Only One Country…For The Rest Of Our Lives

Extra Pack Of Peanuts Podcast Only One Country...For The Rest Of Our Lives


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.

Today’s podcast is sponsored by Oregon State University ECampus.
