Today, the Indie Travel Podcast celebrates its 100th episode, and Craig and Linda celebrate their homecoming after three years of full-time travel. We decided to mark the occasion with a recap of our travels, and the life so far of ITP.

So where have we been in these three and a bit years?

The birth of a podcast

During our travels, we realised that we’d learned a fair bit about how to travel well, and decided to share our new knowledge with the world. We started the podcast during our time in St Albans, and introduced articles, videos and the enhanced version during our time on the Isle of Wight. It’s grown pretty steadily since then, and last month won the Best Travel Podcast category of the Lonely Planet Travel Blog Awards. We’re planning to continue travelling, and of course to continue with the podcast. We hope you’ll join us for the rest of the journey!

  • I'm glad! They flew by for us too. We just sat down and started talking about what we've been doing ... then I cut about 15-20 minutes out and that's what was left. I'm glad we're inspiring people as well as making them jealous!

  • We're certainly not going away, mate! We'll be travelling through NZ this year -- and talking about it -- as well as short trips to China and Tonga. We'll be taking off to South America in December or January on the start of a one year round-the-world trip...We're still travelling!

  • Yes, we're certainly moving more slowly! It must be age :P Rediscovering our own city is fun. We'll be producing an Auckland city guide in the next month or two, I think!
