Turn An Obligation Into A Vacation

We’ve all had those kinds of trips that we know we have to go on (aka those work trips), but we’re dreading the whole time leading up. Whether it’s that fifth business trip to Des Moines this year, visiting the parental units in Florida or the yearly trek to your companies retreat in Seattle – these are obligations, not vacations. However, turning an obligation into a vacation can be one of the best win-win strategies around.

On This Podcast Episode:

On this week’s Travel Episode we are cracking the code on those obligation trips and turning them into “obli-vations.” We are talking eating like locals, exploring a new part of town and people watching at the neighborhood watering hole. Also, discover ways you can use your credit card to rack up some serious rewards while you’re on your obligation trip – and then how you can turn those points into a vacation of your dreams (or at least something enjoyable).

My co-host for the podcast is my husband, Jeff Game, a travel, and music journalist that’s always on the hunt for a good story to tell.

Up a Treehouse with Chef Laurel Waters

This week on Lifestyle Thursday we have uncovered a real hidden gem of a restaurant in a small town in Texas and the story of its owner that’s equally as impressive.

If you drive up Highway 187 in the small town of Utopia, Texas, you may think that you’ve crossed over into the French Countryside, passing fields of poppy’s that line the winding pebbled driveway up to the European inspired manor that houses the amazing Laurel Tree Restaurant.

Oh, and there is a treehouse dining room that seats six in the backyard. And, they’re only open on Saturdays, leading to the restaurant being booked months in advance.

On This Podcast Episode:

All of this wonderment was dreamt up and is run by Paris-trained chef Laurel Waters. We chat with her about how she’s created a must-visit destination in a super small town, along with how she showcases her serious culinary chops in the heart of Texas Hill River Country.

It’s a story about following your dreams and being committed to your vision – daring to be uniquely you.

It takes more than money to make you happy, I promise.

 

On This Podcast Episode:

This week Jeff and I are exploring some of the happiest places around the world to live…well, a happy life.

Come along for our happy ride as we explore social services in Denmark, the “pura vida” life in Costa Rica and discover which part of Colorado that produces more Olympic athletes than any other U.S. city.

Octoberfesting Around the World

A few listeners sent us some Octoberfest questions, so we decided to do an Octoberfest themed episode. Since we recently featured Munich on a Travel Tuesday episode, we thought we’d tie these two together.

Usually, Octoberfest can last from the beginning of September through the first weekend of October, where you drink a lot of beer, maybe do some German folk-dancing in lederhosen, watch some wiener dog races and eat a lot of meat in tube form.

On This Podcast Episode:

Here are some cool fun-facts and highlights from some of the bigger Octoberfest’s around the country, as well as the lowdown on Munich itself.
