Hey! My name is Nick Kembel. I have an honors degree in anthropology and 10 years of teaching experience.

I quit teaching when I decided to turn my obsession with the world into a full-time business. My main travel website is Spiritual Travels, and it focuses heavily on the two countries where I’ve lived: Taiwan and Canada, plus my travels in nearly 60 other countries around the world. I’ve given lectures at several universities, high schools, and government tourism events.

I started this website as a fun little side project. It is inspired by my two kids, who can’t get enough “fun facts” about the world. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I do writing it! My goal is to eventually cover country, major city, and all the top attractions in the world.

You can see my credentials on my LinkedIn profile and a full list of my books and other publications.
