European Road Tripping In 1975 with Marshall & Debbie Hockett

"Hello Travel, nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less. Host Travis Sherry and joining me today or to people who in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, five, hopped on a plane to Europe. Grabbed the VW named Banana spent a year exploring the continent and then wrote a book about it forty five years later Marshal and Debbie, Hawk it from tripping nine hundred and seventy-five dot com marshland. Debbie thanks for joining me. Huge. Welcome. Thanks for having us and we are going to get into the adventure that you had in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, five. This is a travel podcast after all, we're GONNA, talk about all your travels and how things have changed but to me, the most impressive part isn't the trip itself but that you wrote a book about it, forty five years later because so many people say I want to write a book I WANNA, write a book I want to write a book and I'll get eventually and you know they never do. So you guys are part of a very small minority that actually did it. So let's let's start with that. Tell us. How the book finally got written and why did it why we find like we got we got to do this. We just have to finish this life goal. Well the book was written all the time, all those years they happened to be A book that was given to us by one of our friends, it was a blank page book. And it was a hardback on the spine of the book was written tripping nine, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy five and our friend presented it to us before we laughed. Oh look. Just happened as. The original. So he wrote a journal every almost every day the woman who gave us this we're about A. Week from going on this trip for a year and she with noticed us. She gave us this book and she said. You've got to be completely truthful. You got be truthful and I want to be the first person who reaches thing. her name Melissa Marian Marcus. I said sure. I agree to those terms. Traveling for a year. When we got back. She was the first person reading. She loved. Unfortunately. Mary died of cancer. So. Anyhow I was busy having my own law firm. Makes CETERA. Sat on the shelf. This on behind. So it sat there for a long time a long time. We resumed our careers. Marshall had a really good a domestic family law practice in San Diego. And then he was appointed by governor, to be a judge, you weren't just sitting around not doing anything. Let's put it that way. Right you guys now. Retirement. We already had our retirement. That's right. That's right. You're taking it early. So so you go through this and the book sits on the shelf and sitting there and singer take us then to the decision to actually. Make into a published book that it is. Now, whose idea was it? was there any hesitation to doing it or did you think now after all these years you know we have to? That was known for traveling because just like you are. Trailing I was talking to court Turco and she was saying Gosh all the places you've been your write a book. Some clicked in my mind I said you know I think Arne. So. So I. Needed to. Do. Prologue. epilogue. Their tell her he made a sense of easy. It was not easy. Now hold on here. Yeah. Just just type it up epilogue prologue but. was, it was it word for word from the Journal or did you have to go back and you know add some different language or or make it read more like a book like I corrected some spelling? Errors. There were many corrections at all. It's it's pretty much word for word. Wow. Wow what and so you mentioned that you guys are now you're known for traveling. That wasn't the only trip that you talk all that kind of stuff. What do you see? As some of the biggest differences between like when you travel and then. Now or recently and back then because that must have been a pretty neat trip down memory lane. Going back through the book, typing it up. But then saying, well, this could never happen nowadays or this wouldn't happen nowadays because of this this and this gives us some of the biggest differences. The number of tourists. It's crazy now. So way less tourist. Then then there are now have you have you noticed that like just across Europe or would you say it's kind of a worldwide phenomenon now at this point like it's just so much more accessible for let's say regular everyday people to get a plane ticket to go see a place that they've always dreamed of seeing. That's what I would say. Yes. And since more people have traveled and written books. About it I think people wanted to travel more you can't touch stone. Stonehenge. They don't allow that you guys now. You can't see. The. Mona. Lisa, they're just eighty thousand lots of tourists near behind them across the room at A. Painting that is now the size of. Came

The Hidden Gem That Is Uruguay With Karen Higgs

"Hel Lo travel nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less I'm your host, Travis Sherry, and joining me today is someone who used to sing sixties covers in the psychedelic rock bar and Costa Rica whose hometown is roughly eight thousand miles from where she now lives and who is the only urguay guidebook. Lives they're carrying Hague's from Guru, Guay Dot Com Karen, thanks for joining me and a huge. Welcome. I was so excited to hear what you're going to take out of my via. Those good with those those. Highlights there. Right I. Love that I mean I think you're probably the only person. I've ever introduced that sung sixties covers in the Psychedelic Rock Barn Costa Rica Wall the only one who's intro involved. I'm sure other guests have done it because who has right? Exactly that's kind of par for the course if you're a traveler I want to start out, could you were talking about one of my favorite countries in the world but somewhere, I've never been so little known fact or maybe not that little known if you used to follow way back in the day. Karen I said that my two favourite countries in the world were Slovenia an Erg Urguay but I had never been to either one I've now been to Slovenia but I haven't been to. Uruguay. So I am very excited to chat with you I'm I'm totally shocked what why Uruguay can I ask my? So I think just when I started traveling, I looked at a map and was like, don't like what I'm taking I was kind of like entire nation is going to be taken back. There you go. I looked at a map and I remember thinking. Like where are the hidden gems? Hidden Gems when they travel and so oh, Brazil Argentina and I remember I and I liked soccer slash football and. Howard now I'm understanding more. Colors, the light blue I like Diego Forlan, and so I just remember thinking that would be a coup country to go because everyone goes to Argentina everyone goes to Brazil. I want to go there and Slovenia same kind of thing this tiny country tucked in amongst kind what you would call like tourist powerhouses of Italy and stuff like that and. Yeah I just so for me, it was like those are the two that I just I thought they use are going to be it and have been something. We haven't made it yet. Then that is a good question well. Yet to give you a little bit of background, my wife and I wanted to come to South America for quite a while. So let's say five six years where we've really been like South America let's go. We've still never touch the continent. One of the reasons was we are not and naturally very cautious people but because we were trying to have kids and Zeke was happening and all that kind of stuff especially down in Brazil we kind of thought well, we can put it off like if we don't have to go and I know Uruguay was not Zico hotbed. But of course, if we go there, we wanted to go to Argentina Brazil. So we kinda just kept putting it off, putting it off, putting it off. And now we're recording during covert times if you're listening in the future hopefully, you're out of it by then. But yeah. Now, of course, as an American can't really go there. So. I would have if you had spoken to me five or six years ago than I would have said to you that you have to come anyway for your entire vacations to Uruguay 'cause there's so much to do and enough of people thinking that it says side from Argentina or Brazil. Okay. So I would have said that immediately and I also would have said to you that you know Zeka. Zero cases here and that Uruguay has great public health policies, and in fact, right now we are kind of like one the stock countries in Latin America regarding the virus

"Spending less. I'm your host Travis Sherry and joining me. Today is someone who finally got her firepit. Don't think you can see it if you're on. Igt But it's right over this little fence. My wife and constant travel companion. Heather Yeah We. I've been wanting a fire paid for a little bit of time because we had a super old one that when we were renting our house I think even the tenant spot and it was horrible as we threw it away last summer and we never replaced it but now that we're spending so much time at home we've decided to up our backyard game. I Guess Yeah. One of my friends stop by yesterday. Just to do the whole social distancing their rive town drive by to say hi and I wasn't in here I was out and he asks heather or you tell the story. Yeah well he has like. Hey have you know we're bumping mistrial by? Can you give me a call? I was like sure he's like yeah. I wanted to ask him how he built. The firepit patio in the backyard. Like well he didn't build it. I built it. It looks awesome but we are talking about the backyard. If you're listening to first time you like. Why are these guys? Talk about the backyard if you're not on TV and you're listening to podcasts. It's because we have moved our podcasting studio right now to the backyard because it has been absolutely gorgeous day today and yesterday. And we said we're GONNA podcast from outside so if you're watching TV then you could see us. We are outside in our backyard. If you're listening to podcast you can't see us. But if you hear the wind rustling because it's kind of windy and all that and it's because we're outside so we're in the elements right now. We guy you gotta get outside your quarantined and the days. Nice even if you can't go somewhere exotic somewhere new get outside and we've been living by that mantra. We're really lucky to have outdoor space. So even if you don't have outer space and you can't get outside you know people have been recommending. Open your windows by the window and I mean in the US. You can still take walks. I think most most places but I know in some other countries. You're not even allowed to go outside unless you have a pet to walk so our love goes out to you and we're here to hopefully give you a little dose of encouragement because we're talking about some fun travel. That will hopefully happen when we're able to travel again. Yes so if you're listening to these are Corinthian diaries. These are assured. Turner shorter on edited off off the cuff. Podcast that we're doing in addition to our longer form podcast comes on Tuesday so again you can watch on. Tv Monday Wednesday Friday or quarantine diary podcast. You can listen to the podcast feed today having a little bit of fun so far all our quarantine. Diaries have only been about destination to switch that up a little bit and we are going to give each of us the three road trips that we want to take as soon as we're able to get out and go against these are road trips that were dreaming of and we decide to road trips because we'll because I'm just not sure about travel by plane and we thought about talking about how that might change but it's really just speculation on everyone's minds right now we don't really know the answers and you know. I read an article. That fares might be more expensive or that. There might be a lot of changes within actual flights which is probably going to be. He's I don't know about the flights being more expensive. Trappings that they might actually be cheaper. Because relational it'll entice people to travel again but that being said no matter what happens. I think I'll feel a little uncomfortable. Getting on a plane for a while especially with our kids. So I'm thinking that the future of travel twenty twenty eight for able to do it. It's going to be road tripping because there's a lot more it's a lot easier to contain yourself and your family like with in your car and you have more control. So we're dreaming about road tripping.

Oh I don't know if that's a derogatory comment or not you you like I don't mind I don't mind the car you're you're the one I just love like. We talked about the coffee shops. If you listen to that last one I like going to wineries the extra packing peanuts travel podcast episode four zero eight the eight hundred residents vince of Vatican City. Drink more wine per person than any other country in the world and it's not even close in the Vatican each person drinks about a hundred hundred and five bottles of wine a year which is double the average for France and Italy. And it's eight times the average for an American and get this. There's only one grocery store that sells wine in the entire Vatican mark. Hello Travel nerds and welcome to the extra packet peanuts travel. Podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less. I'm your host Travis Sherry Gary and joining me. Today is someone who made the call that I wanted her to make. It wasn't going to force you to make to split out the best coffee and best swine into their separate episodes and make them into what we'll call like many episodes even though they're not that many my wife my oh constant travel companion coffee lover. Wine Lover I'm GonNa put you on the spot and ask you if you had to choose one for the rest of your life which would be it would be coffee for sure. Sure okay. I don't know that's hard but I just came to me. I would miss wine a lap but coffee like you said I'm addicted so right and not necessarily addicted to one. I could easily go without it which I did for eight months out of the year in twenty twenty. So you wouldn't think I'd be able the two knock out so many good wines and I only have six listed so I guess that's not like so many but I made up for for it and some of the wineries. We went to well like three of the ones. I'm mentioning were when I was pregnant but we bought wine and I had it after So the going to the winery was was good. And then the wine Gotcha was good so I kind of made it work in that way you have in in the name of it now. We went to Croatia which is known for its wine and I was pregnant and I was a bit of Obama this is going above and beyond but owing to the winery in person and then drinking drinking the wine later meshing together to come up with one experience and a ranked list. Yes I am multi talented and in fact I even managed to drink a coffee at one of the wineries Because I haven't had coffee that day and they made me an espresso because it's Europe and what they do at. Why do it all for this? This episode obviously had. There's going to be leading this because she is the wind no. I don't know if that's a derogatory comment or not you you like wine. I don't mind I don't mind the car you're you're the one I just love like. We talked about the coffee shops. If you listen to that last one I like going to wineries. It's fun and I do drink. Think wine so I don't drink coffee. I always try to and I don't like it. I do generally enjoy wine but I just don't know enough you you know. I'm sure I like this but I'm not gonNA talk about Tannin's this and that so I'll I'll I'll throw my opinion around here a little bit more on the hey. This was a winery. Sort of the VIBE. I'm but let's let's dive into it. It's supposed to be a mini episode. You know us we're all about the giving you the in depth we want you to have the details so it'll be Minnesota. Ob shorter than some other ones. If you knew the podcast. This is part of our year in review series where we go through everything from our travel all stats and superlatives. Which you've done best meals? You want to check that out. Best coffee best wine. Best Beer best desserts and then our best experiences at the end so We are about halfway. Wait through that year in review series you can find them wherever you finding this podcast. The other ones would be coming out soon. So best wine ranked list struggle with this list as much as you do with the coffee. No I didn't because you know. I really had a hard time. Deliberating in differentiating between the coffee coffee shops the wineries. I didn't go to as many and I didn't drink as much so it wasn't as hard or you'll rectify that. I will record that especially especially because as much as traveling I love beer and we will have some good beards. Talk about in the next. PODCAST doesn't make us feel so good anymore because we love those heavy New England juicy hours with towers so like. We can't really drink so much of that anymore. Wine wine baby wine doesn't make me feel bad. I glass to glasses in you. Know I don't I don't feel bad from that. In fact it's even healthy. Some might say they'd have one glass of red keeps the doctor away anyway. That being said I don't feel quite as qualified with coffee. I know I know coffee coffee and I'm a bit of a coffee nerd with wine. I don't know like you were saying about the Tannin's or the different for rioters of the grapes. And all of that. I know the older I like wine and when I sip it either like it or I. Don't you're a mid level mid line lover like in terms of you're not going to nerd heard out and lose people but you know enough to know what a good wine sure and I'll start with my honorable mention. It is not a winery but to places uses that we went to in Philadelphia. have really good wine. The first one is pizzeria Bardiya and like I mentioned in our best meals podcast the owner of DM job is a wine connoisseur. Apparently he proclaims that on Social Media and he has wind source from all over the world. So it's very obscure wines. I had a glass of wine from Germany. It was delicious so good another spot in Philly that we love with psoriasis. Have Good Wines Seco- At our dinner there which sparkling wine. It was very very good. I only got one glass but easily could have gotten much more two of the best restaurants in Philly. So if you didn't listen to our best meals podcast go back and do that. You're missing so now if you don't listen to it media and Sarah Man and they're right near each other the frilly food scene so insane all right so then again affiliate with my number six. We went to just one wine bar drink cocktail bar in Philly. Would I was able to drink this year. And that was the good king tavern which is in South Philadelphia and what a cute little spot technically Queen Village Queen Village. Okay sorry I thought it was was like young. Might technically be Bella Vista. Oh well either way. Whatever neighborhood it is we walked walked to it and it was a very chilly night and we got in and it was just very cozy with dim lighting and candles and just a fun vibe? It was a Thursday night and it was just packed with people so it just made me feel like one of those cool hidden gem spots where like a lot of locals go and we were there with two of our team members and Vanessa and Mac to just kind of fun just show them. That's why I had never been to before and I. They had a great wine list. I I had a red there. That was very good. Mac had a white think. You and Vanessa mix strings. I got some cocktail pretty good. Yeah so just like a fun a fun vibes. If you're in Philly and you just want to have a nice drink in a cool place go to good king tavern. Yeah and for those of you wondering if you are a Philadelphia neighborhood nerd it live South Philly because you're right because it's south of South Street. It's right on the border of Queen Village in Bella Vista. So you're right there. I think it's seven and it's on seventh so all right below south so good king tavern great great spot. I wanted to go there for awhile. I heard really good things little French bistro supposed to have awesome food too. So yeah you're not going to go wrong long. You're going to have a cool experience there and it's not going to be too pricey or anything like that is it's like an elevated neighborhood joint yes it just felt very very goal to be there My number five is a winery in Prince Edward County so we wind up to Presented County County Ontario to meet up with our Canadian friends and the county as people say is a very cool hip spot to visit now and they have lots of wineries his and we there are two of them on my list. Number five is the clawson chase winery. It was very cool in this big Red Purple Barn inside. We did the tasting that's like couches and high top tables and chandeliers in the wine was good. I don't remember being exceptional but I think that's mostly because I was was chatting so much that I didn't really and the kids were there so I didn't really delve into have like how much I love the wine and we didn't buy any bottles so I couldn't then little tasting flights you're getting like an ounce or so and a half of each one which I have a few sips. TC was good. It was good had but this was one of my favorite places as far as vibe because just a really cool well restored old born Orne. Yes that's GonNa that usually GonNa win out right that's cool. That is a cool architectural style. Obviously you're in a rural part of the county. The need beautiful land winery with ceremony and was running around with the trees and playing with our friends and our friends kids and it was just. It was really nice and the and the wind line was good so definitely a homerun. Clausen chase vineyards in the county number. Four is a Croatian winery. We didn't actually visit the winery but we saw it from one of our favorite meals from Vittachi Vittachi. The winery Food Grachev it grow. I don't even know how to say G. R. G. I.. I V if you speak creation. I don't know how to say this. But the winery was great. We a beautiful winery like on top of a cliff if looking down onto the sea so striking winery we drink. I didn't drink wine but tribes dad drink wine at lunch and I had a SIP. It was delicious. He loved it so we didn't have time to go to the winery. Because we were moving on to drive on the road trip but I would highly recommend visiting being the winery because number one. I know that the wine is good number two. The building is absolutely gorgeous. The location is just stunning and number. Three if you're going to that winery. You're going to the best seafood in the world world. which is the topic? Because I mean there's no reason could have been higher on my list. But because they didn't physically enter airy you know it's number four okay fair. You're number. Three is another Croatian wine but we did not drink it in Croatia. We drink it in Bosnia okay. I don't know the name of it. You're like I remember the experience so we went to keep Mahala which was one of my favorite restaurants in in Sarajevo. Really cool spot. and they had this Croatian wine there they is so good travs. Dad became obsessed with it. It's called and I texted assume this morning and I said what was the name of that wine. He sent me a picture so he still has this wine and apparently you better get over there before. He's been saving to drink with me. He he said he put it in the refrigerator. The night that I had Hadley waiting. And but then maybe didn't tell me or I forgot because I have a bottle of this waiting to drink now that I can drink it is the motto seven Alba wine and this is from Croatia. But it's not from the Dalmatian coast. It's from Istria and apparently currently it's so good that travs dad tracked it down. Tried to buy it. Couldn't find it and then our friend. Nick brought it home for us so this wine. I mean Lina so good. I can't wait to try. Yeah shutout. He brought home wine that my dad couldn't find that we wanted and he also brought home a Bosnian Soccer Jersey for wit..

"Packing peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you gotta travel more while spending less. I'm your host Travis Sherry and joining me today as someone who's lived everywhere from Banff and the Canadian Arctic to Singapore and Dubai who's traveled almost one hundred under countries and who believes that just because you're born in one country doesn't mean that you have to keep your money and investments there macarthur up from the ex pat money show mechalle. Thanks for joining me in a big welcome my pleasure. It's great to be here Travis. Thank you very much and just before we popped on and hit record is telling you how excited I was about this because there are a lot of questions and misconceptions swirl roll around about money and investment in taxes and all that kind of stuff abroad and the best way to structure stuff especially for people who make some or all their money online and and you know live in this location independent digital nomad sphere so we're going to dive into all that stop. I also want to tell you I'm coming at it from a perspective and you probably hear. This is a lot of like a skeptical but curious perspective. Is that usually how you find people interacting in the beginning I I think that's a pretty fair judgement. Yeah you could say that I will preface it the entire conversation. If we're talking about taxes the not individual tax advice. I am not a tax lawyer. I am not a tax accountant general and we can talk about the philosophy of tax and why I think experts don't need to be paying taxes yeah and and and the reason I bring the skeptical point. I did an interview on another show and they were you know my forte frequent flyer miles as saying yeah you know you're that's kind of the vein that I find myself. Delvin people like I'm interested in this but you're GonNa talk about credit cards and I like that like I'd rather someone be skeptical and come with me with a bunch of questions and kind of do their due diligence versus traveler McKell whatever you say like. Let's just let's just do whatever you say so. I'm interested to to chat with you about that because it is a area of like expertise that you had that I've been interested in in a long time but before we get into all that questions and all that kind of stuff I want to dive into your background a bit because you spent the last twenty years continually really traveling how how did that start because this is now not just a part of your life but it it is your life so depends how far you wanna take back like we can go straight into the first travel like my face first big trip. We can talk what motivated the trips. I don't know man it's up to you where you start. Let's go all all the way back I love that what motivated this desire to even to get out and to start again making travel part of your life okay. Let's see so oh when I was growing up I was diagnosed with a learning disability which was very interesting. You know I was probably I want to say I was in grade three and they told me McKell. Your brain doesn't work the same as everyone else is. Something is wrong with your brain like okay. That's interesting you know. This is the nineteen eighties you know so it's not exactly pc but basically it was the type of dyslexia that HAP- and they ended up taking me out of my neighborhood school and they sent me across town town in a little white bus and I drove there and it was terrible. I hated school and I got picked on and bullied and all I wanted to do was leave and probably by around twelve years old. I started doing really poorly in school and and I started basically not going anymore and at fifteen that that was it I was out the door. I was done with school. I was done with all of this type of stuff and if you fast forward a little bit I went on a trip with my father. When I was about sixteen eighteen seventeen years old and we went to Ireland England and Wales and my dad my entire life had told me you know traveling was the best thing he had ever done and I had this background background where you know? I didn't feel like I belonged. I didn't feel like I fit in and then this opportunity came to me and I started traveling and I started seeing the world and I started meeting. Being people who were not really like the people I had met back home and I felt like wow this is like these are my people. You know this is my thing and and you know one trip late into another lead into another lead into another. I was after that trip I think has spent five months in Western. Europe and North Africa was like like nineteen years old then I moved out to Western candidate spent eighteen months to the ski resorts Banff Lake Louise Things like this and then I started hitchhiking through central and South America Erica is you know United States Mexico Belize Guatemala Honduras Nicaragua Panama El Salvador I took a yacht to Columbia was two months in Columbia Columbia yeah basically eighteen months with a tan and ajar peanut butter and my thumb out basically so yeah it's good and the travels of just not really they've never really stopped. You know now now. I'm thirty five and I've been at this for roughly twenty years now and could times man yeah. What was it then with school with that? You know you said fifteen year like I'm done. What was the feedback from from family because it seems like you mentioned your dad took you on that trip? So were they supportive of this of this desire for viewers to get out and go do different things. Oh God no no they thought I was crazy like even though my father had traveled a lot and so had my mother I think maybe the first trips like they were okay with but the leaving school know that they were not cool with that at all all day thought this is the worst decision ever actually now. I'm very proud that I left school at such a young age and I knew that it was not for me and I didn't belong along there and you know I don't think schooling. I don't think anything is for everyone. You know so I am proud of myself that fifteen and we'll even at twelve. I had that courage to actually understand that this was not right for me and go there and make my own way but I'm complete auto died act. I am completely self taught. I read more than one hundred books. A year. I spent fifty thousand dollars a year on coaching and training and masterminds for myself to educate myself I believe in education occasion and self learning but it is a find that formalized education is really not for everybody and I really think that unless you're going to be a doctor a lawyer or an engineer or maybe a handful of other professions that in this day and age school is really not the best option for many many people and it certainly if you want to be an entrepreneur you're school is not the best place for you. You know go out there. Find a mentor find someone that is doing what you want to do and then have them teach you model ruled them. You know learn from it. You know go back in time just like we had apprentices and really learn from someone who's doing what you want to do and that's that's how I like to learn now yeah and I would echo your sentiments not that I was as like on the ball with as you were when you're fifteen because I went through school and then went to university and things like that but I have found that a lot of the people that I interact with now not not all of them didn't finish score didn't go to college but a decent amount have like are in that bucket they urine and most of them are proud of that and I actually look at them and I say yeah. That's cool like you made a decision. When everyone else was telling you no no no no no or you know even if they weren't telling you that society kind of put that on you and you said now this is what's right for me and it took me a while to figure that out actually and so you were just there ten years before I is which is pretty cool now that idea of mentorship too was that what got you into what you're doing now with the investing abroad and the different things like that? Did you find a mentor and how did you fall down that rabbit hole well. A lot of my mentors are actually more in the marketing space because that's really the field that I have such a strong drive to. I like the psychology of marketing and I'm certainly not talking about giant coca-cola billboards on the side of the road. I'm talking talking about direct response marketing and copywriting and you know we mentioned or you mentioned earlier that I work in the ex pat space or the offshore space and that's true true but really what I do is I do a lot of the marketing for that and I understand the psychology behind and I do the writing in the content and things like that so I'm an expert on the on the content the things that drive me are are the marketing you know this guerilla direct response you know underground sometimes spammy looking. I love the really spammy looking banner banner ads and stuff. I think they're so neat you know and that's kind of where I come from especially with my mentors you know I have a couple of fantastic phenomenal nominal mentors who've been very generous with their time and and I learned a lot from so then how did you decide you see like the marketing aspect of how did you decide besides the content that you would be marketing would be this offshore and ex-pat space what brought you to that was just out of your own desire to basically save money so I think when you start as an entrepreneur one of the best things that you can be doing is looking at your history. Look at the things that you normally do in your everyday life that you were already an expert in and then you figure out a leverage that will I've been an expert for twenty years in your intro. You said you've been to almost a hundred countries have now been to one hundred and four four countries so I've traveled a lot and I- legally I legally do not pay any tax. I am a non resident of Canada and I live live full time in the Middle East and when I when I say this I will preface it we have a five percent. VAT here which came in in January of twenty eighteen but for income tax there is zero zero income tax here and structure all my investments overseas and I hold LLC's that whole different properties and for me this was normal life like this. This is just stuff that I have done for ten years and then a few years ago I started doing some additional reading on it and it was like like there's a whole subculture culture of people who follow this type of information so start putting out content and yeah and then really got an affinity towards it but I think the driving force for me. Is that marketing you know. I think it's like I study at all day long every day and it's just so cool. I don't know so that's kind of the joint between the two you can say yeah. When do I got into 'cause you say hey? This is something I had done and I loved that you prefaced it by saying.

"Teaches you how to travel more while spending less. I'm your host Travis Sherry and joining me today is someone who doesn't even like orios. But yet bought a whole box of double stuff Oreos the other day, my wife, my constant travel companion, and I guess someone who's willing to eat where he was even know she doesn't like them. Okay. I like Oreos, and you know, when you go grocery shopping and you're hungry. It's just a bad scene because you just get random things that you probably normally wouldn't bat. As someone with no portion control myself. I saw this is I said what are you doing? Because I would sit any Heather could eat two of them, which is we're extending when like them, I like them. They're just not my favorite snack. I love Oreos. And honestly would eat a wholesale voyeurs in one sitting so I actually made her high the Oreo. So I don't even know where they are. I don't even know if they're finished whatever so far I bought them three days ago. So far I've only eaten three. So I mean, maybe that's it. Maybe we'll s way an Oreo a day and Oriole day for this girl today, we are talking about our favorite dessert, and this is part six over twenty eighteen year interview. And like we said we're purist. So we don't start this whole thing until twenty eighteen is actually over. So if you guys have been listening following along, you know, that we rocked with our travel stats are travel approaches, we talked best meals best coffee and best beer over the last five episodes. We've got best desserts. Today. And then the last part seventh part of her seven part series will be coming out next week that is our best travel experiences. So that kind of encapsulates everything that we've talked about. And we distill it down to what we thought our best experiences where but today get ready to salivate because we're talking best desserts and both you and I are little hungry. It's coming up on lunchtime. We haven't eaten much this morning. So I don't know if we're gonna be able to get through this podcast without stopping and going for a nibble because looking at my list, I'm ready to grab something. That's sweet I know, and you mentioned like maybe after we record this podcast will go out and get a sweet dessert somewhere. But you know, the only thing that comes to mind, and I didn't have any honorable mentions. But I love the chocolate cheesecake for local grocery store. So maybe I'll be going out and getting that. Yeah. There's nothing on my list that is super local. There is something in Philly. But we're not going to go all the way down to Philly to get this. I don't think unless I don't know. Maybe who knows depends how hungry get through in this podcast. But. I do have one honorable mention. And then you guys know the rules, we each have seven, and we don't know each others less. So we may be crossing over a little bit here. But before even get to those seven fourteen really, I have won honorable mention. This is something that I think we could find in this house, and this is organic bunny Graham, home hustle. I have been trying to put on weight since we had a kid, but it's very difficult because every time I go and work out. You know, whenever you're feeding whenever I'm feeding with his little snacks the stupid little Annie's were Ganic bunny grams. I just can't stop eating them. I wake up in the morning. I give him some and all of a sudden, I'm gonna eat some..

"How to travel more while spending less. I'm your host Travis Sherry and joining me today is the first person to ever record a podcast with an ice pack on also the first person ever could've podcast while eating Milano cookie. My wife, my constant travel companion and someone who's still hobbled by this pinched nerve. And yet is perseverance for the sake of the show to record. First of all, I don't know. If you fact check that I'm the only person ever to podcasts wearing an icepack. All right deli verse in ever to record this podcast, the extra pack of peanuts. One thankfully, wearing an ice back. I mean, and I guess if you're going to be injured you might as well, eat yourself silly with cookies and drink coffee, especially because this podcast is our best coffee and wine of twenty eighteen and what goes perfect. With a Cup of coffee cookie. I don't know. Why? Not. Yeah. Why not? I mean, you have been laid up on the couch for a long time. Now with is pinched nerve, it's been awful. You literally have to have your arm up with an ice pack on which trap keeps saying oh Heather do. You have a question. Do you need something your question? No. I don't have a question. My arm heard. That's why it's lifted up in the air at a bizarre angle. Well, there you go. But thankfully, she's ok or at least willing to rough through it and get through it. Because today, we're doing best wine and coffee of twenty eighteen. And if you listen to show before you know, that I know absolutely nothing about coffee and probably even less about wine. I make coffee for but you do drink wine. You don't drink coffee. That's true. That's true. But it's all right. So I know nothing about either. Which is why you're going to be heading up this show. I'm just here, basically as a little hood ornament right to kind of throw questions at you and ask you, but you're you came up with your list of the best wine of two thousand eighteen the best coffee of two thousand eighteen and I will say that I do have two things one thing to interject on the wine list and one thing that interject which we will get to. So we're thinking, and we never know how long this is going to be for be for we record them. But we're thinking this will be a little bit of a mini episode here. I actually don't have a lot of wine on the list. List because twenty teen was more a year of crushing beer, which will be our next episode. Our best beer, which will probably not be mini episode considering that are breast breweries in the US only when for pretty long episode. If you're interested in beer as a really fun episode. We only breweries in the US the fun thing about our year in review podcast is that we can have breweries all over the world. That's true. And we can also we have to pigeonhole down to our best experiences of twenty eighteen so sure little difference. So if you're interested in beer, which is not what this podcast is about at all. But if you're interested in beer, check out our best breweries in the US episode and the next week. You're going to be getting our best beer experiences of twenty eight t I say experiences because it it's not just the beer. It's wrapped up being spent. But today many episode best wine and best coffee of twenty eighteen for which Heather is the oracle here the one that knows what's going on. And really. It has an opinion. Whereas I'm just here to chat about it..

"I'm your host Travis Sherry and today's episode is a special episode because this is part two of my interview with Ziana MacIntyre. So if you haven't had a chance to listen to part one yet, I urge you press pause on this one go find part one because in part one we talk all about the generalities around Airbnb and house Yana was able to leverage Airbnb, even when she didn't own a home how she was able to start using Airbnb to become location independent why she was able to do that. Why she how she fell into it? It was kind of funny circumstance and funny situation how she actually got into doing this on Airbnb, but we also get into some really cool concepts of how she was able to use Airbnb to do that full time to make. Fulltime money using Airbnb before she ever even owned a property and how she was able to do that. Also, a concept called master leasing which I had never thought about didn't know about something new that she talks about which is really really cool. And then of course, how she was able to take the money that she was making from Airbnb and use that money then to start investing in properties of her own that she bought on Airbnb go and talk about why she looked in certain areas, what type of property she looks for. So that is a very great overview on Airbnb and the process, and how one person was able to use it in a really unique way to start to fund their lifestyle, and she even retired. And she goes into what that means. And all that good stuff. So if you haven't listened to go check out part one right now back it up. Go grab that one. If you have listen apart one super excited for part today because we're going to dive into the nitty gritty of Airbnb. So if you're interested in actually doing Airbnb or you have an Airbnb we're going to talk about how you can optimize your. Listing. How you can set your pricing, basically anything that you can do tips and tricks to stand out and to start getting more bookings and making more money. So really how you can take your listing and blasted off push. She's going to rip into my listings as well. Which is really great who doesn't want to hear the criticism. She has in the advice, she has for my listing. So we're going to get into that right now in today's show. So let's run right into that part. Two of my interview with Ziana McIntyre were starting right now, I want to shift gears a bit and I want to get into the nitty gritty details about Airbnb. So we're at a point where people like all right cool. This sounds like something either I wanna do my own property. Maybe I want to master lease like we were talking about in in the first episode. Maybe I want to have investment properties that are long term rentals that I wanna shift to Airbnb or short term. And so we're gonna talk about like making listings. Optimizing airbnb. And why it why the short term game? Essentially, Ken be so fruitful versus just long term rentals. The first question for you. Because this is one that I've struggled with this. Would you recommend people list on multiple platforms, or do you just go all in on Airbnb and say this is this is just easier? I'm going to stay on one platform. Yeah. I do recommend trying different platforms. And again, this is another one of those things where you could go different directions with it. People say don't list on other platforms because they're trying to build a report on one. Right. So the more people you're hosting on Airbnb. The more reviews, you have the better chance you have of making super host all that kind of thing. So if you're splitting it between three sites or something like that. Then you're only getting a review every so often on each one, and you might not show up as high on the search and all of that. So yeah, there are definitely some drawbacks there. What's good about? It is. Yeah. Airbnb is a big fish right now. But they're not the biggest is just the one that we hear about a lot because they've got really good marketing, and they're.

I'm your host Travis Sherry and joining me today as someone who spends half time in balder and half time house sitting around the world who owns five properties manages fifteen others who thankfully enjoys nursing out about Airbnb as much as I do Ziana McIntyre from John mcintire dot com. John thanks for joining me and a huge, welcome. Thanks idea to say, I own six properties. Now, you you've got off to your about page. Then throw throw that must've done it right after because I just did it. Okay. Cool. Right. To know that. All right. So you've got me beat now, you're two properties out. So by the end of this podcast. I have to go while you're talking. I'm going to go on Zillow or something and just two more purchase. So it can be tied by the end. Probably give my wife, a heart attack. But we've got a two part podcast here guys in the first episode the one you're listening right now, we're gonna talk all about how unwise Yana decided to get into the short term rental game. How you can make money from Airbnb even if you don't own a property what it's like to be a property manager. The pros the cons all that. Good stuff. We're going to dive into that. And also how you were able to craft the lifestyle that you wanted from this business at your running and the second episode, which we're both excited about really going to we're going to get really nerdy. Then we're going to start diving into some of the nitty gritty details about Airbnb like a higher level. We're we're gonna talk about if you're thinking about buying a place where being be, you know, what are some things you can you should consider on has six now. So she knows better than I do how to optimize your listings to make them rank higher. How to set your prices bunch of other best practices? So we're doing all that through the lenses of the properties that I own two. So I'll be giving us Yana full rein to rip apart my properties. Tell me what I'm doing. Right. So we're going to give that to you won't want to miss that second Oprah so data come out next week on the extra Pakistan's podcast. So lots of good stuff between the two shows here..

"Teaches you how to travel more while spending less. I'm your host Travis Sherry and joining me today is someone who only has one Louis Vuitton bag, my wife and constant travel companion. Heather that is an interesting segue. Yes, I have one only one designer bag at all not to mention just one Louis time by only have one designer back. It is Louis Vitton. I wanted it forever. And we bought it at the original store in Paris. And we from that gut to free glasses of champagne. So it was well, we're I mean so to glasses champagne thousand five hundred dollars with free bag, right? So we got a free bag 'cause we paid five hundred dollars per glass of champagne who's actually a little cheaper. Because we got that back and the US was good against the US dollars. Good against the earth. So it. Actually, actually, it was a deal steel. I think we should buy one. Every time we go back and absolute a hopefully, the people don't vote for you and make us go back to us in Europe. Because then I guess we have to get a Louis Vuitton bag if you guys for me vote for me if you guys are just joining us. This is our third episode in our Throwdown showdown series today. We are going to be debating western versus eastern Europe. And if you've missed the first two episodes in this series. You gotta go back and listen to them they've been some of the most fun podcasts we've done in recent memory Throwdown, number one was Portland. Oregon verse Vancouver. BC not Vancouver Washington Vancouver. BC and threw it up on our Instagram at Paca peanuts, and Heather, Sherry and the people have spoken, and they have spoken very definitively. That Heather you are the champ. But Portland verse. Frank Hoover, you were arguing side. For obvious reasons. And I think that my main are you meant was the fact that you cannot beat the landscape of an couvert when compared with Portland because you have the mountains, you have the coast, right? There is absolutely stunning. And then, you know, of course, if you listen, you know, all the other arguments that I gave so I'm not sure if it was the city is more loved, and that's why I won or if my argument actually swayed people I like to think maybe a little of both. Yeah, we go to Instagram. You could check it out. You could still way in despite the fact that we are we are crowning. Heather's the champ. Showdown upset one. Thank you for everyone who who wrote in top that said without question on team. How there for this one Vancouver BC for the wind and I live two hours from pediatrics and four from Vancouver. So at top that on Instagram node knows what they're talking about. We had a few other people basically just telling us that how there was right at MB underscore Myers. Vancouver's everything Portland as plus the natural beauty striking skyline and the aqua bus. I would pick being Couva report any day. And of course, our good friend at court, bore makes the point that other Sherry is right as usual as usual. I like that I like that kinda just legalized cannabis yesterday. So for Vancouver that pretty much changes nothing. So people in my side. I gotta give a shout out to add toast, this and a few other people. Thank you guys for weighing in and telling me that that it was poor that you agree with me, Portland. But overwhelming majority said that Heather end van couvert the. Champion of our Throwdown showdown. Just amazing. And if it was more affordable to live there. I would probably see if I could somehow get a Canadian visa and move there for sure in fact, we've had an offer that you know, we could get divorced then Mary our Canadian friends separately, you know, so that we could live there. I don't know. I might be worth it might be worth it. I think what is definitely worth. It is at clo- rail said that we should definitely check out Seattle more. And I agree. Maybe next time we throw a third city in their nods expensive as being couvert. She says has salt and straw. And y'all. Step in the right direction step in the right direction. So thank you guys for weighing in right now. The jury is out on our on our Throwdown showdown number two. That was Thailand verse Bali, so you can head to Instagram at pack of peanuts..

Whereas here on the hashtag van life trip, just the two of us we are missing our third, although I think you're pretty happy weren't on that van life trip. Yes, yes. I was enjoying myself at the beach with wit and my sister and my mom. Mm. So we were having a great time, but you guys had quite an adventure, we sure did. I can't imagine what would have made you feel as if you shouldn't have been with us or would have wanted to be with us. Well, today we're getting moldy. Van, don't spoil it today. We're getting the down down with the dirty dirty dirty, the behind the scenes story of this van life adventure that you guys happened upon on your trip. So I guess let's does it found you, that's it. When fate smiles upon you, you you take the opportunity. And how often do you get a chance to have an old best invokes right an old best. So that's what you've named van. The van is named all Bessie. You call her best best better than Bessie. So I call her best friend ever needs Nick, Tim. But yeah, we dubbed her old Bessie. We thought maybe there'd be another name that came up as usual. A name came to try. Davis quite early, and I felt that name would eventually Volve, but I kind of felt like best was just a generic cow name. But as the trip progressed, it became clear that her name was indeed Bess. I mean, she's a big white van. So she's like a cow. She's big and white and she just takes care of business. I was just worried you take offense, but apparently she she didn't tiered her. She got you across the country, right? So she did indeed. Yeah. So I guess we're, we're, we're skipping the punchline right away. We made it. We are here outside of Philadelphia. We did make it all the way from great. Excuse me. Oh, actually, a little past great falls Montana. Vaughn Montana if anyone on Montana. Well, you know what's involved? Absolutely nothing except apparently a camper van that's for sale. And so she she did. She made it all from Vaughn Montana through to the suburbs of Philadelphia. I believe it ended up being two thousand seven hundred sixty five miles. I'd have to check the logbook bow, pretty sure that's it. So I feel like people out there might have some questions as as did I when you face timed me while I was in New Hampshire asking if you could. Event. So let's give everybody kind of, let's set the scene a little bit. First of all you and napkins and a bunch of other guys route and Montana. Yes, we flew out to Montana via Minneapolis. Well, Philly to Minneapolis and then to great falls, and thanks to Delta's beautiful, lack of wanting to fly in quote, unquote weather, which was nothing if enough, you spend an extra day in Minneapolis, it indeed which was a gift which was a gift because it was fun..
