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.

Such an interesting podcast

When listening to these stories the time passes so fast (for someone like me who is typically not a good listener.)

The stories are so interesting, exciting and keeps me on my toes till the end.

Beside that you can definitely learn a lot, there are tips and strategies of how to avoid unpleasant experiences..

I absolutely enjoy this show!
