Travel Personified

When people ask where I live, I usually just say airports and hiltons. As someone who lives the life of the road warrior, I find this podcast strikes an all to familiar chord with my own experience. A definite must listen to understand the life of the traveller.

I wrote the above a number of years ago and it is as true now as it was then. I look forward to Mark’s take on travel, it’s more about the journey, and cannot count the number of times when I’ve shook my head, laughed and said “yep, been there”.

Informative and easy

Mark does a great job of relating the world of the road warrior with a bit of branching out to those of us who are miles and points nutty

Always a calm and reasonable voice one that’s been in my ears for four years

Excellent travel tips

I have been a fan of this podcast for many years. If you are a road warrior or a mileage runner, you will love the tips to make your travel easier.

Cheers
