Ever wanted to spend time in a bomb shelter? Would  you pay to sleep in one? You know where this is going – today we talk to a travel blogger that spent several nights in a well fortified, cozy room in Jerusalem. We also take a ferry from Port Angeles Washington – traverse the Straight of Juan de Fuca – and land in a charming neighborhood in Victoria British Columbia. While there we stop and pick some roadside blackberries, then head to the tasting room of a local cidery. To top things off – Donna shares her wish list – a – shall we say – “elevated” AirBnB in Brazil.
