Good episode? Give it some love!
Travelers to both Turkey and Dixie have one thing in common: they come back from their trips full of stories and enthusiasm for the people they met.
This week we will meet a married tour guide couple from Istanbul, Turkey who are here to dispel some American misconceptions about their country. They will then give us an overview of what you'll find in the cities and the countryside of Turkey.
We will also learn the essence of "Shun-piking" with backroad car trip suggestions from guidebook author Jamie Jensen. Our callers will highlight some of the Southeast's attractions from Key West to Tidewater, and Louisiana to the Blue Ridge mountains.
