About the Show
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.
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!
Today Heather and I go through our top 5 desserts (10 total + 2 honorable mention (& 1 dishonorable mention) from 2020, from hometown to widely available to cities around the world if it’s delicious, it’s on the list!
We’ve decided to bring all drinks into one episode due to the restrictions on travel we had this year because of COVID. Join us today as we bring you our tops spots for coffee, wine, and anything that wets your whistle.
In this episode, we go into the Superlatives of our 2020 travel year. Best of, worst of, the best value, and a host of other things.
Obviously, this year travel has been a lot different but we are still going to cover the nerdy statistics of 2020 in the traveling we have been able to do. We’ll figure out about how many miles we traveled, how many different places we slept in, and how many states we visited plus much, much more!
To say that we didn’t get to any of the places we had on our 2020 Travel Wishlist would be an understatement but that is what makes our 2021 list that much more special. We have a vaccine being rolled out so we are crossing our fingers to be able to get out and travel this coming year. Heather and I are going through our top 5/6 destinations (and some honorable mentions), including a couple of surprising destinations from us both.
We are trying something different today as we have crowdsourced from you our EPOP community, over on Instagram, all of your favorite Christmas movies. We had you list your top 5 by rank and each number had a point amount which ended up giving us the top 10…yes, there was math, and yes, we did use a calculator because we are all business here ????.
It is time for another throwdown showdown (requested by the EPOP community) and we are combining it with the holiday season to decide which is better a cold location Christmas or a warm location Christmas. Do you want to get away from the cold and sometimes dreary weather or celebrate all that the holidays are in a traditional snowy weather place?
