Today we are answering one of our listener’s questions that we received through our Instagram account and we thought it was so good that it deserved its own podcast episode. We all know how much Travis loves his lists and he agonized over it up until this recording (TBH it was during the recording as well) while Heather was able to put her’s together in less than 5 minutes but that is not to say that there wasn’t a ton of pros and cons to navigate. The question is (drumroll please…) if you could only go back to one country for the rest of your life, where would you choose?
And of course, Trav has his ground rules for this question & is the flip flop master which you will hear when you check out this episode.
Joining me today is someone who once had to decide between grad school and interning at a castle in Italy (you can guess which one he chose), who has written two books, and who has helped pioneer the low-tech movement, Johnny Welsh from Johnnywelsh.com
Joining me today is someone who moved to Italy on the advice of a stranger on the internet, who can see France from her bedroom window (even though she lives in England), and who got Italian citizenship in 2 months, Sarah Mikutel from PostcardAcademy.co and the Postcard Academy Podcast.

We talk a lot here at Extra Pack of Peanuts on traveling more while spending less.
Today’s guess spent less to travel. A lot less.
Tom Edwards, author of Two Bucks to Timbuktu & Planes, Trains, and Broken Strings joins me to talk tips and tricks for ultra-budget travel and finding work while you’re on the road.
Tom’s done it all, hopped trains (been fined on said trains), slept under bridges (with and emu), hitchhiked, couchsurfed, and busked the streets for cash. He’s had more than a few adventures and today he shares those adventures with us!
You don’t need money to travel the world, you just need to be creative!
