I saw a sign yesterday that said, "If you can't feed 100 hungry people, feed just one".  It's that type of spirit and attitude that is so critical to keep in mind when we think about how we can make our own contribution to the world. Travel is such a significant part of how we make our markaround the globe.   

When we explore and carry stories of our adventures and experiences back, we inspire others and we drive awareness. When we travel, we help economies grow, families eat, children to be educated and help lives improve without even realizing it. 

And when we give globally and locally, whether it's just a little bit of time volunteering or a long-term project, we make a huge impact. Tourism accounts for over 238 million jobs around the world, and the world's one billionth tourist was just accounted for. Imagine the potential...

Travel, give when you can and where you can, and share your stories.  You're making your own global impact every time you set foot on an adventure. Thank you so much for reading, for caring, for taking the time to always respond, provide invaluable and fun feedback and for opening your mind to the world.  If you need some inspiration on where to begin,
