Welcome to the Active Travel Adventures podcast where you'll find inspiration to lead a bigger life through adventure travel.

On each show we explore exciting multi-day active vacations from around the world where you have to MOVE!  You'll have to hike, bike, paddle, horseback ride (sometimes in combination) to propel yourself to the next destination.

If you're tired of typical vacations and are looking for a more authentic experience by exploring the landscapes and meeting the locals on your vacation, then this is your podcast!

All adventures will be doable for someone reasonably fit (I'm a 58 year old woman and I have to be able to do them).

Be sure to visit to see photos and get more details, plus you can download the FREE Travel Planners for each destination!  These handy summaries summarize the tips and provide all sorts of helpful links to help you plan your trip.  You get them automatically if you subscribe to the newsletter.

Kit interviews Umberto di Venosa, founder of Follow the Camino, a tour company focused entirely on assisting 'pilgrims' plan and execute their Camino journey.  Umberto gives us expert insight on what you need to think about when planning your El Camino.  These can also be applied to any long distance walk or pilgrimage.

We discuss important considerations like:

  • which trail best suits you and the many paths available
  • what time of year to go and the weather
  • which Camino 'personality' best fits you
  • accommodations and luggage transfer
  • getting the right mindset for a Camino
  • community on the Camino
  • why the journey is more important than the distance
