It's a scream! We start our spine-tinglingly special Halloween episode with a warning that Andrea plays a prank on Heidi during our Where in the World game and Heidi (literally) jumps out of her chair. If you don't like screams fast-forward but it is very, very funny.   Then we make our way to Whitby - the isolated harbour town on England's north east coast that was the inspiration for Bram Stoker's 1897 novel, Drac...

Go Yinzers! We devote this episode to Pittsburgh, PA, a.k.a. Steel City Pennsylvania.  After Andrea's fab visit there in Spring 2022 we knew we had to deep dive into this fantastic place, with our usual Where In The World brain-teaser (clue: the answer is not Pittsburgh) and a departure lounge chat with the fact- and fun-filled Corrie from Walk The Burgh Tours.  Our Top 5 this episode is devoted to Only in Pittsburgh attraction...

Calling all Dancing Queens, we think you'll love our fABBAulous chat with ABBA The Museum's Creative Director and Curator, Ingmarie Halling (she also used to tour with ABBA overseeing their costumes, make-up and hair). Ingmarie knows more about the Swedish supergroup than anyone else (apart from Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn and Anna-Frid of course) and our chat with her comes just as ABBA Voyage arrives in London. Find out all abo...

We mark the 110th anniversary of the sinking of RMS Titanic with a tour of Titanic Belfast, the £multi-million visitor attraction built on the launch site of the ill-fated ship. The maritime theme continues with our ever-present segments designed to test even the hardiest of Titanoraks. Can Andrea guess Heidi's particularly abstract Where In The World destination? And which of the other Top Five Titanic-linked locations has And...

In episode 7, the queens of travel chat castles. The ones we've been to and the ones we want to visit. We also ponder what exactly makes a castle anyway (it may be something to do with turrets). We  take in everywhere from Glenapp Castle in Scotland and Portmerion's Castell Deudraeth in Wales, along with Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany, the inspiration for Disney's classic castle and Bran Castle in Romania, famous for ...

Football special! We celebrate the Beautiful Game in this episode with a tour of George Best's childhood home, now open as a short-term holiday let in Belfast. Tour guide Peter McCabe tells us about the house where George kicked his first ball before we settle down for the night in the boyhood bedroom of the World's Greatest Footballer.* We thoroughly recommend this unique visitor attraction for both tours and overnight sta...

What are the big travel trends for 2022? We're so glad you asked! We discuss them, along with a chat about the world's most beautiful graveyards (yes, really) and why you should see them before you, er, die. We then invite Bulgaria In Your Pocket publisher and editor, Paromita Sanatani, into our fantasy departure lounge to ask her all about her adopted home country and why you should go there.  After kicking off the episode...

Listeners of a delicate disposition, cover your ears now, because in our final episode of 2021, we discuss the world's rudest, funniest place names, including the village of Muff in Donegal, Ireland and Twatt in the Scottish Orkney islands. Inspired by the Rude Road Trip around the UK, undertaken by brothers Andy and Magnus Tait in 2019, we chat about naughty nomenclature, including Sandy Balls holiday resort in England, Pig Tu...

Welcome to Episode 3. We play another Where In The World guessing game - answer at the end of the episode - and this time Heidi doesn't cheat (that we know of!) We chat about Andrea's jaunt to the most northerly place in Ireland, Malin Head - which, in Irish geo-political terms, despite being the most northerly place in Ireland, is officially in the South. Of course, she had the most northerly pint in Ireland while there! F...

Buckle up for episode 2 in which we have another Where in the World destination for you to guess. We reveal the location at the end of the show.  We chat about cruises and Andrea's summer 2021 jaunt on Celebrity APEX, and we discuss the Top 5 road trips as chosen by National Geographic - but what do Heidi & Andrea think of Nat Geo's choices? Did they stall or hit top gear?  Then we invite the fantastic adventure ambassa...

We hit the runway with our first ever Where in the World game. 5 clues and you have to guess the location. The answer is revealed at the end of the show. We also chat about what we like and don’t like in hotel rooms. What’s your hotel bug bear? Or your 5-star sweet spot? Do you love a pool with a view? We discuss the global top 5 swimming pools, as listed by a leading international authority. Will you agree? And we chat with Yuri B...
