This week’s essay is my ode to Mary Poppins, a character I’ve loved for many years. I explore what makes her so weird and wonderful and why she’s the exact opposite of a Disney princess.
Then I sit down with the founder of Travelhers Collective Olivia Wickstrom. Olivia has had the travel bug since she was 3 years old and has spent time in the UK, Norway, and South Africa to name a few. Together we discuss how travel changes you and the lessons she’s learned from her time abroad. We also talk a bit about how to incorporate the feelings of freedom and awe that we experience while traveling into our day-to-day life in our own towns.
