Description

All the Shit I’ve Learned Abroad is a travel podcast focussed on everything and anything related to travel. Hosts Steph Paige and Andrea Gillis, both now Canadian expats with Steph living in Australia and Andrea in the UK, come together remotely each week to record episodes based on their own travel experiences (good and bad!) ranging from losing passports, missing flights, and solo travel.

Andrea, a recently turned Brit, lives and works in London with her roots in radio broadcasting, previously working as a radio producer and on-air presenter in Canada. Now in England, she works in the ad-tech industry and travels around Europe whenever a free weekend permits.

Steph now lives in Melbourne after spending the past four years traveling around the world. She both runs her own Project Management firm and works as a Project Manager in the entertainment industry for a major recording artist.

All The Shit I’ve Learned Abroad is recorded in London and Melbourne with new episodes released weekly.

Revenge Travel

Revenge Travel

2020-08-0731:22

"Revenge travel" is the trend of mass booking exorbitant or a multitude of trips, causing travel to bounce back once people emerge after weeks and months of citywide lockdowns. With this, countries, airlines and other travel sectors are marketing very specifically to the 'revenge travellers'. Will you be a revenge traveller (hint: most likely) and how might it affects the plans you will be making?  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

As an avid traveler, she shares some eye opening experiences with us where she’s experienced racial discrimination during her travels.
