"Why am I going back?" "The why of the trip comes first ..." "In America, I learned to smile."We have started recording the stories of the travelers we meet. Whether travel stories spring from joy or sorrow, result in change or status quo, they always give vicarious pleasure. In one episode, Freya explains why she never wants two ovens. In another, Nigel takes his son to Ghana to teach him the meaning of wealth. Ophirah has made not one but two pilgrimages to Liverpool. A pair of refugees recount their escape from Syria. We hope listening like this evaporates borders.STARTING MARCH 2016. Subscribe in iTunes→
All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.
