. The one negative is that there are often a lot of moments of ‘dead air’ , especially in the earlier episodes. However, they have improved on this quite a bit as the podcast has evolved. Keep up the solid work!!!

Down to earth couple with real stories to share

Discovering them on Instagram when they liked a post of mine, I was curious to see if they really talked about travel in a productive way, our space is inundated with “digital nomads” traveling the world with no substance. Amanda and Ryan immediately come across as very genuine in their interactions with each other and their guests in the episodes with true points to consider when traveling, not just a sales pitch for a “exclusive program” like the travel space is dealing with currently. They welcomed me generously into their Facebook community which is super active and, like the podcast, valuable in its input.

The World Wanderers podcast is amazing for anyone out there who loves listening to travel stories, honest conversations with other travelers, and aspiring digital nomads.

Disappointed

I was searching for a podcast about Taiwan so I could have my husband (white) listen and get a different perspective from mine and where I could also possibly learn as I didn’t grow up in my home country. I had to stop the podcast at about 19 minutes into it because I don’t feel like you guys are true travelers in search of an adventure - it feels more like you are doing to for the money and/or to say you did it. Your comment that Taipei/Taiwan should be power washed so that it can be more aesthetically pleasing might be true but that comment most likely rubbed a lot of people off the wrong way. You aren’t genuinely trying to be open and accepting of other cultures. A lot of countries are equally NOT aesthetically pleasing (have you seen downtown Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco - all of which are, if not more “dirty” than Taiwan will ever be). It also seems like you are not willing to try food from these different cultures where you would probably find yourself pleasantly surprised - even if the scents seem to be overpowering/pungent. True travel bloggers are open to trying experiences and food that they’ve never had.. even if it looks and smells intimidating. Your audience will respect you so much more if you give these things a chance and THEN say it’s not for you. I’ve only come across travel bloggers that inspire others to visit the countries they mention but yours seem to downright bash the country. I’m not saying these things because I love my country so much (I’m neutral) but you guys are not doing a good job as “world travelers” - it’s fine if you are doing this privately for just the two of you but if you are going to have a blog/podcast/social media, it is almost irresponsible/zero value to put out this kind of commentary. I’m glad my husband is open minded and loves Taiwanese food (amongst many other Asian dishes) - some of which are now his favorite things to eat. That is because he gave it a chance. Sorry to leave such a critical review but I hope people aren’t basing their travels off your podcast. I hope you guys have grown from your travels and are seeing the world from different lenses than the ones in 2017.

Hmm...

Oooookay well...The idea for the podcast is good but the content should be taken with a grain of salt. As a frequent traveler with my own experience, I'm of course bound to disagree with what the hosts might think. At the same time, the complaints that seep into the dialogue are too self-serving and leave no mindful observation about a culture in which they are simply guests. The hosts are white and unfortunately, that says a lot about their perspective and commentary. If they stick to European or Western travel they'd probably enjoy their journey a lot more. I listened to the Hong Kong episode and there were many red flags.I was mystified that they said going to Tian Tan Buddha wasn't worth it because the touristy ski lift wasn't operating when they went. Lines are a part of life, friends. Not to mention that you don't have to be Buddhist yourself to appreciate the intention put into the establishment of such a site. I was surprised too when they said they didn't want to eat "Asian" food and even craved Western food the whole time they were there, and Amanda said she was gluten-free even as if to explain why she didn't want to try "Asian" food. Wow. I just don't find it relatable to my experiences or interests. I love trying local food anywhere I go. When else would I?The hosts admit their past travel experiences were centered around "nightlife." That means drinking and partying. I think that says a lot about their background.I would say travel is 40% observation and 60% understanding. Visiting countries alone doesn't teach you about the world if you aren't practicing understanding. Even though I give it two stars I think the content can improve if the hosts challenge themselves more.

Inconsiderate and Ill-informed.

Who the heck goes somewhere new and then complains about not trying any of the local food? ou went to another country and ate at western chains and Starbucks the whole time? You describe the locals as "ugly" and "weird"...what even is this show?

Enjoyable and helpful

We stumbled upon the world wanderers when planning a trip to Southeast Asia. Their itineraries are useful to plan excursions. They are also just super friendly people. They are from Calgary Canada and helped us plan our trip to Banff National Park with restaurants, hikes, and other recommendations. Even better, we all met up for dinner!I think earlier episodes do show some naïveté and may appeal to younger travelers, while recent episodes show maturity and ponder more serious questions. Though I am not a digital nomad, information on that subject is interesting as well.

Great travel pod

I only began listening to podcasts in 2018. This is one of the better travel podcasts that I subscribe to. I may not be in the same age group as the hosts, and I may never become a digital nomad, but I love hearing their stories, interviews, and suggestions.

Czech solo travel

First time listening to this podcast. Don’t know how else to describe this except 2 really dumb people travel around the world and attempt to describe their experiences with nifty quotes like “World War 2 happened so Hitler - he’s evil, and other evil people with mustaches... and Russia was also there” “We should make it into a comic book! Pow!”The stupidest podcast I’ve ever listened to, brought to you by 2 very dumb people. Wow. Maybe I should do a comic book about them.

Basic tourists

I listened to only one episode, about Hong Kong, and I was getting angry that these people think their perspective is worthy of a podcast. Twice they fail to get out because they just don’t feel like it that day, and at the end of the trip they express regret for not trying any of the local food (????). They go to Starbucks multiple times, upscale western restaurants, and complain about lines for the bus. At least now I know what I don’t want to do in Hong Kong.

Inconsiderate

It is so hard to listen to these two complain about the places they visit. They need to learn some respect and appreciation for the people’s land that they are visiting. Locals do not owe you anything. Hearing about them complain about the cab drivers in Bali made me want to vomit. Do they not realize this is how the locals feed their family? While many privileged idiots come through using all their resources and want it for the cheapest price possible.

Catalyst for making huge shifts to nomadness

This show has been a staple for visualizing a travel lifestyle, planning a structure for leaping, taking actions to bring it to life, and creating location independent business opportunities to help sustain. The interviews and stories are mega bonuses to show all us “weird travelers” that we aren’t the only ones with a passion for culture, experience, and world growth. Thanks Ryan and Amanda🚀

Wanderlust indeed!

I love listening to this podcast to gain insight on new places and listen to places I have been to before. I have had the pleasure to travel with these two back on The Contiki tour on the Greek island hop and hope to keep hearing more fun and exciting places to come. You two inspire me to keep on traveling!
