One of the best things we can do for ourselves while we’re stuck in this crazy lock-down due to Coronavirus is thinking ahead – planning and dreaming. It’s important to keep hope and looking to the future. This seems like it will last forever but it won’t. Schools will reopen, libraries will welcome us with open arms once again. Restaurants will have dining rooms where can eat once again.

Most importantly, we’ll be able to spend time with loved ones in person again.

Until then, we can keep up that armchair traveling and dreaming of places far away. And one of the best ways to do that is through listening to some amazing podcasts. Here are the best travel ones around.

  1. Green on the Go – A sustainable travel podcast
  2. Do No Harm – A sustainable and ethical travel podcast
  3. The Thought Card – A financially savvy travel podcast
  4. Andy Steves Travel Podcast – Stories of travel impacting travelers
  5. Women On the Road – Featuring solo women traveler stories of the van life
  6. Chronicles Abroad – A storytelling podcast of life location independent
  7. Dirtbag Diaries – Stories of the outdoors
  8. Airplane Mode by Away – Business travel and industry topics & travel wellness
  9. The New Paris Podcast – All about Paris and travel
  10. On She Goes – A podcast by and for women of color in travel
  11. The Switchback Kids – Adventures in national parks
  12. Wild Ideas Worth Living – REI’s podcast interviewing people who impact the world as they travel

And, if you happen to have any interest in historical travel tales and travelogues, you might enjoy my own short episodes (less than 10 minutes each) on the Jerrie Mock Podcast. From March 18 to April 18, 2020, I’m releasing new episodes each day to commemorate her journey to becoming the first woman to fly around the world.
