10 Awesome Podcasts I Listen To While I Travel


As much as I love listening to music (and singing along to it!), sometimes I want to listen to something else. It's funny, I'm not a huge fan of audiobooks since I like to create the character's voices and tones in my mind but I'll listen to podcasts. Am I the only one that feels that way, or just loves the feel of a book in your hand? Since I travel so much, a lot of people ask me what I do, "other than listen to music or read books" and my answer? Podcasts.

I've been listening to podcasts for a few years now and even co-hosted a baseball podcast way before podcasts were cool. Of course if you've been following along for a while, I now have my own podcast which we'll get to in a bit! Here's 10 podcasts that I enjoy listening to that aren't necessarily related to travel that you may enjoy!

Featured Friends: Sylvia from Sylvia G Eatery

Sylvia G Eatery Interview - Life in Wanderlust

Sylvia from Sylvia G Eatery is my very first Featured Friend of 2018 and I couldn't be happier about it. I was looking through my Instagram notification feed and saw that she was following along, so I went to her page and was instantly hooked! I've probably watched all of her YouTube videos at this point and her Instagram feed is #goals. She's a foodie, photographer and YouTuber that you're going to want to get to know!

Top 10 Amazon Travel Products You Need

10 Best Amazon Travel Products

I'm most definitely a typical Millennial in that I order everything from Amazon. Or is that everyone? Well either way, we all know you can pretty much find everything you need in life from Amazon whether it's dog poop bags, bar stools or Trump wigs. I'm especially a big fan of Amazon's own line, AmazonBasics. It's cheap, great quality and ships immediately.

Of course as a Travel Blogger, I've done my fair share of trying out travel accessories from Amazon. Some of them were a huge waste of money but these 10 items have changed my travel life for the better. I was inspired by all the "Amazon Must Buys" Youtube videos and decided to share my tried and true Amazon travel products with you!

Podcast Episode 03: Hotel Story Time #1 feat. Brooke!

Life in Wanderlust Podcast Hotel Story Time

All of my podcast episodes so far, I've put a lot of love and effort into. But this one especially excites me to share with all of you! If you listened to Episode 0, I discuss wanting to share my crazy experiences in the hospitality business with the world and in today's podcast, I GET TO! Not only that, I get to tell these stories with a special guest and one of my best friends and former colleague, Brooke!

We talk about me getting fired by Mr. Hilton himself, Brooke's encounter with an angry wife in slippers and a handsome man who's haunted by his demon.

Checking In: Marriott Portland Downtown Waterfront

Marriott Downtown Portland Waterfront Review
The Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront graciously offered me a special rate for this stay. However, all opinions are as always, my own.

Want to know a funny fact about the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront to start off this post? Well, when I was trying to get into the hospitality business after getting tired of high fashion retail, I applied to this hotel a couple of times. I got rejected....multiple times, ha! It's ok though and absolutely no hard feelings! I was hired by the Marriott down the street by the water and ended up having a great relationship with the sales team at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront.

If you couldn't figure it out from that or you don't know much about me, I used to live in Portland for about 4 years total. I love the city and when I moved to Los Angeles, I left a fabulous city and a ton of my close friends up there. So naturally, I visit Portland 1-2 times a year. This isn't the first time I've stayed at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront nor is it the first time I've written about them! But it is the first time I've dedicated a post to them on my Checking In series. Why? Because it's worth trying to convince you to stay there!
