The Nostalgic Vagabond

Join me, Allan Hill (the Nostalgic Vagabond) for weekly one-hour~ish travel talks with unique and interesting travellers / adventurers who Zoom-in from all around the world. In conversation, we share compelling personal stories of trial, triumph and sometimes tribulation from journeys, exploring this world and its cultures, languages and landscapes. None of us claim to be experts, we aren't necessarily pros, we are regular people like you. But we decided to say, “YES!” Decided to step outside our comfort zone and have a go at creating our own journey, going our own way. You also don't have to be an expert or professional, all you need is to say, “Yes!” Commit. And go on your own journey – your own way. You can be a traveller too! Hey - Maybe travel could help you discover, your best you. And you can also follow me, @thenostalgicv


episode 8: Consider Before You Depart - Your Life Can Be Your Art (part 2)

The Nostalgic Vagabond and Ulises Santamaria met at breakfast in a quirky little hostel in Budapest in October 2019. They formed an immediate connection while meandering among the historic city sights, enjoying pleasant conversation about travel, life, people and art.

Allan was keen to touch base with Ulises at his home in Mexico, Zooming across the Atlantic during the uncertain days of the coronavirus pandemic. In conversation, they reflect on their brief stay in Hungary and ponder what effects past travel have had on their lives and how present and future travel may influence their lives and their art forms.

Their discussions went deep on photography as an art form, particularly travel photography.

The conversation was so engrossing that it went overtime and is split across two episodes... This is part deux--
