Amateur Traveller host Chris Christensen focuses his attentions on specific travel destinations and their certain appeal. Each episode is around 40 minutes to an hour long and centres on a particular country or experience – such as the sprawling national parks of Wyoming to a two-week itinerary for New Zealand – and speaking to people who have extensive knowledge of that destination.
Flight Of Fancy
Travel journalist Ben Groundwater gives us bite-sized, 30-minute episodes on everything and everything you’d ever want to hear in a travel podcast. Each week he interviews a different travel professional, who’ll talk through experiences from dangerous border crossings to the most difficult destinations to travel to (but are still worth it).
