    EP09: Paul Henning, CFO in Gibraltar & expat in Spain

    EP09: Paul Henning, CFO in Gibraltar & expat in Spain

    In today's show we chat to our good friend Paul Henning, who's living an amazing life in Sotogrande, Spain.
    We were lucky enough to stay with Paul this week in his stunning 4 bed villa in Sotogrande. His story is really interesting, and we:
    Hear about his travels around Australia (and how this got him his first senior position)
    Learn about the tax situation in Spain vs Gibraltar (HINT: one is almost double the other, but it's not as simple as that)
    Discover why he chose chartered accountancy as a career
    Meet his two dogs as they ruin parts of the podcast with their barking and loud drinking!
    Let's get started!

    08: Rejika & Opatija, Croatia

    In today's show we reminisce about our time in western Croatia. We didn't go to the more obvious places like Zagreb and Dubrovnik - instead we opted for the Italian-influenced border towns of Opatija and Rejika.
    Listen as we chat about:
    How we looked stupid by getting both town names wrong
    How lovely the locals are (we were at a BBQ with a family within 72 hours!)
    The food and wine of the region
    BONUS: Leanne told off a waiter at a soon-to-be Michelin star restaurant.
    Let's get started.

    The food and wine, obviously
    Important lesson on how to avoid a 500€ fine at the border
    Let's get stuck in then.

    05: Gili Trawangan, Bali. Interview with Tiki Bar owners Catherine & Tommy Milburn, owners of Tiki Grove

    Today is a special episode, as we meet two Canadians who've built a thriving bar from scratch and are having the time of their lives.
    As I mention on the podcast, the audio is a bit funny today, because we did the interview actually in the bar (complete with neat rum all round!) However the story will drag you in.
    So let's meet Tommy & Catherine.
