Especially during COVID, this show helps me daydream about amazing places that I have to visit someday. I love to travel so I’ve been some of these places, but I am getting ideas too. Dreeeaammmmy.
Real travel talk, love it!
Love the casual/cool banter of the hosts. This is real travel talk for those of us seeking something more authentic, revelatory, accesible and exciting. Especially loved the restuarant talk and quirky local lore. Will definitley be subscribing for more.
Was great to dive into different destination inspirations. The two hosts are equal parts knowledgeable and charming, it feels like an intimate evening discussing traveling with two friends over drinks.
