A creative traveller takes the reigns on their travel and doesn’t settle for pre-packaged tours or the well-trodden tourist route if that isn’t where the duende lies. Creative travellers research the best experiences within their time and budget, and are actively involved in creating an overseas adventure tailored to their interests and style of travel. They are cultural travellers who want to experience a destination from a local’s perspective through culture, food, history, art and great places to stay.
Travelling creatives are anyone who considers themselves creative, whether they work in a traditionally regarded creative field, or they are weekend warriors. They may be constant nomads, occasional vacationers or armchair travellers, but all with two things in common: an appreciation of art and beauty; and a curiosity about our world.
