Living life as a full-time traveller is dream of many. But does the reality live up to the expectation? Well, like a lot of things in life, the answer turns out to be yes and no.
Welcome to That Bad Review. Each week accommodation industry leader Adrian Easdown talks to passionate people from across the industry who share their thoughts, experiences and lessons learned from the good, the bad and the ugly in accommodation and hospitality.
If you’re an owner or operator of any type of accommodation or hospitality business, you’ll find That Bad Review full of ideas to help you operate more effectively and profitably, and keep those five-star reviews coming.
In this fun episode, hosts of the popular travel podcast, What The Pho, married couple Amy and Nick, share their journey to becoming full-time travellers, and what led them to give up comfortable middle-class lives for life on their own terms.
Amy and Nick share their trials and tribulations, as well as the great joys and lessons learned from life on the road. Oh, and by the way, if you’re not familiar with Vietnamese cuisine, Pho is a very popular style of noodle soup.
