By |2020-11-12T08:10:22-06:00November 12th, 2020|Categories: Podcast|

 Jack Goldstein has traveled to 134 countries Jack and I have never met in person, but we have been close, one time both being in the Caucasus at the same time years ago.  And I “met” him numerous times over a quarantine Zoom trivia game for a number of weeks during the height of Covid [...]

Visiting Phuket Vegetarian Festival

By |2020-11-04T11:20:04-06:00November 4th, 2020|Categories: Asia, Unique Experiences|

Visiting Phuket Vegetarian Festival.  Always look for the silver lining.  I have been “stuck” in Thailand since mid-March.  While I spent a couple of months mostly quarantined in my apartment, by June Thailand had effectively opened up.  This meant there was time to explore parts of Thailand I had not been to before.  The added bonus [...]

Natasha Keary … Lived In 10 Different Countries

By |2020-10-09T08:09:00-05:00October 9th, 2020|Categories: Podcast|

Natasha Keary has traveled to 125 countries Natasha and I follow each other on Instagram.  And two things stood out on her profile bio.  First, she travels on a Trinidad and Tobago passport, not one of the most powerful passports in the world.  The second is she has lived in ten different countries.  That piqued my [...]

Visiting King Power Mahanakhon

By |2020-09-24T03:15:15-05:00September 24th, 2020|Categories: Asia, Must-See|

Visiting King Power Mahanakhon.  It is not an obsession, but I definitely enjoy visiting the tallest buildings when visiting a new city.  I have admired the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Petronas Towers in KL, the Taipei 101 obviously in Taipei, the Willis Tower (formally the Sears Tower) in Chicago, and the Bitexco Financial Tower in [...]

Graham Hughes … Three Hobbits Named Mohammed

 Graham Hughes Counting Countries has traveled to every country in the world A fleeting tweet recently connected me to Graham Hughes and paved the way for this podcast.  I had reached out to him years ago, but my email ended up in a spam folder.  So for those who say nothing good comes of Twitter, [...]

By |2020-08-13T12:11:59-05:00August 13th, 2020|Categories: Podcast|

Very Hungry Nomads have traveled to 185 countries I had the opportunity to speak with world travelers Martina Sebova and Rachel Davey, who comprise the Very Hungry Nomads. This was my first outing of attempting to interview two people at the same time. Marty and Rach did an excellent job of moderating the answers. It has [...]

Visiting Kamphaeng Phet and Si Satchanalai.  The Sukhothai Kingdom reigned in current northern Thailand for 200 years starting in 1238.  Sukhothai Kingdom was at one time part of the Khmer/Angkor Kingdom, the predecessor of modern-day Cambodia.  Sukhothai is considered to be the first capital of Thailand, followed by Ayutthaya, Thonburi, and with present-day Bangkok. Sukhothai has [...]

Visiting Grand Palace Bangkok

Visiting Grand Palace Bangkok.  The Grand Palace complex in Bangkok is by no means an off-the-beaten-path monument, but it is a positively a must-see masterpiece.  It is the 4th ranked Thing To Do in Bangkok on TripAdvisor with over 16,000 reviews.  The Grand Palace complex is the official residence of the King of Thailand (formally Siam).  [...]
