“Bad Lands: A Tourist on the Axis of Evil.” A Rick Steves Interview

Rick Steves‘ podcast takes listeners to unexpected destinations as he interviews fellow travel writers and guides about their passion. In a recent episode he interviewed Tony Wheeler, founder of Lonely Planet, about his latest book, “Badlands: A Tourist on the Axis of Evil.” Tony visited Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Libya, Burma, North Korea, Cuba, and Albania in an expanded itinerary of evil inspired by George W Bush.

Cuba, Albania and surprisingly Iran featured as the most traveller friendly destinations but these journeys show us all that almost anywhere is reachable with proper planning. Take the time to listen, and travel with Tony.
