We are all so ready to travel, am I right? I for one cannot wait to get out and explore specially after checking out a new series on MillionStories.com called George Goes Everywhere. George Igoe, (pronounced “I go”- how perfect for a traveler right!?) has $100 to spend for each of the cities that he visits. During each city visit George focuses on a few topics of interest for that city and some are pretty cool because they aren’t say the main attraction for each. Make sure to watch my interview with George below or on my YouTube channel and share it with all your friends that need post-pandemic travel ideas.
What I Loved
First of all George has fantastic energy. I was very excited to check out the series and once I watched one episode, I couldn’t stop watching the rest. He really brings out great things of each city and it makes you want to visit and have his same experiences. George shares some pretty awesome spots that could be considered “off the beaten path” per say and those to me are traveler gold! As travelers, we love hitting the main attractions at cities we visit, but it’s the mom and pop places that really stay in your heart. I cannot wait for you to check out George Goes Everywhere, you’re going to really enjoy it.
Join along as George dives into local cultures and history and tours cities’ hidden gems, from old subway stops and Naval ships, to puppet museums and corn mazes. A New Jersey native, Igoe has worked for shows such as “Family Guy,” “The Cleveland Show,” and was a writer on CBS’ “Mike & Molly.” No stranger to the world of affordable travel, he developed “Rich Travel / Poor Travel,” a show where he traveled first class with frequent flyer miles, then explored the destination city on a micro-budget.
