  1. Best of the Road sounds like it might be able to help me out. I am not much of a traveler at all but do like to visit small towns in the US via road trip on occasion. When and if I go on a vacation I want it to be as stress free as possible-Thank you for the advice it is truly appreciated.

  2. I never heard any of this and maybe because I am from Philippines but I would love to watch travel guides because I am planning to have some travels soon.

  3. I always have such anxiety when I travel but cannot help wanting to check out these shows. Destination Showdown looks like it would be fun to watch.

  4. I watched some episodes of the When Vacations Attack before and it was really scary. Vacations may sound really fun, but you are also taking that risk of going to new and strange places. It is nice to research about the area, as some people around that have been there before, and stuff like that. I don’t think I have seen some of these shows before though.

  5. Well, you should really be ready when you are traveling. And stay calm, when things gone out of hand.
