    We overstayed our welcome. Here's what happened next.

    We overstayed our welcome. Here's what happened next.

    We stayed in Cape Town, South Africa, for two months. That’s way too long. In our latest podcast, we talk about what we did just before we left.

    Let’s just say things got … interesting.

    Also, we’ll tell you where we’re headed next (hint: it’s not Africa).

    And we’ll review some of the favorite places we’ve been stuck in, like Sedona.

    He threatened to knock our heads off. So we made a podcast about him.

    He threatened to knock our heads off. So we made a podcast about him.

    OK, technically, he threatened to “knock our ugly heads off our shoulders” — and he dropped a couple of “F”-bombs, too.

    Our crime? I was filming my son, Iden, working on a cocktail recipe for his website. And this guy at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa, thought we had taken a picture of him, and forcefully demanded that we delete it.

    We didn’t.

    We were afraid he would come after us after we left the food market, but he didn’t. But that got us to thinking about security. How do you find a safe place to travel? How do you avoid dangerous places?

    That’s the topic of this week’s Elliott Confidential podcast.

    We also talk about our latest radio interview with our friends at the Travel Guys Radio Show in Sacramento, Calif.

    Secrets for having a better road trip

    In this week’s podcast, we talk about road trips — where to go, how to take them, what to avoid. We’ve spent the better part of the last decade on the road, so we have a lot to say.

    Out of South Africa

    Out of South Africa

    For the podcast reboot, I decided to get out of town — way out of town. We’re in Cape Town, South Africa, a 20-hour flight from our home airport.

    Here’s my unscripted discussion with the boys, Aren and Iden Elliott, about our experiences here. We talked about everything from South Africa’s tourism infrastructure to security. I hope you enjoy the podcast.

The Sky Guy ,

Always love his quick advice

I’ve enjoyed his column and now this is a quick way to get great travel insight and updates.

Christopher’s Podcasrs

I just discovered these today. They are cool. Christopher reads each of his stories I am working through them now to get current. His daily stories are part of my life. I can listen well I eat breakfast.

Well done, Chris

Content and delivery excellent. Background music awful. For us with hearing issues it makes listening very difficult. Without music you’d have gotten a five star.
