This year Knowmad Adventures grew from the passion project of a few, to something altogether larger than ourselves – a movement of independent-minded explorers, a sum much greater than its parts. It’s been an absolute whirlwind full of joys and, at times, seemingly unconquerable challenges.
Our Minneapolis-based team has doubled in size, crafting more than 200 adventures in 2015. Our South American operations teams have grown stronger in Chile, Argentina, Antarctica, Peru and Ecuador, while continuing to expand into paths undiscovered in Uruguay, Brazil and Costa Rica.
Jordan and I have sought to find the balance between being new parents and leaders in our mission to make the world a better place through travel – one more connected and understanding.
We end almost everyday exhausted, yet thankful. Thankful for the opportunity to tackle those challenges
with talented people and friends. Thankful to the Knowmad community – always supportive and encouraging. Thankful for family and laughter.
May your world be filled with many reasons to be thankful this year,
Tara, Jordan & the Knowmad Team
Un Beso, Tara
