Trevor introduces the episode by talking about how, while their careers have been travel related, Scott and he still haven’t seen it all. People often assume because of their jobs they’ve been everywhere and seen everything but the reality isn’t that simple. Scott agrees that there are never enough hours in a day, weeks in a month, and months in a year for travel.
Scott starts by explaining how travel sets the stage for wild things to take place like few other things can: New places, intriguing people, the great unknown, caution thrown to the wind, and perhaps a few too many drinks. Things happen, doors open, situations arise, and hopefully legends ensue.
Both Trevor and Scott have had the pleasure of experiencing the mahout (elephant) program at the Anantara Golden Triangle in the far northern regions of Thailand along the Mekong River and welcome John Roberts to talk about an issue that is at the heart of many tourist experiences in Asia: elephants.
