A passion for travel, reading, and giving back to those who give the world to us.
The Makings of The Wordy Traveler
Even as a child I was a travel nerd. Maybe it was because I was an only child. Maybe it was because I was raised by parents who didn't believe in television. Either way I grew up reading books and vividly imagined traveling to the places in them. I built the lost city of Pompei in my sand box, transformed a dirt pile in my backyard into an elephant crossing India, and tried to convince my friends we were sailing across an ocean on an inflatable swimming pool raft.
As an adult my love of reading and travel only intensified. Everywhere I ventured, from traversing the countryside of Romania to sailing to an unpopulated island in the Caribbean, I had a book in hand that told of that location's history and past travelers' experiences. A year ago I wanted to find a book subscription box that perfectly combined my two loves of travel and reading. I searched high and low but couldn't find one. It was through that unsuccessful search that The Wordy Traveler was born.
However, I wanted to make sure it wasn't just another subscription box. It wasn't a box about saving dime but helping others have a better life. That The Wordy Traveler didn't just fulfill wanderlust but also gave back to the people and places we go to fulfill it. So a portion of the proceeds of every single box supports the efforts to provide education for women and girls around the world. In addition all the teas are sourced are from ethical farms and the featured artists are paid a livable age. This box isn't just about finding something great it is about doing something great. Together we are changing the world one book at a time.
