Why We Do It

We believe that by traveling in a deeper, more engaged, and more purposeful way, travel has the power to transform our lives and create real, meaningful, and lasting change in the world … That travel, at its roots, is about exploration — of other people, places, and cultures but also of the hidden and unknown parts of our own hearts and souls … It's about adventuring off into the unknown, exploring the world and ourselves, and being open to whatever it is that we find … It’s about connecting with new people, places, and cultures and wrestling with ideas and perspectives and beliefs that simultaneously inspire us and challenge us to our core ... It’s about building compassion, understanding, empathy, and awareness and is the ultimate tool for growth, learning, and global citizenry … It’s about being awed by the beauty of nature and feeling that sense of being so small (yet so powerful) … It's about reconnecting with ourselves so that we can live with more meaning, purpose, and intention … and make a lasting impact in the world.
