Our motto, “Travel Changes People, People Change the World”, comes from a shared experience that means more than a plane ticket or scratch off of a map; they’re connections to people and places that stick with us for a lifetime.  As EdOdyssey alumni, teachers, educational leaders or passionate travelers, we have been fortunate enough to share meaningful travel experiences together! We’ve all come to understand that travel impacts us in all sorts of ways.

Travel changes us. Exploring a new country, jumping into an adventure, and opening your mind to unfamiliar cultures define our perspective as we grow and evolve. Better yet, travel teaches us about ourselves, in many different ways that we can’t anticipate. 

Everyone has a story about their time abroad - What’s yours?  

During these next two weeks, we want to hear your story and how travel has impacted you and your life by using the hashtag #TravelChangesPeople on Instagram and/or Twitter.

Inspire others by participating in our summer campaign! Check out the details below!

There’s TWO ways you can participate:

1. Share a meaningful travel picture, or travel video, on your personal social media account (on Instagram and/or Twitter) with the hashtag #TravelChangesPeople and respond to one of the three questions in your caption:

  • What was your biggest takeaway during your time abroad?

  • How has travel changed your outlook on other cultures?

2. Email us at and submit a meaningful travel picture or travel video along with your caption responding to one question above.
