    Episode 74: Fall 2021 TWM Intern Team

    Hello Meaningful Travelers!
    This is the last episode of  season 4 and of 2021.  We finished the year with an in person conversation with our Fall intern team.  On this episode we hear from each of the interns about the podcast episodes they produced, what principles of How To Travel With Meaning they connected with, stories they created and what were their big takeaways for this semester. 
    The intern team played a huge part in isolating principles from past podcast episodes and creating two meaningful audio visual trailers that incorporated the principles that were organically shared by guests. Click here and here to watch / listen to the videos created by Thomas Akiona and Garrett Coleman. Make sure you visit Travel With Meaning website and Youtube channel to check out great blogs and videos from the intern team. 
    All of the work and research the intern team did 
    This was a very talent bunch and we can't wait to see where their journeys take them.   A big thank to the Fall 2021 intern for their contributions to the future of meaningful travel storytelling with TWM - thank you Trisha Sacramone, Sierra Sorrentino, Garrett Coleman, Amrit Pannu, Amogh Matthews, Thomas Akiona and Daniela Lobo-Rivera.

I love the theme of this show. Mike and the guests make me reminisce about my best travels and further cement my belief that traveling is about the individuals you meet and moments that change you as much, if not more than, it is about the place you are visiting. The show inspires me to put more miles on my odometer and more stamps in my passport, but with the addition of being conscious and present during each step of the journey. Awesome stuff!
