Fantastic Podcast…loving these episodes

What a delight this podcast is. Damian does a tremendous job in interviewing his guests and really gets to the heart of the topic…..things to think about to have a safe journey wherever that may be. If you want to fly, drive, cruise and he goes into so much more. Definitely worth the listen and his accompanying website is amazing and offers a wealth of information! I highly recommend!

Very useful tips for safe and worry-free travels.

This is mostly an interview format show where the host discusses travel topics with experts in different fields. For example, shows about worry-free RV trips with RV experts, etc. The shows are fairly short, but it is helpful to hear tips and advice from experts.
