ABOUT YOUR HOSTS
Ted Beatie was born with the soul of an adventurer and is happiest when he's off the beaten track. His favorite places include the Sahara desert, 100 feet underwater among the coral reefs of Fiji, Southeast Asia, and Burning Man. While he calls himself a diver, firedancer, aerial acrobat, technologist and cyclist, his true passion is showing people a hidden side of the world, through his photography and writing. He is a contributing editor for Rolf Potts' Vagabonding Blog, and curates Case Studies of long term travelers. His latest adventure is learning how to be a father to a precocious 21-month-old girl, named for a Moroccan desert sunrise.
Ashley Garver made the switch from an under stimulated, disconnected work-a-holic into a joyously free-spirited world-class wanderer. With a full backpack and a sublet apartment, she spent ten introspective months traveling alone throughout Southeast Asia, India, and Europe. She studied yoga, eastern healing modalities, meditation, and — most importantly — herself. Ashley detoxed her body, shaved her head, biked through the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, and volunteered at a yoga retreat in Portugal for a month. During her journey of self-discovery, Ashley realized that, with love and honesty, she is capable of just about anything.
Carrie Williams recently returned to the Bay Area after 3 month career break to Switzerland, Canada, and a road trip covering most states in the Pacific and Mountain time zones. She's a veteran career breaker and veteran road-tripper. Her road trip skills are so good that upon return from her most recent break, she got snapped up by a Bay Area tech start-up to help them plan a corporate grass roots marketing road trip. She's known for taking to anybody and being "the weaver" that brings various social circles together.
