Entertaining, sure; Informative, not so much
4 November 2019 | by wormsrcool-534-210331See all my reviews

This show used to be a perfect blend of informative travel advice and comedic value, but recently has become solely the latter.

A number of recent episodes have featured destinations I've recently visited; Little to no mention is given to main attractions or highly regarded restaurants, but rather to 'quirky' attractions that only the 1% who have an abundance of time would partake in.

Take the most recent episode, Kraków, for example. Half a day wasted in a noddy car excursion, where even Richard comments on the pointlessness of their visit to a soviet war location. Two hours spent on a bread making class, where again Richard comments about the lack of involvement in a so called 'class'. Perhaps their only relevant and useful content was their visit to the Wieska salt mines, which is a must if visiting Kraków!

Should someone spending 48 hours in a top european city entertain over half of the suggestions in this episode? Absolutely not. There are far more exciting and relevant things to see and do in this city that could easily be covered in 30 'minz', and unfortunately this applies to most, if not all, of the recent episodes of Travel Man.

Moral of the story is, watch Travel Man for some light hearted humour, but ignore any of Richard's suggestions and organise your visit with Trip Advisor.
