This is a conversational podcast created by two married nerds in an attempt to document our travels and experiences. So far we've covered 1400 miles in Japan by train, a month working in the UK, NYC, plus life in and around Atlanta, GA, USA.
We generally eat and drink our way through life with stops for art, books, music, and (too often) work - but we sometimes need to remind ourselves to rein it in.
Where we attempt a minisode while opening another international snack box in an attempt to travel from home - this time to Thailand! Salty, sweet, sour, and savory with a touch of Rachel's archnemesis - mayonnaise!
Where we talk about some of our recommened collaborative games and ramble on about our love of Arkham Horror Card Game. Most are good for 1 or 2 players since we're all still stuck at home and unable to travel here in the states.
Where we talk about a way we found to somewhat safely get away in the times of COVID and our reflections and tips from past camping experiences. We also capture a bird catching a bug in front of our faces and discuss how Matthew McConaughey was born with bongos in a Nebraska lake
Where we talk about some of our favorite two player games. We touch on a few classics and spend more time reviewing lightly competitive board, dice, and card games - a couple that are particularly good for travel.
Where we discuss some of our favorite things to do and stories from our handful of visits to Nashville over the last 6 years. We cover food, lodging, music, culture, art quests, neighborhoods, and giant replicas of Greek architecture.
Where we chat with our good friends Sarah and Brian (the hosts of the Animal, Vegetable, Marital podcast) about their recent trip to Hawaii, veganism, learning to travel as a couple, hanger, and debate the virtues and disappointments of shave ice. Check them out at http://avmpodcast.libsyn.com
Where we kick off season two and discuss our top list of meals, including some nostalgia and some recent trips. We cover Mexico, Italy, Japan, Atlanta, San Francisco, Fort Collins CO, London and finish with how the best meal ever can be in your hometown. Hope you enjoy and would love to hear about your favorite meal! Listen, like, subscribe, and review!
Where we wrap up our highlights from our recent extended stay in the United Kingdom, primarily in London, but also in Cardiff and Swansea, Wales. We talk about Shakespeare, theater, real cask ales, pubs, food, ruins, castles, rum bars, public transit, museums, nostalgia, and just living abroad for a short period of time. Hope you enjoy! We'll be back next year with season 2!
Where we talk about my one month stay in London for work, Rachel joining at week three, theater shows, walking tours, museums, real ale, food, and tips for saving some money and finding fun things to do.
Where we pass over our Dragon Con wrap up because we took too long and instead discuss opportunities we've had to maximize work travel and our upcoming extended trip to London, Wales, and other points in the UK. Maybe a couple of tips and podcast recommendations in there as well.
Where we discuss Dragon Con, with a few asides about our cat Laszlo, as well as what we've been up to the last few weeks and our growing audience. We cover a bit of what Dragon Con is, our costumes past and present, prep, planning, and tips for maximum enjoyment. Let is know on Instagram or Facebook if you'll be at the con this year!
Our final Japan episode where we discuss out top 10 experiences and tips, plus discuss what's on the agenda next. This one's a little longer, but we think it's well worth the time. We had fun reflecting on our favorites and shout out to previous episodes if you want to hear more on specific topics. We also tweaked the transition music a bit, let us know if it still needs work. Thanks for listening!
22 days gives one a lot of time to try a variety of food and food experiences in Japan. In part one of our two part Japan trip wrap-up we focus on food and eating in Japan - variations on ramen, tsukemen, tantanmen, soba, and noodles galore; breakfasts, both traditional and our own, including natto, random fish, and finishing with miss soup; soup curry, cheese tarts and other favorites, surprises, advice; plus what we missed and what we'll miss. Join us to hear there is more than sushi in Japan and way more to try still!
Note: Apologies that we're still sorting out our recording levels and the transition music may be much louder than expected if listening on headphones - we're working on it!
Where we wrap up our six days in Hokkaido; discuss comparisons of onsen towns, ryokans, and kaiseki meals from Echigo-Yuzawa and Noboribetsu; and talk about food, the first concrete electricity pole in Japan, the view, and tourists in Hakodate.
We recap the various foods and drinks we had in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan - Including a comparison of ramen so far on our trip, more chicken than chicken, fun tiny bars, and a magical night of sake and folks who were friendlier to us than we deserved. Go visit Sapporo and Hokkaido! (Also subscribe and listen to our podcast ;) )
Where we discuss observations on Aomori, amazing sushi, more Joyful Trains, internal flight discounts, and most of all finally making it to wonderful Hokkaido, Japan, including our day trip to Daisetsuzan National Park, Kurodake, Sounkyo Gorge, and walking an abandoned highway that has been reclaimed by nature! It takes us a few minutes to get our stride, but we think this is a good one! Subscribe for more and follow us on Instagram at @reinitin_podcast
Where we recover from a lost passport (and wallet (and JR Pass)), take a shinkansen to Echigo-Yuzawa, drink sake from a room full of vending machines, relax in a Ryokan, bathe in an onsen, and nearly suffer defeat at the hands of a kaiseki.
Where we discuss various surprises and realities of from the first part of our stay in Tokyo. We cover cost expectations, toilets, beers, booze, lack of sake, and other observations before we head north and leave the big city. check out our photos on Instagram at @reinitin_podcast
