If you’re an Independent reader, or an aspiring traveler, then you may have already heard of Simon Calder. If not, let us introduce you to him…
Simon Calder is the senior Travel Editor at The Independent newspaper, writing a weekly column as well as articles and features. He also writes for Conde Nast Traveller as well as many other publications and presents the UK’s only radio travel phone-in programme called The LBC Travel Show with Simon Calder each Sunday. Simon is a frequent guest on BBC Breakfast News, ITV News and Sky News so you may recognize him from there!
In a couple of weeks, Simon will be taking over this blog, our @EurostarUK Twitter profile and the Eurostar Facebook Page for one hour to answer any travel related and Tread Lightly questions you can fire at him in an hour. Think Q&A pages of a travel magazine, but live and with a true travel expert ready to offer on the spot advice as well as recommendations for sustainable travel operators, destinations and deals.
The Q&A begins at 12pm on Tuesday 5th July and Simon is most keen to talk about our Tread Lightly initiative, which you can read about here, so take a look for some inspiration on what questions to ask and post them below to get answered.
Also, if you’re on Twitter, join us in taking part in Travel Talk On Twitter for a train travel themed conversation with hundreds of like-minded travelers from around the world. If you’re unfamiliar with these weekly conversations, read up about it on Travel Dude’s blog and follow the #TTOT hashtag on Twitter from Tuesday morning.
