Once again, Underwhelmed proves to be your best source for travel recommendations, tips, and tricks. This week Nicole shares the details of her recent trip to London and Christie isn’t shy to chime in with her tips from the time she spent in London a mere 15 years ago. Topics of their in-depth discussion include: London’s Traffic, The London Eye, Red Eye Flights, Tower Bridge, The Tower of London, Big Ben, Hop On Hop Off Bus, Changing of the Royal Guards, Sparking Water, Airport Lounges, Airport Shopping, the London Heat Wave, Buckingham Palace, High Tea, and Harrods.
Last month Christie and Nicole attempted to have a discussion about what they wish they would have learned in school with Christie’s sister-in-law, Colleen (aka Colleen from Potomac with the small kitchen), while Christie and Colleen were on the Wheeler family vacation. Unfortunately, the Dynamic Duo experienced a myriad of issues ranging from screaming children to problems with the audio. However, a new day has come! What once was known as “the lost episode” is no longer lost! Please enjoy the best parts from our discussion that hot and drink filled day in June!
Well, you've been on the edge of your seat waiting to hear all about the end of the LA trip. Wait no longer! In this episode the dynamic duo discusses their last night in the City of Angels and their BIG celebrity sighting in Part Two of their LA Recap! An outing to a fancy LA establishment did leave Christie and Nicole with an unexpected question about artichoke consumption. In true theme of the podcast, the end of a vacation and the transition to normal everyday life is about as underwhelming as things get. But it doesn't matter how long the jet lag or post-vaca bloat last, they are always ready for their next adventure!
Part Two of their discussion includes: Craig’s, Michael Bolton, California Pizza Kitchen, and Delta Sky Lounge, as well as all of the reasons to be underwhelmed when you return from a trip!

This week, Christie and Nicole are recording from their Airbnb in West Hollywood during their jammed packed weekend in the City of Angels.

Their discussion includes, but is not limited to: Economy Rental Car, Airbnb, Night + Market, Saved By The Max, Pump, Runyon Canyon, Backyard Bowls, Venice Beach Boardwalk, James’ Beach, Gjelina, Venice Beach Ale House, SUR, Santa Monica, and Fig Restaurant.

This is Part Two of our very first crossover podcast with DecantDC! Part One can be found at- https://apple.co/2tRgPlD.
This week Nicole and Christie teamed up with Dana and Sarah from DecantDC to try out four different wines and discuss how exactly one makes friends as an adult. The ladies chat about the different ways they have tried to make new friends during different points in their lives- whether they were living in the same place they grew up in, alone in a city they just moved to, part of a couple that was looking for other couple friends, or as a new parent. The best part about this crossover is that everyone made new friends in the process!
