1001 Travel Tales: A New Podcast!

This entry is part 1 of 12 in the series 1001 Travel Tales Podcast

I’m thrilled to announce that I am co-hosting a new podcast called 1001 Travel Tales: Stories from Seasoned Travelers. “The Yo to my Yo” I met Shobha George a couple of years ago at a TBEX blogger conference in Spain. So much in sync that we often finish each other’s sentences, we clicked right away….

Kerwin McKenzie is one of those people who just attracts people to him. Gregarious, friendly, with a kind face you trust right away, he greets people he’s only briefly met – like me – as if you’re already great friends. His website, Passrider, is geared particularly toward airline employees, their families and friends. Kerwin seemed the perfect…

When Shobha and I sat down to interview Ernest White at the World Travel Market last fall, I was at a bit of a disadvantage. Shobha already knew Ernest, but I had just met him. Without any preparation, and without having visited either of his websites, I just decided to go with the flow of…

Vicki Winters is quite a character. She’s brash and loud and completely uninhibited. I admire that. We all say things like “I don’t care what anyone else thinks!” when we, for example, leave the house wearing a track suit or sing karaoke out of tune. But we really do care. We care intensely.

When Shobha and I decided to interview Rebecca Hall for our podcast, 1001 Travel Tales, what we had in mind was her blog about being an expat in Greece: Life Beyond Borders.
