As the weather changes and we’re whisked into the holiday season, we’re reminded to take a step back and reflect on the exciting developments and events of this past year.
Here at Knowmad Adventures, 2017 has been a year full of gleeful anticipation. Founders Tara and Jordan welcomed their second child, a baby girl, to the family. The rest of the team took epic exploratory trips: riding across Patagonian pampas on horseback; snorkeling with penguins in the Galapagos Islands; watching the sun set over the surreal landscape of the Atacama Desert; and following the footsteps of the ancient Incas on the trek to Machu Picchu.
The actual act of taking a trip, or having a baby, boldly punctuates one’s year. Yet really it’s the thrill of the planning – a sort of reverence for the journey as a whole – that defines the moments that add up. We hand-crafted itineraries to South America for over 500 travelers this year, and it’s sharing in the creation and ensuing excitement for the trip to come that gives us some of our greatest joys.
Wishing you a year filled with many adventures to look forward to,
