Jono & Ben - The Podcast
In today's podcast, we continue with our A to Z and we call Bunnythorpe, a lovely village just north of Palmerston North and apparently the residents there would prefer to live in Bunnythorpe over Hawaii, Italy and anywhere else in the world! Michael Galvin AKA Dr Chris Warner from Shortland Street also joined us, and Ben told a hilarious yarn about someone being stitched up after they had a little accident on a train... Happy Wednesday!

Michael Galvin, why Fiji is off limits, and facing up to failure in London
Each fortnight, Trip Notes hosts Stephanie Holmes and Tim Roxborogh are joined by a special guest to talk all about travel. On this episode, we chat with Michael Galvin.He's known and loved in New Zealand for playing Dr Chris Warner in the country's longest-running soap opera Shortland Street, a role he's had since the show started in 1994... apart from a four year break early on.He left the show in 1996 and moved to London, but his dreams of finding fame and fortune there didn't quite work out. In a refreshingly candid conversation, Michael tells us how it felt to fail and how he's found peace with the decisions he made. We also talk about Fiji - one of Stephanie and Tim's favourite destinations - but Michael reveals what it's like to visit there when you're the star of the nation's best-loved TV show. Clue: it's crazy.Once you've listened, please leave us a review and tell us some of your favourite destinations - we'd love to know where you're travelling, and where you're dreaming of.For more travel inspiration go to https://www.nzherald.co.nz/tripnotes and, when you're ready for your own adventure, go to https://www.intrepidtravel.com.
