Love Asia - Love Travel Talk

Having been lucky enough to spend lots of time in Asia myself, listening to these guys is both informative and reminiscent. The podcasts are easy to listen to, give very useful info and tell great stories showcasing the SE Asia I love so much. I listen to them one after another, again and again... I can’t wait to jump on an Asian bound plane again!

Thoughtful, intelligent, respectful, entertaining

This is one of the best travel podcasts out there. The love and respect these two have for South East Asia shines through. There is a real maturity to their show that is absent from most travel podcasts. I have loved every episode and love to reminisce or dream along with them. Thanks.
