In this episode, I speak with Laura Dal Farra. Laura is an entrepreneur, writer, blogger, traveller/adventurer and Muay Thai practitioner. Based in Toronto, Canada, Laura runs a site called Milk Blitz Street Bomb which focuses on “where travel and martial arts meet.” Laura was recently featured in the travel section of The Toronto Star.
In 2006, Laura spent six months in Chiang Mai, Thailand studying the art of Muay Thai. She got enamoured with how the art was practiced in the country, particularly the purity of the discipline and the humility of many of the practitioners. She also got a taste for a certain kind of life.
After returning to Canada, Laura decided to make a bold move. She re-designed her life and moved back to Thailand where she ended up training for over three and a half years. She first spent a year in Bangkok and then in Buriram in NE Thailand, near the border with Cambodia. In going back to Thailand, that’s when the adventure really began as Laura immersed herself in the Thai culture. Adventure of course implies challenge, adversity and of course, facing uncertainty. Through her time in Thailand Laura ended up having a number of wonderful experiences that served This inspired her to create Milk Blitz Street Bomb in which she provides advice, stories and resources to those seeking to follow a similar path.
We have a great conversation and spend time discussing:
Laura is very authentic, inspiring and cool. We have a wonderful conversation that perhaps was a bit too short (which only means that I will have to have her back on the show). I hope you enjoy it!
