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.
Joining us today is someone who loves cliff diving with Italian grandmas and a good pork chop, who all of you have met before even if you don’t know it (since she’s in charge of the EPOP social media) and who just launched her very own podcast with the best podcast tagline we’ve ever heard Mack from The Sweaty Traveler podcast.
Joining me today is someone who is a proud Cincy resident and Wisconsin native, who has been to over 40 countries, who describes herself as an “older Millennial” and who has absolutely awesome pictures of 6 Ethiopian boys on stilts, Jen Seiser from TheJourneyNotes.com and JenSeiserPhotography.com
Joining me today is someone who spent many years covering the NBA, attended Justin Beiber’s 21st birthday party, and who left it all behind in 2016 to travel the world and has been on a whirlwind tour since then, Jon Santiago freelance writer and publisher of original content at Santiagos.space.
Joining me today is someone who is the co-founder and CEO of Trip Scout, who traveled back and forth to Europe by himself as a 9-year-old, who was called “the modern-day Marco Polo” by Forbes and who now, like myself, is traveling with two little ones in two Konrad Waliszewski from Trip Scout.
Joining me today is someone who moved to Italy on the advice of a stranger on the internet, who can see France from her bedroom window (even though she lives in England), and who got Italian citizenship in 2 months, Sarah Mikutel from PostcardAcademy.co and the Postcard Academy Podcast.
Today’s Throwdown Showdown we are focusing on two places that we both truly adore, Croatia &. Slovenia. Which do you want to visit more the pearl of the Adriatic or the nation of caves?
Today’s Throwdown Showdown we are focusing on two of the greenest landscaped countries with views to die for, Ireland vs. Scotland. Does your heart lie with the Emerald Isle or the land of whiskey and bagpipes?
You asked we listened and we will have a lot more ‘Throwdown Showdown’ shows coming to you! Today the great debate is Austin vs. Nashville.
Joining me today is someone who met her husband at a music festival (although the bag of wine means she doesn’t remember it that well), who has lived in China, Indonesia, and Mexico, and who is always one of my favorite people to talk to, Rachel Story from GratefulGypsies.com.
