Travel partner wanted for our own Mike Palin adventure! by stephenPaul on 28 September 2006 2:09pm
 
Calling all you adventure buffs out there. My name is Stephen and I work freelance at the BBC, writing comedy (badly) and presenting travelogues on BBC Radio Four - no I am not hugely successful, but my journeys thus far accross India on the sometimes comical story of the Enfield Bullet motorcycle and more arduous pursuits up the Himalaya on the look out for vultures, have been kindly broadcast on the BBC (they're are a nice lot) and even won critical acclaim. Now with my own recording equipment and foolhardy confidence, I plan to start my own 'un-commissioned' radio journeys, on seperate trips: one around South America and the other; north and south east asia: from the birthplace of the Ganges to anywhere else across asia that comes to mind. Visiting the world of spiritualism on a quest might be a subject to start with, but who knows, lets be open to ideas? Yes, plans all over the place I know. I am now looking for someone silly enough to join me.

I'd like someone who has a great interest in the world, its people, the way they live and only a passing interest in traditional tourism, or a lonely planet book - working together I want you to help me research possible stories to cover, unique adventures to be had that would make great radio - and all for no money, just for a journey of a life-time. If you adopt a mature and at the same time silly attitude to travel, enjoy getting off the beaten track, studious and like the occasional drink with a 41 year old, get in touch with me. Perhaps you already have some great ideas that we could look at. Send me an email and we can take it from there. Oh yes, and when am I planning to go? so far around early Jan 2007, but a shorter trip a few weeks in Dec 2006 is also a possibility. As the first port of call, just send me an email detailing ideas you have and how you could help. scinbox@hotmail.com

thanks for listening

Stephen

Stephen, sounds brilliant to me. Couldn't track your email address, so if you're interested in sharing a few ideas with a 28 year old filmmaker (sorry), please do not hesitate to contact me on mayvitkovitz@yahoo.com
Looking forward to,
Maya

Me, too. I'm a temporarily retired (dealing with family stuff) writer/producer/director and have been travelling since I was an infant. geraldine101010 @ yahoo.com (take out the 2 spaces)
