The sixth issue of Paid Leave provides an in-depth look at how travelers can fuel the body and mind throughout their journeys. In Local Time, contributor Kate Van Petten leads us on a food- and art-filled tour around Chicago. Then, we turn to the latest LOJEL Playlist, an inspired take on musical “soul food” curated by JJ Adrian. We also seek advice from our Principle of Modern Travel about how to remain well nourished (both physically and mentally) while abroad; and catch up with the #LojelCollective’s Mark Rammers and Minna Lee about the mementos they bring home from their travels. Each story offers insight about the intentional approach we should take in order to better experience new places—and to come home feeling replete.
