Podcast 4: South Africa: A Guys’ Trip Heaven (Couples Welcome too)

Podcast Episode 4

Traveling back to South Africa for the second time in only two years was Nikki’s idea but it became Matt’s playground as they hiked the mountains, went to a safari, enjoyed the braai feasts, swam in the ocean, and went to a rugby match. Deep sea fishing and being part of a shark catch was icing on the cake! Matt makes the case that this is a guys’ trip heaven in this episode that describes their three months in several cities along the coast. They also answer a listener question about what they have learned about themselves and each other during their travel. Enjoy as they continue to open up on their journey so far.

South Africa – What We Loved

Q & A – What have we learned about ourselves and each other

Our prize for this podcast comes from Mizzen+Main. I only have two pairs of pants with me during our travels so I had to make sure they were comfortable, stylish, and versatile. My grey and blue Mizzen+Main pants have allowed we to trek up the mountains in Chile and walk through the halls of St. Peters in the Vatican. They are the only pants I need to for all of my traveling adventures. When you see me wearing pants in my photos, I am wearing Mizzen+Main. Check out to see their latest styles.
