How lockdown affected Dylan Thomas
Geoff Haden has long been involved in tourism in Swansea (Wales) as owner of Clyne Farm Activity Centre (clynefarm.com), which also has self-catering accommodation, and 5 Cwmdonkin Drive, the birthplace of poet and playwright Dylan Thomas (dylanthomasbirthplace.com). The latter is a member of Literary Houses and Museums of Great Britain (lithouses.org) and was voted Best Small Attraction in Swansea Bay 2019 in the local tourism awards. I chat to Geoff about how lockdown has affected his businesses.
Why Brittany is France's best tourist destination (according to @brittanyexpert)
I chat to Brittany-based writer and historian Wendy Mewes about her new book, Wayfaring in Brittany (Red Dog Books), and find out why France's Celtic region is such a great place to get off the beaten track - especially for walkers and history buffs. I also learn a thing or two about crepes and galettes. You can find her on Twitter @brittanyexpert.
