Amateur Traveler Interview – The World Heritage Sites of the USA

Once again, I was recently a guest on the Amateur Traveler Podcast with Chris Christensen. This time we talked about the UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the United States.

As of the time of recording in 2015, there are 22 world heritage sites in the United States, and I have been to 21 of them:

Amateur Traveler Interview – St. Helena

For a record 8th time, I’ve had the pleasure of joining my This Week in Travel co-host Chris Christensen on the Amateur Traveler podcast. Similar to my past appearances, the topic dealt with very small places. This time we talked about my recent trip to the island of St. Helena, located 1,500 miles off the coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean.

Amateur Traveler Interview on the Lesser Antilles

Last summer I did an island hopping tour of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean. I recently did two appearances on the popular Amateur Traveler podcast with my friend Chris Christensen to talk about my trip.

Because there were so many islands, we split the interview into two with the first half talking about the Leeward Islands (USVI, BVI, St Martin, Saba, St Eustatius, Anguilla, St Bart’s, St Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Barbuda, and Montserrat) and the Windward Islands (Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St Lucia, Barbados, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, and Trinidad and Tobago).

This was actually my 6th and 7th appearance on the show, going all the way back to 2008. I always tend to talk about tiny countries. My previous episodes include the micro-states of Europe, the Canary Islands, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Persian Gulf States, and Micronesia region.

If you don’t subscribe to the Amateur Traveler, you really should. It is one of the best travel podcasts on the Internet.

Amateur Traveler Interview – Micro-states of Europe

Chris Christensen, my co-host of This Week In Travel, is also the man behind the Amateur Traveler Podcast, one of the most popular travel podcasts on the internet.

I recently did my 4th appearance on the show talking about the micro-states of Europe: Monaco, San Marino, Liechtenstein and Andorra.

My previous appearances include interviews on Micronesia, the Persian Gulf States and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Amateur Traveler Interview: Persian Gulf States


Amateur Traveler Episode 203 – Travel to the Gulf States:
UAE (Dubai), Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait
I did my second interview with Chris Christensen on the Amateur Traveler Podcast. This show is about the time I spent in the Gulf States of Oman, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Kuwait. One note, I said during the interview I was in Dubai in July. I misspoke. I was there in January.

My previous interview with Chris back in March 2008 about the time I spent in the region of Micronesia: Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, Marshall Islands, Guam, and the Commonwealth of Northern Marinas Islands.

I always seem to get the tiny countries….

On a related note, Chris and I are hosting a joint meet up in Vegas tomorrow night at 6pm, at the Pepermill Restaurant. It is located at 2985 Las Vegas Blvd S., just south of the Rivera Casino. If you are in town for Blog World Expo or are a Vegas native, come on by to visit and meet other travelers.

Amature Traveler Podcast Interview – Micronesia

I am featured on this week’s Amateur Traveler Podcast where I talk about my trip to Micronesia. (Hence, the photo of Palau for today’s Daily Photo.)

The Amateur Traveler Podcast is one of my favorite travel podcasts along with the Indie Travel Podcast. Both podcasts focus on talking to real people, not just having tour guides and guide book editors on every episode.

If you are a regular podcast listener, I strongly suggest you subscribe. It is a very well done weekly podcast.

While I’m on the subject, Chris refers to a video I shot in Palau in the Jellyfish lake. For those who haven’t seen it before, here is the video
