So, did you see my little not so subtle announcement on Friday? I’m starting a podcast – exciting!
I wanted a podcast that talked to the most vibrant and interesting female travellers of today.
I’ve been searching for a travel podcast that stepped away from romanticising solo female travel and gave the cold, hard reality of what it’s really like to travel as a woman. I also wanted one with advice for wannabe travellers on a budget, with achievable travel ideas that get us out as much as possible, without sleeping in a bush (I genuinely did that once, in Valencia, Spain).
Also, inspirational travel advice from women who work full time, who have children, who have responsibilities at home and who’ve overcome personal difficulties to get out there and travel.
So, I decided to make it myself.
So She Travels podcast
We won’t be over glorifying adventures, or travelling under someone else’s steam, but we are normal-ish women who’ve worked out how travel can feature more prominently in our lives.
Each week my guest and I will choose a destination, a few topics, and roll with it.
Listen on Spotify
The first few chats are done. You can expect tips on living as an ex pat, getting a job in travel, working as a tour guide, using travel to cope with grief, safety tips for women, toilets abroad, and travelling with babies. Also, how to travel solo when you’re in a relationship, dating abroad and visiting traditionally ‘dangerous’ countries.
For this first series I’ll be talking to my favourite female travel bloggers, not about blogging, but their travels. And mainly, their travels before they became travel bloggers. And who knows what could happen for series 2 (if there is one!).
So She Travels starts for real tomorrow (Tuesday 26th February), so make sure you subscribe on your favourite Podcast listener!
