Escape with travel writer and

author Nina Karnikowski

Season 1, Ep. 7

Today’s guest is Australian travel writer and author, Nina Karnikowski. Nina traverses the globe in search of wild, off the beaten path places and stories that promote slower, more sustainable ways to travel.

 

Nina’s well-worn passport has no shortage of stamps as she has visited over 60 countries, travelling to many of them on assignment for Australia and New Zealand’s top publications. When she’s not on the road, Nina calls the bohemian heartland of Byron Bay her home.

 

Her first book Make a Living Living features 26 creatives from around the globe whose wanderlust and words of wisdom will inspire you to live a life less ordinary and carve out a career doing what you love.
