Unexpected and genius travel advice!

Worth it for Mark E!

I agree with other posts that being Bloomberg it can be a bit too 'posh' in hotel choices, etc., but I have loved Mark Ellwood's take on travel since CNT Travelogue (why did they end it?!) and it's great to hear him and Nikki together - she has a good perspective and rapid fire questions for guests. The 'bell' is a great hook and the tips being repeated at the end really helps!

Is there a version for working class folks?

I travel all over the U.S. for work, and occasionally into Canada. Lots of long plane and car rides to fill with podcasts. I primarily listen to music, news, and current events, so I was thrilled to see a podcast specifically for travellers.

I really enjoy the hosts and their enthusiasm for the topics.

However, is there a version of this podcast with tips and such for working and middle-class folks? It's lovely to hear you wax poetically about Paris and Dubai and Italy and Kenya and all parts in between.

Believe it or not, many of us are just middle income work-a-day schlubs trying to make ends meet before retirement. Would be great if there were more PRACTICAL tips for the rest of the world who don't have the time or money for a spa break during our layover in Hong Kong.
