If you have ever listened to this podcast in the past then you are very aware of our love for Ice Cream/Gelato. Since it is summertime we thought this is the perfect time to dive into our favorite places around the world for this delicious dessert (& it should be eaten at all times during the day). Here are a few of the things that we looked for when judging/ranking these:
Quality of ice cream – taste & consistency
Variety of flavors
Do they let you taste prior to selection
How nice was the staff
Get a pen and paper ready (or just scroll down) to jot down all 12 of our best ice cream experiences from our travels and create your own ice cream itinerary for your next adventure. Today’s episode has been sponsored by our friends at Tortuga Backpacks & Sauv’s!
Nick and I have been a lot of places over the past however many years.
But somehow I’m pretty sure Nick’s country count keeps beating mine!
Today we discuss our favorite cities around the world. We get through #10 – #5 for both of us today, complete with a ton of honorable mentions (you did know that was gonna happen right?) and a list of places that would NEVER make it onto our Top 10 lists.
Are these the best cities in the world?
I reserve the right to change my mind!
What are your top 10 cities, and which one are you going back to first?
Longtime listeners might know that Heather has a not so secret love.
Turns out, Jason, our often co-host, also has the same love. Though his is more of an addiction.
Today Heather and Jason list out some of their best coffee experiences, including their favorite coffee shops, and the best countries for coffee lovers.
I hold down the fort for those of us who aren’t so into coffee, providing some notes on ambiance, delicious treats, and the best hot chocolate I’ve had to date. And of course, you won’t have to wait long for Jason to break all the rules.
Colorado. A state where the names of towns and mountains produce a sense of nostalgia for the past. A state of beautiful national parks, gorgeous mountains, and amazing scenery.
And what better way to learn about Colorado then speaking to a local? Today we bring Jason back to share his experiences living in Colorado and to hear what he would suggest for anyone looking to visit.
We cover the best cities, how to visit all the national parks for cheap, great ski spots, delicious food, and of course, great beer. Jason also shares his Rule of Three, a great way to tell the best restaurants in any area you visit!

A Great Roadtrip Path
Take the 285 starting in Denver and head towards Salida and Gunnison before turning south towards Telluride and the San Juan National Forest. Here you’ll find some of the youngest mountains in the state, which are craggier, and very different from mountains found elsewhere in Colorado. Turn west towards Mesa Verde National Park and then loop back up north towards Grand Junction or loop back to Salida before returning to Denver via Boulder.
