07

In the seventh issue of Paid Leave, we take a closer look at how work and travel intersect, and share unique perspectives about what it’s like to take on creative endeavors abroad. Each story, told through the lens of designers, writers, and modern entrepreneurs, explores how travel can open the door to new opportunities. In Principles of Modern Travel, we chat with Nina Klein to get her input on how to find inspiration in new places—something our latest LOJEL Playlist can also help with.
