great way to travel together

What a wonderful way to experience the events of 'Abdu'l-Baha's travels a century ago. The podcasts really bring it to life. It's great to be able to follow the travels and hear the talks 'Abdul'l-Baha gave. I especially like the 'call to action' portion which reminds us to tie out study to tangible actions. So professionally done. What a gift.
