“Every human has the same vulnerabilities, the same desires. Everyone wants to feel happy. Everyone wants to feel secure. It really comes down to that base realization that humans are more alike than they are different.”
Bex Shapiro is the Senior Editorial Manager at Intrepid Travel…and one of the brightest women I know. At this point in the writing game, I am very picky about the people and brands I write for. Bex is one of the best editors I’ve ever worked with and Intrepid Travel is an incredible brand to be a part of.
Every time I wrote a travel article, whether I was discovering the joys of Costa Rica, writing a love letter to Havana, or revealing the surprises and delights of Mexico City, I felt good about my work. I owe a lot of those good feelings to Bex.
I’ve never met Bex in person, but I always felt a solid connection with her. Or, as she puts it…we are like-minded souls. It was inevitable that we would get together one day outside of travel writing projects—and here we are with the latest episode of Love Your Enthusiasm.
Bex’s perspective on the state of travel in 2020, how we can shift to a more mindful way of traveling AND living, and her message of hopefulness for the road ahead are just some of the takeaways from this episode.
Very excited to have Bex on the show today. I highly recommend taking an hour out of your week to listen to this one.
