Yet not everyone can (or even wants to) travel.

Lack of time, money, a handicap, reducing your carbon footprint, and things beyond our control are all obstacles to exploring the world.

We often hear facts - but we want stories.

History is full of legends and tales. Tales of battles and love. Tales of extraordinary achievements by civilizations and individuals. But it’s also real stories about families and everyday people.
