Some Thanks For The People Who Help Us Travel

On this Thanksgiving week, a big thanks to all the people who work tough jobs to keep the traveling public going places.

The most important parts of travel are often the parts you don't see.

Without ticket agents, baggage handlers, ramp workers, hotel housekeeping, museum staff, dock workers, ship crews and more, we'd all be flailing.

This week, in honor of Thanksgiving, we observe what is becoming a Going Places tradition. KNKX travel expert Matthew Brumley and host Ed Ronco say thanks to the people who make it all work.

We want to hear your story. Tell us about a time someone helped you, or a moment you were grateful for someone who went the extra mile to make travel work for you. You can leave your thoughts in the comments.


"Going Places" is 88.5's weekly exploration of travel. Our travel expert, Matthew Brumley, is co-founder of Earthbound Expeditions on Bainbridge Island, which provides small group travel to clients including KNKX. Never miss an episode again.
