Listen: The Story of the Journey is the Journey in the Story with Gregory George of Follow Summer

 

On today’s podcast, Sean Heath had a chat with Gregory George, the Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief for Follow Summer. They discussed the irony of missing a large part of an experience by trying to record that experience to share on social media, the crucial part that true storytelling plays in the industry, how a travel writer actually needs to TRAVEL before they can communicate an experience with any credibility, and just how memorable a personalized interaction with a smaller chain’s staff can be.

(Keep Austin Friendly!) “It’s not just about just checking your bags and getting off the plane,” said George. “It’s about really sharing that daily experience of the joy of travel, the good and the bad.”
