Interview with Travel Blogger, Lauren Juliff

I was lucky enough to score an interview this past week with Lauren Juliff, founder of Never Ending Footsteps. She is a huge inspiration to all those who want to travel and face their fears. I was originally inclined to ask her for an interview because her story is so eye opening and uplifting. Lauren is originally from London, England and in 2011, she left her life in London for the life of a nomad. She conquered her fears and anxieties by purchasing a one way ticket to Dubrovnik, Croatia. Within the past two and a half years, Lauren has visited 45 countries. She is very experienced and has very useful advice for anyone who is about to go on a trip. She does not hold back in her blog and documents all the experiences she has had while traveling (good and bad).

After speaking with her, I had a giddy and hopeful feeling inside my stomach because she gave me hope that I, too, could one day travel the world. Here is part 1 of the interview that I had with her where she describes how she conquered her fears and what you should do before taking a long trip.
