Episode description:

In this episode of The Internationalist, host Julio Bruno sits down with Sharron Livingston, founder and managing editor of The Travel Magazine.

In this in-depth conversation, Sharron and Julio touch upon the heatwave that took over London, which saw record temperatures of 40 degrees and was the hottest place in the world for a few hours. 

Sharron looks back on her journey of becoming a  writer and setting up her own typist company in a search for freedom. She reveals how a trip to Calais to buy wine inspired her to write a pocket-sized guide, which after giving it to her family and friends, ignited her passion for travel writing and granted her the freedom she was searching for. 

 Julio and Sharron discuss how travelling the world helps you feel free and how budget airlines have made travelling accessible for everyone. Sharron discloses why her first trip to Calais is the most memorable one, reveals her expert travel tips, and explains why it is important to respect your fellow travellers. 

Together, they analyse the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the travel industry and how this factor, combined with Brexit, plays a role in the “travel chaos” currently occurring.
