Julie Slagter founded Creative Travel Connections to introduce others to different cultures. Her interest in experiencing new places and cultures has taken her around the world—both for work and leisure. She has traveled extensively by herself and with others throughout Western and Eastern European countries, UK, SE Asia, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, and 42 of the United States. She also resided for one year in Athens, Greece. While she is location independent, home-base is Michigan, USA. Julie is at her best when she is traveling; she is optimistic, open-minded, and she loves meeting others along the way.
