Rewinding our number-one destinations of the last 12 months — plus, paella! (Recorded 12/24/22 in Barcelona, Spain)
London, England. My favorite place to visit. The history is astounding. We are going back for King Charles III’s coronation.
Rovinj, Croatia is my number one choice for 2022. The town has an Italian flare to it and it is rather close to Venice( Venice can be reached by car or ferry). The food is very good and reasonably priced. The old city is charming and the promenade is lined with restaurants and shopping. You wont find the mass of tourists that you would expect in Split or Dobrovnick. Go there soon, as I had heard that cruise ships will soon be making a stop in this lovely city.
My husband and I took the Royal Scotsman 4 night train journey in Scotland in June. We also spent time in Edinburgh. It was a long Covid delayed 25th anniversary trip, but we finally did it and were so glad. It was an amazing trip. The Highlands were spectacular. We can't say enough about Scotland. It was truly a trip we will never forget.
My husband and I traveled to Sanremo, Italy in September and stayed there for 5 weeks. We were on the 7th floor of a walk-up, yes walk up apartment building but it was wonderful, overlooking the Old Port. We had two pigeons adopt us for the stay, and bought them bird seed because clearly they expected to be fed. We loved being Italians for a length of time, and from there we could travel by train or bus to cities along the Italian Riviera, and if we had chosen, to French Riviera as well. Sanremo has wonderful, family owned restaurants, beaches, and bike trails along the Mediterranean.
Good morning, guys! Loved the podcast and excited for next week's "worst destinations" discussion. We traveled throughout Europe the past summer and by far the most beautiful place we went to was Lucerne. We took the Golden tour; gondola to the top of Mt. Pilatus, a cog railway down the mountain to a boat that then leisurely ambled across Lake Lucerne, all followed by Swiss fondue supper and an ice cold beer. Highly recommend!
Family flew to Northern Ireland to join a group descended, as was my wife, from a Quaker couple who later emigrated to Pennsylvania. Marveled at Giants’s Causeway of course. Visited Quaker cemetery, and attended a service. Never knew that NI is ideal for growing apples - orchards extended over the hills for miles (actually kilometers). Took train to Derry, only walled city extant in Ireland and “home” of Derry Girls comedy on Netflix.
I flew 3 times this, first time I was in plane since Dec 2011. All 3 flights were to Boston, from Ord and Mke (×2). American and Delta respectively. All great experiences. Delta, both times were exceptional. Loved Boston, prior to this hadn't been there since '74! Plan on a trip back in 2023 as well as Texas!
Would appreciate transcript for those with hearing issues. Very disappointing by Elliot Confidential
If I've missed the link to a transcript please let me know.
Had a wonderful time in Nashville in October. Exceeded our expectations. Wonderful people, great music. Decadent food.
Our National Parks and Monuments! Blown away by the beauty and grandeur of each park I have visited. So much to see and do right here in the USA.
An excellent small boat harbor and the location of a passel of delicious seasonal restaurants. Love the town.
Strasbourg. France. Took an all day food and wine tour. Reminded me if my grandmother, who was from there.
