Women Who Travel Podcast

PODCAST: WOMEN WHO TRAVEL

Being a parent right now is hard. Many are juggling work, the endless childcare needed Summer holidays, their families' health and safety, and so much more. And while a trip to the beach with the kids—or better yet, a child-free getaway—would usually bring peace of mind and a modicum of relaxation, the planning of these things these days comes with new levels of stress and confusion. Where can you go where kids will have enough space to play and just be kids? How far can you get on a road trip with kids without stopping at a rest stop where risks increase? Is going with another family a good idea? The questions go on and on.

As a Condé Nast Traveler production, they have the very best access to the real experts when it comes to family travel that works for everyone, even when we are all facing these new challenges together. Exploring the world with our children and seeing things through their eyes is one of the greatest joys but if you are daunted by the prospect then this podcast is for you.

 

 

BOOK: TO SHAKE THE SLEEPING SELF

Jedidiah Jenkins' New York Times bestseller comes highly recommended by Adele (yes, the Adele, no last name needed). If it's good enough for her (and millions of others), it's good enough for us!

A fascinating memoir of adventure, failure, and lessons learned while bicycling the 14,000 miles from Oregon to Patagonia. On the eve of turning thirty, terrified of being sucked into a life he didn't choose, Jedidiah Jenkins quit his dream job and spent the next sixteen months cycling from Oregon to Patagonia. He chronicled the trip on Instagram, where his photos and profound reflections on life soon attracted hundreds of thousands of followers and got him featured by National Geographic and The Paris Review. In this unflinchingly honest memoir, Jed narrates the adventure that started it all: the people and places he encountered on his way to the bottom of the world, and the internal journey that prompted it--the question of what it means to be an adult; his struggle to reconcile his sexual identity with his conservative Christian upbringing; and his belief in travel as a way to "wake us up" to our lives back home. As he writes in his inspiring search for wonder and a life he could believe in, "It's not about the bike. It's about getting out of your routine--and that could look like anything."
