You'd be forgiven for thinking that work dries up for all travel writers and editors during a global pandemic. However, for my guest on this episode, he's probably never been busier.Pól Ó Conghaile is Travel Editor for the Irish Independent and he's been one of my go-to sources on travel for a long time, given that he always has his finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest destinations and how best to get there. He's also had an influence on my own travel writing, having once provided feedback on my first ever travel article, advice that has stood to me to this day.On May 18th 2020, at a time when travel abroad was still restricted, I caught up with Pól who was busy predicting the future of travel for many media outlets. He was also working on his own novel initiative aimed at encouraging people to share their post-pandemic travel dreams.Pól spoke with me about discovering his passion for travel in Moscow, experiencing the perfect travel moment in Norway, and rediscovering the beauty of his own backyard.I hope you enjoy.
