Ep 35 – Dear God, Get Us Out of Here!
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The ladies HATE Acapulco, and can’t wait to get out. June was the deadliest month in Acapulco’s history, with 2,234 murders – it’s very murdery out here, and the Gringas are ready to leave.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Aside from all the killing that goes on courtesy of the cartel activity in the area, there are other problems. Gabriela the Airbnb host has turned into a Code Red stalker, and has done everything from send a “real estate agent” in to take pics of the house (pre housekeeping service) to text message Kelly every goddamn day. The ladies want to escape Gabriela almost as they want to escape Acapulco.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Kelly had a terrifying encounter with a large snake at the pool, and the Gringas are terrified that a bat is going to fly into their condo.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Also, there’s a real dog problem in these streets. The ladies talk about a certain (alleged!) scam artist who is working to draw more expats to Acapulco, and his strategy of roaming with his own pack of dogs. Kelly’s noticed this strategy, and has hot tips on how you can maximize the effectiveness of your dog pack (hint: you’re going to need specialists).</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Having been sick for almost 4 weeks straight, Kari and Kelly have decided to cut their Acapulco trip a few days short and head to San Diego – and the land of drinkable tap water – early.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Subscribe on Patreon to get access to exclusive videos, photos and GIF-fery: www.patreon.com/workationing</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing  </span></p>

Ep 34 – Cartel Country 2: Gringas in Acapulco
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Santiago is back in town (check out the Medellín episodes to get the full story on this character), and he came just in time to see Kari and Kelly through some sort of crazy food poisoning flu situation.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Kelly finally Googles Acapulco, which – turns out – is the most dangerous city in Mexico, and has been since 2012. The ladies talk about some of the cartel activity that occurs in the Pearl of the Pacific, including: assassinations via jet ski, multiple heads on pikes outside of government buildings and shooting tourists in the streets, among many other horrific events that have recently occurred.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Gringas are happy that they’ve imported a fixer for this leg, because Acapulco is an incredibly dangerous place. It’s not just not up to code, it’s not a place two ladies should be Workationing alone.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Toward the end of the episode, the ladies take a detour to talk about what it’s like to lose weight around men – and hear their opinions on related matters. It’s a fun feminist rant that many listeners are likely to identify with.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Resource links for this episode:</span></p> <p><a href= "https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/feb/06/spanish-tourists-acapulco-raped-gunpoint"> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/feb/06/spanish-tourists-acapulco-raped-gunpoint</span></a></p> <p><a href= "https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2016/dec/13/gunfire-tourist-resort-acapulco-mexico-torn-apart-violence"> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2016/dec/13/gunfire-tourist-resort-acapulco-mexico-torn-apart-violence</span></a></p> <p><a href= "http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128985632"><span style="font-weight: 400;"> http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128985632</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Subscribe on Patreon to get access to exclusive videos, photos and GIF-fery: www.patreon.com/workationing</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing  </span></p>

Ep 33 – Staying in John Wayne’s Sex Dojo (Bucket List #7: The Los Flamingos)
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The ladies are having a hell of a time in Acapulco, and not in the good way. To escape from their Airbnb compound for a couple of days, they decided to hit up the local hotspot all of the cab drivers keep telling them about: The Los Flamingos Resort, which was once owned by John Wayne. The entire hotel is pink, kitschy and everything Kari’s ever dreamed of in a throwback resort.</span></p> <p>Formerly referred to as Hollywood Gang Hideaway (from 1950-1984), the resort – and in particular, Casa Tarzan, the standalone round house on the property – was frequented by the likes of Cary Grant, Farrah Fawcett, Joan Collins, Errol Flynn, George Hamilton, Roy Rogers and lots of other Old Hollywood royalty. Johnny Weissmueller, the actor who played Tarzan, lived in the house named after him until he died. Hopefully not in the actual Casa Tarzan, but that was never made entirely clear.</p> <p>You can still feel the Old Hollywood glam as you walk around the place, and there are placards with stories and photos of the celebrities who used to party HARD at the Los Flamingos. The hotel is like a time capsule of days long gone, and the celebrities who came to this hotel put Acapulco on the map as a THE place for the rich and famous to go on vacation. In turn, that attracted more regular tourists...for a time, at least.</p> <p>Obviously a Quadruple Junior Suite Deluxe ($76/night) wasn’t bucket list-y enough for a stay at the Los Flamingos, so the Gringas went big and sprung for a night in Casa Tarzan ($150/night). Once they got a tour of the resort and Casa Tarzan, the Gringas were SOLD – and not just on the wraparound windows and gorgeous views.</p> <p>Without a doubt, some VERY sexy shenanigans went down at Casa Tarzan back in the day. If the building’s architecture and design are any indication, John Wayne and his friends must’ve been real sex fiends. The circular house is bifurcated down the middle, with the left half split into two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a small kitchenette.</p> <p>The rest of the house is dedicated to the living room, which is what makes Casa Tarzan what it is: incredible. There’s a platform bed that’s built into the living room, and there’s a wraparound spectator couch that seats 12, uh, spectators. A hammock is slung between the bed and the couch, but doesn’t obstruct the view. This living room isn’t a living room at all, it’s a fuck dojo the likes of which the ladies had never seen before.</p> <p>A coco loco after checking into the Old Hollywood sex dojo, the ladies are swimming in the kidney-shaped pool, taking in a sunset from the inside of a dragon’s mouth and overall blissed out...until night falls and the horror show begins.</p> <p>It starts with bugs so big it’s a real mystery how they’re also able to fly – and they’re INSIDE the house with the Gringas. Before the bug situation starts to get really out of control, the roving pack of dogs show up and start running laps around the circle of the wraparound porch. They’re still out there when the bugs start to exponentially multiply, but the dude at the front desk is not.</p> <p>The mattresses at Casa Tarzan are not to be missed, mostly because you can’t escape the smell of them if you tried. It’s entirely possible that the mattresses in Casa Tarzan are the originals that John Wayne and his friends got down on, and while Kari was got sick over the scent of guests from the past Kelly received dozens of bug bites on her back. At least, the ladies are hoping those are bug bites, and not some sort of rash that will require hospital attention.</p> <p>Through a series of events that aren’t up to code (namely, the resort didn’t take a credit card or payment upon entry, only exit, and there wasn’t a night manager), the ladies ended up stuck in a Technicolor dream turned nightmare.</p> <p>To get a tour of Casa Tarzan, check out Workationing on Patreon (link below), where you can see additional videos and pics of Kari, Kelly and their adventures.</p> <p>Resource links for this episode:</p> <p><a href= "https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2006/apr/15/mexico.guardiansaturdaytravelsection"> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2006/apr/15/mexico.guardiansaturdaytravelsection</span></a></p> <p><a href= "http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128985632"><span style="font-weight: 400;"> http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128985632</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</span></p> <p>Help the ladies knock items off of their bucket lists at Patreon: www.patreon.com/workationing</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p>And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing  </p>

Ep 32 – We Made it to Acapulco, Mexico!
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The ladies have gone from Montreal to Boston to live tweet from the Pride parade (work is tough sometimes), and have now settled into their Airbnb in Acapulco. How’d they find this place? It starts with Kiwi.com, the Flo Rida music video for Whistle and a $177 one-way flight – and ends with some killer views and regrets.</span></p> <p>Acapulco is hot AF, and the sweat situation is making it a real challenge to stay hydrated. Kari got sick almost immediately upon arrival, and a stranger broke into the apartment at 9am...just in time to see Kelly with no pants on. The ladies also have a cray cray Airbnb host to contend with, which should make this an interesting leg of the trip.</p> <p>Fortunately, Santiago has heard of this Acapulco business and isn’t at all impressed – he’s flying in to keep an eye on the Gringas in this strange, and allegedly dangerous, city. Before listening to this episode, check out the Medellin content (specifically, Finding Fixers in Medellin and Gringas in a Strange Land) to become acquainted with THE Santiago, who has become our ultimate fixer.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out</span> <a href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.workationing.com"><span style="font-weight: 400;"> www.workationing.com</span></a><span style= "font-weight: 400;">.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Help the ladies knock items off of their bucket lists at Patreon:</span> <a href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.patreon.com%2Fworkationing"><span style="font-weight: 400;"> www.patreon.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fworkationing"> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter:</span> <a href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.twitter.com%2Fworkationing"><span style="font-weight: 400;"> www.twitter.com/workationing</span></a></p>

Ep 31 - Harsh Truths from Your Gringas
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This one is mostly for the ladies, but guys, there’s lots for you to learn here, too. On this episode Kari and Kelly are talking about some of the harsh truths that they’ve come across while doing this whole intentional living thing.</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><br /> </span><span style="font-weight: 400;"><br /></span><span style= "font-weight: 400;">One of the harshest of these truths is that what you look like actually does matter — and not just in some abstract way. It actually affects every part of your life from how you are perceived by others (do they think you are likeable, trustworthy, and competent?) to how much you make in your lifetime (attractive people make $250,000 more).</span> <span style= "font-weight: 400;"><br /></span><span style= "font-weight: 400;"><br /></span><span style= "font-weight: 400;">This is not what two ladies who make a point to work from home in yoga pants want to hear — especially because looking good requires a lot of time and money. Kelly and Kari talk about the dollars and cents of being an attractive lady including the cost of makeup, regular mani/pedi’s, and hair maintenance. It really adds up! And that doesn’t even include the time cost, which for for two busy, ambitious ladies can be the hardest part.</span></p> <p>Kari and Kelly also talk about how much ridiculous levels of alcohol consumption is normalized in our culture, and how people tend to be hesitant to talk to a friend when they see them taking things a little too far. </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This episode wasn’t a fun one for the gringas, but it’s important. And if your gringas won’t tell you the truth, who will?</span></p> <p>PRODUCTION NOTE: Traveling with audio equipment is challenging, and Kari’s mic cord seems to have been on the fritz during this episode. It’s still listen-able and this was too good of a conversation to not post, but if you’re wondering what’s up with the audio — well, that’s what’s up.</p> <p>There are several articles and stats referenced in this episode.

Ep 30 – Bitcoin, Ethereum & Altcoins (oh, my!): Hodling on to Cryptocurrency and Regret
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Kari and Kelly have known about Bitcoin since the early days...one got in, the other is hodling on to some bithurt. In this episode, the ladies talk about their histories with cryptocurrencies and the insane amount of regret they – and other people they know – have about not buying in soon enough (or not hodling on long enough).</span></p> <p>Don’t know what hodl means? No prob, Kelly’s got you covered with a dramatic reading of the HODL forum post that went viral. There’s also an acapella rendition of Hodl On for One More Day to the tune of the Wilson Phillips song.</p> <p>The ladies discuss various use cases for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, including remittance to developing countries and charities that want transparency and to ensure funds get to the right place. In countries where hyperinflation is running rampant (like Venezuela), Bitcoin is literally saving lives.</p> <p>Kari and Kelly also talk about the various ways you can get Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash and other cryptocurrencies (see related links, below). There are traditional exchanges, or you can meet up with a dude from Craigslist or Facebook, or you can go to New Hampshire and try to hunt down a Bitcoin millionaire – the ladies give you some clues on what to look for in order to find one.</p> <p>Fortunately for Kelly, there’s a Bitcoin Embassy in Montreal that has Bitcoin ATMs she can buy crypto from. Unfortunately for Kelly, that Bitcoin Embassy is closed until the day after the ladies leave the city.</p> <p>Luckily, Chainsaw is in Montreal for a bachelor party! Chainsaw is a Bitcoin bro Kari’s known for years, and the ladies met up with him while he was in town. He set Kelly up with a Bitcoin wallet, now she just needs to put some crypto in there.</p> <p>To thank him for his help, the Gringas helped Chainsaw miss his plane back to Central America. Two days later, he’s still in Montreal.</p> <p><br /> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Related links:</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Kraken.com</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Coinbase.com</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Purse.io</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Bitpay.com</span></p> <p><a href="https://coinatmradar.com/countries/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://coinatmradar.com/countries/</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Lamassu.is</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out <a href= "http://www.workationing.com.">www.workationing.com.</a></span></p> <p>Help the ladies knock items off of their bucket lists at Patreon: www.patreon.com/workationing</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing</span></p>

Ep 29 – Getting Unstuck: How to Escape a Shitty Situation
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The most powerful force in the world is habit, and the ladies are creating some new ones for themselves. One of these habits is clocking 10,000 steps on their FitBits each day, which leaves a lot of time for talking. Specifically, talking about escaping.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Escape Room activity during Kelly’s birthday got the ladies thinking about ways in which they’ve been trapped, and ways they see their friends getting trapped in situations that prevent them from being happy, accomplishing goals and realizing their full potential. Living intentionally isn’t easy, but it’s worth working through that process.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Kari and Kelly talk about feeling trapped and seeing people trapped in bad relationships, jobs and careers, hometowns, debt or other financial obligations, less than ideal bodies, and poor habits. The first step to escaping a situation you’re feel trapped in is to recognize that you want to get out of it. The ladies talk about how they mapped out plans for their own escapes, and how others can follow a similar plan.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">There are some harsh truths about escaping shitty situations. First, you have to admit that you’re trapped. Second, you need to get some perspective on what it’s going to take to get out. No matter what way you feel trapped, you can escape – but you might not like what you have to give up to get out.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">There’s a ticking clock on life, which means that you don’t have an infinite amount of time to do the things that you want to. Accepting that some costs are sunk, and being willing to move on, can be a painful process but the not as painful as learning the hard way (and too late) about the sunk cost fallacy.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Don’t be afraid to change your mind, and when you do you shouldn't view it as progress instead of a personal failure. Be honest with yourself, but also be compassionate with yourself. And surround yourself with other people who behave the same way.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Finally, the ladies talk about their process for mapping out escape plans. It involves Post-It notes, and windows with a view.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Help the ladies knock items off of their bucket lists at Patreon: www.patreon.com/workationing</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing  </span></p>

Ep 28 – Escape Room and Poker Tournament (Bucket List #5-6), Plus Kelly’s BD
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Operation: Make Kelly Cry was a smashing success, and Kelly had one of the best 27th birthdays she’s ever had. To celebrate another year of being 27, the ladies had a bucket list weekend: two items crossed off of their bucket lists in two days.</span></p> <p>The first bucket list item was escaping the zombie apocalypse at A/MAZE Montreal, a big warehouse that features several different escape room scenarios. After being infected with the zombie virus, Kelly and Kari must escape out of a locked room, create the antidote to the virus, and then escape again – all within an hour. The ladies really threw themselves into this one!</p> <p>Next up was entering a Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament at a Playground Poker Club, just outside of Montreal. The ladies were one of several hundred people who entered, and only around 2 percent of the people there were women – if you’re a lady at a poker table, you’re in for a real treat. That treat, specifically, is sitting at a table with at least one asshole.</p> <p>Resource links:</p> <p>Patreon: <a href= "http://www.patreon.com/workationing">www.patreon.com/workationing</a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A/MAZE Montreal: <a href= "http://www.amazemontreal.com/">http://www.amazemontreal.com/</a><br /> </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">Playground Poker Club: https://www.playgroundpoker.ca/</span></p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p>

Ep 27 – We Made it to Montreal!
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Kari has her car back for this leg of Workationing, and the ladies made it through Vermont, across the Canadian border and into their Airbnb in the Pointe St. Charles area of Montreal. Approximately a third of the way through the gentrification process, this neighborhood is about as diverse as they come. Plus, Jock is in town – the Gringas first met him in Medellin, and he randomly happens to be staying in Montreal for business.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Fancy cars intermingle with crackie looking homeless people in the Pointe St. Charles neighborhood of Montreal. All the signs are in French and the local corner store looks like it’s recently been looted. The opioid crisis is clearly not isolated to America, and the situation is looking a little crackie. Still, this all feels a lot safer than Medellin, Colombia.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The situation in Montreal felt so safe, in fact, that the ladies split up for the first time since starting Workationing in January. Kari drove down to Boston for the New England Cannabis Convention and Marijuana Policy Project fundraiser, and Kelly stayed in Montreal to go to a queer dance. Fun and shenanigans were had by all.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The ladies talk about finding and/or creating an intentional community of travelers to tour the world (and split costs!) with, and talk about how their friendships with other digital nomads are different than some of their older friendships. Life on the road is definitely a lot different than life back at home.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Overall Montreal is a beautiful city with terrible weather, and the ladies are impatiently waiting for summer to arrive. In the meantime, Kari and Kelly have been sampling the local</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">How was their border crossing, and how long did it take? How many parking tickets is too many in Canada?</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing  </span></p>

Ep 26 – Gringas on a Diet: The Hangering
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">If there’s one thing Kelly and Kari love, it’s being on a diet – and in Montreal, Canada they’ve decided to get serious about it. Since Workationing started, Kelly is down 50 pounds and Kari’s knocked off 15 – but there’s still a little ways to go before they reach their goal weight.</span></p> <p>The Gringas are thoroughly enjoying dieting delicacies like raw cauliflower, vitamin gummies and all the eggs they can handle. Kelly can’t stop lunging everywhere, and Kari plans to ride her burpee downtown.</p> <p>The best news about eating so much in Medellín, Colombia is that now they get to P90X their way to buffer bodies. And the ladies can’t wait to BRING IT with their workouts.</p> <p>In their spare time, the ladies plank and think about what kind of infused water they’re going to make for lunch. Kari has dreams of wearing a gold lamé dress, sans Spanx, to a yacht prom.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.facebook.com/workationing">www.facebook.com/workationing</a></span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing  </span></p>

Ep 25: Kari’s Birthday & Favorite Place in the World
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">It’s Kari’s birthday, and the ladies are spending the time at the world famous Indian Head Resort in beautiful Lincoln, New Hampshire. Kari often says that it’s entirely possible that she’s going to travel the world looking for the perfect place to live, only to end up back in Lincoln. Kari is VERY excited to tell the listeners about Lincoln.</span></p> <p>Lincoln is like the land that time forgot and has a bit of everything: trained bears, dinners on trains, moose watching, skiing, rock climbing, an ice castle, farmer’s markets, a beer festival, and, of course, the Indian Head rock formation. But the real gem of the town is the world famous Indian Head Resort, right by the scene of “The Incident.”</p> <p>If you’ve ever seen Dirty Dancing and wished that you, too, could have the time of your life, and the world famous Indian Head Resort is for you. There are vintage tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, a killer view of Indian Head rock, and chits that you REALLY don’t want to lose (there are some problems that Jeff at the front desk can’t even solve for you).</p> <p>“The Incident” took place right in front of the Indian Head Resort, and is the first encounter of the third kind to be recorded by authorities. Betty and Barney Hill claimed to be abducted by aliens in Lincoln while on their way back from vacation in Montreal. Now, they have a historic marker to commemorate their weirdness. Kelly and Kari talk about The Incident, and what makes Betty Hill a grifter worth admiring.</p> <p>Resource links, including the website of the world famous Indian Head Resort:</p> <p><a href="http://indianheadresort.com/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">http://indianheadresort.com/</span></a></p> <p>Wiki page of THE INCIDENT:</p> <p><a href= "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barney_and_Betty_Hill">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barney_and_Betty_Hill</a></p> <p><a href="http://workationing.com/lincoln-nh"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">http://workationing.com/lincoln-nh</span></a></p>

Ep 24: Adventures in Coliving
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Kari and Kelly are in Manchester, New Hampshire for the next week – and they’re sharing a large house with five other adults, like a grown-ass version of The Real World. What happens when seven people share a space on an ongoing basis? Is it amazing, or a recipe for disaster?</span></p> <p>The ladies talk about their experiences, how much coliving rentals cost in both the US and abroad, plus what’s included. Coliving has always been sort of a hippie thing, but millennials are taking it over – or at least, putting their own spin on it. Kari and Kelly discuss where they could see it going right (and really, really wrong).</p> <p>There’s big money behind coliving, too. Silicon Valley-backed startups and goliaths alike are getting into the coworking and coliving trend, with companies like WeLive and Common creating coliving spaces to be shared by 8+ adults. The cost? Anywhere from $1,500-$2,000 or more per room in coliving houses located in Oakland, California and Brooklyn, New York.</p> <p>But who is coliving really good for? Kari and Kelly outline what types of personalities and lifestyles they think it could be best for (single moms should get in on this trend!). They also cover a few ‘worst case scenarios’ and top things to consider before writing the first rent check.</p> <p>Resource links, referenced in the podcast:</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Quartz article:</span> <a href= "https://qz.com/990247/co-living-startups-like-welive-and-common-are-selling-millennials-the-hippie-dream-minus-the-hard-work-and-revolution/"> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://qz.com/990247/co-living-startups-like-welive-and-common-are-selling-millennials-the-hippie-dream-minus-the-hard-work-and-revolution/</span></a></p> <p>The Guardian article:</p> <p><a href= "https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/mar/20/co-living-companies-reinventing-roommates-open-door-common-"> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/mar/20/co-living-companies-reinventing-roommates-open-door-common-</span></a></p> <p>Sun and Co pricing:</p> <p><span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://sun-and-co.com/pricing/</span></p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing  </span></p>

Ep 23: Living Intentionally – What’s it Mean, and How Do You Do It?
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Intentional living has been a primary focus for Kari and Kelly throughout the whole Workationing process – dating back to the very beginning, when they first decided to become digital nomads in the first place. In this episode, the ladies talk about the 5 Ws of living intentionally (which they stole from a journalism club in high school).</span></p> <p>Who is your life right now, and do they belong there? What are you doing, and are you happy about it? When is the right time, if not now (note: there will NEVER be a “right time” to do just about anything). Where do you live, and did you pick that place or just sort of end up there? Add a solid dose of “why” to all of the above, and you’re well on your way to living intentionally.</p> <p>The ladies see intentional living play out in all kinds of different ways, based on what individuals prefer. For example, in ethnically non-monogamous relationships (polyamory, anyone?). Cohousing, sustainable living, intentional communities and ethically sourced food are just some of the benefits of living intentionally. Hell, you can even get your minimalism on – which both Kelly and Kari highly recommend.</p> <p>There’s also a check-in with your Gringas re: how all of this intentional living is working out for them so far. The changes have been noticeable, varied and sometimes unexpected. It’s definitely not all fun!</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing  </span></p>

Ep 22: Floating in an Isolation Tank (Bucket List Item #3)
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Gringas have learned from their mistake in Medellín, and so they decided to front-load their bucket list item for this leg of Workationing: floating in an isolation tank. What’s it like to float in a black box filled with 93.5º water and 850 pounds of Epsom salt? They’ve always wanted to find out, and they tried it...for the full 90 minutes.</span></p> <p>Some people hallucinate while floating in isolation tanks, as if they’re on LSD or magic mushrooms. Other people take strokes off of their golf game, come up with complex mathematical theories or even draft entire sections of books while floating. Joe Rogan swears by these isolation tanks – but what will it be like for Kelly and Kari?</p> <p>The ladies found out first hand, and talk about it during this episode – plus their tips for how to make the most out of your floating experience (should you decide to give it a try yourself). Kari even figured out a way to scam an extra 25 minutes of float time, for free!</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.facebook.com/workationing">www.facebook.com/workationing</a></span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing  </span></p>

Ep 21: The Matt Simon Interview
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">After Medellín, the ladies have questions about drug policy and its impact on Colombia – and they’ve found a man with answers. Matt Simon is the New England Political Director and Policy Analyst for the Marijuana Policy Project, and he came to visit the Gringas for a week in Medellín.</span></p> <p>In this interview, Kari and Kelly ask Matt about drug policy in the United States, and what the ramifications of the international War On Drugs are in places like Colombia. Is there a better way to approach drug policy? If so, what is it and what change(s) will we see?</p> <p>Matt also talks about his experience in Colombia – including what he saw at the gym one day.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing  </span></p>

Ep 20: Kicking Our Bucket Lists
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Coming in hot from a long layover at the Fort Lauderdale Delta Sky Club lounge, the ladies are so relieved to be out of Medellín they’ve decided to refocus on their bucket lists.</span></p> <p>When you start living more intentionally, you find more time to handle the important things – like crossing items off of your bucket list. But before you can do that, you’ve got to figure out what’s on that bucket list in the first place.</p> <p>Kari and Kelly wrote out their bucket lists, and in this episode they talk about all (or many) of the things they really want to do before they die. From going on The Price is Right to jumping off of a yacht into an ocean, a wide variety of weirdness is covered and a lot of it is highly specific.</p> <p>Can you help the Gringas with any of their bucket list items?

Ep 19: Where We Went Wrong (and Right) – Lessons Learned from Medellín
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Gringas made a few mistakes in Medellín, starting before they even arrived. Turns out, the strategies you use to pick a sweet Airbnb in the U.S. are NOT the same that you want to use in Colombia. Kelly and Kari give tips on how to avoid ending up in a filing cabinet full of sex tourists.</span></p> <p>The ladies also talk about confirmation bias in research, and reiterate the importance of checking the byline on travel articles. Also, you might want to make sure you understand the exchange rate before you start spending foreign cash.</p> <p>The most important lesson the ladies learned on this leg of Workationing was to not put off the bucket list items – because you don’t know if (or when) you’ll have another opportunity to cross them off.</p> <p>It wasn’t all bad, though – your Gringas did do some things right, including finding a place with a rooftop pool, in an area packed with other digital nomads. Medellín is what made Kelly and Kari feel like “real” travelers, and if they can make it out of Colombia alive there’s probably nothing they can’t do.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing</span></p>

Ep 17: Local Flavor – Medellín (SPICY)
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The second episode of Medellín’s local flavor kicks the heat up a notch. In this episode, Kari and Kelly talk about sex tourism, “blow powder,” money laundering, drones, scary men in their building, cartels and a lot more.</span></p> <p>The Gringas explain why you always need to get in the front seat of your Uber ride in Medellín, what it’s like to see dozens of teenage prostitutes in their building and whether people with sensitive hearts should come to a place like this.</p> <p>Source links referenced in this episode:</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Blow powder:</span> <a href= "http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2009/10/scopolamine-in-colombia/"><span style="font-weight: 400;"> http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2009/10/scopolamine-in-colombia/</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Virgins for sale:</span> <a href="https://www.channel4.com/news/colombia-medellin-prostitution-virgins-gangs-pablo-escobar"> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://www.channel4.com/news/colombia-medellin-prostitution-virgins-gangs-pablo-escobar</span></a></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">FarInternational:</span><a href= "http://www.farinternational.com/obviously-id-come-for-the-sex/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">http://www.farinternational.com/obviously-id-come-for-the-sex/</span></a></p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.facebook.com/workationing">www.facebook.com/workationing</a></span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing</span></p>

Ep 16: Local Flavor – Medellín (Mild)
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Medellín is a spicy place, and in the next two episodes Kelly and Kari are bringing the heat – starting with mild and building up to burn-your-face-off-and-put-it-in-a-barrel-in-a-chop-shop. The Gringas start off by explaining the constant undertone of misogyny that taints the local flavor of Medellín, then get into the killer style (shoutout to the return of 90s body suits!).</span></p> <p>There are ancient trees growing in the center of gorgeous shopping malls, circus-level entertainment at stoplights and truly amazing food at incredible prices relative to the US. The ladies discuss their favorite (and least favorite) restaurant experiences in town, which include a prom night nightmare and very, very weird bathrooms.</p> <p>The rednecks back home are going to be EXTREMELY interested in hearing about tejo, the national sport of Colombia. Think cornhole, but with explosives and even more drinking. Lawn darts better watch their back, because tejo is coming for their kill count.</p> <p>The Gringas get into why you should always carry more cash than you think you might need, as well as where you can source both Chicklets and cocaine at once.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing</span></p>

Ep 15: The Kate Interview
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Kate Powell is a total badass (she tests virtual reality video games for a living!), and she came to visit the ladies in Medellín for a week. Kate discusses her adventures with starting a nonprofit, spending time in Africa, catching Cholera, bribing state officials and other fun tales of international travel.</span></p> <p>What does Kate think of Medellín, after having spent a full week here? How does it compare to some of the scarier things she’s experienced while traveling? Does “Workationing” work for her, or is it too difficult to do good work while on the road? Is this what a downward spiral looks like, or are we living our best lives here?</p> <p>Special thanks to our dear friend Kate for agreeing to be part of this podcast.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.facebook.com/workationing">www.facebook.com/workationing</a><a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><br /> </a></span> <span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing</span></p>

Ep 14: Finding Fixers in Medellin
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The last two fixers Kari and Kelly had (in the Puerto Rico leg of Workationing) were imported friends from the United States – but how will the ladies find fixers in Colombia? In this episode, Kari and Kelly talk about their two main fixers in Medellín, including how they found the fixers and what these fixers have done for them.</span></p> <p>Mauricio and Santiago saved the day a few times, and are helping keep the ladies safe as they traverse unfamiliar territory in South America. From sourcing mic cords for the podcast rig to supplying sparkling wine (delivered!) for a brunch full of female digital nomads, these gentlemen made life on the road MUCH easier for the Gringas.</p> <p>In several situations, Santiago was particularly helpful – including steering the ladies away from certain danger with a cartel or two, and dropping his dinner plans to come to their rescue at a restaurant.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.facebook.com/workationing">www.facebook.com/workationing</a><a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><br /> </a></span><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing</span></p>

Ep 13: Gringas in Strange Land
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Nearly three months into their Latin American leg of Workationing, Kari and Kelly have learned a thing or two about what it’s like to be Gringas in a strange land. Medellín, Colombia is on a whole different level than Puerto Rico, and the ladies are learning this lesson the hard way.</span></p> <p>The way the women are treated – and treat each other – in Medellín is unlike anything The Gringas are used to. What happens when their white lady privilege gets stripped away, and they go from protected class to gringa status? Nothing good, as it turns out.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.facebook.com/workationing">www.facebook.com/workationing</a><a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><br /> </a></span> <span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing</span></p>

Ep 11: We Made it to Medellín!
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Kari and Kelly have made it to the second leg of Workationing in Medellín, Colombia. They thought they’d solve the problems of the last location by renting an Airbnb in a high rise apartment complex, but that proves to have its own set of risks and complications.</span></p> <p>Somehow, the ladies seem to have landed in the sex tourist skyscraper – and there are a lot of Americans here. Somebody lost a cousin Greg, and needs to come pick him up at the rooftop pool where he’s drunk, banging teenagers and embarrassing your family.</p> <p>The views are amazing and the city is gorgeous, but there’s a lot going on under the surface. A week into this segment of Workationing, the ladies have learned all kinds of new things about money laundering, chop shops, surgeons and Tindering in cartel country.</p> <p>A few days into the Medellín stay, the girls get spooked by a fairly threatening man and hole up in their apartment for several days. It’s not all scary and bad, though. The digital nomad community in Medellín is up and popping, the views are incredible and the food is absolutely out of this world...if you can stay alive long enough to eat it.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing</span></p>

Ep 10: Iguana in Aguada: The Fixer Interview
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Kari and Kelly have talked a lot about fixers, and their value on the road – and in this episode, they interview William, their first fixer. William is the king of the grift, and he talks about how you can find money anywhere...even in the trees.</span></p> <p>Speaking of trees, William is the one who introduced the ladies to the term “chicken of the trees,” which is what some Puerto Rican locals are trying to rebrand iguana meat as. William talks about how he found the people who sell iguana meat, and how he’s discovered the potential business opportunity in catching and selling live iguanas.</p> <p>Iguanas aren’t the only thing William was after in Puerto Rico, though. He also was able to free dive for conch and octopus (octopuses?), and teach the ladies a thing or two about making money on the road.</p> <p>What’s it like to be a fixer for Kari and Kelly? What’s the best grift William’s ever run?

Ep 9: The Yarlap (AKA: the Gift That Keeps on Giving)
<p>This is a special episode for the ladies, and the people who love them. The Yarlap is a medical device that strengthens the pelvic floor, and in addition to helping to cure urinary incontinence it may or may not result in some of the best orgasms in your life. The ladies had never seen a contraption like this before, and you probably haven’t either.</p> <p>Before leaving for Workation Kari was given TWO Yarlaps by [REDACTED], one for her and one for Kelly. This episode was originally part of Ep 3 (We Made it to Aguada!), but was edited out because it was a little...off topic and risque.</p> <p>After sharing info about the Yarlap around, however, K&K received so much feedback from their female friends who claim to NEED this device, it was decided this Yarlap episode should see the light of day after all.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">If you’d like more information about the Yarlap, or to purchase one, visit</span> <a href= "http://www.yarlap.com"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.yarlap.com</span></a></p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/workationing"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">www.facebook.com/workationing</span></a></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing</span></p>

Ep 8: The Uncle Tom Letter
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Workationing Facebook page (facebook.com/workationing – check it out!) received a message from Kelly’s uncle, Tom. Uncle Tom is a very seasoned traveler, and has some advice for the ladies as they work their way around the world.</span></p> <p>Items up for discussion in this episode: how recognizing others being judgey can help keep you safe, how there’s no way for Kelly and Kari to really blend in (but they should keep trying anyway), and how being American in another country is generally not a good thing.</p> <p>Uncle Tom also underscores the importance of finding fixers while out on the road, because these are the people who can help you the most. It’s important that your fixer likes you, and somebody who may be presenting themselves as a fixer might actually be a scammer. So, there’s a lot to watch out for.</p> <p>This is further complicated by the fact that, according to Uncle Tom, Kari and Kelly’s “sketch radar” is not calibrated. The ladies agree with this, and discuss how to better tune their sketch radar – but it can be extremely difficult when you don’t even know what the hell you’re looking at. Most of the time, Kelly and Kari really don’t know.</p> <p>This ep concludes with a fun story about how Kari almost got the Workationing crew killed by giving a Colombian woman a compliment.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out www.workationing.com.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Follow us on Facebook:</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://www.facebook.com/workationing">www.facebook.com/workationing</a></span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And Twitter: www.twitter.com/workationing</span></p>

Ep 7: The Angela Keaton Interview
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Angela Keaton of AntiWar.com comes to visit Kelly and Kari in Aguada, and shares some stories of her own travels. There are bike rodeos, sex hotels, road trips to Canada, run ins with Portuguese law enforcement, and weird foods that may or may not be accompanied by creamy sauces.</span></p> <p>Angela also gets into what it’s like to travel alone and how she learned to trust her gut when it comes to personal safety. Sometimes, being polite and rational can be dangerous!</p> <p>Now that she’s spent a full week with us on Workation, what’s Angela think of what we’re doing here? Does workationing actually work for her? Is this what a downward spiral looks like, or are we living our best lives here? And what did she think of swimming in the bio bay?</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Special thanks to Angela Keaton for agreeing to be part of this podcast.

Ep 6: Where We Went Wrong (and Right) – Lessons Learned from the Road
<p>Kelly and Kari have learned A LOT on this leg of Workation – including the fact that they made a lot of mistakes along the way and didn’t realize it until it was almost too late. Did they witness a gang fight on horses? How safe were they, actually, in Puerto Rico?</p> <p>The ladies learned the hard way that you should always Google street view not just the outside of your Airbnb, but also where you’ll be walking regularly. What do those “steps to the beach” look like, and how many wild dogs will you encounter on your trek? More best practices and tips for finding safe and enjoyable Airbnbs are covered, as well.</p> <p>Kelly tells a horrifying story about getting into a sketchy Uber, and what that taught her about getting out of bad situations before they get worse. Despite all of the mistakes that Kelly and Kari made on this leg of the trip, they did do some things right – including hitting their personal and professional goals, and knocking out a bucket list item.</p> <p>That bucket list item, by the way, is swimming in one of the only bioluminescent bays in the world. Kari and Kelly talk about what it was like to swim in water that twinkled and glowed around them, and give helpful advice on how to have the best bio bay experience (and who to call!).</p> <p>More info about the bio bay, what it was like, and how to experience it the max can be viewed at this blog post: <a title= "http://workationing.com/puerto-rico-bioluminescent-bay/" href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fworkationing.com%2Fpuerto-rico-bioluminescent-bay%2F" target="_blank" rel= "nofollow">workationing.com/puerto-rico-bioluminescent-bay/</a></p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out <a title= "http://www.workationing.com" href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.workationing.com" target= "_blank" rel="nofollow">www.workationing.com</a>.</p> <p>Follow us on Facebook: <a title= "http://www.facebook.com/workationing" href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fworkationing" target="_blank" rel= "nofollow">www.facebook.com/workationing</a><br /> And Twitter: <a title="http://www.twitter.com/workationing" href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.twitter.com%2Fworkationing" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">www.twitter.com/workationing</a></p>

Ep 5: Technical Difficulties and Travel Hacks
<p>It’s said that necessity is the mother of invention, and in this episode Kari and Kelly talk about the travel hacks they gave birth to on the road.

What’s the best way to take a conference call when there’s a loud-ass street festival right outside your window?</p> <p>From podcast problems to shower stall business meetings, Kari and Kelly talk about all of the technical difficulties they’ve encountered over the month they spent in Puerto Rico – and how they hacked their way to solutions.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out <a title= "http://www.workationing.com" href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.workationing.com" target= "_blank" rel="nofollow">www.workationing.com</a>.</p> <p>Follow us on Facebook: <a title= "http://www.facebook.com/workationing" href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fworkationing" target="_blank" rel= "nofollow">www.facebook.com/workationing</a><br /> And Twitter: <a title="http://www.twitter.com/workationing" href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.twitter.com%2Fworkationing" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">www.twitter.com/workationing</a></p>

Ep 4: Local Flavor: The Puerto Rico Edition
<p>Kari and Kelly talk about the culture, vibe and food in Augada. Do you know what “chicken of the trees” is? The answer to that question is horrifying, and costs $18 per pound. Plantains are everywhere, and they’re mostly fried. Kelly tries her first beach coconut, Kari encounters free-range horses and donkeys at the track. Riding your horse to the convenience store is absolutely a thing out here, as are HUGE stereo systems on the rooftops of cars.</p> <p>To follow along in real time, see video/pics of the process, get Workationing tips and travel hacks, check out <a title= "http://www.workationing.com" href= "https://exit.sc/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.workationing.com" target= "_blank" rel="nofollow">www.workationing.com</a>.</p>

What dead parents can teach you about living fearlessly and intentionally. The four rules of workationing: making more than you earn, traveling light, accomplishing goals and spreading good travel karma.
