  1. Hi There,

    My name is Natra Zeryihun and I’m the co-founder of a travel media brand called 30xTHIRTY which encourages young people to explore 30 countries by 30. Although the goal is steep, the idea is to promote long-term travel by setting the bar high from an earlier age. I started traveling at 19 and have since seen 27 countries (currently 28 y.o.). I didn’t come from a wealthy background, but my first exposure to travel convinced me that I had to make seeing the world a regular part of my life. I’d love to chat with you on your podcast and share some of my experiences and tips with your audience.

    Travel On!
    Natra | 30xTHIRTY
