    Sustainable? Tick. Slow travel? Tick. Affordable? Tick. Move over glamping, #vanlife is the latest travel trend we can’t get enough of. Whether you’re hitting the road in a revamped VW, careering through California in an RV or pitching up on a campsite in a static caravan, bundling your pals/ family/ pets into the back of a campervan is the way to adventure in summer 2021.We’re ditching the traditional flight-and-hotel model and riding the campervan trend as soon as travel gets back on the road. Helping us travel more sustainably, slowly and smarter, listen up as we deep-drive into why a holiday-on-wheels is the next outdoor trend. Plus, we reveal our own campervan travel tales, the road trip routes we want to take and whose vans we’re borrowing. We’ll also be joined by the trio behind the UK’s newest (and coolest) staycation retreat, Club Jupiter. Interior designer Whinnie Williams, interior writer and stylist Emma Jane Palin and travel journalist (and long-time SUITCASE contributor) Anna Hart have spent the last year of lockdown revamping a static caravan in Kent. Snazzy. Tune in as they share the hotels that have inspired them, nifty interior DIY tips and why we’re all seeking a dose of nostalgia. We’ll save a space for you by the campfire.We’d love to know where you’re going next and how you think the travel landscape might change as lockdown restrictions ease.

    Is This the End of the Traditional Holiday? Ft. Emma Gannon

    45:50

    After a short hiatus – spent producing SUITCASE’s newest issue Volume 33: Collective (India), watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch reruns (Fleur) and avoiding baking anything (both) – we’re back. Season two of The Upgrade podcast kicks off with us asking a very important question: have we killed the traditional holiday?As people take back control of their time and income, turn hobbies into side hustles and continue to blur the boundaries between work and play, the way we’re holidaying is changing. Join us as we deep-dive into the rise of the workation, reveal the destinations offering the best visas for digital nomads and share the places we’re planning to plug-in from. We’ll also be joined by the master of multi-hyphenates, Emma Gannon, whose best-selling book – one of five, we may add – rewrote the rules of working for a legion of millennial fans. We catch up with the broadcaster-cum-author to chat about the freedoms of multi-hyphenates, how to nail your slashie bio and the countries she’s itching to get back to. Oh and grab a pen, Emma’s carry-on book recommendations will have you hot-footing to your favourite independent bookstore quicker than you can say “beach paperback”.   We’d love to know where you’re going next and how you think the travel landscape might change as lockdown restrictions ease.
