Posted By Trav

Have you planned your winter vacation yet?

If you’re like us, the answer is no, but odds are, you’re not like us, and it’s time to start thinking about some winter trips.

So today, Heather and I go through our list of top winter destinations. While we don’t HAVE to have been there before, we’ve been to several of these places and could go back to any of them.

It’s time to imagine some snow, or get away from the cold with a wonderful beach, and plan that winter trip!

    Hey guys!

    Coming at you from my crappy desk job. I’ve been feeling a little down lately so hearing there was a new EPOP podcast made my day! I’ve been spending the last few months saving money for a life abroad, so I haven’t been able to get away lately. After hearing this podcast (and Travis’s mention of Vail), you inspired me to reach out to my best friend and schedule an impromptu trip to Colorado to do some hiking. Luckily, I was able to find some cheap plane tickets and have a cousin in Denver to cut costs. So excited to go! Just wanted to thank you for the inspiration, keep up the awesome work!

      @Lauren – Woohoo! Awesome job taking an impromptu trip, and that’s the best way to travel – cheap, getting outdoors, seeing friends, and last minute. Hope you enjoy every moment of it, and at some point, are able to leave the crappy desk job for good!

    Strasbourg is in France! Its Christmas market is amazing!

      @Gina- Just another place to put on the list!

    What’s up Trav?! Thanks for the recommendations, I just got back from Austria and it was amazing. I only had a week so I spent some time in Salzburg and Innsbruck but I definitely experienced some hygga! Can’t wait for you and Heather to release 2018 wish list for some ideas. Keep up the great work.

      @Jon – Can’t beat that hygge!
