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.
In this episode, we cover the nerdy statistics of 2019. We’ll figure out about how many miles we traveled, how many different places we slept in, and how many new countries we visited plus much, much more!
We’ll be running a 7 part series (!!!) that covers our superlatives, the stats, best meals, best coffee/wine, best beer, best desserts, and best experiences in our year in review.In this episode, we go into the Superlatives of our 2019 travel year. Best of, worst of, the best value, and a host of other things.
Every year we like to make a list of our dream destinations for the upcoming year. Sometimes we get around to a couple of them, sometimes we don’t and they live on to the following year’s list, but either way, it’s a great way to start off!
Today I have the amazing Chase Boehringer from The Bucketlist LIfestyle on the show and he has had the honor to be on the Price Is Right, he has spontaneously walked into an airport and bought a ticket, and has currently crossed off 80 out of 100 bucket list items.
I am so excited to talk with my guest, Queen Michele, on today’s episode because she is all about getting others to move abroad just like she did. Queen retired at the age of 52 and moved to Mexico as a single, middle-aged retiree, and began her journey of self-discovery with no end in sight. She now wakes up with a smile on her face and joy in her heart every single day!
We have made it to our 400th episode and today we welcome the entire EPOP team to join us in giving our top 40 (plus) travel tips. Today we have on the show Vanessa, Mackenzie, Ransom, Lily, Kaycee, and of course, my wonderful wife and constant travel companion Heather and we are diving into the travel tips and tricks we have all accumulated over our decades of travel experience.
It’s great to practice thankfulness all year long but it’s definitely in overdrive during this season and we couldn’t be happier. So to continue in the celebrations, Heather and I look back at the past year and reveal the 8 people & things we are most thankful for in 2019.
Joining me today are two people who have taken on many adventures in life, including driving a 1978 orange and brown Dodge Tioga RV across the country and, most recently, decided to embark on a one year trip around the world with their 12 year old daughter Kayla to expose her to all different types of cultures, religions, and ways of life, Kim and Scott Goyette from MeditationMutha.com and GoLoveNow.com.
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.
