Spread the Love: Positive World Travel – Anthony & Elise

In this series, Rachel and I like to take a few minutes to spread the love for those people, services and products that we have encountered in our lives and in our travels, who and which we have come to admire, appreciate and support. Rest assured, we receive no direct compensation for the endorsements we make in this series. Our intentions are simple: to help like-minded people and organizations make positive and supportive connections.  

What is Positive World Travel?

Positive World Travel is a website, blog and community created by two fun-loving and inspiring Australians, Anthony Milotic and Elise Reeks.

Anthony, a former Chef, and Elise, a former Teacher, worked hard in their respective careers for years, saving their money to buy a house.  Just when they were finally ready, they passed on the house and chose to invest that money in themselves, instead.  They quit their jobs, sold their belongings and set out to travel the world.  Out of interest in sharing their experiences, knowledge and diverse talents with the world along the way, Positive World Travel was born.

As Anthony and Elise explain on the site, they created Positive World Travel with a mission:  “…to inspire others to take the leap to travel the world, to excite people as to the endless possibilities that this world lays before them, and finally to believe that they really can get out there and discover life outside their own.”

“Inspire. Excite. Believe.” is their community’s mantra.  Anthony and Elise promote it through their words, photography and videos, and they demonstrate it through the actions they take in their own, everyday lives.

Why I Love Positive World Travel:

I first found Positive World Travel while I was still sitting in my cubicle back in San Diego, more than two years ago.  I remember reading about Anthony and Elise’s experiences and watching the video on their About Page and thinking, “Wow, they just quit everything to travel the world – wouldn’t that be nice.”

Not too long after that, I came to the very simple realization: “Oh wait, I can too.”

In this way, I credit Anthony and Elise with being two of the first people to give me the inspiration for what I am doing now.

Their talents in photography and videography are well-recognized (not just by me) and have warranted more prominent featuring in their own, new project called Milotic Media (coming soon), which I am excited about.

Additionally, they are releasing a new series of guidebooks, and have started with one called “Two Wheels and Rice Fields – The Ultimate Guide to Motorbiking Vietnam,” which I am currently enjoying reading and planning on putting to use in the coming months.

    Wow Jim, It feels so amazing that you have shared our story with your community. To have you writing about us and how we have inspired you is so exciting and exactly what we hope to achieve through our site. Yes, we do the site for ourselves, but we are always thinking of our community and we are so happy you have found us and enjoyed our travels enough to start your own!

    Thanks for the feature and happy travels!

      Elise, we're very happy to share your story and give other, like-minded people the chance to get know and follow you and Anthony. Keep on traveling and we'll be following 🙂 Hoping our physical paths will cross sometime so we'll have the opportunity to meet you two in person!

    oh, wow, this is exactly what I have been looking for: I will get in touch with Elise & Anthony right away. Thank you so much for your work and for sharing!

    I just created my blogpage http://littlemissitchyfeet.com a month and a half ago after coming back from a 1,5 year-travel-expedition. I am very much interested in sustainability and traveling with a mission like the one featured here or like these people http://littlemissitchyfeet.com/2012/02/15/from-n-… . That´s why I am going to start a blog-series featuring / interviewing travelers like this.
    And I hope Anthony&Elise are on board.

    I would also highly appreciate any idea/recommendation of other travelers with a mission you know,
    thank you so much and continue the work!
