Listen on:


Ty Dalitz (@tydalitz) is an Australian who has spent the last six years traveling the world. And he hasn’t taken a single flight. It started off when he sailed to Asia and planned on making it to London by an overland route. But it has morphed into a six year journey filled with some of the most incredible adventures under the sun.

Here are some things Ty had done:

  • Rode a motorbike the length of Vietnam
  • Crashed a wine convention in China by creating fake business cards
  • Caught the Trans-Siberian railway from Mongolia through Russia to Europe
  • Hitch-hiked around Europe
  • Caught a ride on a sailboat across the Atlantic
  • Sailed through the Panama Canal
  • Crossed the Pacific in a sailboat twice
  • Assisted in an attempt to SWIM ACROSS THE PACIFIC OCEAN
  • Rode alongside the swimmer in a dingy
  • Saw sharks in the great blue ocean
  • Visited the Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch

And that’s just scratching the surface. I could sit and listen to Ty tell stories all day.
