Experiencing vs. Having
Having a native friend gives you access to true culture, and a way to experience true culture.
Backpacking and Nature
Adventures, seeing local swimming holes, and hotsprings, finding nature retreats.
Finding and Creating Solid Friendships is one of the most important aspects of going on an Extended Travel Adventure. I'll show you shortcuts to creating solid friendships that last while you travel.
Meeting Travel Friends
The Opportunity for Camaraderie
Conferences, Gatherings, Festivals and Classes are a great way to meet people
with similar interest.
For example at a Permaculture conference you might meet other like minded ecological people who love to travel, or at a climbing class you can meet others into climbing. If you’re learning a language in a country you will likely run into foreign travelers doing the same.
A TRAVEL ALLY is someone who you connect with deeply, often on a deep
spiritual or world-view level. These people are often older couples that want to
assist you and will lend a helping hand when you need it, sometimes offering you
a place to stay for a week or more, and advice, and jobs.
You can often meet travel ally’s by helping them out at things like conferences, workshops, and on their property. Usually if you help them, they help you.
Deep Connections Vs. Shallow Connections
It’s all too easy to meet people while traveling, but you will likely not be able to expect the same level of connection and help compared to friends back home. Shallow connections are people you might meet a few times, or travel for a bit with, but not maintain the connections with, or be able to call favors on. Deep connections are usually stronger with romantic travel partners, or people you volunteer with for weeks and months.
Romance, Sex and Love are often what we desire the most, and what we lack the most in our stressful daily lives. Your adventure gives you the opportunity to find the Romance you crave in your life.
Finding Love While Traveling
Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone
Benefits and Tradeoffs of Traveling with Romantic Partners
A year of Travel is a precious, once in a lifetime opportunity to radically improve your health. You can reverse decades of chronic stress, chronic illnesses, and bad habits that have plagued you your whole life.
RESTORING YOUR HEALTH THROUGH TRAVEL
A Travel Adventure is a chance to reconnect with your Purpose.
What do you stand for? What inspires you? Travel can help you find the joy of service to others.
The Ultimate Purpose of Travel. Helping others and transforming yourself.

My name is Raleigh Latham.
I'm a filmmaker, online course creator, ecosystem regeneration fanatic, and 30-day challenge addict.
For the last 3 years, my travel experiences have been the defining moments which have changed my life and made me a better person. From New Zealand, to Indonesia, to Mexico, I've found that travel has open doors in my life that I never even knew existed.
Since I started traveling, I regained my hope in the world, found a new vocation, and started to actually live an exciting life. There are a few opportunities we get in our lives to truly change the path of our life, and I hope the courses I create can help you find the opportunity to change your life for the better.
Currently, I live in Oakland, California, producing films and courses between traveling and creating products with regenerative businesses.
