We want to empower people to spark meaningful human connections while they are out exploring the world, whether traveling, starting university, or moving to a new country.
The year is 2024. People no longer feel scared to travel alone. They are empowered to meet strangers and jump into new experiences. They don’t have fear or anxiety about meeting new people because the world is now more diverse and inclusive than it ever was. People are no longer ashamed of where they come from or discriminated against because of it. No one thinks that their country is better than others. All over the world, differences are celebrated while curiosity and learning are embraced. Travel is now more impulsive & intentional while visitors immerse themselves in local culture. They ask the important questions when traveling and focus on supporting local communities. They are less focused on participating in carbon-footprint-neutralizing activities because visitors behave more responsibly now; they care about their negative contributions in the world. Slow travel is the norm because it allows visitors the time to really appreciate what it’s like to be a local in that destination. The world is even more globalized than it was before. We’ve swapped anxiety with excitement about new experiences. People living in remote places have best friends in all corners of the world thanks to easy and fun methods to connect. The fear around meeting new people is almost obsolete.
“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you.”
