Released Wednesday, 27th May 2015
Good episode? Give it some love!
Let's face it, when it comes to preparing for travel emergencies, many people tend to have the "it'll never happen to me" mindset. Trying to come up with a back-up plan or know the right course of action to take when you've lost your debit card or passport in a foreign country can be tough to wrap your brain around. Fred and Jeremy have done some research and put together some useful information to help you plan a stress-free vacation to the blacklisted country of your choice.
