Episode019: When you have a love/hate relationship with your new home

Don’t we all have a love/hate relationships with our home!?! A month in to living in Izmir, we have found ourselves in our new apartment… not without some on-going glitches which we cover in this episode.


You will hear 3 things we are loving about our apartment and 3 things we aren’t. We also tell you how we are buying home goods(new, second hand, off the street???) and a couple fun items coming our way. Let’s just say that Catie is a little picky(said by Catie, not Jason). For some sneak peeks of our new rental apartment, head over to Instagram or our Facebook Page.

What else are we up too? Online course and visa runs have been taking up the rest of our time. Listen to hear more about what online class we are taking and why we are having to make multiple trips to the visa office…

In no particular order:
