It was with some apprehension that I listened to your podcast not too long ago, as I’ve beforehand discovered American radio to be fairly extra nonsense than info. Not so with yours, I’m glad to say. Now that I’ve discovered you, I’m eager to hear to plenty extra on my iPod as I do my day by day stroll. My preliminary selection was David Grenewetzki ‘s first journey to India, which I believed was nice.Then I managed to seek out one on Burma. Yippee! Now that the nation is opening up, I’m positive there’ll loads of people who find themselves eager to journey there.
I’m planning a visit to Burma in November and have now listened to the one episode I discovered on that nation. Nonetheless, there may be loads of scope for an additional program, visiting totally different locations and maybe giving extra element about getting round and different issues to do within the cities, notably for a traveler who isn’t on a guided tour. I’d like to listen to from somebody who’s been on the Irrawaddy River boat between Mandalay and Bagan, and in addition the sluggish prepare via the hills between Kalaw and Inle Lake. Maybe the caves at Pindaya. Additionally, the pitfalls of discovering an acceptable price range guesthouse and issues like that. I actually like all these little suggestions which might be so vital. As an example, are the boats on Inle Lake more likely to tip over and destroy my good digital camera! How can one inform if a budget resort has bed-bugs! What consuming choices can be found if the water is dodgy. And most of the people love to listen to in regards to the meals of any nation. When travelling to very poor international locations, it’s good to know what little presents the villagers would respect from an prosperous nation. I imagine the Burmese kids would like to obtain papers and pencils, which they’ll’t afford. In Bali I discovered the poor girls wished my lipstick.
There could possibly be much more helpful little suggestions in your tip tab fairly than focussing on electronics and many others., none of which an individual like me would take away. What to search for when shopping for a backpack and learn how to maintain issues protected are additionally good issues to know. As I’m new to those podcasts, it’s greater than possible that you simply’ve coated all this stuff earlier than; if that’s the case I’ll uncover as I make my means via them, and I apologise prematurely for the recommendation.
Wanting ahead to listening to many extra episodes, and thanks so extra for a really worthwhile program.
