Welcome to Episode 24 of my “Travel Tales From Beyond The Brochure” podcast.
This week’s podcast episode, brought to you from a slightly damp Sheffield, is all about whether travel changes depending on how old you are – if the way you travel at the age of 20 is the same as the way you travel at, say, 40, in terms of travel style, accommodation, food, destinations, etc.
I don’t talk a lot about travelling at ages older than I am, but you get the drift. Most of it is comparing how my travel has(n’t) changed over time. I’ll probably do a follow-up episode about this at some point when my feelings change again.
Topics discussed in this episode then include:
- How to pronounce the placename ‘Albany’
- Weather, lockdown, and beer update
- Another marginally unsuccessful Sunday morning run
- I don’t want a job in banking!
- TIL things about South African history that really have me worried about humanity
- The stereotypes of travel at different ages
- Places are popular for a reason
- Alexei’s contribution: How his travels have changed over time
- Changing ages lead to changing tastes
- How things you like may not even exist until you get older
- Amanda’s first contribution: How travel has changed, especially since she became a parent
- Risk, and how you deal with it as you age
- Amanda’s second contribution: How the concept of travel itself has changed since her first trip
- Has my travel style changed since my first trip?
- Where I’ve slept, through the years
- How I’ve eaten through the years
- Have my destinations changed through the years?
