Immersive Travel. Intentional Living.

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Trading Places is about experiencing how people live around the world. We seek inspiration, authenticity, joy, creativity, and adventure. We trade places  to discover how other people live,
work, eat, play, travel, and find happiness. Our mantra is “living on purpose.” We are:

Fueled by insatiable curiosity 

Motivated by connection with others

Grounded by intentional living

Nurtured by kindness

Our mission is to inspire you on the journey to turn the ordinary into something extraordinary.


From exploring new places through travel and food, to designing the environment around us at home, 
to nurturing ourselves and others, begin with one of our lifestyle departments:

Many travelers yearn for authenticity and genuine cultural exchanges — to become part of a place, not just pass through it with an outsider’s perspective. Our Explore Department will inspire the nomad in you with tales of places and their people, travel guides, how-to tips, reviews & more.


Food, glorious food. It’s not only essential for life, but in our opinion it’s one of the best things about living. In the Taste Department, you’ll find explorations of food and libations in all their glory — from top chefs and restaurants to street food vendors and markets.


If you have the wanderlust gene, but also love home and creating the most enjoyable, good-energy space you possibly can, this department is for you. The Dwell Department is all about where we stay and how we make our homes, with design inspiration, lifestyle hacks, hotel reviews, travel accommodation tips, & all things style.


The simple joy of play — it’s essential for a happy life. Here you’ll find all the fun stuff, from adventures and sports, to lifestyle trends and gear. In our Play Department, you might read a review about a new product or gadget; you’ll also meet interesting people who share what creating their most authentic world means to them.


We need physical, mental and emotional restoration — which often comes in the form of wellness, such as spas or fitness; but can also come from volunteering and cultivating a life of learning. In the Nurture Department you will find experiences for self-care and opportunities for giving back to others.
