Very low quality content, just 2 guys chatting to each other the whole time and no useful information really!
The course content consists entirely of headshots of two people talkng about their experience for an hour. They seem like nice guys. But there is no structure, no usable notes, maps, or other printables. It seems like they just thought they would make a vlog while travelling and call it a course. That's alright if you don't call it a course in my view.
I think it would be advantageous to include more detail as to the places you have personally visited & how you arrived there if they were less travelled destinations. (Include a few more personalized pics of the process) Your reviews are too general. Ricky has a lot of interesting things to say but he should slow it down a little. No matter how may times I replayed certain parts, I could not understand what he said & yes, English is my first language. :) Ex: Bhutan is the world's most....? Happy Trails you two!
I have been to 90 countries including all that were mentioned as well as the the points of interest . I just wanted to hear about these gentlemen's experiences, so am enjoying their presentation. As I am now 79 years old, I will not likely be going back to Asia so am not taking the course for tips.
