    You hear all about the wonders of travel but, what happens when you come back? Spoiler: it's not all roses. The reverse culture shock is real. We share our experiences of how it felt coming back home after a year away.

    17 - A Wanderer Awakens

    Oh, the lengths we go to for our fandoms! In honor of May the 4th, we share our story of how we managed our way through torrential down pours, bad traffic, and heated arguments to see Force Awakens in Bali.

    16 - Pero, Let Us Wander

    15 - Playing Maps and Alternate Travel Destinations

    We lift the veil on our trip planning methods which really mean, we show you how we really don’t plan all that much. The fun is in the adventure and when we choose new places to travel to we try to go to locations we don’t know too much about.

    14 - Geo is a Savage. And other Answers!

    An off-the-cuff segment where Geo asks random questions to Adry. This time around we discuss strange sleeping arrangements, Geo being a savage when it comes to food, Adry shares a lot of bathroom habits, and more normal topics like best beaches.

    TIME OUT: April 7, 2017

    TIME OUT! (just like Zack Morris would do in Saved by the Bell) We interrupt the regularly scheduled episodes to bring you a bonus episode with a recap of what we are currently doing and some of our favorite things as well as some not so happy events all in the realm of being honest.

    12 - Samoa = Moana

    Why did Adry ugly cry during Moana? Because it looked just like Samoa. Though we went because of a visa mishap, Samoa ended up being one of the most unforgettable places we have been to.

    11 - Like a Freaking Bird - How to Maneuver Air Travel Like a Pro

    Today, we are talking about air travel. Airports bring out the worst in people and we are here to help you not be a dick in 3 easy tips:

    Be organized - bring your passport! You planned this whole trip don’t let a simple organization hiccup trip you up. Have your essentials accessible - make yourself comfortable and have the items you need near you. No sense in having multiple bags with an important item in each bag making you go up and down, back and forth to get each one. Bundle them all together and keep them with you. Wait for the doors to open - Don’t be that guy. The doors aren’t open yet. Where are you going to go? Just file out calmly with all our belongs AFTER the doors open.

    Wandering Wisdom: Packing cubes! What life savers! These are the exact packs we used on our trip and I cannot recommend them enough. They are by Eagle Creek and we have used and abused these guys and they are still kicking. They make packing some much easier condensing clothes while organizing everything. Win-Win.

    10 - NYC v. CHI Which City is the Best?

    10 whole episodes, guys! The big 1-0! In this episode we finally lay to rest which city is best, NYC or CHI. Who will reign supreme in this epic throwdown between the Big Apple and the Windy City?!

    But, really, it’s not that dramatic. We recently visited both New York City and Chicago on weekend trips and very much enjoyed each experience. But, there must only be one winner...

    09 - Say Troll One More Time - Norway

    The real MVP of this episode - the Trolls - try to count how many times we say “troll”. But, besides that, we deep dive into Norway! Expanding upon our first impressions mentioned in episode 6, we talk about what we liked and didn’t like about Norway. Though Oslo wasn’t for us, there is undeniable beauty in it with rich culture like the Viking Ship Museum and Vigeland Sculpture park. The best part of Norway was definitely the nature - such stunning fjords in Geiranger and beautiful mountain/sea life in Bergen.

    Travel Tip: You can’t plan for everything. Roll with the punches and take whatever mishaps you might encounter with stride. Don’t let one setback ruin your overall experience

    08 - Nerding Out with Lady Epi

    We double down on our nerd talk with our first, very special guest Epi! As fate would have it, our paths merged when we all worked in the same building bringing forth a geek-filled friendship.

    Part of the reason we choose some travel destinations is because some of our favorite fandoms were filmed there or inspired by the landscapes. In this episode we have the delight of going down the nerd rabbit hole and talk to Epi about some of our favorite locations.

    We're crapping all over a lot of places this episode but, hey, that's just, like, our opinion, man! Geo prompts some questions this episode and the Wanderers share their unfiltered opinions on which countries met their expectations and which places are overrated. Some is lighthearted, some not so much but, all moments that shaped us.

    Iceland is a literal land of fire and ice with so much to offer. On this episode we talk about our first impressions of Iceland and our recommendations based on: views, food, and people.

    02 - Zombie Pirates of St. Augustine

    We found a common ground in our current TV and book obsessions through St. Augustine, Florida.  How is The Southern Reach trilogy books and Starz Black Sails show related? They aren't but, we sure do find the connection though weird Florida, pirates, and the inevitable zombie apocalypse.  Come along as we connect the dots and plan another trip to see St. Augustine in another light.
