World View

Here in our World View section, we will introduce you to individuals from all over the globe. Whether you are an avid traveler or a social butterfly, the chances are low that you have spoken to someone from every place on Earth. As we get to know the people we meet along the way, so will you. 

We’ll ask about their passions, comforts, and ambitions. Each post is an opportunity for the subjects to speak directly to you. We hope that you will get to experience their lives and cultures without having to jump on an airplane. Although, we do hope you'll feel inspired enough to take your own journey somewhere and get to know the friends you make along the way.

We think the blog will help people get familiar with the unfamiliar, and expose the threads that weave through all of our lives; Love, Family and Friends.
