If you aren't following us on social media, you may have missed our exciting news... we welcomed baby boy Donelson on June 10th! We are soaking up baby snuggles and diaper changes here at home, but today we broke away from that routine to record a new episode. Today we're sharing EVERYTHING about our trip to the Azores... how we got there, where we slept, what we did, and exactly how much money we spent while enjoying three of the Azores islands. Tune in for all the details! Music: http://bensound.com

If you missed the big news out of the National Park Service a few weeks ago, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore was renamed Indiana Dunes National Park, making it the U.S.'s 61st national park. Of course, we have to talk about it. We share our thoughts, our experiences at the park, and clips from an interview we recently conducted with Kailey Capuano of Indiana Dunes Tourism. Enjoy the show! Music: http://bensound.com

When it comes to backpacking on a budget through a giant region, Southern Africa is no Southeast Asia. It doesn't have the extensive travel infrastructure, the masses of digital nomads, or the shoestring-budget travel possibilities. But as a travel destination, Africa called to us. Today we're sharing our start-to-finish planning process for our 66-day trip through Africa. We also list our Top 5 game drives of the two months. Music: bensound.com

In honor of Thanksgiving, this episode covers a smorgasbord of topics… all from you! We picked out some great questions and comments from our listeners over the past 6 months since we ended the first season of the podcast and started our 3-month traveling hiatus. Should I spend on a dream trip or accelerating debt payments? The app that donates to charity when you log exercise. How do you afford to take 3 months off? Why Gateway Arch National Park is a sham. What's the best Africa overland tour company? How do I get on The Price is Right? AND MORE! music: bensound.com

We are so grateful for the friends we met this summer while on an overland tour through eastern and southern Africa. They taught us a lot, but one thing that stuck is that we have SO MUCH of the world left to explore. Today we're sharing a discussion we recorded back in July with our new friends about the ups and downs of travel, magical travel moments, and why travel is important. Enjoy the show!
