Trules talks with long-time travel blogger and podcaster, Chris Christensen, "The Amateur Traveler"... whose cool rules of the road include: 1- "Never lose your sense of wonder and adventure when you're traveling." 2- "Never complain that you don't do things that way at home; that's part of the point of traveling." 3- "Never whne, because in the grand scheme of things, if you can afford to travel, what do you have to complain about?"
Enjoy the banter between Trules, who travels, and Christensen, who interviews about travel.
Trules arrives at the international airport in Denpasar on the magical island of Bali - to meet his Indonesian wife - but she is not there. She is, instead, in the local Kasi Ibue hospital with... dengue fever... one of the most feared, mosquito-born illnesses in the world. After waiting a week with Surya on intravenous drip, they go to the "Good Karma" bungalows on the still-pristine East Coast of the island, where Trules promptly has a head-on motorbike collision by driving on the wrong side of the road. A comic misadventure with original gamelon music composed by Amanda Yamate, the Trules survive, managing to lose 2 of their collective 18 cat lives amidst the Balisnese magic and the good karma.
