Journeys with Meaning
TRAVEL THAT TRANSFORMS
featuring India’s most inspiring environmental & social solutions
We travel responsibly.
Wherever we go, we stay with the local community. We eat the food they cook; sometimes, we even help them harvest it. We learn about how they live. Bypassing the crowded tourist circuits, we journey to India’s prettiest landscapes, villages, and home-stays.
We unpack compelling perspectives and practices that help us restore our connection with the natural world, with other cultures, and with the quiet voices within our own hearts.
AND THAT’S NOT ALL!
We test our fitness & our attitude as we hike across the magnificent Himalayas; we confront our fears as we raft its turbulent rivers; we encounter wildlife up close in pristine forests.
When we add to this kind of travel,
- Perspective and context building
- Conversations with inspiring innovators
- Hands-on work on sustainability projects across India
it truly becomes… travel that transforms.
