What Is Your Travel Podcast About?

I want to take you on my road trips around the world so you can get a real sense of what it’s like to travel/backpack, especially as a solo woman traveller. (No Instagram filtered to f**k photos here! lol).

Series 1 is kicking off with my first backpacking trip way back in 1993! So you will also get to time travel too! However, I give you up to date tips on each episode for when COVID 19 ever ends!

It is chronological order, and each episode is about one destination.

This trip to Africa covers over 30 000 miles, lasted 16 months (then I moved to the UK) and we go to 25 countries!

Where Can I Listen To Your Podcast?

You can listen to it right here! Or I can be found on most audio apps like:

Spotify logo
Apple podcasts logo

Google podcasts logo

When Do New Episodes Come Out?

Every other Thursday a new episode (& destination) is out! So make sure you subscribe on your preferred listening app so you don’t miss a stop along the way!

Why Did You Start Your Travel Podcast?

Several reasons really.

All of my friends (and many people I have met) have told me I need to write a book but I would have to write many books to cover all of my travels! So I thought why not start a travel podcast instead, especially as I love telling travel stories.

I hope that I can offer travel advice to solo women travellers and inspire them (and you) that it’s never too late to live your travel dreams! You just have to do it!

I also hope to inspire people who have chronic illnesses (like myself) and disabilities that you too can travel!

My motto is…

You are going to be sick wherever you are, so you might as well be on a beach, in the jungle, up a mountain, or sightseeing around a new city than stuck at home!”

Doing what you love usually makes you feel better too!

And lastly just to entertain you with my travel stories and adventures! Especially now when most of us are stuck in isolation, this way you can still ‘virtually’ travel with me!

How Did You Decide To Go On This Epic Africa Trip?

Well you are just going to have to listen to this episode! 😉

HINT: It wasn’t my bloody idea and I didn’t leave solo (although I did end up solo travelling after a few months).
