Today we talk about experiences that had us shivering in our boots…
because it was winter!
Nick joins me again today so that we can layout our top 10 (or if you use Nick as an example, 13) European cities to visit during winter.
Not only do several airlines run off-peak promotions for award bookings to Europe during the winter (most notably, American Airlines) but you can save a ton on accommodation as well because it’s the low season!
We chat about everything from London to Istanbul with tons of locations in between, with a ton of funny stories to go with each. Where do you suggest we travel to in Europe during the winter? What did we miss? Let us know so we can plan next year’s trip!

The best winter Europe destinations for me are Portugal, Spain and Italy. Good weather and nice food.
@Sumru Ramsey – Yeah, none of those places are a bad place to spend the winter. In fact, we’ve been to all 3 of those places in the winter and definitely agree that the weather is nice there (relative to the rest of Europe) and of course, the food!
I am currently spending 8 weeks traveling through Europe (mostly Eastern) in the winter, so this is a perfect podcast for me. Thanks!
@Kaycee- Awesome! Where are you headed? I’d love to hear which places you’ve loved on that side of the continent during winter. Let us know!
I listened to Gaddafi’s point guard – part 1, while I was making dinner and it was very compelling. I listened to this podcast with you and Nick while I was cleaning up and making my lunch for today (you know I spend most of my evenings in the kitchen) and while the content was very interesting and informative what I loved most was just hearing you and Nick. Miss you both. Love, Trav’s mom
@Trav’s mom- Make sure you listen to Part 2 of Alex’s interview. It’s just as intense and interesting. And glad Nick and I could be a part of your night from afar. Can’t wait to see you in Thailand. So much incredible stuff to do, not sure how we are going to fit it in 3 weeks. Love you!
I plan on listening to Part 2 today. Somebody was asking me how you got Alex on your podcast.
i am going to berlin and Switzerland in februray and march . is there any cool recommendation to do there . maybe a must go a not to miss place
