Gail and Piper discuss the meta and minutiae of  travel.  From how to think about an upcoming trip, to where to eat at a particular travel hub, and all the way down to whether or not to pack that single use wet knappy.  They’ve been there and done that, both domestically and internationally, over the last *cough-cough* years and have OPINIONS.  Join us for a constant updating of what does and does not make sense in the diaspora of “traveler.”
