Travel Inspiration Series: Emily Sharp

Travel Inspiration Series: Emily Sharp

I recently caught up with a good friend of mine who currently calls Central America home. Emily is a different person than when I first met her nearly 10 years ago. Her friendship has shaped me and her journey continues to inspire me. JG: Emily, you and your husband are on quite an adventure. Tell me, where are you and what are you doing? ES: My husband works for the State Department. We move every few years around the world including the U.S. Currently we are in Managua, Nicaragua. I work at a private international school here in Managua as a counselor. I also teach psychology and leadership. We’ve been here for about 16 months! JG: Language is a core factor, not only in building meaningful community, but in maintaining some sanity in your daily life. What’s the journey of learning the language been like for you? ES: Language has been one of the most difficult things about living here for me. I took high school Spanish but past some very basic phrases I did not retain much. Aaron was able to go to language school for 8 months but it was not an option for me at the time […]

Travel Inspiration Series: Zoe Tuckey

Travel Inspiration Series: Zoe Tuckey

One of my favorite aspects of travel is the friendships I build with fascinating people from all over our sweet world. Zoe is one of those friends who inspire me as a writer, a traveler, and a lover of life. I had a chance to chat with Zoe about some of her experiences and I walked away in typical fashion: stirred in my soul. JG: You’ve had quite a fascinating, dare I say exotic, childhood. Tell me a bit about your family and where you call home. ZT: When people say things like this I always find it strange because I don’t see anything unusual about my upbringing until someone points it out. Yes, I guess I have had a fascinating childhood! My parents moved to India when I was about 2 years old. I’ve done a bit of moving around since then but have found myself back where I started. I think I will always call India home, but also like to see myself as some sort of world citizen. That is if the world will have me! JG: Having grown up in an Eastern culture, what values shaped you and where does travel fit in those values? ZT: People […]

Unexpected Journeys of Travel

Unexpected Journeys of Travel

We stepped onto Australian soil an hour before the New Year’s fireworks. We had friends here. We had a place to stay. We had a timeline for our stay. We had absolutely no idea about anything else. Where would we work? What would this year as temporary residents involve? Who would we meet? How would a year in this city shape us? It’s nearly August now, but the journey plows forward as unexpected as any I could have imagined on the plane ride over. Not only am I a writer and a traveler, but I am now a manager of a small business in the food industry. I never saw it coming. Then again, do we ever? Isn’t that kind of the point of travel? On Initiative January, 2014 The days are long and hot. It’s summertime in Australia. We spend much of our time easing into a working life: applying for tax numbers, opening a bank account, looking for reliable transport, job searching online, writing cover letters. Setting up a new life takes time. Waiting, though, is seldom as easy as it is humbling. The world doesn’t turn on our time, it seems. Once the foundations were set for […]

Books to Spark the Travel Flame

Books to Spark the Travel Flame

Because there is literally no end to the books that inspire us. And that’s kind of the point. Books transport us to places near and far, fathomable and fictional. Captivation first grows in our imagination. Then, the really good books, the ones that matter to us, may actually blossom into more than just words on a page, but words which spark a travel flame.

A Traveler’s Resolve for the New Year

A Traveler's Resolve for the New Year

There’s enough in this world to oppress us into cowardice and fear. We get to choose otherwise. We can take hold of life and embrace it in all its messy, hurtful, beautiful, weird, poetic brilliance. Traveling sets a sublime stage for such bold encounters of abundant life. And no matter what last year looked like for us, we can choose to make a change.
