Michael Palin’s Thoughts on Slow Travel

The closure of major parts of European air space over five days in April 2010, due to the volcanic ash cloud from the Icelandic Eyjafjallajokull volcano, propelled slow travel to the front pages of European newspapers and lead to a number of radio shows on slow travel.

On the 23rd April 2010 BBC Radio 4’s programme “You and Yours” dedicated a whole show to the “Ash Cloud Travel Chaos”. For those Aussies out there we apologise as the show starts with a few moaning poms but it turns more positive from chapter 2 onwards with a poem from Ian McMillan! The show starts to focus more specifically on slow travel in chapter 4 with a few interviews including one from our Co-Founder Tom McMillan.

So what about Michael Palin we hear you ask! Well he enters the show to talk about slow travel in Chapter 4, 33 minutes into the programme. Click here to listen to the You and Yours show.
