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.
Every year, for the past seven years, we’ve scoured the globe to find the most unique, most useful, and best gifts for travelers on the planet (tough life, I know). So if you’re struggling with what to get the traveler in your life, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered again this year. From less than $5 to over $1,000, and with gifts ranging from backpacks to books and from cashmere to coffee, there’s something here for everyone.
Joining me today is someone who solo bicycled from Canada all the way down to Patagonia, Argentina, Xavier Himma from FollowTheHumOfTheEarth.com and Hum of The Earth on YouTube.
Joining me today is someone whose freelance work has been featured in AFAR, Travel and Leisures and Rolling Stone, who has been to 51 countries on 6 continents and whose book “Good With Money: A guide to prioritizing spending, maximizing savings and traveling more” shows how she has been able to travel nonstop for 10 years on an average income of $30,000, Anna Mazurek from TravelLikeAnna.com.
This is the last episode of our updated Philly Destination Diary (cue sad music) but we are ending it with the best of all…Activites! Yep, we are giving you the must-see sites for adults, kids and everyone in between in this gorgeous city of ours. We hope you have enjoyed the new format for this destination diary and that we have inspired you to come visit the city of brotherly love real soon.
By now you are well-versed in the neighborhoods you need to stay in, the best places to eat and the best places to start your day (aka breakfast & coffee) but today is all about getting your drink on. Yes, we are diving into the best places in Philly to drink with a focus on beer and cocktails plus we even sorted most of them by neighborhoods to make it easier for you to find them. If you weren’t wanting a cold beer before this episode you may by the end!
Do you love Philadelphia or has it been on your to-go list for way too long? In this series, we will be breaking down everything that is Philly from neighborhoods to eating & drinking to things to do in 5 mini-episodes. You can binge them all in one sitting or listen to the first three today and the last 2 next Tuesday but either way you will be getting some serious jonesing for a trip to Philadephia (cue the Fresh Prince theme song). Yep, now you have that in your head!
It’s time to dive into one of the most delicious aspects of Philly and that is the best places to eat. We will break them down by food type (hello cheesesteaks) and by location so that you can eat your way through Philly easily. Loosen that belt, get comfy, and start planning your epic foodie trip!
We now know which neighborhoods to check out, a ton of places to eat but we are needing something to kick off our day in Philly and this episode fits the bill with the best breakfast/brunch & coffee places in town. Get noshing on some amazing bagels, donuts (with fried chicken), breakfast sandwiches, and french toast and get it all down with the best coffee in Philly.
Joining me today is someone who got a bachelor’s degree in those very complementary subjects of neuroscience and Korean language, who was once a hula hooping protege, and who loves a well-timed pun more than most, Spencer Jentzsch from HackersParadise.org.
We have done the best fall destinations a couple of times in the past so this year we are changing it up and sticking only to US destinations. Plus we are choosing from places we have been and places that we have always wanted to go to during this season so this was an extra fun podcast to record.
