This month, we have a very chilly repertoire of icy adventures on our menu. We’ll be sharing stories of ice and snow from the freezing corners of the world. There’s the story of a famous adventurer who defies the coldest areas in the world’s lowest temperatures, a winter Olympian who shares his experiences at Sochi 2014 and a person who’s conquering the cold every day to live in one of the northernmost areas of the world.
Who doesn’t, once in a while, long for the romance of travelling on an old-fashioned steam train on the railways? The big leather suitcases, the vintage coaches, a three-course dinner in the restaurant car. This month, we indulge in a touch of nostalgia and put the most delightful stories about train travel, then and now, on our menu.
