Great Travel Podcast

This is a wonderful companion show to another podcast, ACTIVE TRAVEL ADVENTURES, both hosted by the engaging Kit Parks. Listen to both — this show is about HOW to travel, the other is about WHERE to travel. But both feature the host’s thoroughness and bright, positive outlook. Full of information and tips, both shows are gems.
