12 Countries 12 Months

What exactly is wellness anyway?

There are places around the world where people live happier and healthier than we do in the west. How are they doing it? Do people even think about their health or are they simply living their best with what they’ve got? What cultural influences come into play?

Embarking on a journey of discovery, I left my home to travel, live, and find the stories—twelve countries in twelve months.

Meeting diverse people from different walks of life, and learning how they take care of themselves, gave me new perspective. Immersing myself into alternate lifestyles offered authentic experiences and personal connections that resonated with me in countless and meaningful ways. These interactions have the power to positively impact our lives and that’s why I look for stories in the everyday.

Traveling from South America to Asia and Europe, I’ve learned the most from and about others in their own backyards. For me, travel is itself an antidote for holistic wellbeing and part of a fulfilling life.
