The Rhine cruise sounds interesting, but I’m sure it’ll cost more than Vietnam…

Also, since you want people to join the mailing list there should be a link, button or box on the site inviting us to do just that

We ended up deciding on Egypt in November. I will get out the details soon, but it is less expensive for one option than Vietnam.

There is a link to get on the mailing list under the “subscribe for free”, too subtle then?

Egypt is cheaper than Vietnam? o_0

Oh, I always thought that was about subscribing to the podcast only. Yes it is too subtle – your podcast is the primary product of this site, after all!

Yes, the big reason that we will have a cheaper option for Egypt is we are working to choose options to keep the cost down because of what we learned with the Vietnam tour.
