New Destinations For Experienced Travelers

INSTAGRAM
WEBSITE

If I had to assign Katherine Parker-Magyar a spirit animal it would be a youthful pup caught in a "full-body-wag".

"You love travel? I love travel! LET'S TALK TRAVEL!"

That is my experience interviewing Katherine.

Katherine Parker-Magyar has the accomplishments of a rigorous academic, a sense of adventure rivaling Lewis and Clark and stamps on her passport to brag about. This episode will expose you to the joy Katherine brings to travel writing and perhaps pick up a few new destinations for your bucket list! We cover the world by region and explore alternative destinations for travelers that have trekked the well-worn paths of popular destinations.

In additional to her bylines (Architectural Digest, Forbes, The Week, Business Insider and more…) Katherine shares her love of books and her favorite charities. The Amal Foundation aims to support young Palestinian refugees seeking higher education. Amal, in Arabic, translates to "hope" in English. That is exactly what this foundation does and for a staggeringly affordably cost. (See link below.)
