What do you do when you really want to travel…but can’t? You could always do a few virtual tours from home, make a few international meals, or check out a few travel movies. But when you’ve done all of that, you might want to turn to listening to a few podcasts. And we’ve got the perfect ones that any good travel lover will adore. Check out the following and tell us which one you will listen to first!
1. Travel With Rick Steves
One of the most well-known people in the travel industry is Rick Steves who is a travel writer, author and television personality. He is known for going deep into the history and details of countries he visit and yet simplifies travel for anyone experiencing that country for the first time. His advice is always shrewd, practical and built upon the idea that in order to really appreciate a country, you have to understand its culture. Rick accomplishes all of this by sharing the importance of exploring the less touristy sites and cities. His weekly podcast covers topics related to culture, people, and, of course, travel.
2. Amateur Traveler
This show, hosted by Chris Christensen, is unique in that each one is dedicated to a particular destination that you’ll explore. He gives you a one-week itinerary of what to see, do and eat. With all of us having more time at home, this is an excellent podcast to listen to for those of you who are already planning some travel for next year or those of you who want to learn more about the destinations on your dream travel list.
3. Armchair Explorer
In this show, you’ll follow travel writer Aaron Miller and his guests on their adventures full of action and thrills around the world. The description for the show says it best: “Each episode is cut documentary style and set to music and cinematic effects to create an immersive storytelling experience. No long-winded interviews, just straight to the heart of the action.” Dramatic music and good storytelling? Sign us up!
4. Zero to Travel
Host Jason Moore interviews fellow explorers on their unforgettable trips while giving practical travel advice. You’ll hear about great adventures like walking across America or hearing about visually impaired cyclists going on a 16,000-mile journey from Argentina to Alaska. You’ll also love the philosophical vibe of the show as Jason and those he interviews tackle questions around why we travel and the value it brings to his guests.
5. The Big Travel Podcast
The Big Travel Podcast features well-known people and their travel stories. You’ll hear from politicians, philanthropists, actors, musicians, authors, sports players and much more. There are also stories from those who are living more non-glamorous lives as well. Either way, you’ll be in for treat.
