You are currently viewing Video: Why We’re Traveling Right Now

I am now in Asia for an epic backpacking trip to a fascinating region (where infection rates are a lot lower, like my 3 previous trips), and Flytrippers’ other cofounder Kevin is now… a full-time nomad once again. So I wanted to share this video where I highlight just the 2 main reasons why we’re traveling during the pandemic since it’s very important. And Kevin talks about his own trip too.

Both reasons don’t even have anything to do with us being fully vaccinated (unlike ≈ 96.5% of Canadians), but that doesn’t mean traveling right now is for everyone. Of course, it’s not.

(We’ve repeated it so many times, so I’ll just say again that you certainly should not travel if you’re not going to take precautions—our free pandemic travel checklist will help you consider the many risks involved thoroughly.)

But before we share more content about our trips themselves, let’s talk about serious stuff first.


My trip to Asia

Here is my video:

You can follow me on Instagram to see daily stories all trip long. I’ll have a lot more content to inspire you and allow you to travel virtually along with me (another one of the many good reasons for us to be traveling).
