Food & Radio with Carlos
For many years now Carlos has been a presenter on Smooth Radio, the past four of which have been on the Smooth Drive Home here in the North West. When he’s not helping his commercial market leading audience get home after a busy day he’s taking to the road himself…
Carlos’ first touring caravan experience was in 1967 at 4 months old! His parents had enjoyed caravanning since the early 50s and Carlos soon revelled in weekends away all over the UK and frequent caravan trips to Spain, France and Switzerland. “The caravan gave me some of the happiest and most memorable times of my childhood,” recalls Carlos, “I loved the whole thing - having our ow second home on wheels and just heading off somewhere to enjoy places we would’ve never experienced without a caravan.”

Anna is a lifelong environmentalist and is passionate about low-carbon travel, advocating home-grown adventure and slow travel as an alternative to flying. Her many adventures within the UK reveal that there are thousands of hidden gems here on our doorstep just waiting to be discovered.
She has authored two books: ‘Eat, Sleep, Cycle: a bike ride around the coast of Britain’ and ‘Pedal Power: inspirational stories from the world of cycling’, and has co-authored another: ‘Peaky Climbers’, which recounts the misadventures of a group of eight amateur cyclists who take on 20 peaks of the Tour de France in seven days.'
