The writer Anna Freeman presents a showcase of true stories about the meaning of art in people's lives. This week, how it feels to travel, how it feels to return home, and the art that comes out of the journeys we take. First up, a sweaty cycle-touring Shakespeare troop look back on their tour and then to look forward... into the unfamiliar face of "normal life". Then Anna tells a story of how travel feeds her writing - and how writing feeds her travel. And finally we meet Gemma Paintin and James Stenhouse, who toured 28,000 km across Europe recording love songs in their van, which doubles as their home and mobile recording studio. What have they learned about Europe, and about love, from this listening odyssey?

Produced by Mair Bosworth and Becky Ripley
