But with one point three billion in funding it doesn't exactly feel low budget clients. I'm assuming are going to pay you enough to somehow make this all work more than enough to justify it. We make twelve million dollars launch from the customers. We signed up. We've signed up more launches than any other company in history before flying. Ellis doesn't just want to make deliveries into orbit though. I want to put a million people in mars. How far out into space do you think a commercial space industry can take it.

And I don't think there's a fold increase in travelers going through airports. So. What do you think is the reason for this we went up from five point wh. Why should say it per capita thing I think. So it's fifteen point three guns. Every million passengers screened in July compared to five point one per million in two, thousand nineteen. So the rate has gone up. I don't think it's an absolute increase what thinks the reason will you got to protect yourself from? The? COVID? Vaccine? Virus. Roller. Arms or definitely the way to go there. I mean it's the TSA which you know brought this up has a great instagram account where they like to. Show Hey, here's all the guns. We got this month. and. The picture that they have on this one is you know it's every picture of a gun is so postage-stamp because there's so many they just the for whatever reason it's gone way up they don't speculate on why but they are quick to remind you. That civil the civil financial penalty for bringing an unloaded gun to check point is two thousand and fifty dollars and it starts at forty one hundred dollars if the gun is loaded and actually TSE's. Instagram site, you'll find out that most of them are loaded. Usually and carry on luggage. They're not necessarily there patting the person down. Yeah, you're actually allowed to take the gun in A. You know in a check luggage you have to pay. You're flying obviously, right. But. These are people who brought them in their carry on luggage and just thought, Hey, I'm a gun on what's the problem here? And apparently, they're folks who clearly don't fly that often or don't pass the sat very often. The interesting thing is that I would think I would have guessed that it would have gone the other way because that you would have fewer people who don't fly regularly during this kind of. Situation, but I don't know if that is wrong or if my all my preconceived notions are just. Wrong Maybe, it's the same people who are flying. These are the ones who didn't stop flying are the ones who bring guns to airport I don't know. That's the other thing I wonder about honestly is the the people who? Aren't staying home also happen to be gun owners I don't know. No, that's that's a good point I mean you saw you probably saw the pictures from sturgis the les largest motorcycle rally in the in the country, and of course, it shows ten thousand people in the middle of the street cheek-to-jowl. Not One of them has ask on and all I could think of is, well, you know there's going to be a lot more empty trailers in about six months. But here's my theory for the the increase in shirts. The TSA by their own admission. Does not catch about eighty percent of. People trying to get through when they do tests. So, always the TSA is saying Oh, we got all these guns this week would, of course that every gun that the claim five of them or for are getting through, and this is the way it's been for you know since nine eleven and what's happening now. Is. Because you have less people flying, you have more resources inspecting fewer travelers. And they're simply doing a better job. It's interesting now I like. Doing before that, I, don't think the rate of people trying to sneak guns has gone up or down that it's always been a thing but now they're just catching more of them because they can devote more resources to fewer people great I mean not necessarily great but I mean that that's actually a very sound theory and if they're figuring they know that Gary, if they're smart as are which I'm not sure anybody. And they figure that out will they be devoting more resources since the question? no because ultimately this is about Pr. And they have you know budgets when when travel does come back to previous levels whenever that is if it ever happens I don't see them getting more money or anything So I think it's just a temporary thing and you know hopefully people will rise up to it and. If people were trying to regularly and I also don't think again, this is just a hypothesis. I don't think most people that put a gun on their carry on is doing it. On purpose. That it's something that they forgot or they weren't paying attention. Or something like that. You know I've I've had a pair of scissors and things like that and. You know maybe you've had like a pocket knife or something that got on board. Things, yeah all the time. A big weapon, but something should have compensated, but it wasn't. And I think we've all had that happen and it wasn't intentional. But anyways, that's that's my fury. I don't even know how you prove it right or wrong but. I would want to see the follow up post from TSA about all the common responses of what they said once they were called out on it. Probably, I didn't know that was in there. was. Like me with like me with the water bottle, shove at the bottom of my bag, right? Exactly. What? You're Gary makes a good point that we've all carried something through. We weren't supposed to I have literally had either three or four Niagara confiscated because I just forgot they were in like some cargo pants pocket or something like that. But thing is, is that there's a difference between a foldable camping knife or a bottle of water and having a three fifty seven magnum in your back and get if you're not bright enough to like remember that that's in there you shouldn't be allowed to have one. That is true but. My counter to that would be that in the last twenty years, we've had no hijackings or incidents on airplanes. You know. So and we know that there are guns that are getting on planes Yeah. If you know not on purpose so. Yeah I, don't think these are i. kind of I agree. I don't think it's really bad actors I. Think it's just People who have guns in the same way as you have pocket knives, right? That's an. Era Zone and Texas compared to where we are in California they can just have them. They destroy them normally speaking from I, live in Dallas Yes. There are a lot of people with. And there have been for. A long time I used to work for boy. This was actually in the early nineties We have a business down here and we had one of the administrative assistance left the company and she's fantastic. Ago Somebody comes up to me at the end go. Yeah about Shirley. Thank God she's gone on. It's like why? Will you know she had the gun purse, right? No, it's go. Oh Yeah. Every day when she left the office at five thirty, she had her hand safety off on the trigger of the gun walking out through the the parking garage and I'm like Oh my and I intend to do like practical jokes and scare people thinks..

You're paying top dollar. You're expecting like Indonesian luxury and then literally from the bedroom. Just a guy building a home. Five hundred feet away from you. Here's my thinking.

"It's one thing to be prepared. It's another to be so bound to your plan and phone apps that you miss out on. What's all around you when you're on vacation usually early when I'm traveling and I'm surprised it's positive once in a while it's negative and I'm willing to pay that price coming up travel writer Seth Google recommends how to get yourself into a globally curious travel mode and off your phone if you're posting to any of the social media apps while you are somewhere than you're taking yourself out of the moment he? The intense popularity of Amsterdam is threatening to overwhelm the city's vibe as tolerant and easy going Destination Local Guy and tells us how Amsterdam's reliance on tourism is starting to affect the the people who live there. The locals cannot buy the groceries that they need. They can't survive on cheese and chocolate. And we'll help you plan a memorable family getaway in the our hit. Let's get ready to explore explore the world. It's traveled rick. Steves the line to get into the Anne. Frank Museum stretches around the block all day long. The increasing popularity of Amsterdam as a tourist destination is putting a real strain on the people who live there to coming up on. Today's travel with Rick Steves. We hear how Amsterdam is coping with its tourist boom and share ideas and how you can be a respectful tourist even at some of it's less Justin family friendly attractions. We'll also check in with listeners. Planning family travels to Europe to ensure everybody enjoys a memorable vacation. Let's start the hour with tips tips on the best ways to be a globally curious traveler with frequent traveler. Seth Cooper Technology travel is undeniably helpful but overreliance on technology and the Internet can also be a hurdle between you and a rich travel experience. Seth goes written about this topic in his new book. Rediscovering travel travel guide for the globally curious and he joins us now for some advice on how we can switch it over to what he calls traveled when necessary seth. Of course there's great uses for technology in our travels. Nobody would deny that but technology can get in the way and I think that's what you addressed in your notion of the travel mode. What is the travel mode? Well think of airplane mode on your smartphone when you get on a plane you put on airplane mode is a bunch of stuff. It just doesn't work and basically Iowa's fantasizing about what because I'm on a trip and I have my smartphone and now my smartphone works in every country in the world. It used to be great. Used to not be able to use your your smartphone in some countries but now works everywhere so it always be like no. I can't use it. I'm not gonNA open tripadvisor knocking to open Google maps. I'm going to get through this day without without it. I'm not going to post to facebook when you know at the Pyramids at Giza or anything like that. So I had this sort of this fantasy that my phone would tell me what they could do and what I couldn't do so I invented this sort of fantasy app called travel mode you flip it on and the main sort of idea of it. Is it restricts how often often use certain elements of your phone but allows you to use the other ones that really help travel okay. So let's go through these just because we're all going to construct this APP APP in our minds. Thanks to Seth Koogle. What about texting and messaging APPs right? Well I think that people love to be connected with their family in case emergency he happens and I'm not against that so what I've done here is I've said you can choose a few people and allow their messages to come through. But the rest of the folks. You're dependent on that one hour a day. I would. I call connection time where you know. You're in your hotel turnoff. Travel Mode and there you get to answer all Texaco's encased cold Turkey here we're going to give ourselves one hour a night to be wrapped up in Oliver social stuff in my fantasy I actually would have it be a A. GPS based thing and you can only use these things when you're inside your hotel room you're not allowed to use them outside so that's a bit of A. It's even more of a fan I like but it's fantasy fantasy so that's okay. Now you mentioned when it comes to email limit your email responses to about the amount of time it would take to right. The weather's here was you. Were beautiful message on a postcard in the old days. Two minutes Max composing each message. Well email is really these days kind of a work up in a way so you know if you have to answer so the question you get two minutes to answer it. That's it and of course it has to be during that one hour of during that one hour in the evening when you're not in overseas when you're really beck at home in your normal. There's just no such thing these days as an emergency email if someone needs to get in touch with you during the day they can text you or call. Yeah now social. Media's the big deal it just we they seem to have a deeply ingrained need this show off on social media when we're traveling but how does this impact the experience. And what should we do about it. Well there's a huge debate in travel travel. But I I can't help but think that if you're posting to Any of the social media apps while you are somewhere. Then you're taking yourself out of the moment now. I do understand the need. They sort of human desire to show up where you are or at least inform your friends of what you're doing or to be clever. So what travel mode does it still allows you to take the pictures to take the videos and it just can't post them until you get back. You're certainly not allowed to see how many people liked it and who commented on. Oh Yeah just doesn't make any sense to do that when you're on vacation and and these software companies are so good at stroking yours. Serotonin needs by headstrong you. The little hearts in the little sparkles as people love would do. It seems very unnatural to take a picture that would be great on instagram. And then wait until nighttime to to post it but in reality you might even be in a time zone where everyone knows asleep anyway right so it's clearly to me. It would make my trips so much better if I were forbidden from posting on social media until nighttime okay so we got permission not to be reporting live but why do you need to interrupt being in the moment. Get the luxury of reporting later and and working within seth's Travel mode our when you can be connected. What about relationship APPS? This is a very interesting point that you brought up. I never even I thought about it. But there's a lot of relationship APPs that can actually be a plus in your travels but under certain constraints. Well I've been amazed in speaking to people a bit younger than me and a bit singler than me who used stuff like tinder on vacation as a way of meeting people usually romantically? But but not always and and I just think it's a great way to meet people in the place you are. I completely forbid you from swiping people in your hometown while you're on vacation vacation. That is completely unnecessary at does not make any sense at all. Now it's funny. You say that because I was just having a barbecue dinner with a vagabond friend of mine. He's a free spirited bearded guy that basically is on the road almost all the time and he's alone and I was marveling at how he enjoys himself so much alone and he just constantly a uses these relationship as he travels and not necessarily for Romantic hookups purchased. Hey I'm coming into town and wants to get together. And it's a huge bonus for his his Solo globe-trotting to use the relationship APPS. especially if you're the kind of person that has a lot of trouble SM- smiling and ask a question of a stranger. It's a way it's an easy way to meet eight people in. It's become a very normal way to do it seth. Google has been specializing and how to see the world on a budget. Ever since his days as frugal traveler at the New York Times his book is rediscovering travel a guide for the globally curious and he hosts youtube videos on globally curious channel. You know in your book set you talk about how travel is much about your ears as it is about. Your is new taste. Buds music can be a part of our travels if our APPS smartly and it doesn't need to get between us and the local culture right in fact I think One of the things travel mode allegedly does is it. Stops you from listening at least too much to the music. You always listen to and it senses whether you're listening to music from the place where you are and it also has completely unlimited listening to local little radio Local radio is something. We'd never even think about anymore with great podcast like like yours. But when you're in a place I remember driving through South South Dakota and turning on and hearing sort of a native American station talking about political issues on the reservation and I was like well if I turn. This is amazing and I would never have even heard this if I were just listening to my normal podcasts. You know that's a beautiful idea and I've of course when we're in an English speaking country like the British isles. It's obvious it's an and you get that local personality that character even listen to local advertisements and it's all entertaining and adds to your understanding of that culture when you're traveling across southern Spain suncoast suncoast radio. It's for the experts.

We had booked tickets to go to Cartagena and then I found out I was pregnant and and we were very excited but we did cancel our trip because they're very excited about the pregnancy very excited to go to cards to go to. But there's a small chance I guess Zeka there and so we figured we might as well just push it off and I was not feeling very well in the beginning of my pregnancy so the thought of traveling that far it was not that interesting to me however I still want to go there. I WanNa go to Cartagena. I WanNa go to many in Cartagena when you look at pictures of it. Just Seem so romantic. The architecture in the horsedrawn carriages in the cobblestone streets and then it's also near the water and it has handcrafted artisans it. Just the baby sounds loved by the beach. And there's violence you can go to off it and we really did a ton of research urgency especially Cartagena last year. You know what would have been the end of twenty eighteen because we were Gonna Go January twenty nineteen and that seems so long ago that we had planned it seems like longer than than a year ago that we decided to cancel that trip. It is funny to me how some things can come on the list and fourth like for me Columbia again. Not that I would not want to go. I'd be super happy to go but it's just for whatever reason in you know and this is the beauty of making these list. It's almost like a time capsule for this specific moment in real life because when I look back in two thousand nineteen list of the twenty eighth year trae seventeen or what have you always on there right. Yeah so now. I don't know for some reason as we get into. I win centric to another part of the world and it. Just you know that it just kind of spurred up some different feelings and emotions and the thing for me with Columbia. I don't know why because it's still far but because says it's in the northern part of South America I feel emission yet doesn't seem so hard to get to well certainly isn't as certainly isn't as far so it wouldn't be as hard because we look at urgency now is thinking of putting Argentina on the list but it is so far pretty. I mean it's a high sales a hike anyway but my number five is Columbia. All right my number five were were leaving South America for a second. I mean you might have more South America leaving South America for good just a teaser. No more South Americans on my list or South American countries. I'm heading to Europe okay. I am specifically adding to a region of Europe that I have forever wanted to travel through and then I'm going up and going a little not a little more East eastern that but I'm going to the edge basically eastern Europe and we're heading to Bulgaria all area. How if you guys have listened podcast before you know we've got a good friend Mikko WHO's Bulgarian? Oh Carrion who has just kind of indoctrinated us into released me into why Bulgaria so awesome and this is a guy are you travels who knows his stuff so if he tells me that Bulgaria is awesome. It's not just coming from someone who hasn't seen a good amount of the world it means it's awesome and so oh. He is just did an incredible destination. Diary if you guy I mean one of the best we've ever done because he knows everything about Bulgaria but he sold me on hardcore everything from the beautiful capital city of Fia to where he's from and the coast again. We're getting this idea in Varna on the Black Sea and he just the picture picture he paints of Varna especially but Bulgaria as a whole and I just look. I'm like well why wouldn't I want to be super cheap. Black great beaches on the Black Sea really laid back lifestyle and as you just texted me because I said what did you say about the food. They're you know I text him right for those podcast so I could get it right. I'm like you came on the podcast and said something about the food. And he said yes. It says if Mediterranean food had a baby with Arabic food because when you think Eastern Europe you don't generally think amazing food you think heavy media potatoes. He's like Bulgaria. is nothing like that. It's way different. It's a lot of salads ages. Light food so meditating mixed with Arabic that comes from the history of them being conquered by different nations. That had those influences. And so I'm I'm just like wait a second. Wait a second little bit of a diamond in the rough really cheap. You could stay on the on a beach side city of Varna. You can get great good food. Good weather have a friend who knows everything about it. I'm sorry full disclosure. I did not listen to that. PODCAST with Miko. I have talked to Miko about Bulgaria but not as extensively as you have so you have painted the picture just from that little synopsis. That I'm ready to go so okay you ready to go so I'm going to throw it out not to you right here on the podcast then. I might have saw this when you're the host happy. Maybe something a little bit of a player we are planning on going to South Africa. Middle of September. Correct if you look at a map you'll see that. Bulgaria is closer to South Africa than the US you can easily get to Houston bowl. Dole macossa twenty minutes is is direct flights down South Africa. Okay just GONNA throw it out and say maybe stop in August to mid September Bulgaria when it's the best time of year in Varna and then mid September to mid October South Africa. I it's GonNa make you commit now. You're just throwing this out here on the PODCASTS. Getting this isn't live. We could easily cut this out if we want. E followers helped me out go to Bulgaria in August. Why not two months where the kids a lot? But we could do one month one month so it's not crazy. Travel helped me out guys throw to us some love on social media please. Gary sounds rather the Bulgaria South Africa. Bang doesn't necessarily seem like that those would be in the same trip trip but I guess the world is small. All this is that all there is all right my number four we are going to bring it back to South America. I just put my to south. America mentions together one right after the other and that is Peru. Now I I know. Peru is so popular and everybody wants to go to Machu Pichu PUTT. There's a reason for that incredible and people who are still going now now. Even though it's been a top destination trending for the past couple of years. Still say that it's incredible. Well worth it and just kind of life changing going there and experiencing pointing the culture. It's not just about much. Up to though because you know there are other cities and other things to seem pruitt's very large country. So some of the other things that I I would like to see. We've got cousteau which is a beautiful city is used to be the INCA empire capital of the INCA empires. You have all of that unique culture in there and just again artisans like I love to shop local markets and to buy things. I love shopping. Shop full star full. Stop then say especially especially at local markets when we're traveling and you know try really. It's in the name of research. So I should really have a special EPA budget to her shopping locally when we travel because other people want to know where to to find great things. So I'm just throwing that out there on the podcast. You know. Who's with me who who thinks that heather should have a personal travel shopping budget extended? Did you know when when we go to these unique places so Peru. We've got Kuske. Oh we've got Lima and then there's another spot that caught my interest when I was researching Peru and that is something that I do not know how to pronounce but I believe it's called who I could Cina. And that is this desert oasis this and it's just this beautiful city that seems like a mirage. You know like when you are walking through the desert and you're hydrating then all of a sudden you see this gorgeous city. I mean that's what it's like. It's threatened by sand dunes. There's a small lagoon lake in the middle of it and she says little village and I just I think all of these I mean prue has so much to offer. It's not just about Mont.. Up Choose so. My wunderlist is definitely south. American Tim Value. And you're saying North South America. I know I know and those are those are my two countries in. Maybe we can even do them in the same trip Columbia and then in Peru so I don't know maybe not for twenty twenty because we do have a lot plan but sometime in the future. Well now we've got Bulgaria. We we will make it there. I I like how these lists are shaping up because there's not a lot of overlap and it's obviously different region so as you're talking about going to Peru I can see your wanderlust but it's also spurring. I be like yeah I actually do. Love South America WanNa go. There just didn't make my list. I will pull the curtain back a little little bit and tell people that one of the things I do when I don't know how to pronounce on the as I will look it up and I look at that. Yeah these weird youtube videos alike like pronounced dot com. And I'm not saying I always pronounce it right but at least tribe and this one's tough. Yeah it is a little tough but anyway what is your. You're number all right. I'm going to throw a little love to you because I this is a similar to how when you put her guy on yours which has always been on my list. I now I'm throwing something that's usually on your list and not. Oh mind back to you and I don't know why I WANNA go here. I'll just say I want to go go to the Gili Islands. Okay in off the coast of Bali and then I wanna go more remote so if you had east from there you know. The Gillies are east of Bali early. And then you keep going. You used to get more remote to Nusa Tenggara area and there's an island called Florez which I have heard a ton about from Stuart McDonald Donald. Who if anyone is traveling Southeast Asia the absolute best piece of advice? I can give you other than just go is to go to trial fish. Dot Org and Stewart Stewart is the founder of travel fish and the guy knows more about Southeast Asia and all these islands than any human I know knows about any other region like he just knows it so yeah.
