Travel awakens something in those willing to explore beyond their everyday boundaries. It has the power to transform us, help us grow, and make the world a better shared place. Find Your Unknown is an invitation to join us outside as we go places we’ve never been, connect with people we’ve yet to meet, and explore all the world has to offer.

Get out of the safe and the routine, the familiar and known…and leave a space for uncertainty. These words go against every piece of advice I was ever given as a kid, which is why learning to believe them was probably one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. The harsh truth is that the more room you leave for the unknown to occur, the greater chance you have find something off the beaten path, learn something new about yourself, or even find that elusive comfort zone and go beyond it.


We were never built to be sedentary, we were built to explore and seek new horizons often putting ourselves in challenging situations that make us question how we even got there. If there is one thing I have realized from a lifetime of being on the road, it’s that sometimes the greatest journeys you ever take are the internal ones.
