How we Spent our Summer (and fall) Vacation
Today we’re going to catch you up on all the things that happened since our last show in May.
We’ll chat about:
– Updates on our Portugal house
–  The 15 countries we visited
– Getting sick abroad
…and what you’ve been up to.
Watch the whole video for all of the rambling fun conversation. And please! Let me know what travel topics you want me to discuss below in the comments!

Who am I? I’m Juliana Dever, an experiential travel expert.

I’ve been traveling the world for 25 years, I’ve visited over 60 countries, lived in 4, and spend about 4 months abroad every year traveling deeper into my favorite countries so I can bring you all the insider information and help you take off-the-beaten-path adventures!

I also work with women in Central Europe to create and curate small group Cultural Immersion Trips to their countries which directly support local female and family-owned businesses. Come with me in 2023 – we’re going to Slovenia for 10 days or on a Christmas market tour to Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. Get all the details below.

Hi. I’m Juliana Dever and according to science I have some sort of "exploration" gene. Embracing this compulsion, I spend a lot of time hurtling around the planet in metal tubes experiencing other cultures and writing humorous essays about it. Enjoy.

    Hi Juliana!
    Thanks for sending the replay (still off FB!! : )
    Would love to know about traveling with you as a vegan.. Guessing its different
    in various places, but love a bit of overall info!

    Still trying to figure out how I can travel with you guys… Until I can find a pet-sitter
    that I absolutely love and trust – my pups are my life (divorced and no 2-legged kids so they are everything), working on finding someone soon!

    Anyway thanks for sending the replay… Happy TG!
    Lisa from Marin!

    • Hi there Lisa! I totally understand about the furkids – believe me. My dogs are everything too. We’ve been lucky to have a few trusted friends stay with them at the house, and one home that does a great job of keeping them safe if they need to be boarded.

      Traveling as a vegan on my tours is fine. My guides are able to work with all restaurants we stop at so you always have something to eat. It can be different at different restaurants (and countries) for sure, but you’ll never starve!
