Sandi Toksvig gets a glimpse into the esoteric world of surfing when she meets author and surfer Tom Anderson who has journeyed round the world in search of new places to ride the waves. He has surfed from Sri Lanka to Spain including chasing hurricanes in the USA, riding the Severn Bore and what many consider to be the best wave in the world off the South African coast.
Sandi also explores two different approaches to women's travel. Christine Davies is the co-founder of Thelma and Louise, a social networking website that puts women in touch with others so they can travel together and share experiences of their journeys. Christine has also coped with bereavement by sailing on a clipper to Brazil. Jennie Cox is part of a recent trend for young women to go on a girls' break often inspired by the location for a film. She and a couple of girlfriends recently returned from a road trip round California, Arizona and Nevada and she tells Sandi of the fun to be had travelling with pals.
