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.
Just because we consider ourselves travelers doesn’t mean that we are immune to travel mishaps, both those in our control and those out of our control, and today’s episode will cover our 8 mishaps during our 11 day trip to Croatia & Bosnia. Yep, you read that right, 8 mishaps in 11 days which may be a new record for us. Enjoy!
Joining me today are a couple that have been full-time RV’ing for the last 4.5 years, and who during that time have visited all 50 states, summered in Maine and wintered in Alaska, written a book that was just recently published by Simon and Schuster (and which can even be found in Costco!) and who are NOT retired, Marc and Julie Bennett from RVlove.com.
Joining me today is someone who last year set out to take 12 trips in 12 months but who smashed that goal by taking 20 trips in 12 months, and, here’s the kicker, did it all while employed full-time, Jen Ruiz from JenOnAJetPlane.com and author of The Affordable Flight Guide.
Today we are getting to #1! This was our most memorable experience in our 7 years of being location independent and it included filming our own special on Switzerland, gorgeous Corsica, and epic charity trip to Africa. You can hear how excited we are just reminiscing about this trip so you can see why this made it to #1. Hit play and enjoy!
Today is all about our first trip after becoming location independent! This experience taught us a lot of what NOT to do and a little of what worked well so hit play and enjoy (but please don’t make these same mistakes on your next trip).
Today we are talking about a trip that allowed us each to pick one destination that we have always wanted to go to, how we decided, and did they live up to our expectations (hint: they absolutely did). Come with us as we unpack our love for Georgia & Greece.
Today we are talking about our epic European trip that was a mad dash through the continent which was exhilarating and exhausting all at the same time. Hit play and enjoy!
In part 5 we are talking about last year’s epic launch of the Paradise Pack which was year 5 for us and included a family trip to Mallorca. Hit Play and Enjoy!
In part 6 we dive into how we kicked off the very first Paradise Pack back in 2014. We did some things very right and other things with a whole lot of naivete but in the end, it was such a success that here we are launching the 2019 Paradise Pack. Hit Play and Enjoy!
In celebration of the launch of this year’s Paradise Pack, we decided to put together this 777 series. Now, you are probably wondering ‘What’s with the 7’s?’ well this is our 7 most memorable experiences in our 7 years of location independence over the next 7 days. And today we are diving into our experience in Myanmar.
