Every year that we break down all our travel stats, best meals, best travel superlatives, best drinks, etc and we hear a ton of feedback from you all.
Apparently, these are some of your favorite episodes.
We’ll be running a 7 part series (!!!) that covers our stats, the superlatives, best meals, best coffee/wine, best beer, best desserts, and best experiences in our year in review.
In this episode, we cover the nerdy statistics of 2018. 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!
So if you’re into the numbers, or would like to compare your stats with ours have a listen! And then definitely reach out to @ExtraPackofPeanuts and let us know some of your stats, especially if you beat us for places stayed!
Oliver Gee, a former Australian journalist, can teach you fake french in 1:07 seconds, give you the most amazing insights into local life in Paris, and he just completed an 8-week, 2500 mile trip around France on a little red scooter, going 30 miles per hour (max) with his new wife on the back and somehow found the time to join us on today’s episode. He is the man behind TheEarfulTower.com, The Earful Tower Podcast, and he makes tons of videos all highlighting the beauty and mysteries of Paris while constantly striving to discover more about his adopted hometown.
Nate Hake is a recovering lawyer who after 5 years and $250,000 of debt, got fed up and decided to travel the world instead.
He spent his first year fast traveling through 43 countries & 6 continents but has switched to digital nomad slow travel to allow him to work on his travel blog Travel Lemming and burgeoning software company.
His love of the country of Georgia & being a sucker for emerging destinations has made us instant kindred spirits and I really enjoyed getting into what makes a place an emerging destination, what is life truly like after years on the road, and tips on how to travel more (hint: credit card miles FTW).
Our Frequent Flyer Bootcamp has opened its doors and you can get it for $300 off PLUS 4 free bonuses but only until December 21st at 9 pm EST!
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!
For the last few years, New Zealand has been on both of our lists and after canceled tickets (mistake fares that Air New Zealand canceled on us) we are so excited that it looks like it could be a go for 2019/2020!
Heather and I go through our top 9 destinations (and some honorable mentions), including a couple of surprising destinations from us both!
Here is the second part of my time with Zeona and we got into the nitty-gritty of what works and what doesn’t! We discussed the different platforms (positives & negatives), mistakes in listings, how to price, standing out in the crowd, dealing with non-positive reviews, and so much more. This episode is a must-listen if you have ever played around with the idea of getting into the short-term vacation rental game but make sure you listen to Part 1 to hear the how and why Zeona got to where she is & how she has made it her career.
