7 days in Europe podcast

I was really excited to listen to your podcast as we are fortunate enough to work points and miles somehow into our Europeon trips and go almost every year. We are actually staying at the Sheraton in Salzburg when we go soon and excited to give a review.
We always include Saltzburg and Germany in our trips as we have Family there. We are both born and raised Americans who are well traveled.
I am a The Points guy fan and came across your podcast so this was the first one I listened to.
Wow! Based on this podcast, I would not want to travel to any of those places based on you and your wife’s commentary.
Your wife lead every comment with all the negatives. A lot of complaining in some of the most beautiful places in the world.
To be fair, I give you credit for pointing that you should of planned ahead better, and you seemed to come to your wife’s rescue after her negative comments. The first thing people will always remember is the first thing you say, not the last thing you say, so when you lead with negatives every time...
As an experienced traveler. I born and raised here in the U.S but worked in the Travel Industry many years , lived abroad and spent many years traveling throughout Europe and I can definitely say Munich and Salzburg are two of the most highly recommended areas to visit. Btw (the Germans do not pronounce Munich Munchin :) ) In your defense , its not easy to say it in German correctly.
Europe in the summertime is HOT and full of vacationers so that should of been expected. I tell people to experience the best of Europe, go in Spring and Fall when Temps are mild as some places don’t even have Air Conditioning. Booking bike tours in the summer heat is not recommended unless its early morning.
I also recommend for people to bundle up in their favorite winter clothes and go during the Christmas Markets between Thanksgiving and Christmas, It is POSTCARD beautiful and dreamy. You don’t even feel the cold, the beauty takes it away.
You went on a very touristy tour in Salzburg, I was surprised you expected it to be anything less than... There are so many fascinating things in Munich and Salzburg, you needed a few more days. The Sheraton Salzburg is a beautiful hotel with a perfect location, its unfortunate you were there during Construction. They are already done with it by the way. I highly highly recommend visiting these 2 most beautiful cities. Also flying business is a privilege most people don’t get to experience. I also never experienced being hot, if anything, I have to dress in layers because the plane is usually freezing. I
Am going to listen more of your podcasts maybe this was just a one off...

Good info. Stop bleeping

Would have rated it higher by the third episode I listened to, they kept bleeping out their kids’ names. Really annoying.
