The Bleisure Traveller Team

“We have travelled to the destinations with great passion, experienced them, researched them professionally. And together with our authors, we present them personally, honestly and factually. Because we are Bleisure Travellers ourselves and live and love the topics of Bleisure Travel, Remote Work and Workation as beautiful aspects of New Work. New Work, new inspirations.”

With Bleisure Traveller, we present exciting metropolises and destinations online and in print to extend your business trip by a few days privately or to work remotely for weeks and months and plan time off. We also provide information on relevant business travel topics in the context of New Work. We love to extend the stay! We love to work from anywhere!

Kai Böcking, Co-Founder & Publisher

Ever since I started working in television, I have always had to do with travel. The TV formats, which I only presented in the beginning and later produced in parts, almost all took place abroad. In this way I became a travel professional, with the aim of making the most of every trip. Every year I travel for TV productions, for Bleisure Traveller and privately for about 200 days a year. That’s a lot of days, a lot of airlines, hotels and discoveries, but also a lot of disappointments and wrong booking decisions.
The Bleisure Traveller is the experience I have gained around the globe over the last 30 years. I travel for business, but still want to get to know the country, the people and the cultures – and to relax or combine life and work for several weeks in a faraway place.

Sylvie Konzack, Co-Founder, Publisher & Editor-in-Chief

Being free and soaking up diversity – for me, that only happens in its purest form when I’m travelling. And professionally, I have probably always sought this as well: whether during my studies in cultural studies and communication, later as a hospitality editor, or today as a freelance journalist for various magazines and co-founder of Bleisure Traveller. Until 2017, I spent many years looking over the shoulders of the creators of travel experiences as editor-in-chief of the hotel trade magazine First Class, was on the road a lot, experienced and discussed many trends with many participants. And one thing has stayed with me for a long time: that people today are looking for more meaning in their work, that they want to be valued – and that professional travel should be more for them than just rushing from A to B. Travelling, living and working for a few days or several weeks in faraway places. For new perspectives, ideas, energies. We are happy to have been able to inspire you to do this for several years now. > sylvie@bleisuretraveller.com

Corinna Döpkens, Resort Business Travel

I’m really good at my job when I’m travelling somewhere on the globe and only have a certain window of time in the day to “work through”. I was influenced early on by my time as a flight attendant with Lufthansa, and later I studied for my parallel degree in tourism business at the crew hotel and wrote most of my thesis at the airport or at the Lufthansa base in Frankfurt. That was and is my working rhythm and the key to success.
Many companies have just realised this and offer their employees flexible working models. New Work and travel are closely linked – Bleisure Travel and Workation promote motivation and inspiration. As an expert for Business Travel & Mobility, I am pleased to report on the latest developments and trends in Bleisure Traveller during this exciting time of transformation and to provide impulses for a new era of business travel. > corinna@bleisuretraveller.com
