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.

Elena Paschinger is the author of The Creative Travelers Handbook, the first - and I think only - travel guide for creative travel.

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.

She speaks 7 languages, paints, and you can explore her work and travel writing over at creativeelena.com

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.

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.
