Spent an evening this week driving around with new friend and globetrotter, JP Salva, who is the man behind the travel blog, "Border Junkie." Giving up his job and just going for it, he has visited 131 countries so far, documenting it on Instagram and Snapchat (BorderJunkie). We talk about how he got started and what it is like building a community online by doing something you love.

Special note: Can you name the first country JP visited outside of the US? If so, let us know in the comments section on our Facebook page and one lucky winner will be selected for a prize.
