Posted By Trav

Every year that we break down all our travel stats, best meals, best travel superlatives, best drinks, etc and we hear a ton of feedback from you all.

Apparently, these are some of your favorite episodes.

We’ll be running a 7 part series (!!!) that covers our stats, the superlatives, best meals, best coffee/wine, best beer, best desserts, and best experiences in our year in review.

      @katie diederichs – Thanks! That’s all the motivation I need to nerd out on stats again next year! How many places did you sleep last year? Any idea?

  2. Ellen says:

    I totally agree with you, Heather. My husband has season tickets for soccer, so I decided that I got that same amount for me to with what I please– travel. I like to keep things fair. It’s good for the marriage. And then Old Bess doesn’t get stuck in the middle.

    1. Trav says:

      @Ellen – hahahahaha. Yeah, you never want Ol’ Bessie caught in the middle of a domestic squabble. My only question – what if I like soccer AND travel? Can I just do both with you guys?
