Excerpt from interview:
HOW DID YOU GET THE IDEA FOR PURPOSEFUL NOMAD?
We started Purposeful Nomad to connect people with vetted programs and organizations, so there’s a positive impact on both sides. We really wanted to rewrite what community engagement looks like by not having it be something glossed over for tourists.
We also saw a lack of programs that offered a blend of activities. We saw women’s biking, women’s wine tours and just volunteering, and Jess and I like to do all these things. We love having a beach day, but we also like to go work on a farm. We enjoy homestays, but sometimes we want to go zen out at a spa.
Tourism has such a negative connotation – and rightfully so – but what we are trying to do is rewrite the language, and make tourism a positive force in the world. It really does change people, and I believe for the better.
