Mountain Shores #3: Cakes and Slow Travel

Our podcast baby has a name, finally! Started as a wee experiment, we’re glad to bring you Mountain Shores episode 3, recorded with my co-host Milo McLaughlin and our regular guest (let’s me honest: our co-host honorem causa) Michael Nobbs.

In a premiere, we met up in real life – in order to attend Chris Guillebeau’s Party at the End of the World, celebrating the fact that he achieved his goal of visiting every country in the world by the age of 35 (it was also his birthday party!).

On a mountainside in Oslo, Milo, Michael and myself discuss slow travel, making deeper and more meaningful connections (even at crazy parties) and why the word awesome can sometimes feel a bit awkward to say out loud (but is still referring to a good thing). Also, feat. lots of cakes. Think of it as a special guest.

Also, see some wonderful photos of the trip by the amazing Milo McLaughlin over at Flickr. (And at the top of this post!)


  1. Hi Fabian, if it’s okay with you, I will use the comment that I posted over on Milo’s Clear-Minded Creative post for the podcast:

    Another good episode, and great to finally have a name! Very much enjoying the chilled out ‘vibe’ (if you don’t mind me using that word; goes quite nicely with ‘awesome’, perhaps!). Almost feel like I was there with you, helped in no small part by Milo’s photos reminding me of my trip to Copenhagen just before Christmas.

    Really enjoying the ‘slow travel’ theme, I’m starting to better understand how I can embrace ‘slowness’ within my own life and particularly through running. Somehow, it’s one of those lessons I’ve had to learn for myself, but feels much better for having done so, and makes me feel I can relate a lot more to a discussion such as this one.

    1. Thanks so much, Paul! It’s funny how running can be a pointer towards slowness, but I think I get what you’re experiencing. Life at your own pace, how I like to call it.

      Have a great weekend! :)
