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.
Today we give you the best sites that we use when booking our travels. If we use it, we’ve linked it and there are some great resources here to help you plan your trip from the moment the idea pops into your head to the moment you return home, exhausted, but thankful for the entire experience.
Today I bring back Robb Hillman and David McMullin to share their experiences in Guatemala with all of us, so that we too can fall in love with this seemingly beautiful country. We talk about some of the best sites to see, including Tikal, active volcanoes, and caves best seen by candlelight.
Knowing the best practices for money abroad can be a challenge. Should you take cash and change it at the airport? What about ATM fees? Today we’re giving you our 14 rules for money while traveling that will help you travel more, and spend less.
Scott Manning from TwelveCountries.com joins us today to talk about his year abroad with his wife and baby. We talk about the places they’ve visited so far, how much it’s cost them, and some great advice for saving money on the road.
Scott Manning and his wife had made the decision to travel around the world, visiting 12 countries in 12 months, when they found out they were pregnant. They went anyway.
Sailing was something that interested Bo, but he’d never done. So of course, he bought a sailboat and made it his goal to sail around the world. I mean really, what else was there to do?
Heather joins me to discuss some things that we’re thankful for this year and suggest some podcasts for any long travel days coming over the weekend!
Robb and David join us again today to share their experiences on their current open-ended trip. From where they’ve been, to where they’re going; how they’ve saved money on accommodations, and some deep thoughts on stepping out of the cave, they’re sure to teach us all a little something about life and travel.
Longtime EpoP readers & listeners share their strategies for saving money for their long term trips around the world! All those excuses to not travel, they had them, and they overcame them to pursue awesome adventures.
What are you going to do if you get sick in a foreign country? Today we discuss our tips (from experience) on what to do when you get sick on the road.
