Hi Adventure Philanthropists!
We did it! After 31 days of fundraising, y’all donated $6,773, helping me exceed my Kickstarter goal by 12% - YAHOO! Thank you all so much for your support and kind words!
As if exceeding the Kickstarter goal wasn’t enough – we’re celebrating another piece of fantastic news! Earlier this month, I learned I’ve been nominated for 2013 National Geographic Traveler of the Year award!
Pinch me, ‘cause I can’t think of how much better it can get!
And now for our articles this week:

Take a peek at all the fun I had:
Photo of the Week: Royal Clipper Ship
