You’ve read all the works of Paul Theroux. Your travel checklist includes The Louvre, The Hermitage, The Victoria and Albert. You are a lifelong learner with a curious heart and a fascination with how we got here and what makes all humans essentially the same, yet different. When travelling, it’s not surprising to find you sitting at an outdoor cafe watching lives unfold before you. You wonder about the couple sitting two tables away. Does her stern upper lip mean they’ve just begun an argument?
You rarely order off the menu but rather point to a dish being enjoyed by a fellow patron. You want to live like a local. You’re likely to return home from your trip with one signature piece emblematic of the country – maybe a tagine from Morocco. Maybe a beaded tunic from India. And maybe you find yourself humming the soundtrack of Don’t Cry for Me Argentina as you clear customs enroute home from Buenos Aires.

I’m Diane Molzan, founder of the Digital Travel Academy
I’m a traveller just like you. My travel style is Allocentric but truthfully, I’m probably a mix of all of the travel styles – depending on the moon, the tides and whatever hormonal shifts are going on with me at the moment.
I started the Digital Travel Academy to show other travellers how they can build a career out of doing what they love most – travelling. I’ll be sharing all my insider tricks and tips. And if I come across a great industry deal, I’ll give you the scoop on that too.
So be sure to stay subscribed.
In the meantime, I am building a course that offers a step-by-step guide that will show you how to start your own travel business and make good money at it. More details on that to follow but for now, let’s keep in touch.
You can drop me a line any time at email@example.com. I love connecting with fellow travellers.
Until next time, safe travels!
