Matthew Wahlgren is the perfect guest for this weeks episode because the podcast turned ONE and Matt was my first guest! Happy Birthday Travel Radio (yippee!) and thank you all my guests!
Matt recently returned from a three day pre-cruise trip to Pachu Picchu and a River Cruise down the AMAZON! We talk transit to Peru through Panama on a regional carrier, some wild cuisine (possibly your pets), a bus trip to the top and an abandoned city 9,000 ft above sea level.
Listen next week for Part 2 and find out what is considered a "small" Anaconda…
