Jared Campion

Listen Now.

The Tokyo Cheapo Podcast is BACK after a sizable hiatus – here with our second episode! This week, we sit down with ‘most illustrious gentleman’ Jared Campion of DreamDrive vans. Jared takes us through 12 years in Japan – from failing as an English teacher to succeeding as a real/fake ‘bling bling’ priest and eventually starting his own #vanlife company. A big fan of the roadtrip, Jared also takes us through some of his favourite travel stories, like sneaking on to a grape farm in Australia and posing as a tractor driver.
