Listened to podcast #140 with Anthony Sandberg of OCSC and sailing adventures around the world.

I have personally joined Anthony on four travel adventures: sailing Leeward Islands in 2001, Kenya Safari in 2002, Greece in 2002 and Peru in 2007, hiking the Andes to Macchu Picchu.

Anthony paints a wonderful picture of the full spectrum of meaningful experiences one can expect to enjoy with any of the OCSC Adventure Travel trips. From my personal experiences I could only add that Anthony understates the OCSC Adventure Travel experience, he creates a masterpeice of lifetime experiences.



Really enjoyed the show especially since I don’t sail so I got me thinking about a completely different type of trip. I also look forward to a possible Ireland show as my husband and I were there two years ago and I’d love to listen to a show about it. Thanks again for all the work you put into the shows.

This post could not have come at a better time. We are about to film Jet Set Life (a company that focuses on the Jet Set) in the Greek Islands next week. You do a great job here and we watch your show all the time! Thanks for the post!!
