Welcome to Episode 37 of my “Travel Tales From Beyond The Brochure” podcast.
In this episode I talk about that most seasonal of subjects: snow. [It’s so terribly British to talk about the weather, isn’t it?]. We discuss a little about how the UK fails to handle snow properly, some of the joys of travelling in it, the comparison between holidaying in snow and living in a snowy climate, and why the UK isn’t very good at the Winter Olympics.
Specific topics discussed in this episode include:
- This fortnight’s metaphorical frogs
- My appearance on the Sounds Fake But Okay Podcast
- UK Census Day 2021
- Snow in the West Midlands region of England
- The UK does have some higher land though!
- Growing up with snow
- Sliding down snowy hills
- “I’d walk through the snow barefoot”
- “If it’s not on ice, we’re no good at it”
- Daily snow tasks for home and school
- Experiencing snow for the first time
- Snowy places I have set foot in. Mainly Poland, though.
- Snow in Japan
- The extremes of the world – Svalbard and Antarctica
