I found the Newbie Traveler podcast a number of years in the past and have become an on the spot fan. When one episode per week isn’t sufficient for me, I’m going again to take heed to outdated ones. Not too long ago I made a decision to return to the very starting. It wasn’t simple to seek out, them however I’ve actually been having fun with them! It’s enjoyable to notice the modifications which have developed over time reminiscent of the controversy in regards to the theme music after you launched it someplace round episode fifty-something. I significantly benefit from the private vignettes and episodes about your individual travels which had been extra frequent firstly.
I used to be listening to episode 129 which was from about 10 years in the past and on the finish of the episode you learn a letter from a younger lady from Israel named Tamar. As you had been studying the letter one thing began to sound acquainted. She talked about her weblog within the letter and also you stated that you simply’d put a hyperlink to it within the present notes. I went to the hyperlink and was each shocked and delighted to discover a image of my daughter! I don’t even suppose I knew what a weblog was 10 years in the past and I actually didn’t know that she had been writing one! That letter gave me a very good snicker and I’ve been chuckling about it for the previous few days.
Ten years later and she or he’s nonetheless listening each week. I’m fairly certain that listening to this letter learn on the finish of an episode would give her a very good snicker too!
Thanks once more for the good podcast.
