Meet your Hosts
Co-host BELINDA JACKSON has travelled to every continent and lived on three, eating everything she was told to (and many things she should not have). She’s played piano while crossing the Drake Passage to Antarctica, hiked through ancient olive groves in Palestine, danced at Irish weddings and in Russian nightclubs, taken a dingy to find hidden Australian rock art galleries, and slipped out of bed and into a Maldivian lagoon. Her second home is Cairo, and she has has more than a passing fancy for the Middle East’s scarves and carpets.
Belle is a regular columnist for the Traveller section of the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, has the occasional chat to ABC Radio and her stories and photographs appear in Australian and international publications.
Co-host KIRSTIE BEDFORD has the same enthusiasm for travel she held as a six-year-old when she boarded her first international flight. In her 20s, she did the customary European tour, cycling along the French Riviera and zipping around Tuscany on a scooter. But it’s learning from other cultures she holds dearest – biking with locals on Vietnam’s Cam Kim Island; cooking traditional Sri Lankan dishes in Colombo; drinking sake with a Japanese family in Shikoku; and a Welcome to Country ceremony with Indigenous elders in Broome.
Kirstie works for Signature Media publishers of Signature Luxury Travel & Style magazine and Vacations & Travel. She has held the editorship of six magazines, including as founding editor of Luxury Escapes magazine.
