Travel is always, in some way, transformative — an experience that leaves its mark long after the homecoming. Traveling with a focus, not just with a specific place but a specific objective in mind is even more potent in its power to change our perspective. With the tools available to today’s traveler, more and more project based travel stories are being told while initiatives blossom on personal, community, and global levels. This week, we want to zero in on the particular experience of not simply traveling, but traveling to achieve a goal, to undertake something that could not be done at home.
