The travel podcast from Peter and Felice Hardy

Welcome to ActionPacked, the travel podcast. Our idea for this podcast came about a few months ago, before the world as we know it changed.

‘Should we carry on or mothball it?’ We wondered. Hell no, let’s go for it. So we launched on Friday 13th March 2020. But instead of making it travel with a holiday angle, for now we’re featuring a series of interviews with fascinating people who have done amazing things.

Some of the interviews might not seem to be directly related to travel, but all of the people we’ve spoken to have been inspired by their journeys.

Together we’ve spent half a lifetime travelling to just about every corner of the world, making a living as travel writers out of what we like doing best – and that’s skiing, biking, hiking, eating, exploring, city breaks, seaside, shopping…and a whole lot more. 

Each week, ActionPacked gives us the opportunity to share with you on the show some of these great experiences and the amazing people we meet along the way. You can find out much more about us here on actionpackedtravel.com. 

We’ll regularly be posting links and transcripts of our shows and a load of detailed information here about the holidays, the places, and the activities that we mention. How to get there, where to stay, what it costs, and other useful stuff. 

To us the winter and spring months means lots of skiing – it’s our premier profession, but life’s not just all about going downhill. We also like sunny beaches, crazy cities and the call of the wild.
