February 1st, 2021 | Duration 01:31:41 | Posted in Travel Radio Podcast by Megan Chapa
Travel may be canceled but travel dreaming and travel planning is full force. Mentally cooking up adventures is healthy. On this replay episode I interview Katheryn Parker Magyar who’s bylines include: Departures, Architectural Digest, Forbes, The Daily Beast, The Week, TripSavvy, Business Insider, World Travel Magazine and more.
Our conversation is a sample collection of popular destinations and then the alternatives you might try instead. Trust me, this conversation could have gone on ALL DAY. WE get along like a house on fire.
Katherine is a delight. Her writings can be found at https://www.katherineparkermagyar.com
Original Episode Notes:
New Destinations For Experienced Travelers
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.)
