Download Episode!
João is a quintuple threat. He is a professor, an entrepreneur, a father of seven, a romantic, and a believer in all of the world’s religions.  

The professor shares his amazing stories of traveling the world.  As a romantic he has married his wife eight times in different ceremonies around the world, including their first in Addis Ababa with a honeymoon in South Sudan.  He spent time in a Yemeni jail cell that conveniently included wifi allowing for some Facebook updates. He avoided being strip searched in the Congo with a well placed bribe.  And the professor traveled the Karakoram Highway, one of the world’s  highest paved roads in the world.  The trip ended in Pakistan where he raised thousands of Euros to help Pakistanis who were affected by the severe floods.  The professor’s travels began in earnest when he began competing with his cousin.  The professor has been to all 193 UN countries, 292 places on the TCC list, and is the 35th most traveled on The Best Traveled.  He recently returned from the British Indian Ocean Territory via ship from the Seychelles. This military island is one of the most difficult places to travel to in the world.
