Laurie Lee’s iconic journey on foot from the Cotswolds through Spain is one that travel writer Alastair Humphreys credits with inspiring his life of adventure. Almost a century after Lee set out, Humphreys decided to retrace the author’s trip by busking his way across Europe. Author and film-maker Jacki Hill-Murphy recreated Victorian nurse Kate Marsden’s journey across Siberia, as well as the journeys of numerous early female explorers. Together with Julia Wheeler they discuss travel inspiration and the appeal of travelling in another’s footsteps.
