Sailing, hanami and the women haunting the streets of London: just some of the topics we covered in the first Thelma & Louise Facebook Live travel chat!
If you missed it, you can still catch up on the Thelma & Louise Facebook Page.
We discussed how our lives and travel plans have changed since ‘coronavirus’ entered our vocabulary. Hint: Ana managed to squeeze in a trip just before lockdown; Emma absolutely did not…
We hope you enjoy it and that, in some small way, it helps you cope with the loneliness and boredom that can accompany isolation and lockdown.
As promised, here are links to the various places and products we discussed.
