“If our lives are dominated by a search for happiness, then perhaps few activities reveal as much about the dynamics of this quest — in all its ardour and paradoxes — than our travels. They express, however inarticulately, an understanding of what life might be about, outside the constraints of work and the struggle for survival. Yet rarely are they considered to present philosophical problems — that is, issues requiring thought beyond the practical. We are inundated with advice on where to travel; we hear little of why and how we should go — though the art of travel seems naturally to sustain a number of questions neither so simple nor so trivial and whose study might in modest ways contribute to an understanding of what the Greek philosophers beautifully termed eudaimonia or human flourishing.”
— from The Art of Travel by Alain de Botton

Lisa Codianne Fowler is an award-winning travel journalist who has covered destinations from St. Petersburg, Florida to St. Petersburg, Russia. She’s ridden bum boats in Singapore, swum with sharks in Tahiti and enjoys sailing the Caribbean. Though more nature lover than city girl, she has a special fondness for Paris. But her favorite spot on the planet is her hometown of Sarasota, of which she regularly writes about for the Sarasota CVB. For Visit Florida’s domestic and international markets, she has traveled to every corner of the state, with her articles appearing in at least six languages. Luxury and romantic travel, food and wine, pet-friendly travel and nature are her primary inspirations, though she has covered everything from biker clubs to bath products. Her work has appeared in international, national and local print publications and peppers many an online venue. She is a frequent guest and occasional co-host on Travel Talk Radio Network.
