#MurphysDo148Days trip, we have a giveaway


Netflix Catch Ups | Giveaway

As much as we love travelling and staying in local homes, there are two things I miss dearly. First – friends and family we hang out with regularly. Who knew we were so attached to them? Second – TV watching. Today, in honour of day 74, the halfway point of our #MurphysDo148Days trip, we have a giveaway for you.

All the homes we’ve stayed at during our trip have had WiFi connections with the exception of the 5 days in Madrid but our challenge has been a data cap or slow speeds.  If we were staying in hotels, we would have had the same issues (plus some others!). We’re truly spoiled in Canada with our unlimited Rogers internet package and I dearly miss hanging out on my couch once the kids have gone to bed. Either the hubs and I will be watching Netflix shows or I’ll be watching a chick flick with one of my girls during our monthly wine and cheese nights. Now we are either exhausted to do anything or try to catch up on work and blog writing.



Don’t get me wrong, we’re loving our GuestToGuest experience and the chance to experience local life, but it’s also giving us insight into how other countries are more developed in some arenas and less so in other parts. We lucked out with great internet speeds once we left the south of Spain and Morocco and so in Barcelona we tried to watch a couple shows but we were so exhausted because that city had SO much to explore. Zaragoza and San Sebastian were probably our favourite Netflix watching homes because we got to explore in the day time and then chill in the evening. Suits and Kimmy Schmidt have been our go to shows for those relaxing nights.


Not everyone gets us when we tell them we miss watching TV as our top two things we miss…it’s hard to explain “down time’ to some people! Do you have a parent, sibling or friend who doesn’t understand your Netflix obsession because they aren’t a user yet? If so, then you’ll definitely be on board for this Netflix giveaway!

Netflix giveaway

Enter below and tell us about a person in your life who needs Netflix in theirs, and you both could win a 3-month subscription!!!  74 more days until I curl up on my couch with the remote in my hand and my unlimited Rogers home internet package!!

    A friend of mine is a total technological non-adapter. She thinks traditional cable TV is the only way to go and cannot understand how I can enjoy watching shows on my tablet or why I would go to the trouble of running a cable to my TV so I can watch shows that way. Although, I do not hear her complain when I find a great movie to watch! Thanks for the awesome giveaway opportunity.

    My parents don’t understand my Netflix adoration; in fact, Netflix and chill is “sheer laziness” according to them. They have no idea that Netflix keeps me sane and provides me with hours of entertainment, education and fun!

    Honestly, the first thing that popped into my head when you asked who doesn’t understand my Nextflix sessions, was my cat. I know it sounds a bit nutty, but he’s a very playful, very needy cat. He hates being ignored but he won’t just sit still and cuddle, so Netflix is not his friend.
    If you want an actual human though, it’s probably my dad. Not that he never binge-watches anything himself, but you should have seen his face when I tried to convince him he should watch Jane the Virgin. He definitely doesn’t understand the greatness of my netflix choices

    • Yashy
      June 21, 2017 at 5:11 pm

      hahah that’s funny! Also… we LOVE Jane the Virgin!
