Episode 045: When you refuse to have family meetings

Welcome back to the FunkTravels Podcast!

Episode045 is a review of 2017. We chat about the best, worst, and unexpected things that happened to us this last year. There is also mention of future 2018 goals towards the end.

If you stick around after we wrap up of this episode you are in for a treat. The last few minutes gives you a little bit of insight into our continued Turkish via a surprise visit from a friend! While we still have a long ways to go, we are thankful we can at least chat with friends in Turkish.


“If you are moving, then you aren’t traveling…” – Episode044

Episode042 – Weekend travels to Pammukale and Laodicea

Episode038 – SE Asia Travels

Single best thing that happened to us in 2017 


What we both read: Red Rising Series – Book 1 of 3 (4th is coming soon!)

Catie got through several books using Audible.

Jason is a runner now! (no link for that ;), but… he suggests keeping with it and listening to podcast)

Catie uses Powersheets for her goals, directions and tracking progress.

Future Goals:

  • Long-term planning for our families – financial, etc.
  • Jason Monthly goals/reviews throughout the year
  • Catie will continue pursuing her travel writing and website.
  • Both of us will continue language.


Questions for the listeners:

  • Do you do a Year End Review with your family?
  • If so, what questions do you?
  • Were you surprised how 2017 turned out?
  • Do you have ‘family meetings’?

As always, email us your questions and we will answer them in a future episode!
