Each program mixes interviews with guest travel experts, your call-ins with questions and comments, and music. We talk about our favorite travels in Europe, as well as travel anywhere in the U.S. and the rest of the world. Along with exciting destinations, we discuss general topics, as far flung as keeping healthy on the road, bicycling trips and tips, senior travel, finding chocolates, fear of flying, and more.
