Creating Insatiable Wanderlust Since 2013
Every Tuesday Trav and Heather fill your heart with wanderlust and your head with knowledge.
Sometimes we’ll interview amazing travelers, like the guy who went around France on a little red scooter or the guy who spent 5 years going to every country in Africa (and climbing the tallest peak in each). Sometimes we’ll give you practical advice, like our 47 best gifts for travelers or 21 ways to survive a long haul flight. Sometimes we’ll drop some lists on ya (we love lists!) like our top 10 ice cream in the world or our top 25 breweries. And sometimes we’ll tell you all the best things to do at a specific destination, like the best seafood in Croatia or where to eat pizza in Rome.
But we’ll always have fun, always get (probably too) excited, and always say the word boutique wrong.
Our time in Costa Rica this last winter is the catalyst for today’s conversation all about the pros and cons of slow travel.
Jason Robinson is here today to talk about his new book The Beginner Traveler’s Guide To Going Nomad, the importance of facing fear, & why it is never too late to live the life you have always dreamed about.
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.
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.
Our destination diary on Tamarindo, Costa Rica has arrived and it is jam-packed with great places, ideas, eats, etc. Since we spent such a long time here we are giving you all the insights that we learned during this time. Enjoy!
We have another list episode but this is the first time we have dove into the friendliest countries we have been to.
You may be asking yourself “where the heck has EPOP been for the last few weeks?” well…Heather caught COVID.
If you don’t follow us on Instagram then SURPRISE we are in Costa Rica and have been for over a month and today we are talking about how we came to the decision to come down here, the preconceived notions we had about the experience during COVID, and what it is like now that we are here and have been for a few weeks. We also may drop some hints on what our plan is moving forward.
Each year there are always a handful of days that stand out. While 2020 definitely did everything in its power to limit those, they still prevailed in spades.
Today Heather and I are going to go through our top 8 meals of the year (each) for a total of 16 awesome places that you should definitely check out if you’re going to be in the neighborhood!
