Traveling is just as much about eating as it is about anything else! It’s one of the great ways to experience a different culture.
And we had some great experiences in 2016.
Today Heather joins me as we go over our top 22 meals in 2016, leaving our favorite drinks and desserts for another “mini” episode next week! From the cliffs of Santorini to a couple of places close to home there’s something on here for everyone.
Make sure to follow us on social media to be part of the #EPoPScavengerHunt, where we’ll be purchasing drinks for our listeners at random places all around the world!
Every year we spend (a little too much) time searching through our emails to find out where we were every night that year. Figuring out how many miles we traveled, how many miles we flew, how many beds we slept in, and of course how many countries and states we visited.
Even though that takes us hours of work, it only takes up about 10 minutes of audio. Not quite fair! So we pair it with something else. Our superlatives.
What were the best hotels, the worst hotels? What was the craziest thing we did this year? The most underwhelming? The most surprising?
Listen to today’s episode to find out!
There will be two more 2016 in Review episodes coming over the next couple of weeks, our best food & drinks as well as our best experiences, so stay tuned!

Planning for the upcoming year can be tough. There are endless possibilities, but you don’t want to overload yourself!
Enter, the Rosebud method.
Jason Moore joins me today to chat about our method for planning out the upcoming year and how it helps us focus on what’s really important to us!
We chat about a couple of the big wins from 2016, the not so big wins from 2016, and a couple of our goals looking forward to 2017. Our method is super simple and easy to follow along with so grab some pen & paper (or open your note-taking program) and start the brain dump!
Regardless of your answer, today’s podcast is very informative about an avenue of travel I knew nothing about! Amanda tells us some of the tips and tricks of living on a Cruise ship, the best way to get a job, which Cruise lines to consider, salary ranges, perks, and even some of the downsides to working at sea.
Tim Leffel has joined us on the podcast before through our Paradise Pack sessions to talk briefly about his experiences living abroad for half the price of the USA.
Today he’s back for a full-fledged episode where he shares some tips on becoming a freelance travel writer and discusses some of the best places to move if you’re looking to have a better living for a lower price.
We also discuss the benefits of having multiple income streams, and how, even when you don’t have to be, we’ve managed to stay cheap travelers at heart.
