Today, I’m joined by one of the world’s leading travel authors and journalists, Sophy Roberts. Formerly the editor-at-large of Conde Nast Traveller, and Departures Magazine, as well as a columnist at the Financial Times, Sophy’s focus now is primarily on remote parts of the world, reporting on fragile cultures, wildlife conservation and threats to eco-systems.I hope this episode grabs you and transports you to the wild and wonderful ends of our planet. It’s a long haul, feature length episode and a love letter to travel, which will take you to some truly far flung locations from deepest Siberia and wild Papua New Guinea, to the deserts of Chad and the lakes of Kashmir. I really hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.Destination Recap:UzbekistanAryll, Dumfries and Galloway, ScotlandLeger, FranceIrelandEcclefechan, Scottish Borders RussiaDelhi Old Town, IndiaKashmir, IndiaDrive from Kashmir to Ladakh Siberia, RussiaMongoliaNepalNew York City, USANew York Public LibrarySylvia’s, New YorkNihiwatu - Now called Nihi Sumba, IndonesiaHotel Trasierra, Andalucia, SpainChadPapua New GuineaYeotown, SomersetThe Canary IslandsSt Tropez in AugustMozambiqueKolyma, Siberia, RussiaRwandaArctic polesSocotra Island, YemenMississippi River, USA‘The Lost Pianos of Siberia’ by Sophy Roberts, is out now.
