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.

16 Best Places to Live for 3 Years

16 Best Places to Live for 3 Years

You are really digging our “countdown” style podcasts lately so we are giving you another one but this time we are diving into the 16 best places to live for at least 3 years. We aren’t talking about vacations or short-haul stays but living day to day life like a local, embracing the culture fully, & truly settling into the places we discuss in today’s podcast. This one is a little more high stakes because Trav has a love of buying real estate and so at any point one of these places could become a reality so I (Heather) had to think long and hard about the possible future commitment this episode could be making for me. We each picked 7-8 places (hello, honorable mentions) where we could live for 3 years and you’ll have to listen to see if we had any places make both lists. Can anyone say moving location possibilities?!

Top 10 Favorite States

Top 10 Favorite States

Today is all about Heather & I’s top 5 favorite states we have been to and that means it is time for some good-hearted disagreements and maybe a mention or two of a few states that we still want to visit. This is another episode idea straight from our “Ask Us Anything” call-out on Instagram but we knew this would definitely need its own full episode. Of course, this wouldn’t be a “Top List” without some honorable mentions so who do you think had the most of those?

Only One Country…For The Rest Of Our Lives

Only One Country…For The Rest Of Our Lives

Today we are answering one of our listener’s questions that we received through our Instagram and we thought it was so good that it deserved its own podcast episode. We all know how much Travis loves his lists and he agonized over it up until this recording (TBH it was during the recording as well) while Heather was able to put her’s together in less than 5 minutes but that is not to say that there wasn’t a ton of pros and cons to navigate. The question is (drumroll please…) if you could only go back to one country for the rest of your life, where would you choose?
