Wow what a great podcast!
This is positively the most engaging and interesting podcast I've ever heard. And those two, Bill & Laurie, especially Bill what a cool ... wait a minute that's me. Why am I writing a review about my own podcast. Kind of like one of those street corner beggers who puts some of his own money in the cup first so that people will put more in.
Makes my upcoming trip to Puerto Rico spring to life!
I really enjoyed sampling these podcasts on El Yunque and the inn. The mixture of interviews, soundscapes, ideas for adventures and background on the inn is both practical and inspiring. A lovely idea, effectively produced. Subscribing to the podcasts means former guests will continue to be reminded of their experiences. My only complaint is that the podcasts should be mentioned and accessible from all the inn web pages so that you don't have to go hunting for the link.
Great Podcast about Puerto Rico
My wife and I are planning a trip to Puerto Rico this summer and found this podcast to be very helpful. Thank you for taking the time to put these together and enlighten us as to what to expect during our vacation.
