“Having been born with a substantial wanderlust tick, I’ve been perpetually focused on the next great adventure. Hopping a flight to some far-flung destination doesn’t have me skipping a beat – I’m endlessly inspired by the cultures, food, colors, and idiosyncrasies I discover. Ironically though, part of what I take away from travel is a deeper sense and appreciation of home. Gaining new perspectives abroad gives me a fresh outlook on my day to day. Here in Minneapolis, I strive to live locally, while thinking globally. I feel so lucky that Knowmad has enabled me to be a part of people’s life journeys.”
– Tara Harvey, Co-Founder & Operations
Tara and her husband Jordan co-founded Knowmad Adventures just six years ago. Shortly after marrying, the two packed their bags and headed South in search of adventure. After living on a Patagonian dairy farm for a little over a year their hopes of starting a travel company developed into a true business venture. Today Knowmad Adventures is based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota just blocks away from Tara and Jordan’s home where they live together with their 2 year-old son Trey. Blogging since 2009, Tara has become a voice in the travel and entrepreneurship communities. Please click the following links for a sample of her work or collaborations:
