    Episode 10: Pets on a Plane, Putting Croatia on the Zadar and breaking (away from) the Moldova

    Episode 10 is probably our most random and senseless episode ever…
    Our travel news is essentially a tip about how to smuggle a pig or horse onto a plane for free. (2 mins 14 secs)
    Our itineraries sections debates how to spend a weekend in Transnistria: Anon-fictional country that’s also a slightly fictional country (6 mins 49 secs)
    Our reviews section is a recap of my stopover in Zadar, Croatia, during a trip from Brussels to Manchester. Fun fact, Zadar is nowhere near Brussels or Manchester so why was I there in the first place? (15 mins 55 secs)
    And to end I give you our preview of Season 2 and our African adventure… An adventure that at the best of times was the most incredible travel experience of our lives, and at its’ worst a journey that ended with us being maimed in a car crash and being eaten by a pack of hyenas.  (24 mins 9 secs)
