Best podcast!

I love EPOP! Travis and Heather are amazing. I’ve been following their podcast since 2015/2016 when I was planning my honeymoon! They have inspired many of incredible trips booked using credit card points - think Bora Bora, the Maldives, Bali and Hawaii! This is a show I listen to when I wish I could travel and can’t, when I’m planning travel, when I’m Christmas shopping or packing for a trip, when I want a comfort (like when I was pregnant and feeling awful) and when I just want to chill! Seriously, it is like they are my family even though they don’t know me. Please, everyone, listen to this podcast, hit an EPOP pose in an amazing location and just appreciate that there are people such as Travis and Heather in this world!!

Getting me through quarantine

Love this podcast! They have really changed their content around quarantine which is super nice. Can’t wait to get back to traveling and exploring some of their recommendations. I’ve always wanted to go to Vancouver Island and think it definitely needs to happen ASAP after their podcast on BC.
