Rick. I have been a podcast junky for a couple years now and listen to little else. I have had about 8 that I rotate through and have hung on every episode. However, I can honestly say since I did a search for travel podcasts and listened to the first episode of yours I’ve not listened to ONE podcast I had previously subscribed to. I wake up at 530 every morning now just so I can go for a run while listening to your shows. I make an excuse to go for drives to listen and every spare moment you are in my ears. Everyone I know asks me where I’ve traveled to today. And my answer is Istanbul Budapest Cairo Disney Land Ireland .. learning about the wars of our past and the history of our planet.. how to find our ancestors, how to appreciate our roots, and be still, and be present, and learn to live life on another deeper level. Ive road tripped the south and know the best places to have clam chowder in the East.. I’ve hiked Mount Everest and been on safari in Africa.. I AM IN LOVE!!
Ever since living in Israel at 14 yrs old for a year something has been awakened inside me and travel and history and people are in my bones. I’ve learned so much and feel life more deeply and you’ve fed my soul. I hope that some day I can go and experience the beauty of this planet and its people and all it has to offer, but until then thank you thank you for opening up this world for us all!(And I don’t agree that you interrupt your guests. You’re perfect!) Love, Your #1 fan Haley Carlson in Utah ♥️🌎
