Hey Chris,

Congratulations on the big 100! Good going man.

(And I’m hoping for 100 more.)



Congratulations on the big 100!!! How exciting. And you cover an area I’m planning a trip to for your 100th show!

We’re planning a week in the Mosel Wine Region (we will get to Trier! For the second time), staying in a cute little Bundalo in a German Ferienpark, then a long weekend in Mozarttown Salzburg and then five days to show my husband Berlin. I can hardly wait.

But 100 podcasts – regular and reliable, and always of fantastic quality!




Congratulations (rather late) on 100 really great shows. My husband and I stayed in Interlaken a couple years ago. Although I loved the setting for some reason I didn’t love the town. Maybe it was all the emphasis on extreme sports or something. After listening to your show I wish we had stayed in Grindlewald. We’ll just have to go back.
