Silver Travel on the radio

Travel Talk

Presented by Jennie Carr from Silver Travel Advisor featuring destinations experts who shared their real experiences from around the world as well as some well-known names from the world of entertainment and travel writing.

Happily, the Silver Travel podcast has been created for Boom Radio, where Jennie is once again broadcasting on a station with two of her favourite DJs, David Hamilton and Graham Dene. Their holiday tales below are hilarious.
