Get ready for some worldy wisdom from a veteran globe trotter! Erick Prince is a multi-passionate self-made photographer, photojournalist, blogger, YouTuber, and entrepreneur. He is also known as the Minority Nomad and is currently living and thriving in Bangkok, Thailand.

In Part 1 of this two-part conversation, Erick explains why he chose to settle in Bangkok after traveling 95 countries. He also highlights his experience traveling the world as a black man and former US military serviceman and shares golden nuggets of wisdom he’s learned along his digital nomad journey.
