Today on the Nomad Narratives podcast, Julie Slagter shares her nomad narrative! Meaghan Pear, who was a guest on an earlier episode, interviews Julie about her location independent lifestyle and work with Creative Travel Creations.
I discovered my wanderlust when I was 6 years old looking out the rear view window of the family Buick. With seven of us headed from Michigan to Florida in that big blue 1970’s ride, during the days when seat belts weren’t required by law, my seat for the entire 24 hours was actually on the platform next to the back window. Our family’s road trips soon expanded to more conducive vehicles, but at the helm of all our trips was my dad. He introduced me to geological wonders, various North American cultures, magnificent forests, architecture, and ocean life. If there’s one thing I inherited from my dad, it’s his wanderlust and for that, I’m deeply grateful.
Throughout my adult life, I’ve had the opportunity to experience numerous cultures around the world and my wanderlust has only grown. I can’t stop traveling! I love experiencing new things and meeting the amazing people that make up this world. Contributing to our diverse world and extending dignity and respect to all human beings is what drives me. And connecting travelers to different cultures and watching them further develop their view of the world brings me great joy.
I welcome you to join me on this journey!
