The Podcast I had been Looking For

I had been looking for a good travel podcast for a while when I finally stumbled upon the Amateur Traveler. It was exactly what I was looking for with its easy going nature and wide variety of destinations. I’ve enjoyed listening to episodes about places I’ve been and reminiscing on those trips while listening to episodes to help plan new adventures in the future. Keep doing what you’re doing Chris, this show is great!

Satisfying my travel bug while being grounded

As a person who lives and dies from one adventure to the next being grounded in 2020 and now in 2021, has been challenging. I’m grateful to have a podcast that allows me to feel that I am traveling to new places that I’ve never been as well as opening my mind to revisiting other places that I’ve been before with a locals perspective. Thank you so much for having this podcast and can’t wait to hear what you have coming next.

Almost great

This would be a 5-star review but for the guy you had on last week who talked about Mysore, India. What a self-important d-bag. I appreciate that it’s likely difficult to find good guests these days, but that was the bottom of the barrel. Come on Chris!
