Today, we are delighted to announce the launch of our brand new travel podcast, The Rough Guide to Everywhere.
The series is all about sharing untold travel stories. The kind of stuff you'd tell your friends when you return from a trip, but wouldn't dream of publishing in a guidebook. It is hosted by Rough Guides travel editor, Greg Dickinson.
In this first episode, Just Like Riding a Bicycle, we talk to two people who have cycled huge lengths of the planet, fifty years apart. Legendary travel writer Dervla Murphy shares stories from her 1963 solo cycle from Ireland to India, disclosing how she accidentally became an arms trader in Afghanistan. And twenty-something adventurer Charlie Walker tells of the scrapes and psychological shifts that he experienced during a four-year cycle around the world.
In future episodes of The Rough Guide to Everywhere we'll be hearing from our team of intrepid travel writers, with dispatches from across the globe – whether it be a buffalo round-up in South Dakota or a camel market in Rajasthan.
To make sure you don't miss an episode, you can subscribe now on iTunes or wherever you listen to your podcasts. And if you fancy an immediate podcast hit after tuning in to The Rough Guide to Everywhere, check out this list of our favourite podcasts to listen to while travelling.
