    St Helena: A breath of fresh air?

    Have you heard of St Helena? What is it like to visit? 
    St Helena Island is one of the remotest Islands on Earth. It is a subtropical paradise where the mountainous terrain and micro-climates create an astounding diversity of landscapes all within a few minute’s drive.
    On St Helena, there is so much to explore. Yet most people aren't even aware of its existence!
    On this episode of the FOTBOT podcast, Events Coordinator Reem Ibrahim is joined by the Head of Tourism at the Government of St Helena Matt Joshua.
