Ep 5 - 2022 travel trends, tourist-friendly graveyards & Bulgaria (top tourist tips)
What are the big travel trends for 2022? We're so glad you asked! We discuss them, along with a chat about the world's most beautiful graveyards (yes, really) and why you should see them before you, er, die. We then invite Bulgaria In Your Pocket publisher and editor, Paromita Sanatani, into our fantasy departure lounge to ask her all about her adopted home country and why you should go there. After kicking off the episode with our Where in the World quiz (answer at the end of the show), we chat about staycations, upgrading your vacay, slow travel and letting the train take the strain in our review of this year's predicted travel trends. In our Top 5 slot we look into historyhit.com's list of the five most beautiful cemeteries in the world - Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia, USA; La Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Prague’s Old Jewish Cemetery, Czech Republic; Highgate Cemetery, London and Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. But who is buried there, why should you go, have you ever been, what do Heidi and Andrea think of these picks and have either of them ever scribed Smiths lyrics on Oscar Wilde's tomb? And who do we meet in our fantasy VIP departure lounge? Why, it's travel guru and Bulgaria expert, Paromita Sanatani, who tells us about her journey from India via the UK to her adopted home in Bulgaria, where she's lived for almost 30 years. So she's perfectly placed to tell us all about Bulgaria's major attractions, why it's the perfect location for skiers as well as sun-seekers, and what she likes, and doesn't like, about cities including Sophia, Plovdiv and Veliko Tarnovo. Don't book your trip without listening to Paromita's advice first. SUBSCRIBE to our podcast, you know you want to!
