The allure and awe of travel
I saw a bad review calling out Intercontinental’s marketing of the Intercontinental Life. As someone who spent 20 years in advertising, I can tell you the sponsored aspect is light and well worth the listen for the content delivered. Each story shares a different benefit of travel but in a way that captures the aura of travel.
Do you enjoy food?
The episodes I listened to focused a bit too much on foods in specific cities. I’m not a food person, but if you are, this is a good listen!
So well done!
