Window seat or aisle? Should you recline that seat? What makes a traveler versus just a tourist? These are just some of the best travel questions and debate topics. These great discussions can be had in a hostel common room, at a bar with new friends, or even fun date night questions between couples. Either way, every single person could have a completely different answer than the other…that’s what makes it so much fun!

In this podcast episode, we’re diving into the great travel debates and travel questions, answering them in our own opinions, and asking you to let us know your thoughts! From what we think counts as having visited a destination to whether or not the aisle or window seat reigns supreme….one thing we can agree on: the middle seat should ALWAYS get both armrests. They’ve earned it.
