and says of Episode 155 – Colorado – “Many Texans agree that Colorado is the only place on earth that can even come close to competing with Texas.”

GREAT show, Chris! The interviewer did a great job of finally explaining the name Dracula, thank you!:)

And he made the sights sound so beautiful.

The ATM Escort story was cute, I could just see him flanked by loud sirened police cars to the ATM, lol. Bet everyone stopped what they were doing to see what all the fuss was about!

PLEASE do more shows about Romania in general.

And do more on Ireland and Scotland, too!

Keep up the great shows, they are as good as being there…..
