If you know me, you know how much I love to talk to people who love to talk about travel. So when Peggy had the chance to talk to Ralph Collier, I couldn’t wait to turn the tables on him. Ralph is the host of the radio program “Tours and Detours,” which you can tune into weekdays at 9:58 a.m. on the WRTI Classical Network or online at www.WRTI.org. You can find the WRTI station for your area on the Web site. Ralph also writes his own travel column, titled “Tours and Detours,” for the Main Line Times.
I had a wonderful time speaking with Ralph, and I hope you enjoy our latest Friendly Planet Travel podcast. Tune in below to hear all about Ralph’s history in the radio biz, his favorite way to travel, his suggestions for a great vacation “off the beaten path,” and more.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to speak with Barry Reisman of WNWR’s Dining and Destinations on Philadelphia’s AM-1540. On the weekly broadcast, Barry discusses "food, travel, and the good life." And of course, I was more than happy to talk to him about Friendly Planet Travel.
You can hear the full hour-long episode of Dining and Destinations by clicking play below. Barry covers all sorts of fascinating (and mouth-watering) topics, but if you don’t have time to listen to the entire show, and just want to tune in to the "destinations" portion of the program with my interview, scroll to minute 32:00.
I talk all about Friendly Planet Travel, my history in the travel business, the benefits of group travel, and more. We also cover a few of our featured Friendly Planet Tours, including the Taste of Vietnam. So have a listen!
Yesterday I had the great opportunity to join Arthur Von Wiesenberger on his radio show Around the World for the Santa Barbara News-Press.
During the program, I explain how to pack for an eight-day trip to Around the World listeners. I wrote about my six packing tips here on the blog, but it was incredibly fun to talk about it live on the air too! And Arthur is quite the charmer.
You can watch the full Around the World with Arthur Von Wiesenberger segment, or just tune in to my part of the show. Either way, enjoy!
