Why We Travel

Why We Travel

You and I have come a long way. We truly have.

Think about it.

Think about the decisions that led us here, to this point in our personal history where the cost of entry amounts to all the other choices left behind- every choice we ever had.

Travel is not merely some privileged tourist’s vacation getaway

It is the process in which we map uncharted landscapes, both geographical and psychological.

To travel is to think and act naturally. It is to do what humans have done since the dawn of time.

We travel with aim, vision and faith. We have a will and a way to our existential curiosity

We travel because it is fundamental to the evolution of our species.
