We lost last week’s episode, but came back strong this time around with planes big and small crossing oceans and some fun new routes and money for US startups.

More airline partnership and a key route trimmed. Plus, cool new trains and airlines and loyalty plays.

Back on the road and exploring the world, with some thoughts on just how well that’s going overall and why we’re not in a huge hurry to do more of it too soon.

Sometimes travel is about new and different adventures. Sometimes it is about repeating the most boring or ridiculous habits. And, when done right, it is often a great blend of both. We close out this week’s episode with some discussion of travel souvenirs that we’re constantly collecting, or at least that we did back when we traveled more.
