Working to support a cause while traveling can be a beautiful way to explore the world.


Volunteering while traveling has led to some of the most extraordinary experiences in my life and introduced me to amazing people. I believe in the power of sustainable tourism as a way to preserve the natural beauty of this planet and various organizations offer unique opportunities to bring your contribution to a worthy cause. The blog and the book I have written serve the purpose of inspiring people like you to pack their bags and venture off to see the world while volunteering their time and knowledge to great non-profits.
