Last Sunday, in a valiant attempt to stop thinking about the real world (it’s March 2020, when Covid-19 is sending us batty), I sat down at my dining table with a huge pile of my travel journals from over the years to find some interesting stories to share. It was amazing fun – and I encourage all of you to do the same! This episode of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast is a summary of what I learnt at my dining table. It really was like travelling without leaving home – the best we can do in these times! One of the stories involved travelling to Russia with my Mum, and I love this photo of us on Red Square, in front of my very favourite building, St Basil’s Cathedral – a very special memory.
Show notes: Episode 180 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast
Fourth Anniversary – Travel Journal Memory Lane
Normally a podcast anniversary is a purely joyous occasion – I’ve been putting out The Thoughtful Travel Podcast consistently for four whole years now! – but in the times of Covid-19 it’s certainly a bittersweet time to be talking about anything connected to travel. I debated long and hard about how to celebrate and then realised that, stuck as I am at home, it was finally time to take a deep dive into my huge stack of travel journals documenting past trips. I hoped to find some gems and lessons to share with you all – and I think I did, or perhaps I just spent a completely self-indulgent day in my own memories – I’ll let you be the judge! There’ll be photos and more at the show notes. Enjoy!
