But she always sees the funny side.She’s presented reports for the BBC Holiday Programme, anchor for ITV day time travel shows and done numerous travel expert slots with bonkers haircuts and bad make-up. She devised, presented and co-produced her own travel series on Jazz Fm, with her one-year-old sitting in the corner, who she then proceeded to travel with until he was eighteen.  She’s reported for Classic Fm, co-presented the Share Radio Travel Guide with Simon Rose on Share Radio and is travel editor of the Richmond magazine and Radio Gorgeous.  She writes regularly for Om Yoga magazine and Top Sante. In this episode Sarah shares some of her amazing stories, like taking her young son tiger trekking in India, encountering a bear in the Canadian wilderness, visiting a potato museum  and attending a church service in rural Senegal.  Through it all, she talks about the value of talking with the locals to learn what is most important to them and by doing so leaving a deep impact on her life. Sarah talks about how to travel with the eyes of a journalist, going beyond what the tourist books  recommend to meet amazing people, learn about how they live and what they are passionate about to come away with so much more than great photos and fun memories, but with an expanded way of thinking and a powerful insight into other cultures.To find out more about and contact Sarah go to her website:  SarahTucker.infoCheck  out Sarah's books: The A to Zen of TravelThe Redundant Travel JournalistThe Witches of Richmond
