Copenhagen Episode

I found this show because of the great episode on Copenhagen. I’m visiting Denmark for two weeks this summer and this gave me lots of ideas and got me very excited to be in the city. Didn’t love the long music in the background. It was distracting from great content, but that aside a great show!!

Wonderful Podcast

I have enjoyed listening to this podcast for a while and the enthusiastic host! I recently listened to the Tucson episode as we are planning to visit for the first time next year. Thank you for all the wonderful information from you and your guest. I hope you continue making these exciting podcasts for those of us who love to travel! Five stars!

Taste Journey ,

Love learning about a new destination from a local!

Julie from. Taste Journey Travel

We are all about seeing a new destination through the eyes of a local. The best way to uncover hidden gems and experience local culture when traveling is not through google searches! Search out local intel and let someone help you plan your trip that has first hand knowledge of the destination. It was so much fun chatting with Lee about some of our favorite things to do and eat in Miami. We love helping our clients find local perspectives all over the world. Use this podcast as a travel resource to get the most out of your next journey!
