New Zealand with @SheDot.Travels
The Travel Now Podcast

2M ago
A few years ago Saz embarked on an around the world trip which led her to spend over a year in the destination we’re talking about today – New Zealand. About as far as you can possibly get from the UK without a rocket – Elon if you’re listening I’ll have you on the next episode – New Zealand has long been an destination on my bucket list. It’s combination of the great outdoors, English language, and the easy-going nature of the locals, makes it sound like a great place to get lost for a few months. Saz took that one step further, though. In this conversation she reveals how pulling out the rea ..read more

Sailing around the world with children - Patrick Shulte
The Travel Now Podcast
by Luke Richardson
2M ago
I love speaking with people who've made travel a central part of their life. Whether that’s regular trips to various corners of the world, or in the case of today’s guest, spending the last 20 years in near constant motion. Patrick Shulte, who has been blogging about his travel experiences on his long running travel blog Bumfuzzle.com, joins me just before setting off for his next adventure. Patrick isn't planning your regular international trip, however. Patrick and his wife are about to sail around the world for the second time - this time taking their two children along for the ride.  ..read more

Hong Kong
The Travel Now Podcast
by Luke Richardson
2M ago
I loved Hong Kong so much that it became the setting of my second novel. I’ve always loved visiting Asian cities. I love the chaos, the noise, the assault on the senses, the multitude of cultures thrust together in a crazy and interesting place – Hong Kong has all this and more. In this episode, I talk about why the visit inspired me to set my novel there, what to expect should you make a visit there, and I’ll share some extracts from the novel. The podcast is sponsored by Bookitlist.co This podcast is sponsored by book-it-list. If you’re planning a trip to the far east, the middle east, or t ..read more

Podcast host and tour guide Ted Cragg joins me today to talk about his homeland, Canada. Ted hosts the TRAVEL PODCAST THE WORLD SHOW. He talks with to other travel podcasters about their shows, their inspirations and the behind the scenes process that make their shows complete. Ted had me on his show a few weeks ago, and I enjoyed the conversation so much that I wanted to have him to talk to you. During this episode, we talk through a whole fictional trip to eastern Canada, taking in the cities, the wilderness, mountains and lakes. You can tell, during this conversation that I come from a such ..read more

Volunteering with Inlexca
The Travel Now Podcast
by Luke Richardson
2M ago
Inlexca is a non-profit organisation, placing volunteers across Central American and India. In this episode I talk with Diego Colombi, about how Inlexca insures their volunteers are carefully placed, how it’s a beneficial set up for both the volunteer and more importantly the community into which they’re going, the process of becoming a volunteer with Inlexca, and what you should expect, should you be interested.  This conversation is especially interesting as a few weeks back in episode 33 I spoke with Susan Gibson about how to be an amazing volunteer - I feel like this episode continues ..read more

Thailand by Tuk Tuk
The Travel Now Podcast
by Luke Richardson
2M ago
The Tuk Tuk Club run ten-day trips through the largely undiscovered and beautiful highlands of northern Thailand. Bruce Haxton talks with me about how he came up with the idea for the off-the-beaten-track adventure, how his trips support local communities, and what exactly the experience involves.  During my travels there's always been something really fun about travelling by tuk tuk - their bleating noise, the way the drivers always seem to modify them with booming sound systems, and the smell of the city as you pass by. In my experience, they’re as much a part of Thailand as the food, t ..read more

Farm Volunteering with Leah Michelsen
The Travel Now Podcast
by Luke Richardson
2M ago
Leah has travelled the US, Canada and Europe volunteering on organic farms. In this interview she talks about why it's a great way to travel, how it provides a unique perspective on a new place, connects you with great people, and builds up a really good appetite.  I've found every interview I've done on this podcast inspiring. But after talking to Leah, I've actually booked a few days volunteering on a farm here in England. I love the idea of trying something I've never done before, and getting away from my laptop. I'll tell you how I get on in a future episode.  The podcast is spo ..read more

Twenty-five years of travel with Els De Smet
The Travel Now Podcast
by Luke Richardson
2M ago
Based in Belgium where she works as a counsellor for refugees, Els has been regularly taking to the road for the last 25 years. She travels in a very simple style, carrying just one small bag, using public buses, and often staying with the local people she meets on the way. It’s fascinating to me how she travels with absolutely no fear such an open heart. This is the final conversation from my trip to Albania a few weeks ago. As I said at the start of the last episode, one of my favourite things about travel, is the people you meet on the way. There's something totally unique about discussing ..read more

Europe in at Fiat 500 with Dan and Mantha
The Travel Now Podcast
by Luke Richardson
2M ago
Mantha and Dan, seeking a gap year before starting university, set off from England in their Fiat 500 with the aim of exploring Europe. Five months later, 15 counties in, and still only halfway through their trip, we met up in Albania where they've been spending a few days before heading on and into North Macedonia. I absolutely love their dedication travel, their take it as it comes attitude, and how they make the whole thing sound easy. We talk about what it takes to plan a trip like theirs, what things they’ve learned on the road, and why they didn’t choose the gap-year meccas like Southeas ..read more

Public Transport Adventures
The Travel Now Podcast
by Luke Richardson
2M ago
Over the last year, while not travelling very much, I've become interested in what it is I like so much about being away from home.  Why is it, when I'm travelling, I'll happily sit on a bus for 10 hours, yet 20 minutes of traffic back from the shops drives me crazy?  I think that's because when you're on holiday or travelling you see things differently. It's like a new paradigm, or mindset - I'm calling it an "Adventure Mindset".  In this podcast, I talk about two ways that adventure mindset has resulted in really interesting travel experiences, and discuss how I'm trying to us ..read more
