“A real adventure is never just roses… it’s a genuinely challenging experience.” That’s what JP Schulze (aka the_candourist on YouTube) believes, and he should know—he’s flown around the world with over 2 million people watching live, he’s biked across the United States solo, and he grew up flying in Africa. In this wide-ranging episode, he explains what he learned from his around-the-world adventure, why he’s doing it again in an experimental airplane, and what it’s really like to make YouTube videos. He also shares why being a pilot can make you a more self-aware person, his favorite place to fly, and what he thinks about the future of general aviation.
