Meet your hosts, Al & Leanne Elliott, a husband and wife team who’ve been travelling full time since 2017.

After visiting 43 different countries and 159 towns and cities, it’s safe to say they’ve heard plenty of juicy stories of people who live life on their terms (we call it ‘Living sideways’).

QUICK NOTE: This podcast was formerly called ‘Thravellers’ but the pandemic taught us that travel is not the only way to live life differently - hence the name change!

So join us for weekly episodes where we interview interesting people, and learn how you too can refuse to live life on other people’s terms.

Join us, and live life a little bit sideways.

79: Everything we know about the Spanish Digital Nomad Visa so far If you've ever wanted to live and work in Spain before, then you'll know it's tough if you're non-EU.
However, Spain seems to be following in the footsteps of Portugal, Greece & Croatia and introducing a Digital Nomad visa to allow anyone who is a 'third country' native to live & work in Spain.
In typical Spanish style, the launch date is 'mañana', but in this episode we speak to the Spanish visa expert Jessica Baker (who owns DecipherSpain.com) as she gives us her expert predictions on what it'll look like.
She also goes through the 5 existing visas that will allow you to live and work in Spain without having to wait for the Spanish Digital Nomad visa.
You can find out more about Jessica at:
- Her website
- Her Instagram
- Her Facebook page
And we also mentioned the amazing people at the co-working space in Malaga - The Living Room. They helped us by introducing us to Jessica, so thanks guys!

76: Meet Julianne, an ex-pat mother who has written a book In this episode, we meet Julianne Bosch (pronounced 'Bosk') who has travelled the world as a wife (to a fancy jet-setting, Spanish-speaking businessman) and mother (to 3 cool kids who speak loads of languages).
Regular listeners will know that we don't have (nor do we want!) kids, so we always jump at the chance of sharing travel stories from people who do. 
You can find out more about Julianne on her website, and you can buy her book from her website, or Amazon.
Hope you enjoy this one!

75: 7 lessons from going back to our home country We've had a short break, as we both went back to the UK for 3 weeks.
We hadn't seen some of our friends or family for 2 and half years, so although it was brilliant, we did learn 7 important lessons.
I think it underlined WHY we still want to live and work abroad.
Enjoy!

72: The mindset you need to live & work abroad In this episode we talk to the amazing Mayaan & Gal from Smoozitive who specialise in helping people take that first scary step from comfortable home-life to a strange, exciting and brand new world as a Nomad or Ex-pat.
Join as we talk about belonging, making friends, reverse ex-patting (where you go back to your home country) and the 'Fire Game' (Not as dangerous as it sounds).
You can find Gal & Maayan on Instagram (@smoozitive), their website and you can join the waitlist for their brand new program here.
Let's get stuck in.
PS. The sound at the beginning is Al knocking his microphone over... that lunchtime wine probably wasn't the best idea...
