Rediscovering Nova Scotia and travelling in a COVID world
Although they’re both from the South Shore, hosts Meggan and Jenn didn’t know each other until they met in a Facebook travel group in 2020. They discovered a shared love of travel and chatting over coffee. That friendship quickly blossomed into the Travel Mug Podcast, where they offer travel advice and chat with others who share their passion.
Based in Nova Scotia, they provide tips for staycationers rediscovering their province, plus firsthand advice for people venturing further afield to Europe, the U.S., and the Caribbean. Recent episodes include advice on COVID-safe travel, a primer on Bar Harbor, Maine, and a guide to the Fundy and Northumberland shores.
