Travel? You Bet!

Can’t wait to listen and LOVE THE TITLE!!

It’s billed as a confidence builder, so maybe it works for that? But if you’re seeking specific travel suggestions for a listed destination, it’s not that. For example, the “New Zealand” episode tells us there are two islands and the capital is Auckland (it’s not), and then transitions to discuss Tijuana, Mexico. The “New York” episode tells us the ferry to the Statue of Liberty is 25-cents (it’s not) and transitions to Florida (yes, generally the entire state: “it’s not just for old people”) and Arizona.
