FunkTravels Podcast Episode017

Episode017: When your birthday gift is a sailing trip

We are in IZMIR! And last night was our first official night here (not counting the airport hotel). Transitioning into Izmir means some fun stories about apartment hunting and exploring our soon to be neighborhood… but more about that in Episode018.


But THIS episode was recorded on a…. BOAT. Yes, folks, that is correct… a catamaran to be specific. So you will hear some background noise and the audio is not top notch – but hey, we were on a boat!  To make it even more interesting, our fellow sailing friends joined us as special guests to discuss our highlights of the week and give advice to others who may want to partake in this adventure one day.

In no specific order: (check out some photos at the bottom of the page)
