Welcome to the Travelman Podcast, my name is Ben and I host this cool little podcast. I’ll be your Sherpa on this episode, actually I’ll be your second Sherpa. If you’re joining me for the first time then thanks a bunch for listening.

On today’s episode, I’ll be chatting with Alex Hunter who hosts the awesome travel channel Attaché on YouTube. Amassing over 140,000 subscribers Alex brings a unique take on travelling with his well-crafted videos reminiscent of Anthony Bourdain, who we both loved.

I’ve been listening to Attaché for a long time now and I’m super pumped that Alex said yes to coming on my podcast.

So, sit back and enjoy the conversation I had with Alex.
