Keep travel dreams alive with Trafalgar’s free digital events in March

Even a glimpse of international travel, and what it will look like post-COVID, is still awhile away, but as with 2020, dreaming is still important. The problem is then sorting through the deluge of travel talks and videos to find what’s going to inspire you.

The answer: well, anything. You can never know what’s going to resonate with someone at any given moment, but at least the following talks have a good chance at inspiring a great deal of people.

Because travel talks are how we’re going to keep overseas travel dreams alive right now.

Awarded tour specialist Trafalgar is launching a series of talks with hosts from around the globe, all free events under a program simply called “Ultimate Travel Events”.

What’s more is that they are giving away $100,000 worth of travel to one winner who registers to any of the free March events.

Emmy-nommed chef Catherine Fulvio, dialling in from her kitchen at the family farm, will share her grandmother’s recipe for soda prep. Poppy Salinger, who opens up her residence in France, will preview what awaits in the country as well as pay homage to her late husband, Pierre Salinger. Marta Cuccia, one of Italy’s last remaining renaissance weavers, will share how she crafts her creations by hand on 500-year-old looms.

There are plenty of fascinating digital events being planned, each designed as an insider’s guide and a slice of escapism for those longing to jump to another country.
