Great show

The wife and I love traveling. And this show is so cool to listen to as we can hear a different side of what to do in a city.

Bursting with Inspiration

My favorite kind of podcast, it gets straight to the point to what it's about, travel. All of the tips and suggestions are super helpful and I'll re-listen to episodes before visiting a destination. There are also places that weren't on my list that I added after listening to certain episodes. This podcast is bursting with travel inspiration.

Travel with Locals!

Love how this podcast is global and that you learn about different cultures and hidden gems! I just listened to the Cuenca, Ecuador episode and it was great learning how it is a big expat community, 70 degree weather year round, and that nice restaurants cost $25-30 for a meal. I plan on visiting the Galapagos and Cuenca eventually. I will stay tuned for weekly worldly destinations episodes! Keep it coming.
