After watching Matt and Amie of The Traveling Together Journal on their YouTube channel for several months, it was an honor to have them join us on the Podcast! The Traveling Together Journal is probably a chanel you’ve either subscribed to, or one you’ll want to go check out. After a wonderful love story; of meeting in Nicaragua, Amie and Matt moved to Maui for 3 years, got married, flew back to California and embarked on an overland trip in 2016 from California, through Baja, to Panama, then back to California. Listen in as we enjoy their overlanding stories, learn from their experiences and understand the importance of a good awning! Listen carfull and you will even hear their dog Jaeger snoring through part 2 :)
