Michelle w/CMV ,

Great content!

I love this podcast & how it doesn’t focus on 1 particular travel destination. I like hearing about it ALL! I guess that’s why it’s called “All Things Travel!” I like how you tell your own travel & personal stories & bring your kids & friends in. I feel like I know you! Keep up the great content!
