Ginger Kern TravelThis is part 2 of my conversation with Ginger Kern. Listen to part 1.

Today we’re exploring what I mean when I talk about becoming an Explorer, or taking the mindset of an explorer into everything you do.

Ginger Kern has spent the last 4 years traveling the world and observing the effects of travel on happiness, or how travel can make us feel more at peace with ourselves.

She manages the summits put on by The Higher Purpose Project and recently co-founded the MBADventures Pilot Experience – which involves escaping with likeminded people on life-changing adventures. More recently, she’s begun speaking on what she calls The Traveler’s Mindset, which is both a way of life and a digital platform she’s launching. I’m so excited to get into what she means by this, and why it matters, and how it relates to imagination, adventure and all of the prevailing themes of this podcast.


What We Cover:

  • Being stuck in the dull nagging ache of routine is a choice. Getting unstuck is a choice.

  • How connecting with the humanity in everyone is a skillset you can develop, and one that helps you combat that feeling of being stuck, isolation, or boring routine.

  • How traveling can help you develop an appreciation for loneliness.

  • Ginger would love for The Traveler’s Mindset, and what a more well-traveled society looks like.
  • How travel actually is an addiction.
