Y’know those moments when you’re suddenly put on the spot?
Wes Fleming from BMWMOA (BMW Owners Club USA) did just that with the latest ‘Chasing the Horizons’ podcast. Listening to it just now I realise how many questions he asked that I’ve not been asked before!
I enjoyed the chat. I hope you do too.
Wes writes as the intro – Episode 13 is a bit of a departure. Back in October, world traveller and author Sam Manicom parked his book tour at my house for a night before his engagement at Morton’s BMW in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I took the opportunity to sit down with him and talk about his life on the road for the podcast. Since we were sitting in my dining room, we talked …and talked …and TALKED for over an hour! That makes this the longest episode of the podcast, but it’s well worth listening to, if for no other reason than to glean pearls of wisdom from Sam’s hard-earned experience. (I have to say that Sam was also a gracious and tidy house guest. He’s welcome back any time!)
There’s no timeline for this episode, as it’s pretty much all interview. However, I can tell you that we discussed – given here in alphabetical order – the following topics …AND MORE…
coffee vs tea
crashing & gear
cursing in foreign languages
fruit & the glory of apples
living & riding in the UK
not being in a hurry
sizes of the continents
travelling in the USA
