In the inaugural episode of TravelPulse Radio, co-hosts Tim Wood and Barry Kaufman pick the brains of FloJea Travel agents Florian and Jeannie Royack to uncover their specialties as well as some of the top destinations for experiential travel.
"We're starting to lean more towards a lot of the southern Africa and mission type trips," says Florian. "We're doing Europe with river cruises and we're doing other type trips to England because the dollar value is very strong right now."
Having just recently been to South Africa, both agents are high on the destination.
"The place is absolutely amazing and everywhere you turn there's a new and different delight," said Jeannie.
Iceland is also heating up, according to the couple.
"We get a lot more inquiries about Iceland. Iceland seems to be hot on everyone's mind right now," says Florian. "So we're researching some companies there to do business with because we don't like to offer cookie-cutter type things."
Part of trying new things in new places, Jeannie believes, is being able to one-up your friends and family.
"I think, that as a culture, everyone wants bragging rights," she says.
