• If you don’t know where to go: “Amateur Traveler Podcast.” Every episode features a different destination with a one-week itinerary and includes an interview with someone who has visited, lives there or wrote the book on it.

• If you’re heading to a National Park: “Everybody’s National Parks.” Get tips and hear from experts on nature, history, activities and tours. Although it is geared towards family adventure, it’s suitable for anyone.

• If you want to hear stories and tips from fellow travel addicts: “The Thoughtful Travel Podcast.” Topics include ethical wildlife tourism, overnight train travel, conservation travel and things going wrong.

Easy, affordable way to stay connected just about anywhere in the world

As we traveled over bumpy roads in rural Kazakhstan, I checked my email, sent a message in WhatsApp and scrolled through photos. I was connected to the Internet through my Airalo eSIM. Why hadn’t I used this fantastic tool before?

It was easy to download the app, choose a destination and package, install the eSIM and activate it. I got 5 GB of data for 30 days for just $13. There was no need to figure out whether my phone was unlocked, find a SIM card or worry about incurring roaming charges.

Airaolo has eSIM cards for more than 200 countries.
