Episode038: When you spend a month together in Asia

Happy October! Fall IS coming, and we can smell it in the air. Our doors and windows are open to let the cooler winds into our home! While we don’t give you a life update on the podcast, we want to let you know that are 2-year visa applications are in the works! We are hoping that all of it should be processed and our new visas will be in our hands in the next month! Please be thinking about us in this in-between time and for approval! Currently, we are in limbo between our currently expired visas and the new ones coming in… which is never fun.

In this episode, we cover our WHOLE month-long travel through SouthEast Asia with our friends Eric and Ashley. Yes, ALL OF IT! Which means, this episode is somewhat of a long one. So grab a cup of coffee and find a cozy spot and picture us sitting in your living room or kitchen table chatting over our favorite memories. Some of our least favorite things may have also snuck their way into the conversation too. But, hey, what is the good without a little bit of the bad right?

We are still working on some website articles including our fun pics, but until then check out our #funrowtravelasia hashtag on Instagram!
