004 Near & Far: Planning Travel, Warrenpoint & the French Road Trip 2021
So I got to thinking... when does planning choke your travel plans and when does it create the conditions for spontaneity?  Wide awake with my usual hay fever, I find that the NEAR (the gorgeous town of Warrenpoint in the North of Ireland) is as good a place to travel, film and enjoy the sites as the FAR (the French Road Trip 2021), which seems to take a lot more planning!  And yes, there is some technical geekery in this particular podcast, but it's brief, I promise!  You can find the films I mention here on my YouTube Channel.  To follow me on social media, all the links are here: Thanks for listening!

002 Where on Earth: Reaching Adelaide - Pamela Terry
Pamela Terry is entirely her own person, her story asking us how we (and she) define ourselves in relation to place; time; other people; the identity formed by everyday communities in which we participate.  Her story is everyday but determinedly NOT everyday. I've found her to be an exceptional person to meet. And she still is!
