You conduct LandLopers was named by a travel website. Can you tell us a bit about it? What can it stand out of other internet travel articles?

I started the website in 2010 because I understood that other men and women aren’t as obsessive about travel as I am and I wanted to share my own experiences. It was aimed towards people who rather wanted to make off the absolute most from their limited time and didn’t have months to invest traveling. It is still one of the aims of the website and, strangely enough, it’s still a rarity at the travel blogosphere.

This season, you started a weekly travel podcast called Explore the World with Matt Long. Please tell us a bit about it and what made you want to start your podcast.

Sure, well I had an extra creative outlet and a way to reach more people and the podcast has been perfect for it. It is re-energized me and given me the chance to split the travel experience in a different manner. It is a good deal of fun and the weekly guests so much have been a collection that I think share some information.

You created LandLopers and Explore the World with Matt Long without Specialized know-how.

What advice would you give?

And I still don’t have any tech expertise. BUT, see as much as I could and when it came time to start the site and podcast I just sat down. Each of the information is available, you only must be prepared to learn and try new items.
