Episode 8 - Nathan Day: A Mixture Of Vegas and Pyongyang

Description

Having visited 61 countries on five continents, it’s safe to say that Melbourne resident, Nathan Day, is an avid traveller and an ideal guest for Travel Bubble. 

In this episode we cover Chernobyl, the gates of hell, 70-year-old booze hounds on 18-30 holidays and a restaurant with a secret password. 

It turned into a bit of a sporty special with Nathan telling us about all the sporting events he’s visited from baseball in Florida, hockey in Helsinki to football games all over the world. We even go off on a bit of a Maradona tangent which is never a bad thing. A big thanks to Nathan Day for taking part and thank you for listening.
