Travel is sometimes like a box of chocolates—you never know what you’re going to get. In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we share stories of places that blew us away, and those that didn’t live up to the hype.

We want to hear your stories about the places you’ve visited that far exceeded—or failed—to meet your expectations. Give us a call at 315-992-7902 and leave a message telling us your name and story. (Just so you know, our mailbox will cut you off after two minutes so please call again if you get disconnected) You can also record a voice memo and email it to us at

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
