Amazing Podcast! Informative and Entertaining.

This is a great podcast! I found it to be a great mix of being both informative and entertaining. I learned a lot good lessons about traveling and at the same time had me listening intently to see what would happen next.

I would recommend this podcast travel junkies and travel newbies alike.

Good job!

Great lessons and advice from the pros!

It can be really scary when something bad happens to you while in a strange country. This podcast is a valuable resource for what to do or not to do in those situations.
