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.

What is creative travel? You might be asking. We’ll get into that.

Elena is a multi-lingual Austrian travel writer, consultant, and speaker with a career in tourism management. A year spent living in New Zealand triggered an awareness for the potential creative travel has in this world, and she began to pursue a consultancy around it - to help destinations cultivate their creative offerings to travelers.

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.
