On this week’s episode of The Adventure Podcast we talk about a different kind of adventure travel. We welcome Tamar Lowell of Access Culinary Trips to the show to talk about the growing popularity of foodie travel, which mixes culture, history, and of course great food, to deliver a different kind of travel experience. Tamar tells us about how her company’s itineraries blend traditional travel activities with cooking classes, wining tastings, and lots and lots of great food.
Before jumping into our interview we first chat about the latest adventure news, with updates on the winter climbing season in the Himalaya, the ongoing feud between Colin O’Brady and Nat Geo, and the impact that the coronavirus might have on the spring climbing season on Everest. Later, my cohost Dave Adlard and I share some pieces of gear that we’ve been testing, with Dave offering his thoughts on a set of Nike running tights, while I review the new HeadLamp 200 from BioLite.
