The Inner Picture Stories Podcast aims to readdress the balance between the outside world and the one that lies within us all. Its goal is to reconnect travel and wisdom – two of life’s great gateways which we are all far too easily disconnected from. In this podcast, hosted by Jellis Vaes – professional photographer, writer and world traveler – you are invited on a journey. A journey of wonder and discovery. So tune in and join the conversations with some of the most fascinating people we share this planet with.
Together, we will deconstruct and draw out lessons of wisdom about life and this world, and seek out answers to what makes the difference to the quality of people’s lives that you in turn can use in yours.
It’s true that no one ever said life would be easy, but it is also true that no one ever said you had to go through it alone.
Brace yourself, and let the journey begin!

It was through experiencing the thrills of this world – together, that they not only saved their own marriage, but also came to rediscover themselves as individuals and stumbled upon their
