    We’re in Iceland for episode two of the Rough Guide to Everywhere podcast. The home of monster glaciers, thunderous waterfalls and bubbling hot springs, there’s plenty to take in here, from lively Akureyri on the north coast to the ever-popular Reykjavik in the south. We’re an inquisitive bunch here at Rough Guides and wanted to…

    Would you consider travelling somewhere with no wi-fi or GPS? Or no mobile phone signal at all? How about living there? In the first episode of series four of our podcast series, The Rough Guide to Everywhere, we explore the sleepy mountain village of Green Bank, USA. This small, intriguing town in West Virginia is unlike any other: mobile phones,…

    In 18th-century Louisiana, escapee African slaves would make a break for the bayous. Here they might encounter Native Americans and occasionally find asylum with them: two peoples who had in common a struggle for freedom from oppression. That this episode in history is remembered is in part thanks to the Black Masking Indians of New…

    Forget review sites and apps, local tips and even (whisper it) guidebooks – maybe the best way to find your perfect destination is to spit in a tube. Not just any tube, of course, but one you send to a genetic testing company, who will then analyse your DNA and tell you where in the…

    Galápagos. What do you picture when you hear those four syllables? Chances are it’s wildlife, from giant tortoises and marine iguanas to blue-footed boobies. And rightly so, for the animals on these islands, sitting in extreme isolation 1000km (600 miles) off the Ecuadorian coast, are genuinely spectacular. In fact, it was the so-called ‘tameness’ of…

    Stranded in the Mediterranean between Europe and North Africa, Malta has always attracted curious travellers. It has been colonised by everyone from the French to the Phoenicians, its culture, language and architecture shaped by many civilisations – but even more than this by the rocky land itself. Malta today is full of intriguing contradictions: a…

    Do sea shanties have a voice in 2018? The coal mines, keel boats and whaling parties that brought them into being may be long gone, but Northeast England‘s shanty tradition has eternal qualities pulsing through it: folk memory, togetherness, oral tradition, protest and celebration, love and loss. And stories: without these shanties, many of the…

    A safari without rhinos? That’s the sad future we may be facing. Right now South Africa is home to eighty percent of the world’s rhinos, but poaching is reducing their numbers every year – in 2017, three rhinos were killed every day on average. Anti-poaching units across the country are fighting to protect these and other…
