For the last several years we have been collecting stories from our adventures around the world together. As we talked about on last week's show we are getting better at saving them for later. From spending 5+ weeks crossing the Atlantic to bribing a border guard there are a wealth of stories to choose from.
In today's show we're sharing one of these stories with you. Plus, you'll learn which of us loves to tell stories and who is simply humoring the other after having heard them again and again.

In the moment we always believe we’ll remember the events from our life just as vividly as when they happen. But inevitably, with time we find that the memories fade and the details become less crisp and often impossible to recall.
For us, this creates challenges as we try to write about our experiences in the future. We struggle to recall specific feelings we were having or people we met in particular situations. When we bought our house in Spain we knew we wanted to document the process for a future book and so we explored how best to capture all of this to use later. On today's show we're sharing how we are capturing these experiences and how you can use the same techniques in your own life.

We've decided to follow our passion (pun intended) and embark on a completely new project. This episode we give you a behind the scene look into how a tiny idea grew from a conversation on a hike into a completely new endeavor for us.
We share why we're writing a romance novel. It's a fun conversation in which we reveal the project we've been working on the last few months and how we are enjoying this adventure into a new type of writing. Listen in as Betsy shares what it was like to write her first sex scene and Warren auditions to be a character in her next book.

Does the idea of "housework harmony" actually exist? That is the question which seems to plague many of the couples we come across. It seem inevitable one person feels that an undue amount of the load falls to them while their partner seems to shirk the entire concept. In today's show we talk about how to achieve more harmony in the relationship and why this imbalance is bigger than simply a disdain for doing laundry. The problem comes down to a fundamental difference between the sexes.

Four years ago today we left on our journey around the world after two years of saving and downsizing. Whew! It was an amazing feeling, followed quickly by our first big challenge of discovering there was a coup attempt happening that very moment in our first destination.
Yes, you read that right. A coup d'etat attempt happened on the day we left, in the country we were flying into. Without a home or jobs to return to, we had to quickly decide if we were ready for a life of such uncertainty and change.
In today's show we talk about how we felt about ourselves, each other, and our lifestyle back then and compare it to today, with plenty of juicy stories thrown in for good measure. We loved recording this episode, and we think you'll enjoy it, too.
