Shepherd traveled the world and often spoke of those trips
Shep loved to travel.
In addition to traveling throughout the United States
 he visited many foreign countries as well.
Below is a listing of some of those trips abroad.

During his November 7, 1964 Limelight Broadcast about his recent trip to meet with the Beatles, Shep mentions (in jest?) that he uses the alias Charles Follensby Apperson when traveling.

According to 2-13-57 V.Voice column: "Shep is off to Europe this week for a month-long broadcasting tour from four major cities over there."
Another article in March 16, 1957 Billboard explains how Shep made a bet he could have a ball in Europe on $100 and the process of KLM airlines flying his shows back to NY each week.
