Travel Hero: Lisa Kolster
Cherry LAB’s passion for travelling goes beyond boundaries! We are not only inspired by our own stories and the destinations we have been to. Or inspiration is also stimulated by the unique stories of other globetrotters and power women. That’s why every fortnight we put a new Travel Hero in the spotlight. These are heroes from all over the world and of course from our own country. Maybe you are next!
Her passion for photography and video already showed through her education but thanks to a competition for FOX, she also discovered her passion for travelling! By now, our newest Travel Hero Lisa Kolster already enjoyed the view over Cape Town from Lions Head and she claimed the Preikestolen in Norway, but her bucket list is still endlessly long. On top of all this, she is organizing her own group trip to South-Africa in 2018. Her dream? To inspire other travellers with her personal travel video’s. We like!
1. What makes you a true online personality?
Online personality. Wow, what an honor to be called like that. I don’t see myself as an online personality because what you see in front of the camera is what you get in real life as well. Alright, it’s not everyday that I’m on top of Lions Head in Cape Town or at the Preikestolen, but the way I talk to my followers is the same as I would do on a lazy Sunday on the couch. In my video’s, I try to combine my personality and cool film shots. This way, my followers get the feeling that they are really travelling with me. I get a lot of compliments about this way of filming, always nice to hear!
2. How did the success of your channels start and what is your USP?
3. What is the highlight of your career so far?
That I’ve got the possibility to travel, to inspire others and to learn during these trips. I’m only at the beginning of my adventure which makes every trip and collaboration a highlight. But the highlight of all highlights is the group trip to South-Africa I’m organizing next summer. A group trip where we travel for two weeks through South-Africa in which I give workshops about filming, photography and social media. The first group is almost filled! I can teach my followers everything I know and inspire them to chase their ambitions. And of course, to show the beautiful South-Africa.
4. What can we expect from you in 2018?
5. To top off: what is your ultimate tip for other travellers?
Enjoy! Everyone is so busy with social media these days, they often forgot to truly enjoy the spots they visit. Of course I also recognize this and therefore try to put away my camera sometimes to just watch the beautiful surroundings. I guess I’m not the only one who feels this way. Therefore people: ENJOY!
