Summer Destinations Part 1: International

Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast Summer Destinations Part 1: International

With travel opening back up, where do you want to go first (internationally)? Because we loved this topic so much we are splitting this conversation into two episodes and therefore splitting our list in two as well. Today, we will be covering our international destinations that currently (May 2021) have their borders open to vaccinated tourists (& only a couple that we are still waiting on).

If you are craving travel as much as we are, this episode will fill your travel list with some great accessible international destinations.

Today’s podcast is sponsored by Oregon State University ECampus.

5 Ways Travel Will Change Post-Pandemic

Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast 5 Ways Travel Will Change Post-Pandemic

What do you think will be the changes we see in travel in a post-pandemic life? How do you see it affecting the way you travel? We have had quite some time to think about life post-pandemic but now that we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel (thank you vaccine), we feel it is a great time to talk about how travel will have changed going forward. This was the topic we were prepared to discuss during our time on MSNBC with Yasmin Vossoughian but they quickly found out that Heather had caught COVID while we were in Costa Rica and that made for a better story for them. But, since we have this podcast we can finally get to discuss the 5 ways we see travel changing in a post-pandemic world and dive into the fundamental shift in the way people are traveling that we see as a positive. Enjoy!

Top 20 Songs

Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast Top 20 Songs

What are your go-to jams? Who are your favorite artists that you can listen to over and over again? Are you a top hits listener or a whole album listener?

Today, Heather & I will be diving into our top 10 songs (20 between the two of us) and while this is something a little different in terms of topic, we do hope you get a kick out of whether we have ANY that are on both lists. It is another list episode and the same rules apply, we don’t know what is on each other’s lists and, of course, there will be honorable mentions.

This episode is not a technical look at music and there are genres that I know nothing about so take this all as just our personal opinions (& with a grain of salt).

Did any of your top 20 songs make it on our lists as well? What songs did we miss that you think should have made it? Let us know by tagging us in a post on Instagram at @ExtraPackofPeanuts.
