Holocene - Join a tribe of travelers transforming their lives.
Paste Magazine's Travel Section • Follow Alex Crevar on Twitter

Alex Crevar is the travel editor at Paste Magazine and a freelance journalist, specializing on international travel - with bylines in The New York Times, Men’s Journal, Outside, National Geographic Traveler, and Time Out. Alex brings to his work and life over 2 decades of focus on the Balkans - a region of the world I’m itching to see, particularly Macedonia, Bosnia, and Serbia and the Via Dinarica, a trek across 8 balkan countries.

Alex found a parallel in a time of transition between himself and the Balkans, a region of the world that has undergone rapid changes and an ongoing rebranding, over the past couple decades. Today, he is one of the world’s foremost authorities on the Balkans. He’s the travel editor at Paste Magazine and a freelance journalist, a career he found that he found purpose and creative expression from pursuing.

This episode is perfect for anyone who might feel stuck in their surroundings, or looking for a way to approach their travels to find inspiration from gaining a better sense of self.

Rachel's Bio: If you want to know what it's like to climb Kilimanjaro, paraglide with a hawk (a.k.a. "parahawk"), ice climb while simultaneously shooting a PBS show, or SCUBA dive the continental divide in Iceland, Rachel's the woman to ask.

Rachel has always been an explorer, from the days of youth running barefoot through Ohio's forests, to the present day scouring the globe for stories that need telling.

This episode is perfect for: Anyone looking to do anything that's bigger than them, or seeking transformation from their curiosity and the world.

“I think you can choose to be happy, and choose to explore, and choose to be fulfilled by life or you can choose to sit back and let life overwhelm you and be unhappy. But for me, the easiest happy life has been through travel because it’s continually evolving and changing and I’m continually discovering new things. And I just found very quickly that that suits me very well.”

Kirsten Alana is a former nomad turned New York based travel photographer, entrepreneur, consultant, writer, blogger and digital influencer and the creative mind behind Aviators and a Camera, where she posts about her adventures, luxury travel assignments, creative pursuits and life in general.

The compelling thing about Kirsten is not just the many hats she wears, or that what she does is unusual but how she does it so well, and with such a thoughtful style. At the very least, you should check out her work on Instagram. She is exactly the sort of person brands want to work with because she makes them look good, and smart.

This episode is ideal for anyone looking for change, a pathway to transformation in work and life, and who is considering traveling but letting something in a structured life hold them back from pursuing who they're meant to become.

14 years ago, on January 1st 2002, a book by a first time author was released onto shelves. This book became a runaway hit that, at the very least, changed the perspective of independent travel to a generation hungry for a little more adventure in life.

The book was called Vagabonding. It’s author, Rolf Potts is sitting down with us today — he’s the mind behind two books, the other is called Marco Polo Didn’t Go There, a collection of short stories from a life spent embracing "the ragged edge" of travel. He’s an essayist and writer who’s work you can find in publications like National Geographic Traveler, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Travel Channel, The Atlantic, and so many more. Nowadays, he’s a teacher and enthusiast for world travel, and vagabonding — his own term that describes a certain philosophical ethos around long term travel as a lifestyle, and not simply a flash in the pan experience for people in their 20s. Instead, travel can become a wider experience that a creative person might integrate and alternate between parts of their life. A life that begins the moment you stop making excuses.

This episode is perfect to reboot The Travelers podcast (formerly The Daily Travel Podcast) and an ideal listen for anyone looking to get a stronger understanding of travel's relationship to finding your career, fulfillment, and actualizing your best self.

*2015 marks the 25th anniversary of Halloween Horror Nights here at Universal Studios in Orlando. Every year since 1991, this event has grown not only at this park, but at other Universal Studios Theme Parks all around the world.
Together, my wife and I got to experience the whole event as a part of a VIP press event, which included touring 9 elaborately designed haunted mazes and multiple outdoor “scare zones”. They’ve basically turned the entire theme park and nine of the professional sound stages into one enormous haunted environment. It was, hands down, the most incredible and surreal outdoor atmosphere and immersive theater experience I’ve ever wandered through.

Interested in attending Halloween Horror Nights 25?
This is the perfect year to go for the first time or return and re-immerse yourself in the 25 years of Horror Night homage. Get your tickets information here. And be sure to check out these posts from friends of the show for everything you need to know:

Jason Will is the Founder and CEO behind Zipkick, a startup determined to personalize the travel booking process. With brand ambassador Scott Eddy behind the wheel, I jumped onboard the Zipkick roadtrip - a cross-country tour to build hype around the launch of the Zipkick smartphone apps.

Growing up playing competitive hockey left Jason with little chance to travel as a kid but plenty of competitive drive to be a champion. In this conversation, we delve into that inner-fuel and what it takes to launch and run a startup in the tech and travel industries.

Today’s guest is a photographer, filmmaker, blogger, and social entrepreneur.

And she’s also new to international travel, but she’s also just 17, which means she’s getting quite a headstart at building a life of travel, exploring her curiosity and creativity through The Global Sunrise Project, a documentary film project she’s building. Through this project, and her travels, Kasha Slavner explores the emotional value exposing yourself at a young age to difference, and why it’s so important to become what’s widely known as a global citizen.

“We think we know the plan, right? But the plan always tends to change on us. I had no idea. But I knew that something needed to change. I grew up in the city as a teenager. I always had this intrinsic feeling that at some point I wanted to get out and to see the world. I didn’t know how that was going to happen. But there was this golden thread that was consistent. It was maybe a little buried. There were doubts and there were fears. There were other pressures, that were like ‘Stay in Toronto!’ ‘Be like everyone else!’ but hey. Sometimes you just need to go with your gut.” - Christophe Cappon
Christophe Cappon is a Canadian who’s uprooted his life to move to Chiang Mai, Thailand, where he founded Thailand Yoga Holidays — an atypical yoga school that integrates the surroundings of Northern Thailand — it’s life, it’s food, and culture - into a series of retreats.
Christophe's decision to move to Chiang Mai was not an easy one and was quickly followed by a bout of Dengue Fever. Through this struggle, which he describes as an organic process, Christophe unlocked a love of the people and lifestyle of Thailand. He planted roots and built a school that now is "rolling really well," in his words. To me, his story is an example of the benefit of being open to being unplanned, being challenged, and being receptive to new experience.
I’m excited to sit down and explore his decision to build a life around his desire to see the world and explore his interests, rather than let these things remain hobbies and past-times.

The idea that you need to give up your travels in order to see the world is a common belief, but one that Edna has somehow dispelled along the way.
At 18, Edna Zhou moved to Shanghai to work her way around the world. At 21, she left with almost nothing to live in Singapore — inadvertently jumpstarting an international career in sports journalism, eventually leading to one of travel writing.
From there, she’d never look back - and I’m excited to bring her on the show to explore HOW someone’s able to perpetually travel while still growing a career, as we might define one to be.
Today, you can see her work and follow her adventures at ExpatEdna.com.

In this very special, and first-ever, live interview I sit down with creative agency founder and travel media producer Kristen Kellogg to explore her journey from bartender leading the wrong life to embracing the life waiting for her in travel.

Today, Kristen is the talent behind Border Free Travels, a boutique video and social marketing agency for brands and destinations through which she's reconstructed her lifestyle around a passion to see the world and capture her experiences in a personal way.

“I tell stories of the unsung heroes, the champions of humanity, giving hope to those in need of a quick pick-me-up. Through inspirational messaging and conscious action, I believe media has the power to motivate viewers to occupy their hearts.” - Britt Hysen
Today we get to sit down with the Founder and Editor in Chief of Millennial Magazine, a digital publication focused on the potential of the Millennial generations as change agents. In it’s own words, it’s “Forbes meets Life magazine with a social impact twist.”

Along with her team of photographers and writers, Britt produces monthly digital issues featuring stories across news, culture, profiles of Millennials making an impact and spotlights topics across the board, shining a light on the potential for a generation that up until recently has been more at the butt end of criticism than a tour de force generation that is coming into its own.

Today’s guest is one I had the pleasure of meeting in one of the many places he considers home, Bangkok. He took me to a cigar and whiskey bar in which they were projecting Buster Keaton on the brick wall and had a jazz singer in the corner. After a day spent on Khao San Road, and the backpacker scene there, this was a whole different side of Bangkok. The whole place felt a lot more New York than it did back alley Thailand.
And that’s how where I got to know Scott Eddy, a former stockbroker turned world traveling digital marketing consultant and public speaker.
More recently, he’s added digital nomad to list of descriptors. But travel wasn’t always there for Scott, and we’re going to get into the direction he’s taken his career, how and why.
Above all things, I’ve noticed Scott to be an opportunist in the best of ways — he never passes the opportunity to make a new connection, visit a new place, meet a new audience, or just say hello and be curious.

Adina Pease is a creative wanderer — her term, that I wish I thought of — and when she’s not documenting her travels in paint or film, through her company Dog on a Boat Studios, she’s running her new startup RambleGood, making and selling handmade travel goods for a good cause, products designed for the curious, the travelers, and those with an insatiable wanderlust for the world. Does that sound like you? Because I’m pretty sure that describes me.
She’s worked with National Geographic, Travel Oregon, and Matador Network, to name just a few, on various creative storytelling projects.

"What's another place that's kind of a black hole in people's imagination? Does it stretch me a little? So I go there open endedly... I'm just relying on good luck and chance encounters." - Naomi Duguid, on finding her next travel and creative project.

Naomi Duguid is a former-lawyer turned award winning cookbook writer, author, photographer and traveler. She’s the author of Hot Sour Salty Sweet, a culinary journey through Southeast Asia, and the person behind her website Immerse Through and presently working on her next book called Caucasia, an exploration of culture through food in Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan.
In this in depth conversation we dive right into the good stuff to explore what motivates Naomi's creative endeavors and drives her travels to the lesser known parts of the globe and how she built a life of travel having abandoned a more conventional career in the law.

Can travel break you away from shyness and naiveté? I think I know the answer to this, and so does today’s guest — who spent a year on the road searching for purpose and personal growth.
Nithin Coca is a freelance writer and social activist, as well as the author of the book Traveling Softly and Quietly, a young man’s journey for meaning on and off the beaten path - which you can pick up now. Nithin is an Indian American from Southern California with a lifelong travel bug — and his works been featured in many international and online publications. He's even spent time as a Couchsurfing ambassador, something that might lend a hint to his belief on overcoming shyness through travel.

"Good people greatly outnumber nasty people, worldwide. There is a network that existed long before facebook, and it is the network of persons of good will, who will introduce and pass you to other persons of good will, such that you can take a friendly look around a town, a nation or the world, as you like. There is no similar network among nasty people, they are on their own, and if you know what is good for you, leave them alone." – Mike Spencer Bown

23 years of adventures spent wandering the world has led Michael Bown to visiting every country and every region on Earth, from war-torn Mogadishu to living with pygmies in the Congo, all of this giving him credence to lay claim to the title of the world’s most travelled person in human history. This is not simple. Hitchhiking, multiple arrests in foreign countries, multiple bouts of malaria. But that’s the point. It’s the willingness to endure challenge, and the kindness of the strangest of strangers that delivers the story we’re looking for.

And today we get to know Mike Spencer Bown. In this piece, we explore the time Mike's spent in solitude living in the woods and how this has prepared and conditioned him for a life of perpetual travel to everywhere on this planet.

In this episode, we get into Mike's time spent in solitude living in the woods and how that experience conditioned him to become a perpetual traveler capable of going to everywhere in the world.

Jacqueline Kehoe is a travel writer and the author behind The Strange and New, a name taken from a poem that ends with a couplet which I grabbed from her website:
"...But they're always tired of the things that are

and they want the strange and new."
I believe those two lines describe people like us, certainly me and perhaps you. In Jacqueline's words, those lines are meant "for those who have their traveling paint set in hand, who globe-trot to become, and who yearn for experiences that are really just a series of interesting guesses." 

A single trip to Viet Nam lasted longer than this midwestern girl expected and today, from North Carolina, she's channeling a love of travel into narrative style prose. I'm excited in this episode to get into who Jacqueline is, where that perspective comes from, what happened in Viet Nam, her backstory and travels and how theater, like travel, might offer a glimpse into how it feels to try on different masks.

Beth Whitman is the editor and mind behind Wanderlust and Lipstick, where she bills herself as a contemporary wanderer and women’s travel expert, leading women-only and coed adventure tours that go from places like Santa Fe to Bhutan and New Guinea.

Once upon a time, Beth took a 3 month trip around the US at age 20, an experience that would catalyze her career in travel and a desire to venture further into the world.

Today, she is no stranger to adventure having completed the Snowman Trek in Bhutan, ridden a motorcycle from the Pacific Northwest to Panama, and backpacked all over Asia and Oceania. Beth and I met briefly at The White House Summit for Study Abroad and Global Citizenship and in this episode, you'll get to know her further.

After nine years as a celebrity gossip columnist in New York City, Kelly Will sold everything she owned to cross all 50 of the United States for one year — a social experiment she undertook to try to find more connection and build community into her life.
Today, she’s gearing up to launch her book, Willful, and a new company to help others find connection and purpose from the things they do.
I’m excited to explore Kelly’s reasons for taking such a trip — and broadcasting it in the way that she did, and the effects that the experience have had on her life and person.

In 2013, Mike Margolies had all the things you’re supposed to want to make you happy, but it wasn’t enough. He left his corporate job as an engineer to see if the world had something else to offer that might fulfill him.
The risks were minimal - to take a career break in your 20s is not completely unheard of. I did it and it changed me.
What Mike found did change the direction of his life, his definition of a career, the limits of his curiosity, and creativity, and today’s he’s exploring the travel lifestyle on his podcast, Walking the Earth. I’m curious to get into who Mike is, what he’s exploring through the podcast, what his definition of ‘the travel lifestyle’ is, and his stories from his travels.

“I remember thinking, ‘What am I doing?’ I had a great husband, I had a great house, I had all this safety — this big safety net — and I’ve just taken myself out of it. Am I doing the right thing? What is this going to lead to? It was really difficult. And there were moments on the road when I was just distraught and confused but I think once you take that giant leap of faith, the only way is forward. And it’s only natural to want to go back to something that’s really safe. To go back to your old life but if you just keep going forward, then you learn to trust, in whatever it is you learn to trust in. For me, it’s the universe. I trusted that everything will be okay. And since then doors have opened. I don’t regret that at all. I’m definitely living the right life for me now.”
Lisa Eldridge is an author and journalist, whose works been published by Insight Guides, Sunday Times Travel, and Real Travel magazine. With a background in the travel industry, she set out at twenty one to live and work in numerous countries, totalling 85 — about half of which she visited on her own. But it was in Eastern Asia that she found the inspiration to create something from her curiosity, and her site site Girl About the Globe was born — an ethical travel resource for women who want to travel, and might need to do so on their own.
She recently successfully Kickstarted her own book, A Female Guide to Solo Travel.
Solo-female travel is a topic we get into a lot on this show — and we’ll be exploring a little this month (April 2015). I wanted to chat with Lisa at a deeper level about the complexities and differences of being a woman on the road, and why it is harder for women to find the same transformative experience on the road as I did, and continue to do, in my travels.

Jonny Blair is the Northern Irishman behind the site Don't Stop Living, a blog "covering the lifestyle of travel," which he defines as being always on the move - even when employed. Jonny's backpacked to 99 countries and on the cusp of hitting #100 - while studying in England, China, Australia and Uruguay. 

In this episode, we get into how Jonny defines the travel lifestyle for himself, what motivates that, and how he makes this work for himself.

Mark van der Heijden is a creative copywriter from Amsterdam who just last year, left his job to travel the world with an unique goal. He calls himself The Backpacker Intern and is leveraging his talents as a creative copywriter to land internships around the world in the fields of content marketing, advertising, and production in exchange for (get this) only food and somewhere to sleep.

This quest has led him to the TEDx stage in New York, The White House where we met, among the top 100 digital media influencers in travel, and most recently, Antarctica - which he’s just returned from and I can’t wait to hear all about.

Love what Mark’s doing and the extremely savvy and unique approach to using his travels to help others and perpetuate this idea that travel isn’t detrimental to your career. In fact, it makes you more desirable to employers.
