About TWP

Welcome to Traveling with Purpose!

We’re a community of travelers who are passionate about meaningful travel.  Our vision is to share about experiences, places, programs, organizations, tours, etc. that will provide you with opportunities for…you guessed it…Traveling with Purpose!

What does that mean?  

Traveling with Purpose focuses on being intentional about going deeper in your travels.  We know that sometimes you want to go beyond just lounging in the sun. You want to bring something more valuable home, like a new craft or skill. Or maybe you’d like to leave behind a piece of yourself at your next destination through genuinely investing in the people or the places you visit.

Below are just a FEW examples of the types of excursions we hope to share with you. You’ll be amazed at all the options out there for short term travel!  It’s so exciting to discover the perfect match for your unique set of interests, abilities, availability, skill and budget.
