Welcome to the Travelman Podcast, my name is Ben and I’ll be your travel buddy, I hope you’re doing fine and have a trip on the horizon, if you’re new, well hello and thanks for joining me!!!
Today I have a great podcast lined up for you. It features a really cool and interesting guy I met in DTLA last year by the name of Joel. He’s a Theatre Critic for the OC Weekly.
We met while eating some delicious food at Grand Central Market, I think the place was called Prawn Coastal, he was drinking a beer, I was drinking a beer, as all Californians go they’re welcoming and nice to chat to.
We started talking about travel and he told me that he was going to Hawaii the following week and that would mean he had ticked off every state in the US of A. That’s no mean feat!
So, sit back and hear Joel’s reasoning and logic behind leaving the great state of Hawaii till last and how he managed to conquer all 50 states of America.
There’s a language warning on this episode also as Joel has a bit of a potty mouth and I didn’t want to spend hours editing out the word f*#% and whatever else may slip out of his mouth!!!!
Also, this is a two-parter. Be sure to listen to part 2 in a few week’s time!
