Hi All,

You know..i came across this company on the web the other day and it should thrill travel enthusiasts.. there is this site called Globester..and it offers some amazing fares for international tickets!!

Only just stubmled across your site when googlin’ for Tokyo and NYC for a trip later in the year.

Some excellent suggestions in this and Part2 for NYC…only wish I had found it before I had booked.

Going back now through all the archives, its a great listen. Thanks for your efforts.



I’m visiting new york soon, and was hoping to get a good idea of what to do and where to visit. I tried listening to your podcast, but the breathing into the microphone became unbearable. Really really annoying. I dont know if its because im listening through headphones, but its really loud.



Sorry about that. I fixed that problem in more recent podcasts.
