"Thyroid absolutely bother you that you felt like you knew, but you couldn't say anything to him. I. I think I hinted or asked him one time. And he denied it. or Or said, what are you talking? You know one of those things. And I. My best friend in the World Steve Reynolds who Steve in Jim are married and they've been together forever. Phenomenal couple gray couples. He told me says, don't ever ask him that he said he'll come to come to you when he wants to come to you and Steve told me about coming to his mom and how his mom goes. Of course, I knew that you know one of those things. But. Then Ashley when you were going through what you were going through, trying to come out I already knew that Jake was gay he had already come out to me and I actually didn't I didn't bring this up on the radio. At the time that it happened because it actually happened in March, I brought it up on the radio now because of something that just recently happened and I'll explain that to you guys coming up here in just a little bit what it was. And Jake actually when I called him last night said Hey. Do you mind if I bring this up? He says He says I don't mind. Don't make it about me just make it about the situation that just recently happened. And Okay so I won't get onto that. You know too much. But the the way that he came out was actually very. Interesting to me. Chelsea Jack and I were just the three of us going to dinner together. And it was supposed to be Luke with us to we were visiting Jacob in Chicago but Luke had had played off like he wasn't feeling good. So he didn't want to go to dinner. It was loose way of. Knowing that, his brother was going to do this eventually do this. So he wanted to kind of stay away from from the situation which I thought was pretty cool. Awesome so Chelsea had asked Jacob. and. She never would ask them. You know, do you have a boyfriend it all she said, Hey, jake, are you dating anyone? And he said, yes, and he told us. The boy's name. Well, he told her the boy's name. This the other part of the whole thing you know how I'm always on my phone L. Are you? Show Chelsea. Chelsea when that happened was so excited that he finally said this to her. She turned to look over at me as I'm scrolling through instagram liking things on instagram and she looks and she goes Tom? Did you hear what Jacob just said and I go? No. What's that? He goes on Dad I'm dating and he said the boy's name again and I don't want to share his name because it's it's between Jacob Jacobs, private story but he's he's very good. Honestly he's such. Okay. Shawn. Mendez de honestly kind of. Way. So kidding. So I was on my phone at that moment and I don't know if they're not paying attention I don't know of anywhere listeners have ever been on their phone at a major moment or major situation like if you have share with me because of a I'm embarrassed to say that but then I got up and I actually started crying with tears of joy. Hugged him and he's like Alright Dad. All right. But do you know what the best thing is Jacob and I have always been? Loving and affectionate with each other but never overly affectionate since he. came out to US I. Feel like he is so much more affectionate than he has ever been and it's so awesome like we talk a lot and we always have..

"For joining us our guest is Andrew Jakob CEO of raisons solar hello and the client yeah and his great entertainment awards solar on something to me it means money you know money comes your way right right because we're tired of the old ways of warming in heating and air conditioning and that first because you always want to be an entrepreneur I got the idea in college and I was inspired by a lot of things going on the early two thousands around renewable energy they were claiming a lot of large institutions are claiming that renewable energy would be the next great revolution would be bigger than the internet so that's what got me into it first time was plastics in the plastics so job paying job first paying job was selling that really yeah it was I just graduated high school nine zero yeah like door to door after they're actually really good knives they were they were probably some of the best times as much as I told him that he would basically call your network of people and you would take this wonderful life side and try to sell it to them additional on raising the box everything yeah well knives right yes I am being twenty four and it's just me with the people and then thirty minutes little pitch right now you would cut everyone's individual whether new couple other than the nicest customer like butter and they're pretty much everyone who we see on TV when it comes to mate like yeah right just happened to me yes I was on I was your first paying job the worst job ever has I can't really say that I thought of that job that's a good thing you came up with this in college or after college with three times I came up with it after college I during the war years working at UCLA and the particle beam physics laboratory and I was also an option from there at the time doing sort installation right and what what part you just drive by some earlier I think solar power any cosmetic changes right right right yes historically been kind of clunky and and being right well I think that we're on the cusp of kind of a new age a new a new revolution and it happened a hundred years ago when we switch from coal coal based energy and oil based energy right from the early nineteen hundreds and I think we're seeing it again switching from oil based energy to solar base and who your customers so we're manufacturer we would sell would only admit to an installer Michael van Tor or soliciting right now and the residential or commercial right so they come to you we we sell we manufacture in Balkan just one large box here is what isn't paying for the parameters of getting solar heater air conditioning excellent for house yeah Mike your house what would you do it I know why one of the right well we've got the point where the cost has come down enough so that you're paying less for your soul and then you are for green energy right and you're also renewable you know where the energy is coming from right when you when you pay the energy company do you know where Ali may the energy but was so anything you can if you can see if it's on a roof and there's a lot of costs related to infrastructure right like when you have a big power plants somewhere and you get the energy through power lines for soccer in the early hours per mile to build a high voltage power lines so while we distributed so eliminate Bangkok's and so essentially all the infrastructure related right is not part of your costs for energy anymore and can you custom exam to like say you have a home and you want to look like it has solar power but to do that yeah it can be a technology is now being created for that with the increased demand for solar is becoming something of this demand who's your favorite superhero I like the Superman people coming most people say Iron Man right that yes family yeah how do you balance work and life so many hours you work yeah it depends it really depends on the day yeah so how do you balance your life yeah so that's that's a great question and it's something that I'm entering on or something I I really want to bring that up with them as for me it was hard when I have a couple years ago two years ago I just got into like mindful meditation and it really helped with balancing work and life one that one of the biggest tricks that I do is I have all my work stuff on a desktop at the office right that way I don't need to be doing it I have a laptop but you don't see with your work wherever you are right but it's it's one central location where you have to physically go in you can remove yourself from work when you need to estimate idea and mindfulness is the latest thing to not so later a lot of entrepreneurs and doing so how big is this business right now not just for a time some rates on solar but how big is your industry yeah well if you look at the market cap rate is still all in about an order of magnitude smaller than a very mature industry right like if if you look at the media right media is one billion dollars a year market cap Brent same with like my conductor Intel companies like that right solar is in the tens of billions right so it's still pretty small in order and then mainstream but is growing rapidly it is growing the fastest industry right now the couple is stupid questions do you have to be around on all the time well you have to be in the sunlight to get the energy right but I wasn't mean that you need to always have sun where you're using energy you can store it but one of the things that they're doing screen tied so if you have a grid tied solar system that means you get credit for an extra energy make during the day and you can use that that not hundreds somehow works so let's say you need ten kilowatt hours to run your own branch bill this is enough Paul I'm saying that's the energy you use as we use our all you all right so you build a solar system that makes twenty kilowatt hours right so that ten kilowatt hours you need at night you were making during the day and it runs a meter backwards right so that's how the credits work and then using those credits at night and keeps track of what future it's almost kind of new right always the point where it's now cost competitive as well as cost competitive with conventional energy that we just and so you're gonna start seeing larger mainstream companies investing into solar and it's going to be everywhere now if you're a company that has traditional power when you try to switch over to solar is cost prohibitive there's ways around it now there's a if you buy it all right could be right a lot of people don't have that money right but I mean what I'm saying in the long term than say right yeah yeah think long term right nobody wants to pay for five years worth of energy today right right but if you look at the cost of energy the rising costs and everything you will save a lot of money over twenty years fourteen years of three hundred sixteen how many people work for you we have eight employees right now and how do you hire them well it depends like we have a couple business development people but mostly our engineers have a material science or physics based background right and we're not really sales right right right the people that explain following in this will mark are you watching business rockstars and Pat o'brien and Jakob is our guest is from raisons solar I'm thinking that it's easy to get the money any time you put the words solar that's correct but I mean solar Jimmy's right it has you'll be out in terms of by mentally friendly but also low cost energy the news the new a new component costs big factories don't do it well they do they do in China and we have a lot of big ones here and in maybe that is directly was cost prohibitive the council has dropped dramatically over the past seven years only right so now is a time when it's happening because I construct right and so whenever you build infrastructure it'll take ten years to get to see it on a large scale so ten years from now as when that will be happening cost effective though and I'm just trying to help them get their cost effective for companies to invest all that money I'm a senior I don't know his okay now that is if you look at the energy raised arises understand here so if you walk in your solar rates now in the store now customers are you're you're saving you can buy solar around the store yeah right they can pay for the cost of the panels and panels last twenty years what's the future of this main wall or room and we talked for a smaller more compatible with neighborhoods I think the future is just much higher volume of distribution so you'll be seeing in every house right now you see it on one house on the block right is that right right every other blockers so everybody knows and and that is right and then just as a very recent thing happened in the past five years so we're gonna start seeing or constructing new homes with solar in them and actually in California one third of the new homes are built I have to have solar.

one large box here is what is it for the parameters of getting solar heater air conditioning so in order for a house yeah like your house what would you do it I know why but it was one of the right well we've hit the point where the cost has come down enough so that you're paying less for years older than you are for green energy right and you're also renewable you know where the energy is coming from right when you when you pay the energy company do you know where how they made the energy but was so anything you can if you can see is tile roof and there's a lot of costs related to infrastructure right like when you have a big power plants somewhere and you get the energy through power lines for ninety dollars per mile to build a high voltage power lines so while we distributed selling eliminate that **** and so essentially all the infrastructure related right is not part of your cost for energy anymore if you have distributed solar and can you custom make them to like say you have a home and you don't want to look like it has solar power but some do that yeah it can be a technology is now being created for that with the increased demand for solar is becoming something that is demanded who's your favorite superhero I like the Superman people coming most people say Iron Man right that yes ma'am yeah how do you balance work and life so many hours you work yeah it depends it really depends on the day yeah on your life yeah so that's that's a great question and it's something that I'm mentoring entrepreneurs something I I really want to bring that up with them

central location we have to physically go in you can remove yourself from work when you need to that's a good idea and mindfulness is the latest thing to this satellite not so latest a lot of entrepreneurs are doing the right so how big is this business right now not just for a time rate console over how they use your industry well if you look at the market cap rate is still malts about an order of magnitude smaller than a very mature industry right like if if you look at the media right media is one billion dollars a year market cap Brent same with like my conductor like Intel

rates to rise as time goes on air so if you walk in your solar rates now the papers are now some percent you're you're saving you can buy solar around the store yeah right what they can pay for the

yeah it can be a technology is now being created for that with the increased demand for solar is becoming something of this demand who's your favorite I like the Superman people coming most people say Iron Man right that yes ma'am yeah how do you balance of work and life only hours you work yeah it depends it really depends on the day yeah on your life yeah so that's that's a great question and it's something that I'm entering on or something I I really want to bring that up with them because for me it was hard right a couple years ago two years ago I just got into like mindful meditation and it really helped with balancing work and life one that one of the biggest tracks that I do is I have all my work stuff on the desktop at the office right that way I don't need to be doing and I have a laptop that you don't see with your work or if you are right but if it's if one central location where you have to physically go in you can remove yourself from work when you need to that's a good idea and mindfulness related thing to now this satellite not so late but it is a lot of entrepreneurs and doing the right so how big is this business right now not just for a time rate time so around the store industry yeah well if you look at the market cap right it's still Wallace about an order of magnitude smaller than a very mature industry right like if if you look at the yeah right media is a couple hundred billion dollars a year market cap branch same with like semi conductors Intel companies like that right stories in the tens of billions right so it's still pretty spot in order smaller than mainstream but is growing rapidly it is growing the fastest industry now a couple of stupid questions you have to be around on all the time well you have to be in the sunlight to get the energy but that doesn't mean that you need to always have sun where you're using energy you can store it but one of the things that they're doing is green tied so if you have a grid tied solar.

"And help you. Yeah I feel like all the all the Times I've sit chartered. A taxi somewhere left my backpack on the car and the driver hasn't driven off. I feel like these are wonderful travelers to and I ended world of incredible people out there that I've had the great fortune to interact in Stephan. The list is is finished. We've spoken about T.. C. Is not the next question. The next goal or is at the end of travel. What what's the next half of your travel career going to be like it? I have not see. I'm a little bit stock so I I said I met three or four. And there's there's the the multi Arctic I call it the seven Antarctic territories and whether whether or nor Norwegian region really meets the south polar not up in Minnesota been ice fishing south. Paul if it was if it was a thousand dollars yeah at sixty or eighty thousand dollars that that that really doesn't appeal to me so I don't know that I'll finish that list. I'll I'll try to get this. Let's say at US three twenty one so get to all the others and and And then Maybe maybe take a pause on TCC. I mean people that have been at Arctic in the regions around places X.'s. They rave about our our places like South Sandwich. Islands south Georgia the Falklands oversee a lot of the wildlife in that so so that has a lot of interest. There's to me. There's there's many trips I want to take countries that although my my intention every country has been to visit in a way that I feel like I don't have to go back even though it may want to go back there's there's many places That like something like Tejeda stay on where the highway. I've not Not Take that trip and and Very much want want to go back and and I'm I'm building up this like that But actually the the the the main thing I'm doing now is is more more often taking friends on trips and family and when I'm not so pressured on on trying to get to the Sir that I can do things that are that are interesting and that they can be part of that that I can share my experience and so in in September I had won a slot on the Denali road lottery. Which is an annual thing you can enter to win a one one of several days where you can drive and Denali National Park in Alaska rather than having to take the the internal buses and so a friend that I knew had an interest Chris? The he hopped along in October. I was in China and another friend. was interested in experiencing a bit of China with me so he he flew on over and we went to Jiangxi Province in in China that I hadn't been there in fifteen years and it was it was fun to revisit that and so finding Going from a solo travel. I've always preferred solo travel Because I feel like that's the best way to interact with a country in a place that if you're sitting on a train if you're one person local will always come up and interact with you but if you're two or more suddenly you're an era group and their group and it doesn't always always crossover Now I'm discovering the pleasures in a different way of of traveling with family friends with with others in the in doing a a bit more of that. What trip adventure are you looking? Forward to in twenty twenty. I keep I keep having to promise my wife. I'm not really planning anything so I'm trying to be much much better husband Because I've dialed it down a bit so I twenty twenty. Were spending two weeks in Hong Kong. We love Hong Kong's situation. Of course there is difficult. Recall but were Certainly planning life life goes on where we're were certainly planning to do visit the city and the have our tourist dollars Supporting that I've I've formulated a few trips. I almost never plan very far out Work or family things. Come up I'll be taking more. US trips. I've finished my. US fifty states this year as well in a been visiting the presidential libraries as well as the national parks. I'm I'm looking at a pitcairn trip. A friend wants me to go and March that Looks like the dates may not work. So I may. There's a four island pitcairn group one that they did this year in October. That Charles Village and several others were on and spoke highly of that that I might try for Tober the the South Caucasus or Central Asia anywhere in central I WANNA revisit and revisit again revisit again so all of these are are up in the air. I also want to look at more. I think I didn't pay enough attention when I was just trying to get to every country to paying attention to things that were one time time only or or we're going away so one of the trips I loved the most was the saints Selena. Go going to Santillana interest into KUNA. And I I only booked at because it it was going away and this was a good chance to get tristen and in that. Sailing was the first time I've been on any kind of cruise at. I don't don't know that I could ever go on another cruise Other than maybe the Alaska Marine highway. Which I did the the experience the people it was all fantastic and in so these things things that that are that do go away? Events Different things. I want to be more on my radar and jump at those as as they come up happen and not let things slip away and end up having regrets kate while Stephan.

How did you make that jump from a lover of travel to chasing one ninety three? What wasn't in the cops from the beginning from the beginning? I was really scared. Little boy who didn't want to fly was very afraid of flying and my parents in student travel a lot with me outside of Denmark. So it wasn't in my jeans But when I turned eighteen I had an urge urge to travel. I have a lot of comic books and Donald Duck's where they go away interesting places so I wanted to do the same so I started traveling there a few years into railing. Then I kept going new places to three long overland trips of ten months each within the seventy s after completing leading my master's degree And it was on so then off to them I I started signing into some of the travel clubs mid other interesting people who could help me and then I I sit out to do them all but it was not something I did. From the beginning it came along the way that I thought.

"The planning even on the trip itself so I knew if it was any other country it would just be a A little bit anticlimactic. I certainly would have never planned to giant party Too because of the situation there. It's it's not a place I'm GonNa go dance do a Jig This kind of thing. It's it's it's another traveler I know who've review went about the same time. Call that sad tears. Happy Tears so it it it. It felt like an achievement but but needed to be in perspective of what what so many people have have been through and then third. I don't I don't know if other travelers have this way but I always like what. I'm returning earning the rental car. I always get nervous that last mile like pulling into the airport terminal semi. I feel like it's more likely it'd be more ridiculous to get into an accident accident in that last mile even though it's no different than than any other so I just I just kept feeling nervous is Is this going to be the one where something happen. So I was quite nervous in sending different In advance in different trusted people Emergency contact in a different kind of things that I normally don't don't go beyond letting my parents and my wife no so All three of those things jumbled together and then few hours from landing in Beirut time. I'm in Damascus. And families are having ice. Cream stands and the donor Kebab is still open in. They're going about A A summer evening and it does it does feel a surreal in a few days. Later in the garden of the National Museum in Syria several different guides in the family members and reporters different people. That were all going. There is like A. You're just joining part of a family even if sits booking a tour guides Pretty much all the guides. I've I've heard reports of as as well. I mean they. They really go above and beyond to introduced the culture in that. So we're all sitting there and I it really got tears in my eyes just does listening to the the the woman who got who got my visa is one of several roll hundred thousand born Palestinian refugees. That's she's lived. Her whole life in Syria she. She cannot travel anywhere no country will will take her and and she said I said I I travel vicariously for Y'all so that That that put very much in perspective. Yeah I think there. There's always he's a challenge. There should be in the wariness of how difficult in many cases it is the square the circle that some some of those who are chasing ninety three are coming from you know a privileged western European or North American background around where we come from a stable and civil society and were visiting these countries that are literally in civil war or under a crisis of a boa or living having just an awful poverty so hard to sometimes realize are to put everything into perspective or focus. Yeah I went to a few weeks later I went to. I live in Seattle but I went back to Minneapolis in visiting my parents. And Stop by my high school and They have Middle East history. Elective class and talk to them and and I was able to to video. What's happening in that guy to talk to all these kids and it was a great experience and and connection on that? Yeah I mean that I feel like the the one ninety three thing. It's it's an incredibly selfish thing to do in in so many respects I mean it. It's it's such a time. Finance commitment of the trade offs for family potentially for career All of this and so is it is it is as it gets near the end. Does it become more about yourself or or less about yourself and and how does it shape you in what you do do with it after that. And and I suppose that's that's part of why I felt like like the shortcuts. I mean it's just part of it is it felt like the the shortcuts like getting Guinness to say that Oh because US citizens can't go to North Korea right now we'll count the DMZ well actually that's US policy. It's not dorothy. His Not North Korean in policy. And you know you WANNA change vote different people into officer or You know start start advocating. Why why does why is the? US government government now restricting one of our civil liberties that they've never as far as I know I've done before and in so when it it started. It seems like it's it's an entitlement that you should be able to do one ninety three or you should be able to do it on your on your own time zone Or make your own rules and and that that I felt very problematic. Reckon I'm not It's it's it's not specific about any one person. Many of the people that recently completed seem seem very Very very engaging people some are are very young. That's incredible what what they've been able to do. But I felt more and more conflicted about it and didn't want to then Take take any of those. What what I felt like shortcuts or or entitlements even of of having an American passport I I mean you've referenced it a couple of times during our conversation that it really seems like you had a pretty stringent purity test for yourself off that you didn't WanNa do the serious shuffle of just touching your foot over the border going to the Golan Heights and Israel? You didn't WANNA do a a couple hour trip over the border from Oman into Yemen. And you're extremely patient. I mean in essence emulated kind of two and a half appears for something. You could really finished off in probably three months Not not necessarily patient but I forced myself right but I mean I could say it's not like there's any record. I'm eligible for him and I'm not trying to be the you know the the first polish-american Minnesotan oaten to May words ride a unicycle across every country humming Yankee doodle. It That that that was never never part the thing but also it So it it very much was summoned. I I do. I do have a public profile. I do have a blog. I have the facebook group. I do speak Conferences primarily on fleet frequent flyer programs on it. And there's an element of that but it I've I've never thought that when somebody's messages I've been to every country and it's all about my followers but it's really about me and that that's an endpoint point in itself. I don't I don't know that that really benefits the person or it really benefits the the wider world community of travelers. So many I want to to do much more about teaching travelers about you being better blogger. It's hard to be an active traveler and a good blogger hidden in all of that. But but do more to to facilitate to travel to facilitate understanding of the world. All of those pieces where read this is just a starting point. Excellent while congratulations on completing the Quest Stephan you also have a leadership position with the travelers century club won. A brief description would not say as travelers century club is a a social the club of travelers that's founded in the US several decades ago. It so that makes it one of the longest running of the the travelers villers Longest running and still existing travel social clubs. The worldwide membership think is around fourteen hundred people now that have been to the one hundred of the territories on the Travelers Century Club list of three hundred twenty seven territories In the world that includes loads all the UN countries plus Many territories that that are not U. N. Like like many of the lists out there most traveled people nomad mania. There's there's a published criteria of how you get onto the list and then it It's it's if you enjoy if if you enjoy this subject and travel you probably enjoy arguing until till dawn out why something is or is not on the list So the I I joined the. TCC Board Six months ago and primarily my involvement is is on the social aspects. When I lived in New York I started started having Evening meet UPS which the traditional T. C. Model is where where they're chapters they have quarterly weekend luncheons with the speaker presenter in that is fantastic for for one set of of of the audience and other people. They don't have time on weekends or that's not the format format that's their preferred so I started More social events there I moved to Seattle. Set up the chapter here and and integrate social outlet.

"That was Yemen So things of more recent times. It's a bit easier to get to Yemen whether it's the mainland or even Sakata Tra But previously it was at one point extremely challenging and I think you were trying to visit during that more challenging time period. Describe your visit in how you're able to manage it. Yeah so they've even the tragedy of the the. The fighting Indian in Yemen is a sadly ongoing for that that period from two thousand sixteen through this year was Particularly intense is fighting. And I know some very resourceful travelers found ways to do a bit of a day trip from the border from Oman. or or even a few would be able to With different connections get journalistic visas in and and get in the day trip from Oman. I had I had no problem with did. I just didn't want to go to that amount of time and expense to have such a short visit to a country that that by everything I've heard from travelers. I've seen I've read is is a world jammed to to see an NBA explorer so I didn't take a real interest in that and It was only until the early months of this year. That a mainland Yemen became feasible for for some on on a bit more extensive itineraries. I've not yet been to the mainland but I did go to Sokoto Tra in In April that that transits through say you in but I didn't have a proper trip through mainland Yemen where I did spend as a week on Sokoto island which that island has been peaceful throughout the throughout the fighting It's had different forces on on the island but it's a very different culture. They don't own guns. There's no guns on the island. There's there's no dogs because their their livestock is free range and there's no chickens gins Because they said they hate chickens but they love eggs so when I was looking the trip the biggest warning they gave me was. We don't have many eggs right now and then I learned take care about the eggs. It was they were marooned waiting for eggs in the end suffering and tremendous way for several years but late late uh in two thousand eighteen weekly flights from Cairo resumed And then I was able to get a seat in in early April to go and spend a week on this this this incredible island in the beaches are some of the best in the world. That if they were to be developed every Major resort in the world would be desperately clawing to get get space It's a windy place much of the year. But the flora and fauna the dragon's blood trees are the most iconic is is an incredible place Fantastic food so I did my time until I can have a a really good visit and did have that that fantastic week on Sikora in just to provide some context so at one point over the last couple of years I mean there were multiple attempts by individuals who are trying to Five from Salau Allowuah Oman. To CICADA does fight simply Were not feasible which did not take off. which did not make it too so cadre? I think you're referring to now now a flight that is on Cairo air which is going on at the state airline and so they've got what three eight hundred twenty one's now one one new into older so the the prior attempts at charters and I was involved in booking or almost booking several ones by charter flights or ferries the these were ones that that consistently got hung up because the the Saudis were controlling the airspace. And there would be maybe a permit or maybe not or the permit will be issued and then taken away. It was very challenging for Operators seeking to do this and it was Extremely challenging for for perfect on the island. It's a fascinating thing that many of the islanders their families they have sons that are serving serving in the army that is one of the forces that sort of allied with the Saudis and that's fighting in their mainland So it's it's an incredibly credibly complicated thing and and there have been charters going in and out of Ui for families certain medical but but yeah it was really cut off on Mike flight out was a a lady whose from teargas Dan a doctor who has served in Sokoto for many years and She could not go back and visit at her family's see her husband encouraged and for several years and she was finally able to go out and visit him on the flight that I was leaving from excellent. And what about the logistic. So how did you plan the tripper. Who did you plan the trip through? What provider were you working with? There's a number of providers that They all it's a small place that and certainly it was. It was not a mainstream destination but it was a big for eco-tourism Before it was even on New York Times where to go places lists this Before the fighting broke out. So there are. There are several operators out there Sokoto. eco-tours is is the oldest There's there's there's several local ones Lupine you a trekkers Several so I I was with the. UA trekkers Which partnered on the ground with a ASCOTT ECO tours? And they were the first ones that were really aggressive at getting people in and took it and had a great experience Many many visitors it ends up being a somewhat similar program unless unless you have very specific activities of most of the nights are camping out In in very basic conditions around the island and actually I wanted to. I wanted to be in the hotel more nights. I'm not I'm I'm not Not Averse to to rough sleeping conditions. But it's it's a it's an intense climate in and I I liked having a a little bit of a commute for the islanders. That's a huge drive to say it's too far to go back to the capital for the hotel at night. But that's like a forty five minute drive in so they were willing to work work with me on on what I did and I really enjoyed being at its. It's the only hotel so various government officials were there. The environment minister was there meeting with UN the people on Phnom Tourism Development. So I liked being at that. The one expat hotel just just because it is the only hotel and and and seeing the the those type of people so I did it a little bit differently than the typical Five or even every night camping trip that that many of the guests are interested in. Tell me a little bit about the group. You're on a group wooded the other travelers like Earth Day with type people Well the one is a A A friend from travelers century club. That is Chinese national that that's based out of Washington. DC works with the World Bank and she's a fantastic antastic traveler. We had met on Messing Elena a few years before I wanna one was a veterinarian from UAE From Southern Africa originally and then our group was supposed to have Audrey Walsworth who you've interviewed on the program before the first woman to to go to every country in the world and she had been do Yemen but never Sokoto Tra and she was all booked in in. We were excited than Tom. uh-huh she flies out of Kansas City and Atlanta. Her plane goes mechanical for about eight hours and she gets rerouted Atlanta to different places is in Europe GETS INTO CAIRO or we're having them hold the plane. Hold the plane. They did hold the plane almost an hour. And this is a once weekly flight. Totally sold out Cairo airport has multiple terminals. And in this case coming in on connecting the many others there's no way to transit within the terminals So she had to go through terminal three immigration. Get on a taxi. Drive all the way over to Terminal One and she got there. It does minutes minutes after so she missed out for that we were. We were devastated about that. She turned around talk about a frequent flyer program expert. She she got dealt at a flyer back. Refund the miles re booker for a cheaper price. Two weeks later and she was back in Socotra she did did get there a couple of weeks later. God bless her. I'm hoping to travel with her At some point and a future but but even that experience I mean what an incredible bowl role model and and doing it decades before Certainly I started traveling and I believe that was an important visit for her. I think was that had her last. T. C. C.. Travelers Century Club location. That she needed to visit in she had previously completed the TCC as it then was and so she has. She's lifetime status within the club for having completed though as with them. Her personal goal is To them each time every two ears.

"Steffan Krzyzewski come from Minnesota in the US. I've I just recently gotten to one ninety three. UN countries which is why we're talking today. You bring me back for follow up. But I'm happy to be here I don't remember that comment but I'm glad to have you back and curious to hear a little bit of your final part of the journey and I just wanted overview a couple of different different things to remind the listener Remind us again. Why the love of travel was the catalyst what spurred your love for expiration in discovery like many many in my boat there? There's a collecting background. Where you you get interested in collecting different things and I did not travel much coach growing up? My parents not not active travelers so it was my high school junior year trip to China. We had started studying Chinese Back in fifth grade grade and went to China and traveled around and it was just eye-popping exciting thrilling and so as soon as I could I went to college and University of Pennsylvania Wharton School Philadelphia but spent semesters in Shanghai and Hong Kong and then moved to China right after graduating college. And the you've been in Hong Kong. I arranged at ride classes three days a week and just every every Wednesday night I would head the Shenzhen. See what buster overnight train rain was leaving in hop somewhere new and got addicted traveling in China going every province in in the country. And then step-by-step expanding out to the region and the wider world pulled out of curiosity. You didn't come from travel family. What's your family? Think of what you've done what you've accomplished in the travel world world totally supportive. Do they think you're a little crazy. What's going on when you get together for Thanksgiving? Oh I've got one wonderful parents sand and Brother who's a doctor and a scientist who's WHO's very different although we both Studied Chinese at the the same starting and he studied in China in highschool so my parents Prince of been extremely big about education that they work worked to put put us into the best schools that that we could get ourselves into an and get that environment and Mother reading to me every night Even when I developed an interest in books like James Bond or Tarzan in bucks as a as a first or second grader that would have pretty racy stuff she wouldn't our through and and Be Happy to expose me to to new ideas. A Matt so the circumstances weren't for for them to be traveling a huge amount growing up but they're always been very supportive and and As as both my brother and I got older than the I was living in China my parents did start traveling and in quite a quite a lot of times they visited me. TRAVELLED AROUND DOWN SO my father's a adult of million miler now so it's it's certainly not not anti travel in out of curiosity whose commander and his better yours or your brother. I should hope it's me because I still go back several times a year and actively do stuff with China and he hasn't significantly kept up with it since since going into medical school. I mean I know he did say at the time that Learning Anatomy class was pretty easy Z.. For him when when he had been studying Chinese characters for some time but when he was when he was at his best to you. As far beyond me reading classical Chinese the It's it's it's much more different than than say Latin. It was never a spoken language. The written Classical texts are incredibly hard. Pardon any was brilliant that I can. I can get through the first few sentences of the Dow ditching and and that which is which is hard enough but He was he was way beyond me as scholar. Could use to your brother in and Stephan. What was that inflection point? So you explain how you really were taking advantage of semesters abroad in Hong Kong China the region starting to explore like crazy. What was the moment when you decided to chase when ninety three? What was that light bulb moment? It was. It was somewhere around Azerbaijan Georgia Armenia trip that I took from China on one one of the holiday weeks that that China has an at that point I was had been to just about every country in Asia and and was loving it than in seeing the possibility awesome -bility of doing much more in learning learning about frequent flyer programs which was making some of these possible Places like the caucuses were connected to China. Southern routes in Chai from China and Could use my north west and then later when they became Delta Delta Miles on on these is trips so things that I thought were previously unattainable for time or cost reasons were suddenly feasible and and And I never I never had an interest to be a full time traveler even if I had unlimited resources for that I push myself very hard on trips. The I've I've taken several three week trips Only wash twice longer. Once a four week I think in the that was in Central and west Africa and a five week around the Pacific and I was so exhausted after three weeks of pushing myself that that is the the long term travel all thing wouldn't wouldn't fit for me and and professionally isn't isn't where my interest lies and and certainly not as it is where my marriage marriage would be taking me so the I like short intense trips. It but was there a day where you sat around and counted up the country's on the map happen you saw that you're at fifty or a hundred and then you read an article. What was that final? Push where you said okay. I've done this now. I can do that. There was more of a a different back back to that other by John. Looked at within. The cost was to get to Nakhichevan which is a separate part of other by John that on the Traveler Century Club list as a separate territory and it was it now? It's quite easy to visit in affordable all and more flights at that point it was it was looking that expensive and I decided I'm not going to get addicted to a crazy list like that and subsequently I've ended knocked divide and gotten addicted to that list but it was It wasn't it was it was Wasn't necessarily one day except perhaps perhaps when I got got to eat team more. So that was the last country in Asia that I hadn't been to and did say I went to to all this trouble to get east team or deal with Indonesian and flights which wonderful delightful country in many ways except traveling Logistically is Is One where a lot of things. Don't go to plan and and So once I got to East Timor as I'm going for the UN Stephan. You're last on counting countries actually November of twenty sixteen eighteen. And you're at one hundred eighty six countries at that point. But you didn't finish your you analyst until August of Twenty nineteen in for some travelers. That's a lifetime Some travelers as we know have done all one hundred ninety three during that same time period. So you took your time to finish off the last seven countries I want to focus on four of your final five two of them. I found pretty surprising in two. I didn't so your final countries was Italy. How did Italy early of all countries end up being one of your last countries? There were three that I was saving to the end of Italy Greece and Turkey and and Mainly not not so much animus. I'm really WANNA have a big party or something. It wasn't that it's it's I'm history is my favorite subject fascinated with ancient history. And all of those three are are are so special in central to to world history and world world civilizations that I wanted to to save them to really enjoy lavish in terms of time and and Destinations destinations trips to go. So that that was the original thinking and then What will get into why I got stuck on on a couple of others and so then finally I just? I just couldn't wait. These are wonderful places that I'll visit multiple times in my life but That that that roughly was the idea As well as the flip side is after seeing so many ancient Roman ruins in North Africa. That have this kind of thinking. Why should I go to Italy and see the crowds? But you know that's just that's just one of the ten thousand different things that are fantastic by deadly to to go see show as a history buff. You mentioned Italy Turkey Greece. What's a highlight for you? Visiting those countries by all of all of the above. I mean it's it's just incredible. How you You could pretty pick pick any point on the map and see multiple layers of of incredible history I mean what I. I walked off the plane Lina in Milan. I had booked the trip like a week before last minute and I can only get one one ticket to the last temptation Or the Last Supper or the last supper painting and and I had like an hour and fifteen minutes from touchdown in Milan Malpensa to to getting getting getting in the door picked up a rental car drove as far as I could into the city abandoned the car where other people were illegally. Ugly parks hopped on the subway and guide in and saw that and and So Italy I've really I've really just started. I've been a bit in the North's I've I've seen the Vatican again but I haven't properly visited row. I've been around Sicily different territories in. It's it's just pick your pick your time in history Greece more specifically the ancient In the ancient era I mean I just gets it gets incredible to. You're just driving down the road and you see the road sign Its Tab obeys in the ancient Also known as thieves. And now it's just a a scruffy scruffy town but just pull off the road and spend the night there because these names out of history are incredible and and the answer Turkey Turkey. I took a A road trip from von the famous Lake van in the Armenian Indian churches in the East and drove all the way across the country The the more or less southern route through the Kurdish areas than around the Jian coast and So many eras of history from the first Essentially I city of multi-level housing and that goes back back. Thousands of years all the way up to the modern times. I mean it's just I just couldn't i. I had take UNESCO sites off the list because there's only so many you you can see in a day it's It's incredible and Turkey actually. has this fantastic museum pass system where you can get the countrywide one or you can get one. That's for a week league or are some regional ones arrest Boland's and the prices are so low and every mega site in the countries included. It's it's not like many countries where the tour pass includes everything except the one really must see

"For so your best spurs in plus minus and she mentioned both of them so that was an astute phone call Veronica Jakob in twenty three minutes only had four points but an a plus for in the plus minus Lani an a plus for the plus minus also in and the plus Marco Belinelli an a plus three let's see Derek white had a plus three nice game for Derek white he had seventeen points but yeah those are your only pluses in the plus minus spurs fall in overtime to the Cleveland Cavaliers one seventeen to one oh nine back to the phone lines and can can you're on spurs three act on twelve hundred W. away I welcome can hello sellers Hey man they man oh man oh man this is this is a definite heartbreaker only because if you go back and look at last couple games the cavs had won out almost fifty a few nights ago in a wall when not on the road just mad because because the more tropical referrals at the end of regulation all it some point I mean I know I've said this the other night when I spoke to you guys after the other after the last game really it showed us man you know we had five days off something has got to get with the off on the opposite side of the ball yes I know we're still working our way if they're going to clamp down white they sure have and I'm not I want to be little anybody speak out of anybody but the fixation of get these young guys minutes I understand the experience hang time no I'm speechless because you're searching that we should be you know we gotta go to Mexico City Saturday and their coach said it best when he when he was being interviewed after the game by bill showing it they came out flat what I understand because you know I'm at work and listen in the game but they came out flat the first half and this has been a constant wardrobe battled back and forth just getting in so to the game's towards the second half of the okay has got to sort of got a resume with these guys at some point that you know we know we know we need to do combinations are working right now so LA has been playing kind of kind of soft as of late put up numbers you know a lot of money is going great here and there but overall the if you look online is killing us inconsistency wanted to kill us nationals yourself turnovers here and there labor ballgame two out of three like you said bill is it sorry Chris isn't bad for the older times what we should be putting these positions we have the ball and work up an opportunity yourself a chance to win the ballgame but thirteen seconds left in that we allow Kevin love to come back I think for him all of the trial you will get Cleveland I watched ones were showing earlier today and you could tell he was pretty peeved about the last couple games they have because you know what I'll take it can suck and I think he took that to heart I think just like that part Jordan had a great game tonight on the opposite side but you have but we got it we gotta getting here but otherwise we're gonna be sickness dance spot we were last year and we're gonna have to battle just to get into the playoff picture disc so I'm gonna hold you there to get a lot of other calls and you make a lot of very very valid points and I I appreciate the phone call spurs lose in overtime to the Cleveland Cavaliers one seventeen to one oh nine back to the phone lines we go and Rudy Rudy thank you for waiting your on spurs react on twelve hundred W. away I welcome Rudy thank you thank you very much John one of the factors that I've seen over the last several games and I'm sure you all have the numbers but we are consistently failing on the offensive rebound side and the other teams are consistently gaining on that side we are a lot of three pointers job tonight were made when are they actually got their offense to rebound several times within the same sequence and were able to have somebody quite open because of the offensive so they were really hustling for some reason we don't seem to have that same hostile and we weren't outside today you know today I would say we were you know very similar in terms of I and so again why what are we doing or what do we need to do because there is a factor that I think is very obvious getting to inspect all right now a little bit there but you you were diagnosed with something that was her a big problem tonight offense of rebounds the spurs had a total of two offense of rebounds tonight's the Rudy you nail that they had thirty four defensive rebounds but they were totally out rebounded overall offensive and defensive rebounds they were out rebounded by the Cavaliers fifty to thirty six figure out rebounded double digits by fourteen rebounds but yeah we had to offense of rebounds Cavaliers at eleven on offensive rebounds that is often a hustle factor so yeah offense of rebounds were a big issue tonight for the San Antonio Spurs you diagnose that well Rudy spurs lose to the Cleveland Cavaliers one seventeen to one oh nine in overtime back to the phone lines we go and Chris Chris you're on spurs react on twelve hundred W. O. A. R. go ahead Chris guys I know I know it I love it creates beautiful show I watch and let's get every day the guys at this point two and three is that we cannot cannot must not lose these guys are superstars got to close the game out throws in the ballpark I'm sorry to say and that last it can download you would not pass the ball the only way I'll just got the ball was because of the trash pick up and then Forbes nonexistent and white traveling often we need to keep Murray in the game we need to keep a lot of water in the game let him cut their teeth by mistake I'm sorry we need to practice if you guys have done.
