Final Road Trip OF THE YEAR! + 2020 Travel Plans Update & Whiskey Tasting 🥃


There, that last swipe, I swiped a whole chunk into my leg hole. So cold! Yes my knee hole. Wow. There’s so much snow in my pants Good morning adventurers. Good morning! So it snowed last night. (laughs) Yeah a lot. It’s nice and light and powdery. So hopefully it’s not too icy out there. It’s actually awesome snow I want to go sledding so bad. But we can’t because we have a road trip to get to our final road trip of 2019 actually It’s happening, heading back down south, leave it all this in our desk. Although I’m sure it’ll follow us down there. It looks like pretty easy driving conditions. I don’t see too much ice or anything like that It’s just really powdery snow and it’s kind of melted on the roads out there So I think we should be okay. If you missed our last video we did a little food tour here in Buffalo And then now we are going to take a road trip down to Nashville where we left our car We haven’t really planned this out or anything. We’re just uh – We’re just going. Keep going. Yeah, we haven’t booked a place for tonight or anything. (laughs) We don’t know where we’re gonna stay, how far we’re gonna get, we’re just gonna drive Road trip! Whoo! Obviously though the first stop will be coffee. Is this a bad idea? [Both]: No! I didn’t mean to go all the way down. Idiot. All right road trip We made it to this cafe and check out all the names of all their sandwiches this is the McKinley and Fun fact: McKinley was present during the 1901 fair that I mentioned in yesterday’s video and he was assassinated during that fair. Now you know! These sandwiches are super unique here I can’t decide I’m leaning towards the Luigi Salami Piled High Green Peppers House-made espresso infused ricotta cheese and house-made apricot spread sounds super unique what I mean [Eric]: Sounds super unique What?! I mean we ate doughnuts and hot wings and a roast beef sandwich yesterday So should I be bad? I don’t know. Probably. The coffee here turns out is amazing. I’m enjoying it quite a bit. Yes. We also got a couple sandwiches I ended up keeping it pretty simple with a bagel sandwich, but it has some Chipotle apricot spread on there Which is why I picked it. It sounds pretty interesting. I got the Teddy Roosevelt. It is pulled chickens There’s spicy coleslaw on there there. Sounds like Frank’s redhot goat cheese I think honey Teddy Grahams or Preston there somehow? Okay. I panic last minute. Eric was getting very impatient with me so I just said “I’ll do this one.” [Eric]: I’m so hungry. [Eric]: That’s a whole lot of sandwich right there. Hmm, really sweet, actually. Sweeter than it is spicy and a little tangy. Oh, look. There’s a little tiny grim hanging out. I think that might be the culprit Teddy Grahams are a little sweet on there But the coleslaw is nice, it’s really tangy. You can taste the goat cheese Contains it all and it’s Really good together surprisingly. [Eric]: So we’ll save being healthy for tomorrow, I guess. Apparently. I did workout this morning. Is that good? [Eric]: It’s salad from here on out, dang it. [Eric]: Back on the road. We turned off on to some smaller side roads because we really wanted to go to a Christmas tree farm Maybe get a photo or something, but the roads look a little worse out here So we turn down one road that looked pretty bad. Yeah, and we’re at our tiny home in the Hudson Valley I don’t know if we told you guys but we kind of got the car stuck I mean we got it out, but the driveway was really icy We don’t want to repeat that so I’m just gonna take it slow, and be right on back to the highway On the plus side. We are really enjoying this drive. It is beautiful back on these country roads Trying to just set the camera on the dash for a shot here It’s a level. I don’t know whatever Probably looks good, it’s gonna have to work. Well, we have a long way to go on this highway. So It is the end of the year for us. It’s already the new year for you guys. We all made it! Yes, if you’re seeing this, we made it. We did it But we figured It might be a good opportunity to give you guys a little update on our travel plans for the new year The moment you guys have all been waiting for – where are we going in 2020? [Drum Roll] We have no idea. We haven’t booked a single thing. We have no idea All we know is that we both have jury duty The beginning of January. I don’t if we’ve said that yet, but that’s kind of getting in the way…. we’re Texas residents We don’t actually live there, but we got selected for jury duty And it’s a whole process putting it off You have to talk to the judge and like we figure it’s gonna get us one way or another eventually So why not just take a quick road trip down at the beginning of the year get it sorted, hopefully do not get selected That’s our first real travel plan. Let’s go to Texas for jury duty We have a lot of places we want to go to but what we wanted to do was ask you guys if you had any cool places in mind that you wanted to see us go to or which place do you want us to go to the most Or you went to a really cool place this past year That you thought was out of this world that we should go visit. Let us know! But as far as the places we want to hit up we haven’t been to Africa yet So that’s for sure on our list for next year. We really want to take a trip to Russia with our friend Nikita Who is Russian Been planning that for years, haven’t done it. Should happen finally this year He’s got a little baby, him and Karina, and they’re gonna go meet his family so I think we’re gonna hop on board with that trip There’s still some Southeast Asian countries – Taiwan – that we haven’t been to. Yeah, probably South Korea we’d like to get to. We really want to hit some really new places maybe more in South America Because we’ve only been to Colombia down there We loved it. So if you guys have any really cool Experiences that you really want to see us do or super unique things that you’ve done that we should try out or really unique places to stay It’s completely open-ended for us. Yes. Yeah Hopefully we’ll be doing some pretty epic travels next year. Or this year? This – yeah. This year, next year. Same thing for you guys. Okay, but that’s all that’s all I have to say. So you have anything else? Back on the road We finally managed to keep it healthy during a road trip Kinda healthy. Although we did get noodles, but they’re not that unhealthy, right? [Eric]: Hmm-mmm. Also, I’m filming right now on our new iPhones. I haven’t really filmed anything yet So we’ll see if it’s any good. But this is a noodle place where you get to just pick your base We got some noodles down in there [Allison]: the japjae noodles. Yeah, and then we we basically got the same thing but some kale, cabbage, eggs, some daikon over there, carrots Oh my god. I got some chicken. She decided to keep the vegetarian Vegetarian tonight. So we’re gonna down this and then we’ve got – we actually got a hotel Eric just booked it. Couple hours away. I think yeah, so give me the energy I need to get us down there I totally forgot we haven’t told you why we have a charger. We didn’t actually just pick this out. Yeah, we did. This is our dream car you guys, and we bought it! [Eric]: No! We got into our first vehicle, our first rental and it smelled like all the weed It was really intense Like we couldn’t even breathe in there But you know like cool whatever but we just didn’t want to smell of it the whole trip So they upgraded us to this bad boy. I don’t know how I feel about it still it goes real fast Yeah, it makes so much dang noise [Engine Starting] [Eric]: It’s been doing pretty good in the snow too Yeah, actually it’s been doing a really great job. I’m impressed. And it’s a nice smooth ride. [Eric]: It’s freezing out here. It is, really. It’s in the 20’s you guys I hate it!
[Eric]: Let’s go. [Eric]: Uh-huh [Eric]: Home sweet home for the night. It’s just beautiful Welcome to the Microtel Inn & Suites. This is what a last-minute booking looks like (laughs) For what, 50 USD? [Eric]: It’s really not that bad it looks pretty clean It looks kinda futuristic with that mirror back there. It looks like a two-way mirror like someone’s watching us on the other side. I’m not a fan of that. We’ve got the essentials that we brought to the hotel room giant bag of popcorn Some tea, we got an extra one to bring with us from the restaurant we ate at. We got some delicious Alcohol when we went to angry or sorry what did I say? [Eric]: Alcohol. It is alcohol! But some cider when we went to Angry Orchard, we got the one that we really liked – Baldwin. If you go there, we really enjoyed it. The cutest little four pack of…where is it? There. Wooden Sleeper. Which is aged whiskey barrel. [Eric]: It was super delicious. Yeah, but we’ve been traveling with them and it’s been getting way below freezing every night We’re scared to leave them out in the car. So every hotel or AirBnb we go into we have to take all of our Liquor or alcohol. We did manage to get the TV to work And Polar Express is on which is one of my favorite Christmas movies. I’ve already – this will be the second time I’ve watched it this year. That’s okay. You can never watch it too much. But I think that’s gonna do it for today We are going to hit the hay stayed up way too late, but I guess we can sleep in tomorrow. So we’re good Yeah, we got an easy drive should only be like three hours tomorrow easy-peasy Now it’s bedtime because I feel like I can’t talk straight (laughs) See you tomorrow Good morning, everybody. We’re back on the road. All the snow is gone. So sad! Yeah, now everything’s just brown and cold. Kind of ugly-looking. But that’s alright. We actually stopped in Louisville, Kentucky last night Which I don’t think we mentioned but we’re making our way down south through Kentucky along some part of the Bourbon trail Which if you’re not familiar with that obviously bourbon is huge in, Kentucky and there’s a trail that you can go through and stop at tons of Distilleries you can kind of actually make your own route I don’t think it’s just like one road but we’ve always driven through it and never actually went to any of the distilleries But we found one that’s on the way right before we leave, Kentucky. So we might stop there and just do a little tasting Yes, and I need One last Christmas present so I think I’m gonna purchase it there Startin off with just water just kidding. This is a very potent clear whiskey 91 proof [Eric]: Have you ever had clear whiskey? I don’t think so. [Eric]: Maybe once at a cheap bar. That’s surprisingly smooth it does have notes of tequila I can see that there So the reason this is clear is because this never goes into the barrel, right? Yeah, so there you go So this is basically the same whiskey as the clear whiskey except this was aged in the barrel for two years, right? It has to be two years to call it straight bourbon case In case you don’t know what classifies something is bourbon a couple of the rules anyway: It has to be made in America and it has to be at least 51% corn And it also has to be aged in the barrels. So technically in a charred new oak barrel, right? So technically the clear stuff isn’t bourbon, but it is still whiskey It is very nice, it’s crazy how much more of like a sweet smell that you get from this one than the clear one, but Tastes really good. [Allison]: This one’s the one I’m most excited about. It’s their apple pie So this is a little less potent, but still what fifty proof. You’re saying it should be a little less sweet than other maybe apple pie moonshine that we’ve had before [Eric]: Just probably good for us That just tastes like the fall or winter vibes You want to be by your fire drinking that. That’s great. That is pleasant. It’s really not overly sweet at all. It’s really something that’s great It’s good by itself. Well that was a lovely little detour And for those of you wondering I only had the tiniest sip of I don’t even know if I tried all of them So Eric’s probably feeling a little good right now. It wasn’t really enough to get you too buzzed. It was a nice little stop. It was a lot of fun so if you come through obviously there are all sorts of distilleries some more known than others But it’s fun going into the little ones and hearing their story of how they got started [Eric]: Which one is unlock? Nice one, so we made it to Nashville. I just dropped off the car Reluctantly. Yeah, we had to split up to the airport That’s okay, I miss this little guy, the smell that’s familiar Not good, but familiar Boy, we have really downgraded. Driving that car, I forgot how crappy this car of ours actually is. It makes a lot of noises. It’s a Lyman. It’s very off, got a lot of broken items But she still runs. Also you might have noticed. I’m actually driving for once I don’t know why but people comment a lot about why I don’t drive I don’t know why it matters so much but there’s actually a really good reason for that Allison’s really not that comfortable filming and I get a little Antsy when she’s filming I’m trying to drive anyway, so we’ve tried it the best it doesn’t work It also cost more to add drivers when you rent a car. Well since we’re not filming the rest of the day and we’re in my car. I’m driving now I miss driving actually to be honest. I never get to drive because we’re always in other countries. He was really sad that he didn’t get to drive our charger because you know the Beast of the car That’s gonna do it for our final road trip of 2019 2020, baby, yeah! Oh, alright, this is over Goodnight adventurers. We’ll see you on the road.

  1. Where should we travel to in 2020?? Leave a comment and let us know! Also, you can pick up your very own reusable travel mugs like ours on Amazon! https://amzn.to/2Fg7kCz and https://amzn.to/2MP3BQI
    Disclaimer: These are affiliate links

  2. I have been following your channel for over 2 years now I guess and, hands down the best travel channel out there because guys you always keep it real: when it is cool it is cool and when it is not so cool (ex: places closed) still you mention it lol. When I or my friends visit any of the places you go to I always watch your vids for recommendations and also send the link to my friends. I want to go to Jerusalem/dead sea but, I believe you guys haven't been there. That would be my suggestion for 2020. Keep the vids coming and traveling!!!!!

  3. Guys, try Brazil…but go to the South! Some cities really, really amazing that nobody knows: Blumenau (one of the biggest Oktoberfest in the world), Serras Gauchas area ( Cities: Gramado, Canela, Garibaldi, Bento Goncalves). There's a very nice short trip of train : https://mariafumaca.tur.br/ and the city of Florianopolis in the state of Santa Catarina. 1:30h from Sao Paulo there's a city called Holambra (Holand + Brazil), it's a Dutch city and the capital of the flowers. Hope you go to the south of Brazil! There's Foz do Iguacu / Iguazu Falls (https://cataratasdoiguacu.com.br) then, Argentina with the beautiful Buenos Aires and Mendoza! All the best and happy 2020!

  4. You guys, please come to Bulgaria! We have beautiful mountains and sea, amazing food and so much culture to explore! You will love it 🙂

  5. Thank you so much for taking us along for your awesome adventures! I’m in bed with fractures in my back (and some other more minor injuries). So. It brings some joy and fun (and needed distraction) into my life. 😀😘

  6. Hey Alison love your backpack the brown one where did you get it? Looking for a similar one in black. 😍

  7. Would you get in trouble with the law if you drove off with a deep layer of snow on the roof of your car? You would in the UK these days – police may pull you over before the tectonic plate of snow dislodges and hits everyone behind!

  8. 5:00 Eric in a skimpy T shirt and Allison in woolly coat and hat! Does your car have different climate zones? 😄

  9. I would love to visit the Panama canal, be great if you two did that, also the trans Siberian Express train. South Africa. And the middle east, but maybe let that place settle down a bit first lol

  10. Try the Atlantic islands! I can recommend Spain’s Canary Islands, just west of Africa, for their volcanic features, temperate in each north; more barren in the south. You can fly over to Morocco as a footstep to Africa?
    Hopscotch he Greek islands too: some are lush with the smells of olive and pine; others rocky with thousands of years of Mediterranean history.

  11. I just came back from South Africa and I 100% recommend : LOVED it!!! (PS: the coffee is amazing and I have some great food recommendations 😉 )

  12. Australia …once the fires stop people will need your money to get back on their feet…travel around Australia and bring money to give back to the community’s

    It sounds rude but it’s what’s needed

  13. I took a ferry trip from Bergen up the Norwegian coast to Kirkenes with a company called Hurtigruten- it was a fantastic 5 day trip stopping at many interesting ports on the way with two sightings of the Northern Lights thrown in as we cruised up over the Arctic Circle. It's an amazing experience and I'm sure if you ask the good people at Hurtigruten nicely they may give you a favourable deal!! Between now and the end of March is probably the best time to go to ensure seeing the Northern Lights and lots and lots of snow and other on-shore related activities (eg sled riding with huskies, snow scooting, ice hotel visits, trip over the border to Russia etc etc!!).

  14. If you decide to come to South Korea, you should go to Busan and try raw octopus (산낙지 – sannakji) . It’s a famous Korean dish that can only be found in Korean. It would also make for an interesting video, because it can be difficult to eat as it moves around in your mouth. Depending on the time of year that you come, there are many seasonal snacks. If you come in the fall or winter months definitely try (호떡 – hodeok). It a small pancake pan fried in butter filled with sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes nuts. When it is fried, the sugar turns into a caramel. It’s delicious! There is so much to do and see here in South Korea. Definitely don’t stay in just one city if you come, because each city has it’s own unique cuisine, feeling, and attractions. ☺️

  15. Lmao I knew you were in Louisville just from the papa johns room key. 😂 I worked at a hotel in Louisville and they had the same exact keys.

  16. I’d love to see you go more out of your comfort zone, a bit more rural. India, Bhutan, somewhere a bit more testing and more about the culture than the food

  17. Please go to China!! And not Beijing/Shanghai, how about more out of the way cities like Chongqing (mountain city), Guilin rice terraces and Xian (terracotta warriors).

    And Yorkshire, UK 😀

  18. Connect with Cup of TJ for Taiwan 🇹🇼. She is there a lot and have great places to eat street food, breakfast, restaurants, etc

  19. In November I went to the Silecia region I Poland, more specifically Gliwice and Katowice, for an event called Junior Eurovision. I unfortunately didn't have time to see much of it as I was there as press, but what I saw of especially Katowice was very nice. A cute little polish region with German influence that's worth a visit if you're going to Europe in 2020. I don't think many people know about it, but I think it's worth to explore

  20. As I'm English I feel I should say ENGLAND!!!!, but I would love to see where Nikita grew up plus the new addition to his family (all babys are ssooooooo cute!!!). The last time I saw Russia was on The Long Way Round with Ewan McGregor & Charlie Boorman and it was Amazing. Beautiful Country, such friendly people. Another big plus, on the border is Mongolia. If there is one country I want to see before I die it is Mongolia. The beauty of their land is on another level, Ewan & Charlie will confirm this.

  21. Anywhere in South Africa or South America would be great for you guys if you haven't been before… Peru and Ecuador are both terrific, as are South Africa, Botswana and Namibia; sure you would love them all – and you could combine countries into one long trip there for sure. If you are in South Africa in February I'll look out for you! Other than that… we did St Lucia last year for the first time and it was very nice – and there's always more to see in the UK of course! Happy New Year and Happy Adventures!!!

  22. You just gotta go to Cambodia. The temples are amazing, the food is fantastic and the people are lovely. Everything there is inexpensive too. When /if you get back to the UK, take a trip east to Colchester, Britain's oldest recorded town with a great roman history and home of Boudicca warrior Queen.

  23. Another great video! I'm only disappointed that you didn't have room in the car for one of those dinosaurs. Deeley The Cat and I were talking about where you should go during 2020 and… well, it's not super out of your comfort zones – but when you're back in the UK area you should make a trip to The Channel Islands (Guernsey/Jersey/Alderney-one of those or all). They're in The English Channel (surprise! surprise!) and are a little bit British, a little bit French and a little bit their own thing; but wherever you end up it'll be fantastic! 🙂

  24. Come to Mackinac Island, Michigan! There are no cars allowed on the island. Everyone gets around on horses and bikes. Its absolutely beautiful!

  25. I would like to see you do a luxury cruise of the Mediterranean or Micronisia, spending enough time to really explore the places you visit, going a little more deeply into things besides food.

  26. Come to Brazil, but don’t visit only the usual spots, like Rio and São Paulo…we have amazing beaches in Paraíba, for example, and amazing waterfalls and rivers in Bonito/Mato Grosso do Sul and Chapada dos Veadeiros. Look them up!

  27. I'd love to see ye guys in Africa. Thanks for making awesome videos in 2019. Looking forward to more adventures in 2020.

  28. I'd be interested in a ballpark figure of what it costs to travel for a year? I guess there are a ton of variables… $100 a day? Do you get breaks on your airfare? I would think that would add up. I like your series and your channel..been following for awhile.. My suggestion for travel? somewhere warm…

  29. A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's to you kids! I'm just catching up to your latest adventures because I was on a road trip of my own – a visit to my home town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to see relatives and friends. Today I am in the Kansas City area getting rested and ready to head home to Texas on Tuesday morning. I highly recommend one of your travels during 2020 to be the state of Wisconsin and the City of Milwaukee – during the summer, that is. I may be biased, but I think that Milwaukee has the best bakeries in the U.S., especially the best donuts. While I know you enjoyed upstate New York, I myself will not be buffaloed into visiting there in the dead of winter (lol!).

    If you are in Texas now awaiting jury duty, just understand that unless you have a legally valid excuse, you will not be excused simply because you are the Endless Adventurers. Take it from someone like me who is a longtime Texas resident, retired Texas attorney, and attendee of several jury panels myself over the years. But if you need a character reference, I will be happy to vouch for all of your wonderful travels around the world. Lol! I don't know where in Texas you reside, but if you are still going to be in Texas, especially the Dallas/Fort Worth area, after January 8, I would certainly like to meet you and compare travel notes!

    P..S Loved your dance partner, Allison, from the previous video. Also loved the cameo appearance of my favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers, during your visit to the Anchor Bar in Buffalo.

  30. Wow i want experince snow😊😊..MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE PHILIPPINES..GOD BLESS FOR JOURNEY GUYS❤💥💥💥

  31. I laughed so hard when you showed the Ohio sign and then next Kentucky and you stopped in Kentucky. Totaalllly understand! (I live in Ohio, sadly) Scotland, Northern Ireland, France (all of it), Portugal. More of Greece! Happy New Year!

  32. very nice video , thanks for sharing with us , i subd you if you like add me back , thanks a lot and happy new year !!!

  33. You should go to Israel. Amazing country, amazing people and amazing food like Shakshuka, Sabich, Hummus, Kebab….

  34. i saw this and thought this would be Unique for you guys staying in a lighthouse in cornwall england https://www.bookalighthouse.com/rentals/truro-england-uk-sally-port-cottage-82

  35. New subscriber from Taiwan! If you need any info or a guide when you are here, please contact me. I love your style.

  36. Have you guys been to Ukraine? I am actually not from Ukraine, but Belgian. But I do live here, in Odessa. A beautiful city, and if you decide to visit, it would be great to meet you. Best time would be Spring or Summer 🙂

  37. You should go to madeira island! Beautiful mountains and charming little towns.
    https://thisismadeiraisland.com/2020/01/08/places-to-visit-in-madeira/

  38. You drove right past my house in Ohio! Wish we could have arranged for a meet up. Right now we are on our own adventure spending a month in London! We used a lot of your trip to London to inspire us while we are here. Thanks for the great videos.

  39. He he…love this!
    Whiskey distilleries visits for tasting and then hop in the car and drive! No problemo… 😉
    ……………………Yeay!!!

  40. I think you guys should do The Way Of Saint James. I think you guys would enjoy this. You dont have to do the entire 500 miles. But you can choose which part to walk and visit all the historical sites along the way and eat amazing food. I haven't seen a lot of youtubers do this. At least not the ones I follow.

  41. Just another suggestion if you find yourselves in the UK in the Spring/summer but in the South or London area you could consider a few days on the Isle of Wight.
    Easy access from London to Portsmouth Harbour station and a few minutes walk to the catamaran ferry to Ryde Pier and then a small train can take you down the coast or you could stay in Ryde and get a bus pass all over the island.
    Lots of nice beaches and walks with plenty of attractions to see over a few days without much travelling in between.
    You can take a car Ferry from Portsmouth or Southampton as well but it's not particularly cheap for such a short distance so only really worth it if stopping for up to a week.

  42. Russia sounds great, i'd also like to see you visit Hungary and Armenia. And, Please, if you come back to the UK, please visit during Springtime or Summer, North Yorkshire and Northumbria are beautiful places.
