“Trooping through cathedrals, museums and art galleries. with hundreds of other people is increasingly being seen as an experience to avoid rather than desire.”

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” exactly? We dive deep. Deeper than I expected actually so I hope you’ll listen through this whole conversation.

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 seven languages, paints, and you can explore her work and travel writing over at creativelena.com.

This episode is ideal for anyone looking to explore their curiosity and creativity to find transformative experience on the road, to engage with the world and stop being a bystander in the story of their life. Explore your creative side.
