    Travel is changing, and fast. A new generation of free-spirited, adventure-minded explorers is no longer content with just seeing; they want to be doing. When they step out of their familiar routines, they don’t want just to drift through foreign lands as outsiders looking in. They want to interact, they want to learn and they want to impact the communities they visit.

    In recent years, “giving back” has principally meant one of two things: giving time (a practice commonly known today as “voluntourism”) or giving money, lately in the form of charity fundraiser challenges. Although both have been subject to heavy scrutiny these day, they are definitely ways through which the generosity of travellers can be harnessed in beneficial ways.

    It’s all part of that new-generation, free-spirited and adventure-minded desire for there to be more to travel than just getting somewhere and being there. After all, shouldn’t it be possible for young, altruistic travellers to enjoy a holiday that actually means something; adventures enriched by the knowledge that your presence has a positive and lasting impact on the people and communities you visit?

    ADVENTURES LESS ORDINARY shows that it is possible and explains how it can be done. Drawing on the combined expertise of leading voices advocating for travel that makes a difference, this is the definitive handbook for compassionate people seeking the ultimate adventure – one guided as much by the good you give as the good you get.
