If you have ever dreamed of visiting Thailand but have been put off because you’ve heard stories about how hard it is to travel in Asia (and let’s face it we’ve all heard those stories), then you will love this podcast! Because taking a trip to Thailand is easy. Easy peasy. If we can do it, you certainly can.

Just know that you might have to prepare for a few teeny dramas…

Ready To Spend 5 weeks in Chiang Mai, Thailand?

Liz and Brian are finally in Thailand. Living it up in the city of Chiang Mai.

Phew. They made it.

But not without a few hiccups. Such as being captured in the checkout line by two old biddy drug smugglers disguised as harmless grandparents for example. Bri suddenly developing Insomnia. Or causing the security guard’s mouth to fall open when we showed up at the posh condo gate in a cattle truck…

Sit back, enjoy the show and please don’t forget to spread the love. This can be done in a number of ways: Leave us a really nice review on your favourite podcasting app and say how flippin’ brill we are. Share this podcast with someone who needs a little adventure in their life or email me at [email protected] and let us know what value the show brings to you. OR…if you’re really super duper why not do all three?!!

Whatever you choose, please know that we love and appreciate you immensely.

We LOVE Housesitting. Want to Try it too? 

If you have been following this podcast for a while, then you will know that we have just returned for six months in Europe and Asia. While we were there, we did a lot of housesitting. We are constantly asked how we did this and if we can share the website that we used. So here it is:

The initial ‘looking part’ is free. You can oggle all of the beautiful houses around the world that are waiting for YOU to look after them. Take a sneak peek here! (As I say, looking is completely free, so gander to your heart’s content).

Then, if you are serious about using Housesitting as a tool to travel the world for free (as we do), you can use my exclusive discount code to save yourself 20% by Clicking here.

Still not sure about paying for a Housesitting membership? Remember that the cost of a yearly membership (approx $80 using the discount code above) will be paid back (and more) on the first housesitting night. It really is that simple!


🟩 Looking for the BEST travel insurance?

There is only one company that we use (and only ever use when we travel), and that is World Nomads. Over the years we’ve made three claims (sorry guys), and each time the service has been superb. Get your Instant FREE quote now!
