Description of the podcast:
“Sea Bird Nest” is the direct translation of the name of the podcast. As you can imagines, the podcast is a place for travellers who are like seabirds to join and share their stories on islands they “flew” to before. In every programme, the invited guests give a comprehensive description of their travel experience, including airlines, food, visa, accommodation, shopping and, most importantly, the places that they visited on the island.
What’s interesting about the podcast is that for many episodes, the guests are newlyweds who shared their romantic honeymoon stories on sea islands, the vast majority of which are located in the Maldives. The guests are mainly travellers who haven’t really left China before they went on their island holiday. They are interviewed by experienced travellers and it’s interesting hearing the experience of Chinese people going abroad for the first time. The podcast is also good for learning how to tell other people about a sequence of events, where one things leads to the next thing but in an interesting way.
海鸟窝 is a travel podcast can bring you to the experience at gorgeous islands across the world.
