Hilarious, Genuine, and Helpful

This podcast puts the spirit of travel back into my soul when I’m stuck at home. Lia and Jeremy are a hilarious couple with great travel stories, quippy jokes, and helpful information for destinations they’ve traveled to around the world. I appreciate their rawness and honesty about their travel failures and mistakes, which are bound to happen as frequent travelers. There are many travel blogs out there that could give you the logistical information you need to visit a certain destination, but this podcast transforms you to the destination they are talking about, and inspires you to add a new place to your travel bucket list!
