Travel has the potential to transform your life. When we explore new cultures and places, engage with different people, push our physical limitations, and challenge long-held personal beliefs, we travel like HEROs: With Heart, Engagement, Resolve, and Openness. By doing so, our perspectives of self, others, and the world shift, and our actions and behaviors become more conscious, intentional, and purpose-driven. In other words, we become the HERO of our own lives and begin to transform the lives of those around us. That is the transformational power of travel!

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves.
— Pico Iyer

Motivated by our own profound life-changing travel experiences, we founded the Transformational Travel Council (TTC) to help others transform their lives through travel and to support them in traveling like the HEROs they can be. Our personal adventures had an indelible impact on our lives, and while each of our stories is unique, they share a common thread. We were all searching: For meaningful work, for a sense of real purpose in life, for that spark or passion that would light our lives on fire. We are ALL seekers, in that sense. Bonded by experience, we set out to start a movement, an awakening. Now, there has been a shift in awareness that travel is more than an escape ... that it can be the catalyst which inspires us to create meaningful changes in our lives and the world in which we live.
