BMT 64: First Time Traveler Safety Tips & Tricks

This is the first part of a two-part episode featuring first-time solo traveler Anjie Mikesell. Though she has traveled with groups before, she is going solo to conquer the number one thing on her bucket list: traveling to Italy.

She brought all of her questions to the table to talk about everything first-time traveler and everything Italy, and we recorded for over an hour! In this first part, we tackle the big safety questions about how to handle bad situations, how to prevent bad situations, and other general travel tips.

In part two we discuss Italy itinerary specifics, transportation, and many more general travel tips. These two episodes are a must-listen for first-time travelers!

Meet Anjie

Anjie Mikesell grew up in Livingston, Montana.  When she was ready to spread her wings and fly, she moved… 25 miles away from that same small town. While she only moved 20 minutes away to Bozeman, she found herself in a place where she had everything that she loved right at her fingertips. She had her family close, a great career, and beautiful mountains full of wide-open spaces and trails to explore for days.

However, there was one thing that was missing from her life, and no matter what she did, she could not resist that tug at her heart and the deep need to travel. Anjie is finally pursuing her dream to travel to Italy. She will be heading out on her adventure in April. This trip has been on the top of her bucket list for a number of years and she is so incredibly excited to have the opportunity to pursue her dream.
