Traveler Hartlee spent her summer break exploring Tanzania, a beautiful country where 38% of the land is set aside for conservation (mostly national parks and wildlife preserves).
When we asked her what her favorite three things are about a new place, she responded:
“I love eating (and learning how to cook) the food, exploring nature, and connecting with people over both vastly different and remarkably similar experiences.” - Traveler Hartlee Johnston
So whether you’re at home or exploring new lands, here’s to eating the local food,
connecting with people wherever you go,
& to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

“The Longyi is a traditional piece of clothing worn by men and women for everyday life in Myanmar. Even in the modern day capital of Yangon, you will see most people wearing a Longyi, whether it is in the office or doing normal daily activities. It’s very much a part of the national identity."

Bolivia is a beautiful and diverse country in South America.
It’s known for its awesome Andes mountains and for having lots of llamas (¿Como te llama?).
Over the years, we’ve been able to help six awesome businesses in Bolivia.
From Señora Natalia and "Las 11 Estrellas" (The Eleven Stars), who own a company selling blankets in El Alto. They used their microloan to buy wool so that they could make more blankets and grow their business.
“We made a guided bike tour through Indonesia from Bali to Komodo – beginning in Bali eastbound to the vast unknown islands Sumbawa, Moyo, Satonda, Komodo, Rinca and Flores.
A beautiful old sailing boat brought us to the coast of different islands and our bike tour took us through remote little villages with very friendly and curious people."
