Welcome to the Travelman Podcast, my name is Ben and I host a pretty cool travel podcast. I’ve travelled to many parts in the world and I share my experiences with others.
Today on the podcast I want to talk about a few people I met in Seoul and Taipei when I was there just a few weeks ago, and some exciting travel orientated stuff for next year and a very interesting topic called Dark Tourism.
I have some audio recorded from Dan’s phone. Dan was our Korean food guide, he has a successful blog called Seoul Eats. In the recording, he talks to Mandy and I about Korean street food and an interesting game Korean’s play before they eat.
Also, in about a few hours’ time we'll have a new addition to the household. A baby kitten. I’m a bit scared about how my current cat Miyu will react to it. Hopefully she’s okay.
I’ve watched the YouTube videos on how to introduce a kitten to an older cat so things should be okay.
