Our Destination Diary series provides a great overview of a place that we’ve been, or in this place, lived!
Heather and I had the great fortune to be able to live in Japan for 2 years as we taught English, and started Extra Pack of Peanuts!
In those two years, we visiting many different parts of the country and learned quite a bit about how to travel around cheaply. Today we share those tips with you, along with a great list of where to stay, what to do, and what you should (and maybe shouldn’t) eat while you’re in Japan!
Today we talk about experiences that had us shivering in our boots…
because it was winter!
Nick joins me again today so that we can layout our top 10 (or if you use Nick as an example, 13) European cities to visit during winter.
Not only do several airlines run off-peak promotions for award bookings to Europe during the winter (most notably, American Airlines) but you can save a ton on accommodation as well because it’s the low season!
We chat about everything from London to Istanbul with tons of locations in between, with a ton of funny stories to go with each. Where do you suggest we travel to in Europe during the winter? What did we miss? Let us know so we can plan next year’s trip!
The world is a big place, and there are no shortage of destinations to travel to, things to see, and areas to explore.
To help you get some ideas of where you want to go (or more likely, to help you pare down your list), a special guest and I will be presenting The Ultimate Wanderlust List: The Top 10 Travel Destinations in the World.
First, we’ll each count down the 5 best places we’ve already been to, discuss why we loved them so much, and give some travel tips for those areas.
Then, we’ll turn our attention to the top 5 places we want to go next and why we’re dreaming about them.
And because we didn’t talk about our lists ahead, there are some surprises in store and some interesting reactions.
This was a super fun episode to record and so was coming up with our lists.
What’s more fun than talking about dream destinations?
Now, it’s your turn.
I’d love it if you told us the top 5 places you’ve been and the top 5 places you want to go next in the comments below.
