    Sir Michael Palin - Long Haul

    Sir Michael Palin - Long Haul

    Sir Michael Palin - where do you start! He’s a legendary comedian, part of pop culture history as one of Monty Python. He’s a BAFTA-winning actor, a best-selling author, and one of our most loved travel documentarians and travel writers. His journeys across the world, beginning with Around the World in 80 Days, followed by Pole to Pole, Full Circle, Sahara, Himalaya, Brazil and more, were a key part of how many of us discovered the world growing up, through his eyes, and through his warmth and curiosity with whoever he encountered along the way. 
    From Saharan Africa and the Amazon, to western Scotland and North Korea, it was such an honour to hear the travel diaries of Sir Michael Palin. I hope you enjoy them.

    Beautiful Destinations founder, Jeremy Jauncey

    Beautiful Destinations founder, Jeremy Jauncey

    Jeremy Jauncey is the founder and CEO of the world’s largest online travel community, Beautiful Destinations, which has a combined social following of over 25 million people.
    The jaw-dropping photos on Beautiful Destinations’s Instagram feed have provided me with endless travel inspiration and undoubtedly influenced some of my travel choices. 
    And what was once a passion project has become a global business, with Beautiful Destinations offices based out of the US, UK and Asia. 
    While it might look like Jeremy spends most of his time being photographed in some of the most epic locations around the world - meditating on North Island in the Seychelles, hugging giant pandas in China, posing on a horse rearing in front of a pyramid in Egypt - most of the time he is actually consulting with major travel brands and tourist boards, helping them to tell inspiring stories through social first content.
    This conversation gives a deep insight into the business of travel and travel marketing, of the power of imagery, and the power of human connection. 
    From New Zealand and Japan to the Philippines and Norwegian Fjordland, these are the travel diaries of Jeremy Jauncey. 
    Destination recap:
    - Perth, Scotland 
    - New Zealand 
    - Colombia
    - Panama
    - Rwanda
    - Singapore
    - New York City, USA
    - Tokyo, Japan
    - Palawan, Borocay and El Nido, Philippines
    - Siargao, Philippines
    - Scandinavia, in particular Norway including Fjordland and Lofoten Islands 
    You can follow Jeremy on Instagram @jeremyjauncey and of course @beautifuldestinations, too.

    It’s the start of Season 3, and who better to join me to celebrate than Ben Fogle? Ben is not only an award-winning broadcaster, fronting many of our most loved TV shows - he is also one of the UK’s most prolific adventurers.
