Episode #019

Callum from college. If you read this. Hello. Quick story – Callum isn’t the bloke on the podcast today, but it is the name of a chap who made me see life differently. Here’s how – when you finish education, your class goes on to future ventures: some study further, others get jobs, several become unemployed, a few do stuff out of the norm, and this was the case for Callum – the lad went to Sri Lanka! On his return, I sent him a message, “how was it?”  His answer, “it changed my life.”  And that reply took me to Tanzania. I came back with a girlfriend (who only lasted a few weeks, she went to India), Swahili slang, stories, and the travel bug. The same ‘bug’ took me back to Africa – twice. Similarly, the gent on the podcast, Ignacio, found inspiration from another too – he went out one Sunday and ended up on a poetic journey across Europe! I wonder, how’s he still doing it?

Boom. The second time I got robbed, I was happy. Why? I put into practice what went wrong on the first bout. Though, I must have a face for these things. It happened again. At this point, I now consider myself a professional. Still alive. Still here. Funnily enough, each moment is because of chicken: maybe I should become vegan? Jokes aside, June, have you ever been mugged?

Italy. Before you guess, yes, you’re right. This episode took me longer than a day to build. Rome. A capital hotspot for people like me or you, and probably the person who lives next door. But what happens when you meet the neighbour, and they’re from Rome? I guess you record a podcast together. Meet mine. He’s called Rich.

Episode #015

The closest I’ve ever been to Belgium is when I nearly ended up in Antwerp when I was having a dissertation breakdown. Thankfully, I passed my degree, but unfortunately, I didn’t make the trip. Four years on, I can’t remember the name of my thesis, but I will remember the name of the Belgian folk dancer who is on the podcast today (even if the beer we’re drinking is 8.4%), meet Julie.
