It’s me, Suchandrika Chakrabarti!

Do comment on the thread at the bottom of the text!
Thought I’d try something different for this grey Saturday during what feels like a neverending lockdown…
I’ve been thinking about holidays and travelling and the places I’ve been, because I’m finding it hard at the moment to imagine a world in which we’ll get to travel again (we will! It’s just that my imagination is failing me in this respect at the moment).
I’m wondering which past destination I could make another episode about for the lovely Fantasy Holidays in a time of COVID podcast (and you can submit an episode idea too, just email Joy and Barrie at firstname.lastname@example.org).
My first episode was about sailing through Greek islands in summer 2016.
For my next one, I’m torn between talking about Hong Kong or Vietnam, and I need your help choosing! Should I go for:
Hong Kong in 36 hours (2016)- a press trip for the Daily Mirror
Vietnam (2014) - the first time I went travelling alone in Asia (aka the realisation that strangers can be the best to travel with!)
Which one should I go for? Let me know in the thread below!
Also! I’ll share memories of each trip in the thread below, why don’t you do the same? Is there a holiday from your past you’ve been dreaming about in lockdown? Would you love to take that trip again? Tell us about it!
A thread like this is about building community, so feel free to comment on each other’s comments and generally be positive and lovely about each other…
Thank you so much for reading!
If you enjoy my work & fancy buying me a virtual coffee, I’d be delighted (and will hopefully experience a virtual caffeine rush):
