People telling stories about places they've been.
Mount Rainier National Park
This place is awesome. That's really all. I get into details from my two trips to Rainier this summer. Everything from hiking, swimming holes, sledding in August, glaciers, lost Asian hikers, and why Mt Rainier is worth more than a "maybe we'll get to it if we have a free day in Seattle" destination.
Living in Downtown Portland - Summer of 2020
So what was downtown Portland really like? We lived just a handful of blocks from the center of Portland protests, news coverage, and everything else all summer. Here's our story presented without bias or agenda. Enjoy!
On the list of Arizona destinations, Tucson probably gets overlooked. I run through a short trip to Tucson and talk food, Saguaro National Park, Mount Lemmon, hiking, U of Arizona campus, seeing slices of meteorites, and the general feel and vibe of what I'd consider a sneaky good town.
You can't have a travel podcast and not do a Paris episode. It took us around 60 episodes to get there, but we finally got it done. We talk to Brian and Courtney Marsh, who have been to Paris 6 times, which, oddly enough, includes a trip to get married there. We get into museums, culture, food, crowds, the lure of Paris, best places to get a drink, mistakes that American tourists make, why we think Parisians are welcoming and hospitable, the best cities to add on to a trip to Paris, how the French are better at living and pace of life than Americans, and a whole lot more from this iconic city that I believe lives up to the hype. Enjoy!
I spent a few days in Sedona in early February, so let's talk about it. I talk in circles and touch on outdoor activities, hikes, food, beer, old people, midwesterners, recreational drugs/dispensaries, vortexes, caves that make you more fertile, and why you'll either never want to leave or will get bored quickly. Enjoy!
We talk to Emily Thiagaraj - @travelingthiagaraj on instagram - about her goal to take her daughter to 100 countries before she turns 18, the 44 countries that Emily has visited, and why it is important to create a global perspective when raising kids.
At the 14:45 mark, we shift to Mexico City and why it is such a sneaky good destination. We get into details and recommendations of the incredible food scene, the best cup of coffee she's ever had, museums, the plethora of green spaces and parks that Mexico City has to offer, art, history, why you should never drive there, what makes it a destination that she and her family would consider moving to, chats with locals, pyramids, mountains, and a few other thoughts that may surprise you about the 2nd largest city in the Western Hemisphere (Sao Paulo is #1 in case you were wondering).
Great stories from both the host and the guests! Really enjoy it and makes me want to travel to all the places they talk about!
Love this podcast
I sit at my desk and work on the computer all day. I wanted to try something different than just listening to music so I searched travel podcasts and found this one! Loved every story that was told and have to say I’m of the same mindset when it comes to travel. Not into materialistic things but love to have memories to share!! My husband and I travel quite a bit and I could talk about travel all day. Can’t wait for season 2!
When the day is dull, this never gets old!
I work at a job that requires me to do a very monotonous task over and over, music has gotten old, sports talk has gotten old, but So How Was Your Trip? It never has gotten old! I think what draws me in about it is that the world is too big to find somewhere you don’t like!
