Episode035: When you take a break for the summer


In Episode035, we talk all our upcoming summer travels. You may remember our friends, Eric and Ashley, from the sailing trip in Episode017 and yet again in our Prague/New Years travels in Episode026. Well, we will tell you all about our new summer travel schedule with them starting in June. I won’t ruin the surprise here, but listen in to see where we are travelling next with them! (Or sneak a peek at the links below…)

What can we say, we kinda like them! #coupletravellove

In other news, we announce that after a year and a half of our bi-weekly podcast, we are taking a break! Yep, between writing, traveling, language, working, and visiting families, we decided it was a good and natural time to rest for a bit.

You will hear from us periodically this summer via email, but our mics will be turned off! This would be a great time to dip back into the archives and listen in to any episodes you may have missed! We would LOVE to hear which ones are your favorites.

We also are talking about some changes. Should we continue the podcast as is? Should we find another couple to podcast with? Should we instead think about doing a short weekly vlog??? Let us know your thoughts on how we can improve sharing our expat lives with you!


Enjoy and have a great summer!
