Clara Amfo: Ghana, London, Japan

So it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that she brings the same energy to her travels. In this final episode of Postcards, she talks travel journalist, Greg Dickinson through a few of her most vivid travel memories, including a childhood trip to Ghana, a more recent one to Tokyo, and a taste of the Caribbean at the Notting Hill Carnival.

Miriam Margolyes: Australia, India, Italy

Whether you first encountered Miriam Margolyes as Professor Sprout in the Harry Potter films, or as Mrs Mingott in Martin Scorsese’s The Age of Innocence, or in any one of the hundreds of screen and stage roles that she’s had over the decades— you’ll probably have warmed to her. She’s like that. And as she reveals to Greg Dickinson in this typically lively and forthright interview, travel has been one of the sustaining forces in both her life and her career. From an early memory of approaching Venice at dawn through to a recent, 10,000km road trip across Australia - she shares her highlights and makes an impassioned case for the lifelong value of travel.

Ade Adepitan: Spain, Nicaragua, Congo

Ade Adepitan grew up in East London, wearing callipers on his legs as a result of childhood polio - and feeling like adventures were things that happened to other people. But then a chance encounter with a wheelchair basketball team turned all of that upside down. The Paralympic medallist and broadcaster talks Greg Dickinson through a handful of his most vivid travel memories - including a hair-raising expedition up the side of a live volcano in Central America, a meeting with a one-eyed boxing champion in Kinshasa, and a plot to kidnap him that didn’t quite go to plan.
