    16 Best Places to Live for 3 Years

    16 Best Places to Live for 3 Years

    You are really digging our "countdown" style podcasts lately so we are giving you another one but this time we are diving into the 16 best places to live for at least 3 years. We aren't talking about vacations or short-haul stays but living day to day life like a local, embracing the culture fully, & truly settling into the places we discuss in today's podcast.This one is a little more high stakes because Trav has a love of buying real estate and so at any point one of these places could become a reality so I (Heather) had to think long and hard about the possible future commitment this episode could be making for me.We each picked 7-8 places (hello, honorable mentions) where we could live for 3 years and you'll have to listen to see if we had any places make both lists. Can anyone say moving possibilities?! Today's podcast is sponsored by Oregon State University ECampus. What places made your list? Let us know by tagging us in a post on Instagram at @ExtraPackofPeanuts. In This Episode05:00 The Ground Rules08:10 Honorable Mentions10:10 Let's Get Started41:10 Drumroll Please...Number One's

    Top 10 Favorite States

    Today is all about Heather & I's top 5 favorite states we have been to and that means it is time for some good-hearted disagreements and maybe a mention or two of a few states that we still want to visit. This is another episode idea straight from our "Ask Us Anything" call-out on Instagram but we knew this would definitely need its own full episode. Of course, this wouldn't be a "Top List" without some honorable mentions so who do you think had the most of those?Today's podcast is sponsored by Oregon State University ECampus.Which states made it to your top 5 favorites list?

Best Travel Podcast

I'm a bit embarrased as I thought I had reviewed this 6 or 7 years ago when I first started listening to this podcast but I guess I never did. I wish i could rate this higher than five stars. I've been listening for that long and I still look forward to each one. Always inspires some wanderlust.

Long time listener

I’ve been listening to their podcast since early 2016 and have listened to almost every episode. They don’t take themselves too seriously and are very entertaining while delivering great tips and new ideas on travel.
