Are you an over packer? Do you think there is no way that you can travel with only a carry on? Do you have no idea what you should be packing in the first place? Today, we are diving into our packing list and even giving you our checklist so that you can pack for anywhere in the world only using your carry-on luggage. We break down every single item we pack (regardless of how long the trip is) in the following categories; women’s, men’s, electronics/necessities, and infant/kids stuff and we are hoping that you will find it useful for your next trip. You can signup to get the full packing list at the brand new Extra Pack Of Peanuts website!
Do you allow fear to dictate your choices? Are you too scared to take the first step? My dear friend, Ruth Soukup, author of Living Well, Spending Less & Do It Scared, creator of the Elite Blogging Academy, & host of the Do It Scared podcast, is joining me today to discuss fear, struggles, and building your dream lifestyle.

After visiting Croatia three times over the last five years, Trav and Heather continue to fall more and more in love with this wonderful country.
In today’s episode, they’ll tell you where you can find the best seafood they’ve ever eaten, how to make sure you are able to get into Plitvice Lakes (they didn’t!), and what beach has both urban exploring and crystal clear waters – plus tons more!
Hotel Accaddemia – Clean and nice hotel in a great location that’s walkable to everything – the pedestrian walkway is right outside your door – with a grocery store downstairs and paid parking (10 euros/night)
Pizzeria Karijola – A local fave, this pizza place is in a neat “hidden” courtyard with big pizzas (for about $8-10) and a second-floor wine bar.
Mali Bar – Located in the same courtyard as Pizzeria Karijola, come here for inventive, unique tapas from a TV famous Croatian chef. It’s not necessarily cheap, but it’s good and fun.
Pingvin – This place is cheap and has some of the best sandwiches in Zagreb. Like the locals say “you haven’t been to Zagreb if you haven’t eaten at Pingvin.” And since it’s open until 4 am, you’ve got plenty of time to go.
Chocolat 041 – A decent gelato place that is definitely the best in Zagreb. The chocolate is especially tasty (based on the name, it better be).
Cogito Coffee Shop – Cute, hipster coffee shop tucked away in a small courtyard in the heart of downtown.
Tolkien House – Cool craft beer spot right on the park with a nice outdoor patio and some funky decorations.
Craft Room – Right near Tolkien House, head here to get more of your craft beer fix.
Gric Tunnels – Originally built in WW2 as a bomb shelter and later used during the Croatian war, these tunnels were opened to the public in 2016 and cool to walk through.
Visit the abandoned Belvedere Hotel, which unlike the ones in Kupari, is within walking distance of Old Town Dubrovnik and where they filmed the battle scene between Prince Oberyn and The Mountain in Game of Thrones season 4.
Drive up to the top of the cable car (or walk if you want to exercise). Look for signs for Bosanka and follow that road up.
Drive down to Kotor, Montenegro for some incredible seaside scenery.
I am super excited to be talking with the always happy Kelsey Henry, from PositivelyDelighted.com, who is a singer/songwriter who just dropped her first album, who introduced me to the term road schooling, and who is a certified Laughter Yoga leader. This episode is filled with positivity, laughter, and epic stories of being roadschooled in an RV!
