Barbara Noe Kennedy
Founder & Publisher
In October 2015 I left my job of 23 years at National Geographic Travel Publishing to strike out on my own, to share my dream of using travel to break down global barriers. In addition to producing hundreds (seriously!) of guidebooks and travel books, I wrote (and still am writing) travel stories for various publications, including the Los Angeles Times, London Telegraph, NatGeo Travel Intelligent Blog, Fodors, and more. I also served as expert on NatGeo Expeditions to France and Italy, and I'm teaching classes on Travel Writing and Creative Nonfiction at Graduate School USA.

JOY: The sense that we are connected with something so real that it will break every boundary or container we try to confine it in, a sense of something overflowing, pushing outward.
