If you’re so exhausted and overwhelmed by your status quo that you can’t even figure out a way to add GOOD things into your life, you need this weekly podcast. Hosts Betsy & Warren Talbot know how to remove what's not working so you can have more of what you love.

Episode 64 comes to you from scenic Lucerne, Switzerland. Today we’re talking about how to have a quickie audit of your relationship if you aren’t quite ready for an all-out love contract negotiation.

First we want to update you on the International Love Affair, our tour of 10 cities in Europe by train (thanks, Eurail.com!). We’re sussing out the best love stories as we go through our own Romance Bucket List in honor of our new book, Married with Luggage: What We Learned About Love by Traveling the World. We’ve now visited Valencia, Spain; the Provence region of France; Florence, Italy; and now Lucerne, Switzerland.

On today’s show we have a celebrity wedding plus our own take on love Italian style.

Today’s interview is with a couple who’s known for getting to the heart of the matter, breaking it down into something doable and repeatable, and then moving on to the next big thing. They turned their attention to our annual love contract negotiation, and you’ll like what they share about this “quickie” that you’ll want to implement in your own relationship.

Episode 63 comes to you from historic Florence, Italy. Today we’re chatting about what it's like to turn that hot love affair from your vacation into a lifelong partnership.

We travel for romance, we travel for architecture, and we travel to be lost.” ~ Ray Bradbury

Have you ever imagined falling in love with an exotic stranger while on a trip? Today's guests did just that, and we'll find out how they went from a fling to a wedding and what it's like to be married to someone who grew up speaking a different language.

But first, we update you on the International Love Affair, our tour of 10 cities in Europe by train (thanks, Eurail.com!). We're sussing out the best love stories as we go through our own Romance Bucket List in honor of our new book, Married with Luggage: What We Learned About Love by Traveling the World.

We're Going on an International Love Affair in Europe (Podcast #62)

Why in the heck are we taking a 6-week tour of Europe by train? Because it is just about the most romantic thing we can think of doing to celebrate the release of our book, Married with Luggage: What We Learned About Love by Traveling the World (you have read it, right?)

In today's show, we'll share the itinerary (which includes George Clooney, a sex hotel, and pasta – though not necessarily at the same time). We also reveal what we're looking for during this journey and which one of us is the most romantic (you've probably already guessed which one it is).

You also get to hear a few of our "bucket list" romantic experiences for the journey.

So why do child-free couples hate kids so much? KIDDING! 

We don't hate kids, but there are some very well-thought-out reasons why we choose not to have them.

Parenthood should be a pretty conscious choice, don't you think?

We've always known that we didn't want to have children, but not every childless-by-choice couple comes to it that way, which is why you're going to find today's chat so interesting.
