About This Show
How does sustainability fit into our personal aspirations? How can we empower others to follow a similar path?

The path isn’t always sunshine and rainbows but we can, and will, work together in an effort to make the world a better place. One small step, one freeing trip, at a time.
The podcast for those who love to wander.
