WATCH HERE: Lisa Niver on Soul of Travel

Soul of Travel interview series features conversations with tourism professionals and travelers sharing their stories; their heart, soul, and passion that drives them to be a part of the travel community.

Show notes: I hope you enjoy this lively conversation with Lisa Ellen Niver, M.A. Education. We discuss her travels, which have taken her to over 100 countries on 6 continents, and how she brings these experiences to the classroom and programs for We Said Do Good. We also dive into her recent article for Teen Vogue, “How a Swimming Lesson From Olympian Markus Rogan Changed My Life” and I look forward to diving in (pun is probably intended) to this experience. We also talk about saying “yes” to opportunities and asking for what we want!


“You crave to be the person you are when you travel when you come home.” In this lively episode, ‘Diving Journalist’ Lisa Niver shares tales of her epic moments of travel, including 7 years at sea and a walk across Asia – amongst other incredible things. This episode will transport you to Thailand, the Galapagos, and more, and connect you to the question: “why do I travel?”
