“Soul of Travel” Podcast and JourneyWoman Amplify Women’s Voices in Travel

The award-winning podcast “Soul of Travel”, hosted by Christine Winebrenner Irick, has joined the JourneyWoman family, creating a powerful forum for women to share their wisdom and inspire meaningful change in travel. (Read the official announcement and watch our video here). 

Created in 2020, Soul of Travel honors the passion and dedication of people making a positive impact in the tourism industry. Each episode features the stories of women who are industry professionals, seasoned travelers, entrepreneurs and community leaders. Now in its fourth season, Soul of Travel has over 120 episodes with guests such as Celine Cousteau, Norie Quintos, Nikki Vargas and Lola Åkerström and Sara Mansouri.

Soul of Travel honors the passion and dedication of women making a positive impact in tourism. In each episode, you’ll hear the story of industry professionals, seasoned travelers, and community leaders who know travel is more than a vacation. It is an opportunity for personal awareness, and it is a vehicle for change. We are thought leaders, action-takers, and heart-centered change makers.

You can expect to hear tips and tricks to make sustainable travel easy, how best to travel the world, and learn about the types of travel experiences you can have to improve your mental health and spiritual wellbeing.

As we evolved, we began to focus on ways we can empower women by sharing our personal journeys and travel stories. As guests share their often winding road in their career journey, we can see that life is, in fact, more about the journey than the destination. We find that each piece is crucial in shaping the woman we will become and in achieving our dreams.

Whether you want to explore the world full-time, plan a road trip or hear some of our sustainable or meaningful travel tips we are confident you will find value in this women’s empowerment podcast.
