Slapped in Nicaragua with Travel Journalist Laura Blake

Travel journalist Laura Watilo Blake of Far Flung Travels talks with Joe about her career behind the camera, living in Peru and how getting slapped in Nicaragua got her published with Frommer’s. If you want to ignore my nonsense, skip ahead to Laura around the seven minute mark.

    You lost me because there was all this other stuff for five minutes, rambling about you and sound when I want to,hear what Laura has to,say. Friendly (really) advice as get right to it. That’s what I learned in journalism. Maybe blogs and podcasts are different. However I clicked off. Remember you have an audience. If you were on radio I would have clicked of too.

      Podcasts are different. First episode, so have to explain what we’re doing here. Intros will be much shorter in the future. Want to hear the guest immediately? Scroll ahead. Skip through the stuff you don’t care about like you would in almost any other medium. That’s the beauty of technology these days. She starts around 7 minutes. Had a lot of great things to say. Shame you missed it.

    I really enjoyed this podcast! It is super inspiring for travel addicts (like myself). Laura has so many great stories. I really want to go to Lima now! Thanks for bringing some excitement to my boring Friday afternoon.

    Quite enjoyable and informative! Laura will always hold such a special place in my life as she graciously fan my travel fire from arm chair to exotic adventure by letting me tag along through Instanbul. Good luck with the podcasts!

      Thanks for tuning in! Had a great time chatting with Laura. Hope you’ll keep tuning in! Definitely aiming to have Laura back sooner rather than later. Only scratched the surface of her adventures!
