One day your life will flash before your eyes, make it worth watching.
Outward journeys often lead to inward revelations. These insights are priceless in guiding a person to a meaningful existence. A three-week solo journey across seven European countries taught me to enjoy my own company. Roasted Guinea Pig in Ecuador taught me the relativity of the concept of normal. Becoming lost in Beijing, only to be kindly directed back to my hotel by a stranger, taught me perseverance as well as the immensity of a small gesture in a time of need.
Travel is a process of making the unknown familiar. Revealed to the wanderer are bits of the extraordinary generously proffered within the extended hand of experience which become part of the self. A candle is never dimmed by lighting another. It is within this vein that I created this organization to place the bliss of travel within the palms of young hands who otherwise might never be led by its wisdom to wonderous new places. I thank you for your time and interest and hope that our paths one day cross.
Yours in Wander,
