Uncommon Destinations – Episode 157 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast

What’s the most unusual place you’ve visited? And do you strive to visit the more uncommon destinations? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with heading to France or Italy on a trip, but I really believe there’s something quite special about heading to the less-visited corners of the globe. I love not knowing as much about a destination – having few or no expectations is a sure-fire route to some interesting experiences!

In this episode of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast, I am lucky enough to speak to three travellers who have visited some particularly uncommon destinations and had really interesting stories to tell about them. They’ve got me quite inspired!

Uncommon Destinations

Visiting places that not many people go to is a special joy for me – I love not knowing much about a place and honestly, I feel a bit proud to tell people if I’ve been somewhere uncommon. I’m probably not alone in that feeling! In Episode 157 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast, I speak with three travellers who’ve spent time in more uncommon destinations recently and loved their experiences.

First I speak with Liz Green who found herself visiting Kazakhstan when her son moved there for a stint with his job. From not knowing much at all about it to absolutely loving the experience, Liz’s story has definitely convinced me to visit!

Next, I talk with Eva Westerling who has spent time in perhaps one of the least commonly visited countries at the moment – Iraq. Eva didn’t go there for a tourist visit but rather as part of her job, but she still managed to do a little sightseeing around Erbil in the Kurdish area and has some interesting tales to tell about it. 

Finally, I chat with Justin Watson who has visited quite a number of uncommon destinations – he’s soon headed to Ethiopia and Djibouti, so I’ll have to get him back on to chat about those two! – but in this episode, we discuss his trip to Bhutan.
