Hi Adventure Philanthropists,
Tomorrow we celebrate International Women’s Day and this year’s theme is “Inspiring Change” -- a rallying cry to help the next generation of women reach their full potential.
Let’s collectively take a few moments this weekend to pay tribute to the strides women and have made over the years – and more importantly – think about how we can continue to work towards our ultimate goal: equality for all.
Book Review > Earlier this week I receive the highest compliment from my Belgium friend Kim, who I met in the famous Bolivian salt flats:
I just wanted to let you know our meeting in Uyuni, your website, your newsletter and your book inspired me of doing some volunteering myself. Not with the same ambitions you have, but with the same goal: "leave the world, even just a small part of it, a better place."
3 Cheers for Kim! Thank you for taking action!

Favorite: MESSAGE: Scottish Highlands *Videos*

Photo of the Week: W Trek, Torres del Paine, Argentina
Working my way through Patagonia, I stopped off at some of the region’s most beautiful mountains including Torres del Paine, one of Argentina’s most famous national parks. The entire W Trek takes about 5 days to hike, so I only did a small section. Here I am on my solo hike up to Grey Glacier, at the tip of the trail.
