In July, 2017, I quit an unfulfilling job to travel Europe for three months to challenge the way I viewed the world and allow myself some time for creative exploration.
I started meeting other travelers, many of whom were fellow Americans. Our discussions revolved around our travel aspirations and concerns about social justice issues around the world.
A common theme became evident… people want to immerse themselves in the various cultures of our global community and give back. Through many conversations, and subsequent research, I realized that impact tourism is the new wave.
