What’s Next?

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness…”
– Mark Twain

What does this mean for the Roadless Travelers?  Does this mean that we are not encouraging travel and different cultural experiences?  Does this mean that we are no longer Roadless Travelers?  Absolutely not.

After three years living abroad, deeply immersed in a different culture and a different world, the founders of the Roadless Travelers have returned back to the US.  However, that doesn’t mean that we are not changed – our perspectives, values and attitude towards life has changed.  And traveling was the platform that made all of the learning and changes possible.

Our lives have changed, our worlds have changed, and so too this site is changing.

I’m going to call on friends and fellow travelers to help put together a collection of advice, tips, and lessons that we have learned along the way.  Things that make us feel like we are walking the right path, even though everything around us may be screaming “Turn back!”

And most importantly, how we can take the lessons that we have learned outside of the US, and bring them back with us to face the day-to-day challenges here.  We can’t forget what happened to us and how we changed when we were abroad, so lets stop fighting it and make it part of us.  With everything that is going on around us – politics, economics, etc. – it is more important than ever that we continue to be citizens of the world.

At this time, I feel it appropriate to look into the archives and bring back a post that RoK had written when the site was launched.

Can I Join the Roadless Travelers?

So to answer your question: “Can I be a Roadless Traveler?”

Yes, anyone can.
