Share your story

Sharing stories help create greater understanding between people

Do you have a story about how travel has changed you?

Or is there someone you’ve encountered closer to home who’s changed your perspective about something?

Maybe you chatted with someone on a bus and you saw the world a little differently after that conversation.

Perhaps you visited a remote or unusual part of the planet and learned more about the environment and how we all depend on each other.

Or maybe you took a trip to a place you’ve always wanted to go and you feel forever different.

We’d love to share your story on our blog

3 tips for your stories:

  1. Keep it short. If we need more information, we’ll ask you.
  2. Avoid identifying specific individuals.
  3. Just in case there’s a technical glitch at our end or yours, save your story on a different document before adding it here. We don’t want you to lose it.

We don’t publish every story, but if we do publish yours we’ll use your first name only (and never your contact details).

These prompts may help you tell your story:
 
~ Brief description of your experience – where, when, what was happening, etc.
~ If this involved a new culture, environment or country for you, how was it different?
~ How has it changed how you see yourself?
~ How has it changed how you see or understand or feel about the wider world?
~ Has it made you question any assumptions you previously had about the people you met or the place you were in?
~ Is there anything you might do differently now as a result?
~ What would you like others to learn from your experience?
~ What did you most enjoy about it?
