“I spend all of my money on travel…” It’s a common phrase that gets tossed around a lot in traveller circles. “I invest in experiences, not things.” And while we travellers are nodding our heads, a lot of people don’t agree.read more
I sit in my strategic airport floor position. Feet crossed, shoes off and notepad open to a blank white page. My flight ticket resting between the bent, loved pages of my passport.

I’m sitting up on my board. One leg hanging over each side, as I let the ocean move me softly and wait for the next set. Only seconds ago, three waves peeled their way towards the shore, beautifully in sync. I didn’t catch any of them. Sometimes, I like to just sit out here.read more

“I think Lisbon reminds everyone of home in some way…”, the blonde-haired Brit shares. We’ve crossed paths every morning in the same café.

I’ve noticed a trend recently: When I’m close to leaving a place, I get this overwhelming feeling of loss. I don’t want to leave. Maybe it’s the way I’m wired. I naturally get attached and connected to a place, through people.read more

WHY DO YOU TRAVEL?
To experience & learn. To explore new paths and re-discover home. To brave loneliness & forge your own path.
You thrive on the differences and observe the similarities. Challenge societal assumptions. Discover a renewed appreciation for home.
Travel is about transformation, not transportation. It’s the journey that goes on within that really matters. And the great thing is, we can tap into this at any time.
Travel brings new perspectives and insights. It removes the filters we see the world through. You see it with new eyes.
Just like home, living abroad is full of challenges. You learn that life goes on without you at home. Yet, you wouldn’t trade in the world for the freedom the suitcase life gives you.
