About People

It’s easy to get stuck in our little part of the universe, to focus only on what’s in front of us. But there’s a big wide world out there, filled with people – some strikingly similar and others remarkably different to ourselves – who are exploring, learning and living on every corner of the globe.

Experiencing diverse cultures, unusual lifestyles and extraordinary people helps to broaden the mind, ignite the soul and teach us more than a textbook ever could.

From visiting remote tribes in the Amazon to meeting some of America’s wackiest residents, travel and adventure inspire us to see the world differently.
