Today is all about #vanlife but we are going back in time to 1975 to see how much it has changed over the years. I am happy to welcome Marshall & Debbie Hockett from Tripping1975.com, who, in 1975, hopped on a plane to Europe, grabbed a VW van named Banana, spent a year exploring the continent…and then, wrote a book about it 45 years later!
How much has traveled changed for you over the years? Let us know by tagging us in a post on Instagram at @ExtraPackofPeanuts.
Joining me today are two people with Californian accents (even though one of them is from Kentucky), a couple who has driven a BMW into a medieval castle in France and are fellow stroopwafel addicts, Jeremy and Lia from PracticalWanderlust.com. After a disastrous year-long honeymoon they now share down-to-earth travel tips from their many (mis)adventures on their podcast and blog and we dive into those stories & tips in today’s episode.
Do you dream of going to school abroad? If living and studying while roaming the streets of your favorite European city sounds good to you then this episode will fuel and help your dreams become a reality. Joining me today is the author of College Beyond the States: European Schools That Will Change Your Life Without Breaking the Bank, someone who is one of the world’s foremost experts on the over 1,700 schools in Europe that a student can get a bachelor’s degree from, in English, and who, for her “job”, gets to visit Europe regularly to visit these schools, Jenn Viemont from BeyondtheStates.com.
