So much fun

So I’m low key in love with Lia and Jeremy, even before I listened to their podcast. But now that I’ve listened to three episodes, it’s full on love. They are so funny. I love the way they play off of each other. Their stories are so fun. They don’t take themselves too seriously, and I love the way they talked about each other. And they make the places they talk about come alive. I mean, I’ve never wanted to go to Belgium, but I do now. I’m already sad knowing there aren’t a ton of episodes. Please make more!

oh...youknow ,

Nope

I couldn’t. Her voice is so annoying I had to turn it off.

Great stories with hilarious puns

Wow! I just binged every episode and couldn’t stop laughing at Lia and Jeremy and how you both play on each other’s sense of humor! Their travel stories are really motivating that not everything is perfect but yet still magical! Thank you both for sharing
