podcast“We are still primal. Regardless of the epoch or era, travel knows no boundaries. It knows no gender, race or religion. People want to see the yet unseen. They want to fall in love on a sailboat. They want to smell skewers sizzling on a curbside food cart while trams bustle between locals lounging in the sun at terrace cafes. Adventurers want to sleep in mountain huts in the Alps. They want to order exotic cocktails in Bali. They want to discover secret festivals in the town just down the road. From this premise, we at Paste launch this new Travel Section.” – Paste Magazine, Travel
