Welcome the the Bachelor of Travel.
A site dedicated to travel stories, adventures and to how our perception can transform the mundane into something magical.
A conscious effort to approach travelling as a collection of ideas, beliefs, lessons and core principles which very loosely can be incorporated into a self-created curriculum that teaches us about the value of travel.
A Bachelor in Travel has no entrance requirements other than a willingness to be exposed to things outside our comfort level.
A Bachelor in Travel has no time restrictions. It cannot be completed within a 3 or 4 year period but will be something you continuously work on throughout your lifetime.
A Bachelor in Travel is free. Resources and study materials can be found all around us.
Lastly, a Bachelor in Travel is fully customizable. Take what you want. Add what you need.
What does travelling mean to you?
How do you define the act of travelling – the journey?

Physical as well as psychological aspects.
Spiritual and emotional.
Detectable or imperceptible.
Conscious or unconscious.
Moving to another country.
Or visiting a new country.
Going on a hiking adventure.
Or having a one year round the world trip.
But that is not all.
You can travel through taste.
Explore through the sounds of music.
Change by the words of a poet.
Travelling can be as simple as….
Reading a book.
Trying a different cuisine.
Dancing to the sound of some foreign music.
a new language.
the stories of a dear friend.
The ways we define travel pale in comparison to the ways travel can define us.
Within our routine, within our everyday life, the movement of travel shapes us into the people we become. In these pages, you will find stories that hope to inspire, entertain and motivate.
Thirteen core principles are used to explain the path of learning through travel, the ways we can find joy in the little things and adventures in our routine.
