Episode 112. "Travel will humble you quickly.” ~Lisa James
Mark this episode as your first dose of The Creative Impostor’s cure for cabin fever, a prescription for passport blues and Instagram envy in the time of COVID. Lisa James kicks off a series of conversations with travel storytellers. The woman behind Adventurous Midlifer is challenging the rigid terms by which influencers are defined - and fostering genuine connections along the way.
An intrepid adventurer, Lisa’s embraced travel realness since she first grabbed her passport, her backpack, her five-year-old twins and set off Guatemala. In 1999. Pre-5G. Post-Guatemalan civil war.
35 countries later, Lisa’s enjoying her life as the antithesis of Instagram’s typical travel influencer. She’s Black, budget-conscious, and middle-aged. She doesn’t even like taking or posting pictures all that much! Not exactly a POV found with a quick scroll.
“I just felt like I wanted to create something where I can talk about what I love - which is travel - but I can talk about what's in my heart, that's relevant to this season in my life, of midlife.”
